The 2012 Infiniti EX35 dominated the automotive market for a reason. The ride may fall short in hauling large group of passengers, but revving up this ride can give utmost satisfaction for everyone who is in for a smooth, adrenaline-rich road trips.
Infiniti EX35’s limited space for cargo and passengers makes it a poor option for family use, but its sporty appeal and stylish aesthetics coupled with high class interior makes it a sound investment. Although the second row is tight, couples and small families may still see this vehicle as a good luxurious find. The vehicle is just as refined under the hood when power and handling is underscored.
Road trips would be pretty enjoyable with this nimble and agile ride. Thanks to the 3.5 liter V6 engine that produces 297 horsepower, the Infiniti EX35 became one of the most powerful cars among the pool of its equivalent SUVs in the market. The quick acceleration from the seven-speed automatic transmission became its token for positive feedback from most reviews. Although there exists a gripe on its powertrain and loud engine, it still not enough to mask the upbeat handling of this ride.
Car shopping for the 2012 Infiniti EX35 lays out four choices of trims, including the base and Journey trims – both of which have optional all-wheel drive. The 2012 model of the EX35 features standard HomeLink which can be installed and operated with compatible garage doors and home security system. Just think of coming home with the garage door automatically opening thus scratching hassles from faulty remotes.
Whichever trim one may choose, the EX35 can still have an average 17/24 mpg in the city/highway. These digits are still amiable, but competing models may have higher EPA-estimated ratings for fuel efficiency. Those who choose to invest on the 2012 Infiniti EX35 should then set a large budget for gasoline money each year.
This fact aside, reviews still contain multiple thumbs up for the handsome and sleek exterior of the EX35. Clean and sharp lines characterize the design of the car, and its streamlining is pretty impressive. Automotive journalists give a good rating for the aesthetic of the car. Yet some are still left unsatisfied with its interior.
Superb fit and finish comes with premium standard features for the Journey trim of the EX35. This would include a power tilt and telescopic steering wheel and Bluetooth. The navigation system is also competitive in that it operates with an 11-speaker Bose audio system. Even the base model features superb entertainment equipment like satellite radio and USB ports. A rear-view camera is also built with the car. Leather-appointed seats fill up the interior, but these are not enough to leave some the journalists and reviewers impressed.
The major whinge on this car is its cramped seats that cannot make anyone comfortable – even the short or average-sized passengers. There is not much headroom for tall drivers thereby compromising the rear visibility. This being said, the 2012 Infiniti EX35 may just be another SUV made for fun on the road and not really for functionality.
