The Infiniti EX35 is billed as a personal luxury crossover. What you get is a small, tight package of sporty handling and solid performance, what you'd expect from an Infiniti, but also tight dimensions on the inside, in form of mediocre rear leg room, and smallish cargo area. For light travelers, singles and couples mostly, it's acceptable, as they are the target customers. The EX35 is quick, with it's 297hp 3.5L V6 and 5-speed Automatic with Sport and Manual modes. The suspension is tuned on the firm side, to maintain those sporty characteristics. This is fine until you start hitting those badly paved or potted roads, where the EX35 becomes unsettled and jumpy. It's nearly 2-ton weight doesn't help much either. Beyond that, you're treated to one of the nicer interiors available in this segment. A beautifully-designed center stack waterfalls down between the comfortable and nicely-tailored leather seats (with seat heat). The rear seats fold down manually or using the power fold-down button from the cargo area, and can be raised either manually, or again through a power return-to-upright buttons in the cargo area or the center console, behind the shifter next to the seat heat buttons.
This car is ideal for those who prefer smaller, sporty cars, or sports sedans, and want a little versatility without stepping up to an SUV or an SUV crossover. Those who are looking for a comfortable highway cruiser that absorbs the bumps better look elsewhere. Comfort seems to improve with the standard 17" wheels, but I've only tried the 18"s, which are part of a package that also adds Bi-Xenon headlights.
I am an Infiniti person I've only owned Infinti for the past twenty years very dependable car and good on gas, I love the crossover style not too big perfect size vehicle. I'm in love with. My Infinity. I would definitely recommend all my friends and family to purchase one. You will never want to drive anything else!!!!!!
I bought this car needing to replace my work vehicle. I was specifically looking for a medium size crossover/ large hatchback. I only needed enough cargo space to accommadate 2 large suitcases and a couple boxes. This Infiniti was probably not designed for larger families.
(+): Sporty look, Very comfortable, ample power, great steering/ handling, smooth transmission, nice sound system, easy to maneuvar back seats, and ok gas mileage. I drive over 200 miles/week , (majority hwy) and can go 2 weeks before each fill-up.
(-): Requires premium fuel, but most high performance engines do. Reliability history reveals noisy fuel pump; although yet to experience. Not available in a manual xmission; although the auto shifter is one of the best I have ever driven.
Overall; if you're looking for a small, sporty crossover; this car gets a thumbs up.
