Geneva Preview: 2011 Infiniti M European Spec

Article by Christian A., on March 26, 2010

European consumers will applaud Infiniti's announcement that the M Performance Sedan, which will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, will be offered as a petrol and diesel, with a hybrid scheduled down the line.

Deliveries are scheduled for September. On display, we should expect to find the Infiniti M37 with a 3.7-liter VVEL V6 petrol. Its engine produces 320 PS (235 KW / 316 hp) and up to 360 Nm of torque.

There will also be the Infiniti M30d, the automaker's first diesel model. The car's 3.0-liter V6 produces 238 PS (175 kW / 235 hp) and up to 550 Nm of torque. On the rear-wheel drive show cars, the engines will be mated to a seven-speed Adaptive automatic transmission. Infiniti has not yet provided specs for the hybrid version.

Features include a suspension made up of a double wishbone front and rear multilink, speed sensing steering and assistive antilock brakes.

We'd also find the Infiniti Drive with Eco and Sport modes. Buyers may opt for a four-wheel active steering system, and a blind spot notification that prevents the car from being steered into another car.

The car has an Active Noise Control, which plays opposing phase waves through the audio system to cancel out any noise from the engine.

Road noise and other environmental sounds are also reduced in this leather lined cabin with other soundproofing features. Going on sale later this year are the five-seat saloon Infiniti M37 and M30d while the Infiniti M-Line Hybrid will be available in 2011.
