Today, at a social event in Beverly Hills, Infiniti unveiled its luxurious sedan – the 2011 Infiniti M. The car looks really good- its pure Infiniti, and most probably will compete very well with most of medium to large limousines like the new 5 Series from BMW, A6 from Audi or E Class from Mercedes.
Infiniti’s halo sedan, which is scheduled to go on sale in late March 2010, will be available in two model designations – the Infiniti M56 with an all-new 420-horsepower 5.6-liter VVEL Direct Injection Gasoline(TM) V8 and the Infiniti M37 with a 330-horsepower 3.7-liter VVEL V6. The Infiniti M56 and M37 will be offered in a choice of rear-wheel drive or with Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system.
The new 2011 M will come with allot of gadgets and technologies – Active Noise Control, an innovative Forest
Air(TM) climate control system, “Infiniti Drive” selectable drive mode control, Active Trace Control, Eco Pedal and enhanced Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System. The Infiniti M also introduces the new Blind Spot Intervention(TM) (BSI) System, a world’s first system that alerts the driver if another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area and helps return the vehicle back toward the center of the lane of travel away from the other vehicle.
Other available 2011 Infiniti M features include a Bose® 2-channel 10-speaker premium audio system or Bose® Studio Surround® sound system with digital 5.1-channel decoding and 16 speakers (including two personal speakers mounted in the shoulders of each front seat), heated steering wheel, climate-controlled front seats, semi-aniline leather and genuine White Ash wood trim that has been enhanced with real silver powder.
