In a luxury segment crowded with variety, attractiveness and technology - from every corner of the world - you could be forgiven for letting the Inifiniti M45 slip by. Well, the "M", as it is now being called, has been brought in and showered with attention by a company that has virtually redesigned itself over the past few years. The result is an entirely new vehicle with the looks, attitude and wherewithal to tackle the field. Not only do the 2006 M35 and M45 have more space, grace and pace, they have been packaged to offer a clear value advantage over the competition.

What's in a name? If you're Nissan in search of an "army of one" to tackle the full-size sport-utility vehicle market, perhaps the name means more than you think. In a world where Tahoes, Sequoias and Expeditions rule the open seas, the 2004 Pathfinder Armada is a one-truck wrecking ball looking to punch a hole in a segment, all by its lonesome, fearless self. At least the name fits. Webster's Dictionary says an Armada is a "fleet of warships," or a "large force of moving things.

Nissan certainly got it right when its third-generation Altima was introduced three years ago. The updated 2005 version is quicker and has received a number of key improvements that make it an even sweeter deal. In 2002, the sedan competition was blindsided by the Altima's classy looks and potent inline four-cylinder and optional V-6 engines. It was a leading-edge family ride that left other weaker-kneed midsized four-doors in the dust, even the old Altima it replaced. In fact, even some near-luxury cars costing thousands more were plainly embarrassed by what was once an innocuous five-passenger chariot that rarely warranted a second glance.

While the restyled 2004 Sentra proves that Nissan is still connected to its compact-car roots, it also proves that an entry-level car can appeal to a broad range of buyers. Years ago, the main niche of the import brands - and cars such as the Sentra - was to provide an inexpensive and fuel-efficient alternative to the more mainstream autos on the road. But, as Toyota, Honda and Nissan began building larger and more upscale offerings, their starting-point models, while not exactly neglected, lacked a certain degree of pulse-quickening excitement.

Proof of a sports car's validity is sometimes seen when its successor is highly refined as opposed to heavily made over. For 2009, the new 370Z shows that the outgoing 350Z was on the mark right from the beginning as the updates push what was a very fulfilling package to the next level . . . and by shedding fat in the process. Yes, Nissan's latest Z-car has become a less-is-more proposition, a trend that's most welcome at a time when new-and-improved models generally tend to pack on the pounds.

It would appear that rumors about the demise of the two-door-coupe category have been greatly exaggerated, although it wasn't long ago that it seemed difficult to find a good selection of these sporty machines. Manufacturers were concentrating on high-volume, high-profit sport-utility vehicles and had little interest in slow sellers or tiny niche categories ... namely sporty two-doors. BMW proved everyone wrong with its Mini Cooper. Make it fun and give it plenty of style and people will buy it. It's a philosophy that keeps the modern-day Mustang popular and it's the same philosophy that will bring a new Camaro to the party as well as a new Dodge Challenger.

The first Nissan Pathfinder was aptly named. Rolling into dealerships in 1986, Pathfinder was then the only Nissan sport-utility vehicle sold stateside. The popularity of the breed spawned plenty of new models, and soon Pathfinder was shoulder-to-shoulder in the showroom with the Nissan Murano, Xterra and Armada. Pathfinder and Murano are midsize bookends in the Nissan lineup. The latter is a stylish crossover with a clear, on-road bias. The former is also a midsize, but one that doesn't mind getting its tires dirty.
