Infiniti is now offering its M35h – the sportiest hybrid saloon out there – in the coveted GT grade. It sits below the M35h GT Premium, making the hybrid car more affordable, as it costs £3970 less than the Premium model. With a starting price of £41,101, the M45h GT is not a cheap car, but it offers great value for money when you consider what you receive.
What you receive is a luxurious four-door Infiniti powered by one of the finest hybrid systems known to man, consisting of a V6 petrol engine and an electric motor, with a combined output of 364 PS (359bhp), 0 to 60 mph time of 5.5 seconds, average fuel consumption of 40.4 mpg with 162g/km CO2. In other words, it’s a no compromise car.
And don’t think because it costs less than the Premium model, it’s badly equipped. Actually the GT Premium is a bit too well-equipped. The M35 GT gets very advanced features such as 16-speaker Bose® surround sound, Connectiviti+, Infiniti’s navigation/entertainment system, Frost Air climate control system, in addition to regular luxury equipments like semi-aniline leather seat facings, heated and ventilated front seats, bi-Xenon headlights with Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS), alloy wheels and White Ash wood trim finished with real silver powder.
