For 2010, navigation is now offered as a stand alone option. All-wheel-drive models gain standard heated front seats, while all EX35's gain heated outside mirrors and auto on/off headlamps. The Around View monitoring system, once a stand along feature, has added to the Bose audio package.
For 2009, leather seating, RearView Monitor, rear HVAC vents and roof rails become part of the EX35's standard equipment list. The cloth seat option is dropped, while Distance Control Assist and Intelligent Brake Assist are added to the Technology Package.
Instead of offering just another cargo-hauling, people-moving crossover, Infiniti has blurred the lines between form and function with the EX35, creating a vehicle that for all intents and purposes has the basic utility of an SUV but takes its styling cues and driving dynamics from sportier vehicles. The 2008 EX35 is not just a plush "coupe-like" SUV, it is also a showcase of all the advanced technology Infiniti has to offer. Both the self-healing exterior paint and available Around View Monitor are exclusives for the automaker and help set the EX35 apart from competitors like the BMW X3, Acura RDX and Land Rover LR2.
