A new model for Infiniti, the sporty 2008 Infiniti EX35 enters the fast growing compact luxury SUV segment with lots of style and performance. Built on the same platform as the successful G35 sedan, the EX35 is offered in Base and Journey trim levels. Under the hood is Nissan's 3.5-liter 297 hp V-6 mated to a 5-speed automatic with manual shift control which helps achieve up to 17/24 mpg city/hwy. RWD is standard with AWD available, along with numerous luxury and technology upgrades. Leather seats and instrument panel, real wood trim, hard drive-based NAV, an "Around View Monitor" system that shows video from cameras in the mirrors, grille, and rear are just a few. With its excellent handling, strong powertrain, and endless luxury features combined with the utility of a compact SUV, the EX35 compares well with rivals BMW X3 and Acura RDX.Read more Read less
The Infiniti EX35 is a new-for-2008 crossover SUV based on the 2007 EX Concept first seen at the New York Auto Show. The EX35 calls to mind the sporty, popular, G35 coupe and sedan, and its branch in the Infiniti SUV family tree sits below the FX35 and FX45 models. It is designed to be far more "sport" than "utility." The EX35 shares its capable front-midship (FM) chassis and excellent, free-revving, 297-horsepower 3.5L V6 with several other Infiniti models (G35, M35, FX35), and that power is put to the wheels through an advanced five-speed automatic. The EX35 comes in two trim levels--base and Journey--and with rear-wheel or intelligent all-wheel drive. The 2008 Infiniti EX35 is available in eight colors: Moonlight White, Liquid Platinum, Scarlet Silver, Platinum Graphite, Blue Slate, Tidewater, Dark Currant, and Black Obsidian. Pricing starts at just over $31,000.
Sleek, sexy design with pleasing styling inside as well; luxurious cabin; proven front-midship chassis; excellent engine and drivetrain; competitive pricing.
Infiniti was one of the first car companies to emphasize the "sport" in sport utility vehicle, and the 2008 EX35 furthers that philosophy. By blending world-class performance, advanced technology, and a luxurious, user-friendly interior, the EX35 will leave drivers wanting for nothing. The fourth-generation 3.5L V6 that powers the EX35 has been one of Ward's 10 Best Engines for more than a decade, and the car wears the same familiar, attractive face that many of its Infiniti siblings wear. For 2008, the Infiniti EX35 offers more power than both the Acura RDX and Lexus RX 350, and is priced less as well.
