Infiniti EX35

The sleek EX35 is waht Infiniti likes to call a coupe-crossover, although it is really a compact five-door softroader. Powered by a 3.5-litre V6, it comes with a standard five-speed automatic and all-wheel-drive. It has an excellent leather interior, power front seats, 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, automatic headlamps, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, power tilt and telescopic wheel, six-CD/MP3 Bose stereo, power mirrors, stability control, and an advanced front-side-curtain airbag system. There is no low-range gearing as the EX35 sits low and the chassis is tuned for on-road dynamics. The FX35 also comes with nifty features such as intelligent keyless entry and start, as well as a seven-inch colour display with Infiniti controller for the trip computer and additional vehicle information, including the Infiniti DVD navigation system. But the most interesting feature by far is the around-view parking system that uses four cameras to simulate a 360-degree image of what is around the vehicle, thereby making parking easier in tight spots.

Infiniti M

The M is a car very similar to the G35, only slightly larger in size. Ever so lightly facelifted for 2008, it is offered with either a 3.5-litre V6 or a 4.5-litre V8 mated to the usual five-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode and a rear-wheel-drive chassis. The M35 and M45 are also a little more luxurious than the G35, by virtue of its extra cabin space. The suspension is independent double-wishbone in front and multi-link independent rear. Rear Active Steer adjusts the geometry of the rear suspension, according to steering input and vehicle speed, to enhance low-speed manoeuvrability and high-speed stability. Standard features on the M35 sedans include heated and cooled leather seats, ten-way power driverís seat, six-way power passenger seat, intelligent key with pushbutton ignition, Bluetooth, 18-inch wheels, six-CD/MP3 Bose stereo, vehicle information system with seven-inch screen, xenon headlamps with adaptive front lighting, and power sunroof. Optional features include surround sound with 14 speakers, DVD-based navigation system with eight-inch colour monitor, DVD entertainment system, and laser-based intelligent cruise control.
