Infiniti has announced its pricing and options list for the 2010 EX35 lineup this week, and the news is all good. The Japanese luxury brand has mirrored last year's MSRP on all four models, yet spread some additional icing on the cake to sweeten the deal on the 297-horsepower crossover.
The standard rear-drive EX35 rolls with a base price of $33,800 (all prices exclude destination, tax, and fees), while the range-topping EX35 Journey with all-wheel drive starts at $37,400. The automaker hasn't touched the exterior, so the new equipment is all found under the skin. All models now benefit from standard heated outside mirrors, auto on/off headlamps, and a USB connection port for iPod and MP3 players. The EX35 AWD model gains heated front seats, while the EX35 Journey models are fitted with heated front seats and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity. Models with the Bose Premium Audio package (but without the Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation system) pick up a 2GB Music Box.
The option packages now include a new Bose and Around View Monitor package (which includes nav at no additional charge), and the Navigation package has been upgraded with Bluetooth Streaming Audio, XM NavWeather and a Zagat Restaurant Guide. The 2010 Infiniti EX models are currently on sale nationwide. The full press release is after the jump.
Infiniti today announced pricing on the 2010 Infiniti EX, which is on sale now at Infiniti retailers nationwide. The EX combines sports car style and performance, the 4-door convenience of a luxury sedan and excellent cargo utility – all wrapped up in a sleek, sculpted, elegant skin. Like every Infiniti, the EX emphasizes exhilarating driving performance, combining an advanced 297-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, standard 5-speed automatic transmission and available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.
The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)* for the 2010 Infiniti EX are:
EX35 RWD $33,800
EX35 Journey RWD $36,000
EX35 AWD $35,200
EX35 Journey AWD $37,400
Enhancements for 2010 start with revised option package selection and content. In addition to the new Bose® and Around View Monitor Package, which includes an Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) with Plasmacluster™ air purification, the Navigation Package has been upgraded with addition of Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, XM NavWeather™ (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and Zagat® Restaurant Guide. The Navigation Package is offered at no charge with the Bose® and Around View™ Monitor Package.
Other changes include the addition of heated outside mirrors and auto on/off headlights to the EX, while heated front seats are now standard on EX35 AWD (also standard on Journey models). A standard Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System is added to EX35 Journey models, while EX audio systems have been enhanced with a USB Connection Port for iPod® and other compatible devices (standard on all models) and the addition of a 2GB Music Box® hard drive to the Bose® Premium Audio system (on vehicles without the Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation system).
For 2010, EX continues to offer an engaging interior environment with a long list of available features, including standard premium leather-appointed seating and RearView Monitor, and available driver's seat headrest coat hanger, advanced audio systems and power up-folding 2nd row seat.
EX also offers a host of available advanced technologies. The Around View™ Monitor (part of the new Bose® and Around View™ Monitor Package) 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. Other available driving aids include Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Intelligent Cruise Control (Full Speed Range), Distance Control Assist (DCA) and Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW).
Infiniti offers a full-line of luxury performance automobiles that inspire at every turn, including the G Coupe, Sedan and first-ever Convertible, M sedan, EX and FX crossovers, and the QX full-size SUV.
