"If you are really wanting something a little different from the norm this M35H will provide that for you. This is a wolf in sheeps clothing. It looks like and is a big comfortable saloon car but underneath there is a 3.5 litre V6 with electric motors attached pushing out a combined 369bhp so its certainly no slouch. Its plush leather seats will relax you for general day to day driving. It comes well specced with 18" alloy wheels, Sat Nav, Bluetooth and cruise control all standard. This car needs to be seen and driven."

Ten Second Review
The Infiniti M35h hybrid incorporates some intriguing technology and represents a tempting option for city dwelling executives, but it doesn't offer enough to tempt the vast majority of us from our diesel cars. It's well equipped and decently finished but space inside is a little disappointing. Interesting, different and worthy enough, the M35h is clearly targeted across the pond.
Despite its name, the Infiniti marque hasn't been around for too long in the UK and it has yet to significantly dent the consciousness of executive class buyers. Happy with their BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, Jaguar XF or Mercedes E Class models, this group of customers has, to date, been targeted by only one hybrid model, the slow selling Lexus GS450h. The modest take up of hybrids has, to a large extent, been attributed to the sheer excellence of the diesel cars in this class and if the Infiniti M35h hybrid is to elbow some of these vehicles aside, it needs to be very special indeed. Unlike Lexus, which seems either unable or unwilling to develop a good executive class diesel engine, Infiniti has one on its books already in the shape of the 236bhp 3.0-litre diesel in the M30d variant, so the hybrid model feels as if it has been developed from choice rather than necessity. In order to make any headway, it first needs to establish a case for itself over its oil-burning sibling.
We've come to expect some sort of technological headliner from most Japanese hybrid cars and the Infiniti M35h is no different. Its most fascinating feature is the Approaching Vehicle Sound for Pedestrians (VSP) which utilises a range of distinctive sounds to help ensure the safety of other road users. VSP is computer controlled and links an in-car sound synthesiser with a speaker built in to the front bumper. It automatically works from start-up to 20mph, cutting back in at 17mph as the vehicle slows. It sounds somewhat like a quieter version of a jet taxiing and gets your attention without sounding harsh or intrusive. Aside from that, the M35h gets a very punchy 303bhp 3.5-litre petrol V6 augmented by a 67bhp electric motor, the M35h which means a very puncy 5.6 second sprint to 60mph. The transmission is an automatic with internal clutch pack and means that there's not the CVT gearbox whine that often accompanies hybrid cars. The extra 120kg of weight added by the hybrid system means that you shouldn't expect the M35h to feel as wieldy through corners as a conventional petrol-powered M37. It's possible to drive at up to 60mph on electric power alone, but you'll need to have the tactile finesse of a bomb disposal expert with the throttle. Give it any more than about a quarter of the pedal's travel and the petrol engine thrums smoothly into life.
Design and Build
The design of the Infiniti M35h appears to draw upon a number of influences. There's something rather Maserati GranTurismo about the front wheel arches and undeniably overtones of Jaguar XF around the front grille and headlamps. The rear end is less distinguished, tapering to a rather generic blend of Japanese and American design cues. The net result is a car that doesn't quite hang together a cohesive package, lacking the dynamic tension of a modern European design. That said, it is quite distinctive. Things get better when you drop inside the cabin. Materials quality is extremely good and the fascia design mirrors the organic sweep of the exterior lines but to better effect. There's standard leather trim with a mix of aluminium and piano black detailing. The Infiniti trademark analogue clock sits in the centre of the dash while a large display screen marshals the various ancillary functions. In terms of fit and finish, the M35h isn't quite on a par with Audi but easily stands comparison with BMW and Mercedes. Space in the front is good, despite the broad centre console, but headroom is a little pinched in the rear. The 450-litre boot is also a fair bit smaller than the 520 and 540 litres of space that you get in the BMW 5-series and Mercedes E-class respectively. Moreover, the rear seat doesn't split or fold which also limits versatility.
Market and Model
For the driver, there's an abundance of toys to play with. The list includes climate controlled seats, bi-Xenon adaptive headlights and a range of Bose stereo options. The upmarket sound system has Active Noise Control which detects unwanted low frequency noise in the cabin and plays sound waves of the opposite phase to cancel them out. There's also a Forest Air climate control system which gives an extremely high level of control over temperature, humidity and pollution levels. Safety equipment provision is equally comprehensive. As well as the full complement of crumple zones and airbags, there's a raft of electronic aids including Intelligent Cruise Control and a Forward Collision Warning system.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
