http://drivencarreviews.com/ Infiniti could have copied BMW or Mercedes like so many have before, but they've clearly taken their own road with the M37 S. It delivers the stuff needed to play in this market, the only thing missing are enlightened buyers. Tom Voelk follows a BMW 7 Series in downtown traffic without touching the brake pedal to see how well Distance Control Assist works.

2011 Infiniti M56x review and start up - A quick look at the 2011 M56x
This is Joe Tunney from Infiniti of Kirkland spending a few minutes going over the features and options of the cars we carry at our dealership. The 2011 Infiniti M56 is a midsize luxury sedan available in a lone trim level, though there is an M37 discussed in a separate review that is essentially the same car but with a smaller engine and less standard equipment. The M56 comes standard with 18-inch wheels, automatic bi-xenon headlights, foglights, power-folding heated mirrors, automatic wipers, a sunroof, keyless ignition/entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated eight-way power front seats, driver memory functions, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, a heated steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Also standard are a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a navigation system - includes voice control, real-time traffic and real-time weather - and a 10-speaker Bose stereo with a CD/DVD player, auxiliary audio/visual jack, streaming Bluetooth audio, iPod interface, satellite radio and digital music storage. The Deluxe Touring package adds a power rear sunshade, an in-car air purifier, upgraded leather upholstery and interior trim and a 16-speaker Bose surround-sound stereo. The Sport package (not available with all-wheel drive or the Deluxe Touring package) adds 20-inch wheels, summer tires, sport-tuned suspension and brakes, four-wheel active steering, sport seats and steering wheel, and unique exterior styling elements. The Sport Touring package adds the surround-sound stereo, air purifier and power sunshade to the Sport package. The Technology package includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and prevention system, blind-spot warning system, forward collision warning system, adaptive headlights and the "eco pedal" that provides the driver feedback to encourage fuel-efficient driving. Powertrains and Performance The 2011 Infiniti M56 is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 that produces 420 hp and 417 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but the M56x features all-wheel drive. A seven-speed automatic transmission is standard and includes manual override shift paddles and four different shift modes (Standard, Sport, Snow or Eco). In performance testing, the M56 goes from zero to 60 mph in a rapid 5 seconds. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 16 mpg city/25 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined with rear-wheel drive, while the M56x returns 16/23/18. Safety The M56 comes standard with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and active head restraints. Included in the Technology package are a lane departure warning and prevention system, blind-spot warning system and a forward collision warning system with intelligent brake assist. In Edmunds brake testing, an M56 Sport came to a stop from 60 mph in a very short 113 feet. The non-Sport model took only a few feet more. In the government's new, more strenuous crash testing for 2011, the M56 earned an overall rating of four stars out of a possible five, with five stars for overall frontal crash protection and five stars for overall side crash protection.
