2009 Infiniti EX35 Press Kit: At a Glance

2009 Infiniti EX35

Introduced as an all-new model in December 2007, the Infiniti EX35 combines sports car style and performance, the 4-door convenience of a luxury sedan and the cargo carrying flexibility of a crossover – all wrapped up in a sleek, sculpted, elegant skin.

For 2009, the EX receives new standard equipment and revised package content. For example, the EX35 Base model now features standard leather-appointed seating, RearView Monitor, rear HVAC vents and roof rails. The EX35 Journey model adds a standard 6-disc CD autochanger, power tilt/telescoping steering column, coat hanger on the driver’s headrest and dual-zone automatic temperature control.

New or revised packages include an Around View Monitor Package, 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 a Technology Package, with an advanced Lane Departure Warning system (LDP), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Distance Control Assist (DCA) and Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning. Other packages include a Bose & Navigation Package and an 18-inch Wheel Package.

The 2009 Infiniti EX continues to offer an engaging interior environment, one that is both indulgent and inspiring, with a long list of available features including available advanced audio systems and a power-folding 2nd row seat.

And, like every Infiniti model, the 2009 EX35 also emphasizes exhilarating driving performance. Its 297-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine offers more power than its closest competitors, along with better fuel economy. An advanced 5-speed automatic transmission is standard, and both EX and EX Journey models are available with Infiniti Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.
