First Drive: 2011 Infiniti M

The strategic alliance between Renault/Nissan and Daimler AG will allow the two automakers to cooperate on new tech and product-sharing that will benefit all who are involved. Following the announcement of their partnership, we heard many reports that Infiniti’s G lineup will get Mercedes-Benz”s inline 4-cylinder engines to improve fuel-economy figures.

Latest rumors from Japan say that the replacement for the Infiniti M sedan and the G coupe will see a common platform architecture with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. We also hear that Mercedes-Benz will be providing Infiniti with diesel engines.

Keep in mind, Mercedes-Benz and Infiniti have not confirmed anything as of yet.
