Infiniti M37 and M56 2011 UAE debut at Sharjah auto show
Nissan’s UAE dealer will be launching the all-new 2011 Infiniti M37 and M56 models at a press event in Dubai on October 10, and will showcase the car to the public in their stand at the 2010 Sharjah Auto Show, starting October 14 this week. A wider Middle East press launch was already held in Lebanon, from what we heard.
The all-new 2011 Infiniti M is the much-needed midsize luxury sedan with sporting intentions that the still-small Japanese brand will put up against established German competitors, after the previous version turned out to be a dud and the G37 being a bit too small.
The M37 will have a 328 hp 3.7-litre V6 while the M56 will have a 402 hp 5.6-litre V8, both rear-wheel-drive with 7-speed automatic gearboxes.
Expect UAE pricing to start near Dhs 200,000 for an M37, going as high as Dhs 250,000 for an optioned-up M56, given that Infiniti isn’t the “value-priced” luxury marque it once was, although still cheaper and more reliable than any German brand.
Update: Base price has been announced at Dhs 185,000 for an M37.
