If you think of the EX35 as a tall coupe, it's easy to love. It handles, brakes, and steers nearly as well as the G35, which is to say, really well, and actually rides better than its stubby stablemate. Although it looks more like a crossover than a wagon, its resemblance to the latter could turn off many American consumers. This is unfortunate as the EX35 is an amazingly well-rounded vehicle. It strikes a near-perfect balance between sport and luxury in the way it drives and looks, both inside and out, and, as evidenced by our recently departed Four Seasons 2008 EX35, it is reliable to a fault. Admittedly, the EX35's utility is compromised but to me that's where the compromising ends.
