2012 Infiniti EX35 Press Kit: At a Glance

2009 Infiniti EX35

The 2012 Infiniti EX35 once again combines a sleek, sculpted, elegant skin, exhilarating driving performance and an engaging interior environment – along with a suite of technologies such as an available Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system and the Around View® Monitor, which utilizes four small cameras located front, side and rear to give the driver a “top-down view” of the outside of the vehicle and help reduce blind spots when parking.

Enhancements for the 2012 model year include the addition of HomeLink® Universal Transceiver as standard equipment on the EX35 Journey (previously part of the Deluxe Touring Package).

Key highlights of the 2012 Infiniti EX include a standard 297-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine matched with a responsive 7-speed automatic transmission, available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, standard 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and available 19-inch wheels and tires (Deluxe Touring Package), standard leather-appointed seating and available power up-folding 2nd row seat.

Other advanced technologies range from standard RearView Monitor to available Lane Departure Prevention system (LDP), Intelligent Cruise Control, Distance Control Assist (DCA) and Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning.
