The Infiniti EX35: An Oft Overlooked SUV Companion

Follow Jim

(Starting at $33,800)

The Infiniti feels like less of an SUV and more like a European hatchback that is just a few inches higher off of the ground. Oh, and did I mention this thing hauls booty? Not only can you load your stuff in the boot (as the English call the trunk) but this SUV is actually really fun to drive. Why? Because it drives like a car! Did you really need to cavort across the Amazonian Rainforest this summer? Havent you heard of Vegas, baby?

With plush leather and one of the most luxurious feeling interiors in any Infiniti, the EX35 is the perfect road trip car. There is plenty of space in the backseat for two to stretch out but in this fact you begin to notice the Achilles heel of the EX35.

The EX35 is let down by one fact and one fact alone. It really lags behind competitors when it comes to cargo space. It barely betters the cargo capacity of the G37 sedan and in that fact it makes buying this SUV sort of pointless. Why not just get the sedan or coupe if there is absolutely no cargo benefit for this model? You cant even fit a medium sized dog in there without them screaming, "claustrophobia!"

However, all is not lost. The Infiniti has a much better ride than big brother FX35 so if you definitely want an Infiniti SUV this is the best choice. It also manages the unique trick of not looking like an angry guppy in a huge Chinese Restaurant aquarium (just look at the front grille of the FX-it looks like a fish who has been made angry).
