2011 Infiniti M56: Rev Matching Video

November 09, 2011

Several of our long-term cars have automatic transmissions with sporting intentions. Among those is the M56. Also among them is Acura TSX. I addressed my feelings about the Acura's performance issues a few weeeks ago.

Today I'll show you why I like the M56's gearbox.

The M56, which lacks steering-wheel-mounted paddles, still has awesome rev matching. As evidence, watch how smooth it is while dropping four gears at freeway speed and then accelerating. There's never a lurch as every shift is met with the exact engine speed necessary to match the vehicle speed. Even better, it sounds good when it revs.
