The engine revs a bit more freely but doesn't feel noticeably stronger than last year's hp M35, and dollar for dollar, it still provides a richer powerband than competitors like the BMW i or Audi A6 3.

    This year's rear-wheel-drive M35 gets Infiniti's new seven-speed automatic; it moves gas mileage up a few ticks versus last year's version, which had a five-speed automatic. Other models, including the M35x I tested, carry over the five-speed.

    Though it's a gear or two short of the competition, that transmission remains one of my favorites. It holds lower gears tenaciously at lower speeds, refusing the mileage bait of an early upshift while you're still on the gas. Shifts are heard in engine pitch but rarely felt, and highway kickdown is quick and free of gear-hunting.

    Around town, lower gears arrive almost instinctively — accelerating out of a corner or pulling around a semi, for instance, you're rarely caught flat-footed in a higher gear. Jaguar's ZF automatic comes to mind in the same league, and I hope Infiniti preserved this sort of performance in the M35's seven-speed. Every M this year gets a Drive Sport mode that holds lower gears longer for more responsiveness, but it's hardly necessary. If the M35 is confident, the M45 is authoritative.

    Don't let the mere hp difference fool you — with an extra liter of displacement , the M45's V-8 boasts a torque peak that's rpm lower, with 74 more pounds-feet of twist. It trades the M35's finesse for brute hang-the-tail-out power at pretty much any speed. In my brief time with the M45, years ago, I found the acceleration unmanageable at times.

    It would come in spurts, particularly through second and third gear, giving the car a restless feeling on city streets. If your commute involves roads that are open enough for the M45 to stretch its legs, though, it could be serious fun. The M35x and M45x utilize an all-wheel-drive system that transfers power forward or backward electronically.

My test car last year had the Sport package — which augments the four-wheel-independent suspension with sportier tuning, bigger wheels and high-performance summer tires — but ride quality was livable, and even more so in the M35x I drove this year, which had smaller wheels and regular suspension tuning.

    Highway road noise remains tolerable up to 75 mph — above that, wind and road noise quickly encroach — and the car's chassis dispatches bumps with modest noise and few reverberations. If you live near curvy roads, you'd do well to drive them in the M. The steering wheel moves with a lighter touch than in Infiniti's smaller G37, and though it doesn't feel as precise in prolonged bends — highway cloverleafs, curvy backroads — the turn-in precision for lane changes and most city driving is in the same league.

    Body roll remains well in check, and at its limits the M displays good grip and even better balance. The Sport package adds Infiniti's Rear Active Steer, which power-adjusts the suspension hardware to angle the rear wheels slightly while the car is turning. The purported result is swifter handling. Last year's M35 came equipped with the feature, but I couldn't tell when the system was operating, or what benefits it added.
