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.
