2012 Infiniti M35h Hybrid – Short Take Road Test

Blindfold us and put us behind the wheel of any car—preferably not in heavy traffic—and we would probably be able to correctly identify Infinitis with more success than any other make. From the throttle to the brakes to the steering, the major controls in vehicles from Nissan’s luxury division are remarkably consistent. Unfortunately, those controls are consistently too hair-trigger quick to achieve perfection, the throttles overly snappy, the brakes too grabby, and the steering too twitchy for the sort of relaxed driving we don’t do often but a well-balanced car should be capable of.

Regardless of manufacturer, many hybrid vehicles also enjoy a rare commonality of feel. Aside from the obvious defining characteristic—the stopping and starting of the engine—the electric power-steering systems fitted to hybrids typically deprive the driver of any communication through the wheel, and regenerative braking systems frequently turn brake pedals to nonlinear mush. In the Infiniti M35h, which pairs a 302-hp version of Infiniti’s 3.5-liter V-6 with a 67-hp electric motor—those two opposing extremes cancel each other out beautifully, lending the M35h a more refined personality than the rest of the M lineup.

Take It Easy

Even though the hybrid has the same steering ratio as do other rear-wheel-drive Ms and the electrohydraulic boost still demands a fair bit of effort, its weighting is nowhere near as aggressive, and the on-center response is dulled just the right amount from the M’s usual sneeze-into-the-median twitchiness. Infiniti fits uniquely tuned shocks and anti-roll bars to the hybrid, and the 245/50-18 Michelins have a touch more sidewall than the tires on most of the Ms we drive, giving the hybrid an ever-so-slightly calmer ride than the rest of the family.
