From the moment you slide behind the wheel of the Infiniti M56, you are in the lap of luxury (as well you should be when you're looking at an as-tested price of $68,000). Every piece of the interior is thoughtfully designed and well executed, e.g. the sweep of metal that surrounds the interior door handle (which itself mimics the swoosh of ink in the Japanese-style car rendering in current Infiniti commercials). The interior is also very user-friendly; I always thought that Infiniti's navigation/stereo interface was easy to use, but the new system in the M56 is actually an improvement. The 420-hp V-8 has power to spare. With the V-6 now producing a hefty 330 hp, it's clear that, no matter which engine you opt for, you won't be behind at the starting line.
