All-New 2011 Infiniti M Makes World Debut - Set for Early Spring Rollout at
Infiniti Dealers Nationwide

- Infiniti's Next Generation Halo Sedan Features Magnetic Styling, Advanced Blind Spot Intervention(TM) System and Choice of Powerful V8 or V6 Engines -

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 1 /CNW/ - Infiniti today unveiled the all-new 2011 Infiniti M sedan at a media event in Beverly Hills, Calif. 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-litre VVEL Direct Injection Gasoline(TM) V8 and the Infiniti M37 with a 330-horsepower 3.7-litre VVEL V6. Both engines are designed to offer more power and increased fuel efficiency versus the previous generation M's V8 and V6 engine offerings. 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 2011 Infiniti M's completely redesigned body offers authentic sports sedan proportions and evocative new styling with a low front end and deeply sculpted fenders. Inside, the new M's interior is pure Infiniti, combining vibrant, Japanese-influenced design, luxury materials and amenities and premium entertainment systems with driver-oriented sports seating and controls.

The new Infiniti M continues its predecessor's tradition of offering an array of advanced technology systems, including 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.

"The 2011 Infiniti M embodies all of our best thinking, design and quality to date," said Wendy Durward, Director of Infiniti Canada. "It's a truly inspired design offering invigorating performance, luxurious comfort and the highest levels of craftsmanship and style ever offered in an Infiniti."

Other available 2011 Infiniti M features include a Bose(R) 2-channel 10-speaker premium audio system or Bose(R) Studio Surround(R) 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.

Also making its debut today was the revised 2010 Infiniti G37 lineup, which goes on sale in early 2010 at Infiniti retailers nationwide. The G Sedan features a new front exterior design, refined interior treatment and enhanced technology, including an advanced Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System. The Infiniti G37 Coupe and G37 Convertible also receive interior and technology refinements for the 2010 model year.
