Infiniti's pioneering, all-wheel drive Infiniti EX coupe crossover will cost from £35,200 on the road when UK deliveries begin in September 2009. Highly influential, the Infiniti EX arrives with an offer to UK car buyers every bit as groundbreaking as its design.
Behind the price are levels of performance, quality, standard equipment, technology and customer service on offer to British car buyers in one model for the first time. The UK is the 12th Western European country to feel Infiniti's Total Ownership Experience where the promise is to treat every customer like a VIP and make choosing, buying and running a car more rewarding than ever.
The elegantly styled Infiniti EX is available in two forms, the EX37 and the EX37 GT, both equipped with a highly efficient yet charismatic 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine offering stirring performance and sound. Acceleration from rest to 62mph takes just 6.4 seconds, a figure that shames many a sports car. Yet the standard seven-speed automatic gearbox with manual mode and electronic all-wheel drive biased towards the rear wheels ensures the speed is totally controlled.
Both Infiniti EX models are exceptionally fully featured with items Infiniti thinks its customers expect - but also many they don't including Scratch Shield paint and electric folding rear seats. Every Infiniti EX has, for example, 18 inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, Cruise Control, Bluetooth, adaptive Xenon headlamps plus LED rears, electrically adjustable front seats, iPod connection and rear privacy glass - all more usually found on an options list. The UK is also one of the first among Infiniti's global markets where the Infiniti EX comes with the all-new Connectiviti information and entertainment platform that Infiniti believes offers more multimedia-for-the-money than any other premium system.
In optional Connectiviti+ satellite navigation form, owners will never be short of a place to visit. In an industry first, Infiniti has teamed up with Michelin Guides to offer 22,000 across Europe taken from the Michelin Red Guide (for hotels and restaurants) and the Green Guide (for scenic tours, tourist attractions and museums). Connectiviti+ also comprises for the UK automatic warnings of stationary speed cameras and a 'smart' way of recalculating route guidance to avoid jams that takes into account traffic count and accident probability. The system even makes it possible to watch a DVD in the car - assuming the Infiniti EX is stationary, of course.
Integral to every Infiniti EX are attributes such as light weight, thanks to the many aluminium parts, VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) technology to optimise engine efficiency, and the model's signature long bonnet and sharply tapering roofline. This distinctive profile is a direct result of the Infiniti EX platform which is shared with its sister, the Infiniti G37 Coupe.
Delivering exceptional driving appeal and outstanding quality of design and manufacture, the Infiniti EX is an all-roads, all-weather, all-rounder with exclusivity guaranteed. Infiniti is not aiming for ubiquity with the Infiniti EX.
