This four door saloon has reached the shores of UK. It is powered by a 3.7 litre petrol V6 that was taken from Nissan 370/Z. The figures are not surprising as you can expect from the engine borrowed from other models compared to something that is produced solely for the Infiniti brand. Although this is the case, you can still get 62mph in less than 7 seconds. Its speed can hit about 155 mph which is perfectly reasonable for cars that fall under this category. You can hear gruff from its engine but it has a strong torque to get the car started. The seven speed transmission from the gear box is pretty decent. Driving the Infiniti M30d GT is a bit bumpy. This is mainly due to the 20 inch wheels that are optional. The handling of the car is alright and there is a rear steer system that helps the car on the corners.
The engine is refined considering that it runs with diesel. However its performance affects the consumption and emission of the car. The grips are a little bit low and the traction control is light. The question is; should you purchase an Infiniti M30d GT? Although it is different from other cars coming from the European competition, it is well equipped and it will give you a refined driving experience. The only thing that disappoints is the fuel efficiency of the car. The interiors are quite questionable in terms of styling. The Infiniti M30d GT has a distinctive dashboard and console. The design is shared by other Infiniti models that focus on quality leather and plastic. The seats are very comfortable and the steering column can be adjusted without a problem. In fact you can safely say that the driving is very comfortable. For a car that costs more than £40,000, everything is included in this premium vehicle. It has standard equipment like a HD navigation system and a premium sound system with speakers. There are bi xenon headlights, a rear view camera system and a temperature controlled steering wheel.
Also there are drawbacks of the car. Considering the size, the interior has an average legroom. Additionally, the rear seats are also not foldable. Infiniti also justifies the price by adding a Distance Control Assistance and the Lane Departure Prevention. This is something that can help in modern driving. There is also the Forest AirTM system and the Dynamic Safety Shield. This is something that you don’t really need especially if you are a safe driver. These features are great justifications for the price tag that they put on the car. Among the competitors of Infiniti M30d GT are: the Mercedes E350CDi, the BMW 530d and the Jaguar XF3.0D. The vehicle is perfect for anyone who has the will to drive.
