Blending the utility of a sedan utility with the performance of a sports car, the Infiniti M56 will satisfy driving enthusiasts and their families.


Like the German sports sedans it emulates, the M56 is a luxury sedan with sports car performance. This comes courtesy of an aluminum-alloy 5.6-liter V8 that puts out 420 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. Paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission, the big sedan takes fewer than five seconds to make the 0 to 60 dash.

With a fully independent suspension, the M56 is surprisingly agile, though this comes at the cost of a fairly stiff ride. Fuel economy isn't bad, considering the car's large-displacement engine: 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

The M56 seats five passengers and offers 14.9 cubic-feet of cargo space in the trunk. As is common in the class, leather-covered surfaces fill the cabin, along with wood trim and tasteful chrome accents. For 2013, Infiniti has made auto-dimming outside mirrors and a power trunk lid standard across the M range.

Advanced features like Bose audio and navigation systems are standard, along with a rearview monitor and rear sonar system to make parking a cinch. Furthermore, the navigation system is capable of relaying real-time weather information and three-day forecasts.
