Prices, specs and full details announced for Infiniti M30d

Infiniti has announced full details, specs and prices for the M30d, its first big diesel executive car.

It features an engine that's been developed specifically for Europe - a 3.0-litre V6 piezo-injection diesel with 550 Nm of torque and CO2 emissions of 199 g/km. The M30d is available in five grades and costs from £36,750. 

The M30d in Premium form, expected to be the most popular, is similarly unbeatable in its provision of standard safety technologies. They include the world-first application of Blind Spot Intervention, a system which registers nearby vehicles and helps ensure the Infiniti cannot stray into their path.

The M30d accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h. Fuel consumption on the combined cycle is 37.7mpg while at the official extra-urban consumption the 80-litre tank provides a potential cruising range of more than 80 miles. CO2 emissions are 199 g/km.

M30d - from £36,750

The entry model is equipped as standard with features that include: 7-speed automatic transmission, bi-Xenon lights, 10-way power front seats, reversing camera, parking sensors front and rear, heated steering wheel, hard disk drive (HDD) sound system and Infiniti's new Drive Mode Selector which tailors key driving parameters to Sport, Normal, Snow and Eco settings.

M30d GT - from £39,250

The GT builds on the M30d spec with an emphasis on even more luxury. Standard features include: semi-aniline leather, heated and ventilated front seats, Active Front Light system (AFS) and White Ash wood trim with silver powder finish.

M30d S - from £41,250

The more sporting choice, the S introduces 4-Wheel Active Steering (4WAS), sports suspension, sports seats (also heated and ventilated), magnesium gearshift paddles and 20-inch alloy wheels inspired by those of the Essence concept car.

M30d GT Premium - from £44,600

M30d S Premium - from £46,600

Premium versions build on the respective GT or S models by adding every M Line feature available, including Blind Sport Intervention TM, Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Prevention and other technologies comprising the Dynamic Safety Shield. Also included are Forest AirTM, a 16-speaker Bose® Premium Surround sound system and Infiniti's acclaimed Connectiviti+ information and entertainment platform comprising 30GB HDD navigation.


With so many features included as standard, there are just three options available: metallic paint (£665) a temporary spare wheel (in place of repair kit, £90) and, for the GT and S, the Connectiviti+ HDD multimedia navigation system (£2350).

The M30d joins the V6 petrol M37 in an M range that expands further in 2011 with the innovative M35h. The Hybrid's arrival will complete a trio of V6-powered luxury sedans, all with strong driver focus and Infiniti's signature blend of technology and craftsmanship, to offer buyers a compelling alternative to the usual suspects of Europe's executive-car hierarchy.
