2011 Infiniti M56: Really Like The Interior Design
April 08, 2011
Besides the V8, my favorite thing about our M56 is its interior. The color scheme is a bit too dark for my tastes (you can get others, obviously), but otherwise it's just really well done. In particular, I like the sweeping look of the dash and the ergonomics.
For the latter, I've just noticed that most of the controls fall readily to hand and are easy to use. I particularly like how the center stack is close to the driver; I never feel like I have to stretch for any of the buttons. In that sense, it's like driving a smaller car, like a Miata. I'm also keen on the tactile feeling from the nicely contoured door releases and sensible steering wheel controls.
Other than perhaps display screen graphics, I prefer our M56 to our BMW 528i in regards to interior design.
