mid-size luxury - sedan
Since the release of the M45’s new design it has posed a problem amongst luxury sedan customers, with it’s far out design and huge headlights, Infiniti thought it was time for a change. With the luxury sedan market becoming so competitive lately, it was best that Infiniti give the M45 a more sport sedan appeal. Up front the new M45 boasts one aggressively styled look that gives the M45 that “Your Next” look to the front end. On the bottom Infiniti has added in a split front air duct that features a thin piece of metal, which holds the fog lamps in place. This piece of metal seems to disappear in the dark, adding in the illusion that the fog lamps are floating. Up from the bumper sits the front grille that has been added nicely to the front end but does give that closed in feeling. The grille lines seem to close in on each other making the chrome stand out more, it really would have been better if there were bigger holes on the grille to give it a more alluring look. Next to the grille sits the very aggressive looking front lights that fit perfectly with the car. The only downside to the headlamps is that they create an odd looking point at the rear which takes away from some of the aggression of the headlamps.
Infiniti has added some beautifully designed rims, which fit perfectly with the sport appeal of the car. The big 5-point rims also add in that extra bit of aggression to the design of the M45. Along the side of the car it appears that Infiniti added some design elements from the G35 model. Borrowing the allure of the tapered in side windows and flat body line the M45 really brings the G35 elements out on its design. Although borrowing design elements from the G35 model this M45 is still a car of its own, utilizing other design elements to create its own image.
Sloping down from the roof, the rear window seems to look smaller than it really is but all that is due to the large rear of the M45. The rear features nicely designed taillights that wrap themselves around the car and seem to hold onto the side of the trunk lid. The strong hold of the rear taillights gives the illusion that the trunk lid lines are missing when in a dark place. The single circle used for the backup light really gives that evil eye look to the rear of the M45. With the added aggression of the backup light the rear of the M45 is just as aggressive as the front end. The only downside to the rear lights is that they should have followed the trunk line. Not having the rear lights follow the trunk line make it a really noticeable design feature on the rear that really is not a feature you want to be noticed.
Along the bottom this M445 features a beautiful notch that creates that added sport appeal up held by the twin dual tailpipes. All around the new M45 is sure to be a winner in the sport sedan market, giving BMW and Audi a run for there money, and brining Infiniti into the true sport sedan market.
