2008 Infiniti M Review

Note: This review was created when the 2008 Infiniti M was new.

The M delivers a capable ride, powerful performance and advanced technology features that make it a very competitive luxury sedan. If you're in the market for a luxury car, you should also consider the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class.

2008 Infiniti M Overview

The 2008 Infiniti M is praised by critics for its strong performance, upscale interior and long list of standard features that make it very competitive with the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes E-Class, Acura RL and Lexus GSForbes reports, "We can attest to its great driving dynamics and almost-excellent design elements; the question now is, will you take the time to check it out as well? We think you should." With a lower starting sticker price, the M may be the best deal in its class. The Chicago Sun-Times says "The M is a no-excuses player in the sports/luxury sedan field, and its price advantage is icing on the cake."

One drawback to the M, however, is its surprisingly poor fuel economy.  Large luxury sedans are not known for their fuel-efficiency, but the MPG rating of the M places it near the bottom of its class.

IntelliChoice gives the 2008 M35 a value rating of "Excellent" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership as compared to other vehicles in its class. IntelliChoice recognized the M with a best overall value award, the highest retained value award, lowest repair costs and a SmartChoice Ownership award.

The M comes as either the M35, with a six-cylinder engine or the M45, with an eight-cylinder engine. The M35 comes in thee available trim levels, including the base rear-wheel drive, the M35 Sport with added sport tuned suspension and trim options and the M35x with all-wheel drive. The M45 comes in three trims levels: the base rear-wheel drive, the M45 Sport and the new M45x with standard all-wheel drive.
