2008 Infiniti EX | new car review

Posted on Jun 19, 2009 by

Infiniti’s coupe-inspired EX35 crossover made its Middle East debut at the Dubai Motor Show last year and is now available in the region’s
showrooms.

Expected to make a telling impact in the fast-growing small crossover segment, the EX35 echoes the styling of the FX, albeit in a scaled down version. The EX35’s long hood, short front and rear overhangs, the pushed back cabin and sloping coupe-like roof arching over the C-pillar all combine to portray speed, grace and flair.

Its inside is emphasized by luxury and technology. Topping the impressive list of technology systems is the world production car debut of Infiniti’s advanced around view monitor (AVM) system. The EX35 is the first Infiniti vehicle to get this technology which will be adopted on other models later on. This technology uses four small cameras to give the driver a “top-down view” of the outside of the vehicle while parking.

Its driver-focused cabin layout features easy-to-read high-contrast gauges with white-and-violet illumination and Infiniti-signature analog clock.
The EX35 instrument panel also features a seven-inch colour display with Infiniti controller for the trip computer and additional vehicle
information, including the Infiniti DVD navigation system. Other technologies available include Bluetooth hands-free phone system,
standard Infiniti intelligent key with push button ignition, and custom-designed Bose audio with MP3. Seats are leather.

The 35 is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 314 horsepower and 362 Nm of torque. Power is shifted via an electronically controlled five-speed automatic transmission with manual shift.

Safety features include the Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual stage supplemental front air bags with seatbelt and occupant classification sensors, driver and front passenger side-impact supplemental air bags, roof-mounted curtain side-impact and rollover supplemental air bags for front and rear seat outboard occupant head protection.
