PEBBLE BEACH, CA, Aug. 14 /CNW/ - Infiniti today provided an advanced
look at the all-new 2011 Infiniti M performance luxury sedan at the 59th
Annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. This is the third generation of
Infiniti's popular M and the first to be sold across all of Infiniti's 32
markets around the world, including Western Europe.
Like the current Infiniti M, the next-generation design will be offered
with V8 and V6 engines. The 2011 M models will be designated the Infiniti M56
and Infiniti M37 respectively, reflecting their more powerful, larger
displacement engines. The M56 V8 is expected to offer more than 400
The 2011 Infiniti M also features a completely redesigned body, with
authentic sports sedan proportions and evocative new styling with a low front
end and deeply sculpted fenders inspired by the Infiniti Essence concept car.
The new M interior promises to be pure Infiniti, highlighted by the use of
innovative materials, an advanced climate control system, superior audio and
an enhanced quality feel. Despite improved performance from the new engine
lineup, fuel consumption will be reduced.
In addition, the 2011 M will continue Infiniti's technology innovation
leadership with a blind spot intervention system. This industry-first system
is designed to help alert the driver if another vehicle is detected in an
adjacent lane during an intended lane change, and then help assist the driver
in returning the vehicle toward the center of the original lane of travel.
The 2011 Infiniti M, which is scheduled to go on sale across the world
starting from spring 2010, was revealed through a unique "video mapping"
process - in which a "virtual M" was created on a 3D form. It is the world's
first "virtual only" (no physical vehicle) automotive application of this
cutting-edge technology. The 2011 Infiniti M will make its official public
debut later this year.
Infiniti offers a full-line of luxury performance automobiles designed to
inspire at every turn, including the G sports coupe and sedan, M luxury
performance sedan, EX personal luxury crossover, FX premium crossover SUV and
the QX full-size luxury SUV. More information about Infiniti and the Total
