Infiniti M Interior
While the 2013 Infiniti M doesn’t have the flashiest cabin in the class, reviewers say that it’s attractively designed and built with premium materials. They note that leather and Japanese Ash wood trim give the M’s interior a luxurious feel, which is further enhanced by comfortable front seats and straightforward tech features.
- "Infiniti has given the M top-notch cabin design and high-quality materials. As with the car's exterior styling, the cabin's powerful lines call to mind the muscular curves of a bodybuilder flexing on the stage." -- Edmunds
- "Outfitted in rich, warm leather and high-quality soft-touch materials, the 2013 Infiniti M delivers an inviting in-cabin experience." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Inside are all the luxury materials one would expect at this price and the sport seats were comfortable on all-day drives." -- MarketWatch
- "Not a lot of bling or wow, but solidly business class, clean and arguably luxurious." -- Autoblog (2011)
The Infiniti M comes with leather upholstery and 10-way power-adjustable heated front seats, which earn positive comments from the automotive press. Additionally, most test drivers say there’s good head- and legroom up front, but one reviewer says that back-seat headroom may not be ideal for some taller passengers. Optional comfort features include climate-controlled front seats and a heated steering wheel.
- "The cabin is quite roomy, offering generous space for occupants and a relatively tall greenhouse that provides good outward visibility." -- Edmunds
- "The M's spacious greenhouse comfortably accommodates its occupants, who enjoy 10-way power-adjustable and heated front seats, leather-trimmed seating surfaces and generous rear-seat legroom." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "… there was plenty of room up front for a 6-foot tall driver and passenger. To the rear, headroom can be a bit tight for two tall riders but leg and foot room are fine as long as an NBA player is not driving." -- MarketWatch
- "The seats are both more supportive and more comfortable, and the rear seat is particularly plush, with a great view out." -- Automobile Magazine (2011)
The 2013 Infiniti M comes with a moonroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera and a six-speaker stereo with Bluetooth, satellite radio and a USB port. A number of option packages are available, which add features like a Bose stereo, rear parking sensors, navigation, a power rear sunshade and adaptive cruise control, as well as blind spot monitoring, forward collision and lane departure warning systems.
Reviewers say that the M stands out from the class with its user-friendly tech features. They write that it’s easy to adjust audio, climate and navigation settings, and that the M offers separate buttons to control most vehicle functions. However, a few critics point out that not all of the M’s switchgear is placed within easy reach.
- "As for technology, it's hard to think of a rival that betters the M for all the available entertainment, comfort and safety technologies that can be had once you check all the options boxes. In particular, Infiniti's navigation and audio interfaces are some of the most user-friendly in the business." -- Edmunds
- "The only sour note is the all-in-one control knob's inconvenient placement high on the center stack where you can't rest your arm while operating it." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Ventilation and audio systems were fairly easy to set. …" -- MarketWatch
- "Unlike many cars, the navigation controls are largely separate and don't complicate the audio and climate functions. For the most part, they're handy and simple to use. However, some buttons controlling secondary functions aren't optimally placed." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
With 14.9 cubic feet of trunk space, the Infiniti M has exactly 1 cubic foot less than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan. One reviewer notes that the M’s trunk is a bit shallow toward the front, and that it lacks split-folding rear seats to increase cargo space. However, another critic says that the M offers decent small-item storage and a spacious trunk.
- "The trunk lid opens wide on strut-type hinges. The trunk is wide at the back but quite narrow at the front and not particularly deep. The rear seat backs don't fold, though a small pass through can accommodate skis." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
- "When it comes to storage, the M37x offers plenty of options. The center console is pragmatically tiered to keep snacks, lip gloss and diapers organized; the trunk pass-through is great for skis and other long, thin gear; and the trunk offered lots of storage space for strollers, groceries or your third child (kidding)." -- Mother Proof (2011)
