2008 Infiniti EX35 Press Kit: At a Glance

2008 Infiniti EX35

The all-new 2008 Infiniti EX35, which goes on sale at Infiniti retailers nationwide in late December 2007, offers an exceptional combination of seductive design, elegant interior and advanced technology systems.  The EX35 also showcases two innovative systems: Around View Monitor (AVM), which utilizes four small front, side and rear-mounted cameras to give the driver a “top-down view” of the outside of the vehicle and help reduce blind spots when parking; and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), which takes Infiniti’s currently available Lane Departure Warning System into a new dimension of safety by actively using the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system to help assist the driver in maintaining lane position if the vehicle inadvertently starts to drift out of the intended lane.  EX35 is the first production vehicle in North America to offer AVM, and the second production vehicle in the world (following the 2008 Infiniti M sedan) to offer LDP.  Additionally, the new EX35 also becomes first Infiniti vehicle to feature “Scratch Shield,” a special “self-healing” clearcoat paint.

EX35’s sculpted elegance expresses a timeless appeal – sleek lines that portray speed, grace and finesse.  Its layout combines the look and feel of a luxury coupe and an SUV’s interior flexibility.

EX35 is also conceived to offer a reinvigorating and engaging interior environment, one that is both indulgent and inspiring, with a long list of available features including leather-appointed seating, advanced audio and navigation systems and a power-folding 2nd row seat.

Like every Infiniti model, the 2008 EX35 also emphasizes exhilarating driving performance, combining an advanced 3.5-liter V6 engine, 5-speed automatic transmission and available intelligent all-wheel drive.
