Last year the 2009 Infiniti EX35 started at just $33,800 and this year, the 2010 model...does too. But despite the price freeze, the 2010 EX35 adds a handful of new features, sweetening the deal for buyers in the market for a sport luxury crossover.
Updates for 2010 include a revised set of option packages and an all-new Bose and Around View Monitor Package with Infiniti's advanced climate control system and air purification. An upgraded nav package adds Bluetooth streaming audio, XM NavWeather and Zagat's Restaurant Guide for on-the-go info.
Heated outside mirrors and auto on/off headlights are standard across the range this year, with all models except the entry-level EX35 rear-wheel-drive getting heated front seats too. Journey models get standard Bluetooth hands-free calling and all 2010 EXs get an enhanced USB iPod connector port and Bose Premium Audio-equipped models also get a 2-gigabyte music hard drive when the Infiniti Hard Drive nav system isn't specced.
The prices on the more up-scale models are the same as last year as well, with the all-wheel drive version of the EX35 at $35,200, the higher-spec Journey rear-drive at $36,000 and the all-wheel-drive Journey at $37,400.
The 2010 EX35 carries forward the 297-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine, five-speed automatic transmission and sleek, sculpted exterior from the 2009 model.
