Infiniti's EX35 looks like a smaller version of the FX35. The EX35 uses the same styling and engine as the FX35 has, and it has a similar seating arrangement; however, the EX35 a more compact vehicle.

Infiniti has established its design language well, extending it to the G and M sedans as well as the FX and EX crossovers. All of these models exhibit prominently curved fenders and a bubble-like roofline.

A 3.5-liter V-6 engine, producing 297 horsepower, powers the EX35. This is the same engine the company uses in many Infiniti and Nissan vehicles.

The cabin can handle five occupants, with room left over for luggage. The interior is not as large as with the FX35 is, so bringing four people on a road trip would be a stretch. For two people, it would be very comfortable ride.

The EX35 is available in rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive formats. We found that all-wheel-drive system gave the EX35 an edge in handling.

The EX35's cargo area is not as big as that in the FX35, but it is a reasonable size.

Infiniti equips the EX35 with a five-speed-automatic transmission, a little primitive in an era when six-speed transmissions are coming in to vogue. The lack of the a sixth gear means the engine has to run faster at freeway speeds.

We particularly like the Infiniti interface, which consists of a hardware knob, buttons, and a touch screen. It makes it easy to select items from the various screens.
