Infiniti M

Infiniti announced that the 2013 Infiniti M sedan has been awarded a 5-Star overall safety rating by the USA’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) under the agency’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).

The 5-Star Safety Ratings System is designed to provide consumers with information about the crash protection and rollover safety of new vehicles. Five stars is the highest possible rating. NHTSA is the only organisation that rates rollover resistance.

“Infiniti’s Inspired Performance encompasses the total design of our vehicles, including our goal to provide a secure, confidence-inspiring environment for driver and passengers. The NHTSA 5-Star NCAP rating is an important third-party validation of these efforts,” said Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore. “We’re also proud of Infiniti’s ongoing industry leadership in advanced safety technologies such as Blind Spot Intervention, Lane Departure Prevention, Forward Collision Warning and the new Backup Collision Intervention that was just introduced on the all-new Infiniti JX luxury crossover.”

All 2013 Infiniti M models come equipped with standard Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and occupant classification sensor, standard front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags, and standard roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection.

The Infiniti M also includes standard 3-point seat belts with Automatic Locking Retractor and Emergency Locking Retractor (driver’s seat only), front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters, front seat Active Head Restraints with 4-way manual adjustments, along with Zone Body construction with front and rear crumple zones and LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tether for Children).

Infiniti commenced official Australian sales at the start of this month.
