Performance

Based on Car & Driver's test of the Infiniti EX35, it outperforms its competitors. 0-60 mph time is 5.8 - 6.2 seconds. The quarter mile is 14.6 seconds at 98 miles per hour (158 km/h), and top speed (Gov. limit) is 144 mph (232 km/h). 70 mph (110 km/h) - 0 braking is a short 166 feet (51 m), shorter than the Pontiac G8 GT (a sports sedan). The Roadholding is .83g's. Lastly notes from the test say, "Acceleration runs are faster using manumatic mode, which is unusual. Excellent fade-free brakes."

Features

  • The Infiniti EX is the first production automobile to offer an Around View Monitor (AVM), which utilizes small front, side and rear-mounted cameras to give the driver a "top-down view" of the outside of the vehicle while parking - helping to reduce blind spots while parking.
  • The EX is also one of the first production automobiles to feature "Scratch Shield," a special "self-healing" clearcoat paint. The paint self-repairs fine scratches, such as fingernail scratches under door handles, restoring the EX's surface close to the original state. The process, which takes anywhere from one day to one week (depending on the surrounding temperature and the depth of the scratch), is accomplished through the use of a special highly elastic resin. This resin is combined with a conventional clearcoat to increase the paint's flexibility and strength by raising the resin density.[3]
  • The EX becomes the second Infiniti production vehicle, following the 2008 Infiniti M-series, to offer the new Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) system. This feature will utilize the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system to help assist the driver in maintaining lane position by applying gentle brake pressure on each wheel individually to generate intended movement. It should be noted that this system does not "pull" you back into your lane, but simply sounds an alert and nudges the vehicle in the correct direction when lane departure is detected. [5]
