2012 Infiniti M35h Review
2012 Infiniti M35h Review

There is no doubt hybrid models have come a long way since their first introduction to the automotive. They have become faster, more fuel efficient, and given powertrains that make them almost inseparable from their conventional cousins. This is especially true of the 2012 Infiniti M35h. So much like the M series models, the M35h features a well made and attractive body style with plenty of character. This car is sure to make an impression anywhere it goes. The high quality materials and design used in the cabin is worth taking a look at as well.

In test drives, the hybrid version of the M keeps up just fine with the rest of the crowd with its 3.5-liter V-6 engine, electric motor, and seven-speed transmission. This is a good option for anyone looking for a luxury hybrid sedan with plenty of standard and available features.

New For 2012

For the 2012 model year the only important change to the Infiniti M series is the addition of the hybrid model.

Exterior

The 2012 Infiniti M35h is the company’s addition to the hybrid world. This car is considered to be a combination of sport sedan and luxury car. The M35h version rides around on 18 inch alloy wheels and has the same characteristics of the traditional versions of the M Series. The front end and grille are wide and imposing looking with a rectangular grille and the Infiniti emblem placed in the center of the grille. The headlights are uniquely designed and flank the grille high on the hood. The overall body design of this car features a balance of curves, rounded edges, and modern lines. The front fenders are stylish with well defined wheel wells. The doors and sides of the M35h feature a curved top near the windows that taper down to the distinctive lines along the bottom. The hood itself is unforgettable with details in the metal work. The roof sits high but slopes downward above the rear of the cabin for a decidedly sporty look.

Interior & Cargo

Even with the 2012 Infiniti M35h exterior design, the cabin for this hybrid is quite roomy and is loaded with a variety of high quality materials. Passengers in the front and back seat are sure to appreciate the generous amount of head and leg room. Additionally, the seats are very comfortable and supportive. With the Deluxe Touring package the M35h amps up the luxury with quilted leather seating complete with contrasting piping and wood trim. These extra touches easily take the M35h to the level of many of the European luxury sedans.

Passenger space certainly isn’t a problem in the cabin. Cargo space isn’t as spacious as most other cars of this class, but it is essential to take into account the space needed for the model’s electric engine. Still, the 2012 M35h manages to squeak out 11.3 cubic feet of space when the rear seats are in an upright position.

The new hybrid from Infiniti isn’t without its technology either. This car is equipped with navigation and audio systems with easy to use interfaces. Additionally, the M35h is also available with iPod input, satellite radio, and Bluetooth connectivity to complete the entertainment and information options.

Safety

In addition to good looks inside and out, as well as that very nice improved fuel economy, the 2012 Infiniti M35h has plenty going for it in the way of standard safety features as well. This model is equipped active front head restraints, stability and traction control, and a full assortment of airbags. Interested consumers will find airbags in the front side and side curtain positions. Anti-lock brakes are also standard safety equipment on this hybrid. Those who chose to add the Technology package have a lot to look forward to. This package includes intelligent brake assist with a collision warning system and a blind spot warning system as well.

Everyone wonders if a hybrid sedan can keep up with the big boys. In the case of the M35h the answer is yes. This model offers an amazing capacity for taking turns and curves in the road like a much smaller car. The ride is also undeniably comfortable. While the available Sport package has some benefits, the tighter suspension and larger wheels are likely to give passengers a ride that is too firm for most people’s liking.

Driving Experience

The 2012 Infiniti M35h is equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine paired with the necessary electric motor. The engines make good use of the standard seven-speed automatic transmission. The two engines together work to give the M35h an impressive 360 hp. This model is standard with rear-wheel drive. Of course, the estimated fuel economy for this vehicle is outstanding, even with the large V-6 engine. Consumers can expect this model to get about 27/32 mpg city/highway.

2012 Infiniti M35h Hybrid Front Three Quarters Static Driver
2012 Infiniti M35h
If there was ever a time to truly test the M35h's ability to sip fuel and run on electricity alone, this night certainly wasn't it. Temperatures plummeted, gale-force winds (30-40 mph) rocked southern Michigan, and for reasons completely unrelated to weather, my wife and I were running late for a hockey game located 53 miles away by freeway. Instead, this scenario allowed me to experience the other facet of the M35h's personality: power. This car moves at a fairly good clip when the drive selector is placed on "normal," but it's surprisingly potent once moved to "sport." That may not be too surprising when you view the net horsepower figure (360 hp), but you can't help be a bit startled when the car quickly jumps off the line. In this mode, the M35h feels more like the muscular M56 than a fuel-stingy, tree-hugging hybrid. Trying to keep the car in EV mode, even in "Eco" mode, can grow a bit tiring - no matter how finessed your right foot may be, any attempt to slowly increase your speed usually results in the reawakening of the V-6. I love this latest iteration of M; the curvaceous exterior, incredibly posh interior, and refined road manners are addicting, regardless of the powertrain selected. The hybrid certainly is an interesting choice: while more expensive than a six-cylinder M37 ($53,700 vs $47,700), it is considerably more powerful, and both less expensive and more fuel-efficient than the eight-cylinder M56. Apart from 60 horsepower and the availability of all-wheel-drive, you don't lose much by choosing the M35h over the M56.

Beijing 2012: Infiniti Stretches the M35h and M25 For China
Infiniti has been selling cars in China for five years, and now the Asian country is the second-biggest sales region for Infiniti cars. To appeal to the Chinese market even more, Infiniti is launching two long wheelbase versions of the M sedan: the M25L and the M35hL hybrid. In China, many drivers seem to want long-wheelbase versions of cars. Such models offer more rear legroom and prove incredibly popular on the streets of Beijing. Nearly every non-Chinese car around can be ordered in a longer form, from the Volkswagen Passat to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- and literally everything in between. In the case of the Infiniti M, choosing the "L" treatment lengthens the car's wheelbase grows by 5.9 inches to provide more rear legroom. In the process, the shape of the C-pillar changes and becomes a bit more curved. We think the M35hL's haunches and silhouette now almost resemble those of the Porsche Panamera sedan. That might not be a good thing, as the Panamera's styling remains fairly polarizing. The Infiniti M35hL and M25L will be built in Japan and are only slated for sale in China. They go on sale in June.

Report: Infiniti M to Use Mercedes-Benz Four-Cylinders in Europe
Infiniti is looking to downsize its engines, and it looks like the first step the automaker will take is to slot a set of four-cylinders under the hood of its M sedan in Europe. But the new four-bangers won’t come from parent-company Nissan’s corporate catalogue, but from German rival Mercedes-Benz.

Guinness World Records Names 2012 Infiniti M35h World's Fastest Hybrid
Think all hybrid cars are slow and boring? Think again. Guinness World Records has certified the 2012 Infiniti M35h as the world’s fastest full-hybrid car. The car rocketed through a quarter-mile run in an average of 13.9 seconds over multiple runs. The M35h uses a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 302 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, as well as an electric motor rated for 67 hp and 199 lb-ft. Together, the motor and engine combine for a peak 360 hp. Yet even with all that performance on tap, the EPA rates the Infiniti hybrid at 27/32 mpg (city/highway). The record-setting run was driven by CAR Magazine associate editor Tim Pollard at Santa Pod Raceway in the U.K. Out of several runs, the quickest took just 13.896 seconds. Adjudicators from Guinness World Records were on hand to help verify the world record, which will be listed in the 2013 Guinness Book of Records. According to Infiniti, the quarter-mile time puts the M35h on par with the performance of a 1982 Lamborghini Countach S and 1998 BMW M3. Infiniti also says the M35h will hit 62 mph in just 5.5 seconds -- about as quick as a 2011 BMW 335i sedan. Source: Infiniti
