The Infiniti M is a four door, five passenger full size luxury sport sedan that is offered in both six and eight cylinder variants, as well as a green gas/electric hybrid version.  The $47,700 Infiniti M37 is powered by a 3.7 Liter V6 producing 330 HP and 270 lb-ft of torque channeled through an electronically controlled 7 speed automatic with Adaptive Shift Control and a manual shift mode that offers sequentially selectable gearshifts as well as Downshift Rev Matching that delightfully blips the throttle helping the M into the next lowest gear and gets an estimated 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway.
 
The M37 is easily recognizable by its muscular fluidic design, standard HIDs and 18 inch split five spoke alloys; while on the inside the M offers an Infiniti Intelligent Key with illuminated push button starter, a six speaker AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 stereo with USB audio inputs, 7 inch color display with rear view monitor, leather wrapped power adjustable front buckets, Japanese Ash wood trim and a power sliding/tilting one touch glass moon roof with sliding sunshade.
 
The $49,850 Infiniti M37x adds intelligent all wheel drive for $49,850.  The $59,100 M56 gets the same great features, but with the power of a 5.6 Liter V8 making 420 HP and 417 lb-ft of torque while returning 16 MPG around town and 24 MPG at speed, and the $61,600 M56x gets all wheel drive, while the $53,700 M Hybrid moves thanks to the combination of a 3.5 Liter V6 with Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid with a 50 kW electric motor and a lithium ion battery pack that is good for a combined 360 HP and 258 lb-ft of gas burning torque and an additional 199 lb-ft from its electric companion and gets an estimated 27 MPG in the city and as much as 32 MPG on the highway; however Infiniti left out the downshift rev matching feature.  The Infiniti M is an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
