2012 Infiniti EX35
Slotted below the sporty FX in size and price, the EX35 is built on the same basic architecture. As such, it offers a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive -- most crossovers are front- or all-wheel drive. The Infiniti's chassis makes for responsive handling; helping matters is the fact that the EX35 is not overly tall. Ride quality is also pretty good. Unlike the larger FX, here the only engine option is a V-6. That V-6 is Infiniti's 3.5-liter, which is one of the more capable sixes around (with 297 hp) but not exactly the most refined. It's mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission, which replaced a five-speed unit in the EX35 last year. This four-door hatchback doesn't have third-row seating and maxes out at five passengers -- or, more realistically, four. There is no room for a third seat, and the back seat is pretty cramped, with legroom in particularly short supply. Cargo space behind the rear seats is modest but is easily expanded now that the EX35 is available with a power-folding feature for the second-row seats. Technology-wise, one of our favorite features on the EX35 (and a few other Infinitis), is the Around View Monitor, which upstages a regular rearview camera by letting the driver see his or her car's surroundings from all sides. The full panoply of electronic driver aids is also available. Unlike its larger sibling, the EX35's interior is not highly styled, but it is very nicely finished, as you'd expect from an Infiniti.

The last time I drove an EX35 was in summer of 2008 when my mother was shopping for a car to replace her 2006 Lexus RX400h. She wanted to keep the usability of an SUV but wanted something that drove more like a car. Enter the EX -- essentially a G35 hatchback (and is sold as much in Japan). On paper, it was the perfect fit. Sadly, an already-outdated infotainment system, tight interior accommodations, and an unrefined five-speed automatic scuttled the deal.
