Low-End Utility  - 2010 Infiniti EX35 Review - Reviews - Infiniti EX

Though aided by a few tricks Ч among them optional power-folding rear seats Ч the EX35's cargo area is small. The steeply angled hatch means you'll have to fold the rear seats to fit taller cargo; indeed, with the seats up, cargo volume is just 18.6 cubic feet. With the seats down, it's 47.4 cubic feet. Both figures are the smallest in this competitive set, though they compare better with small luxury wagons.

Another strike on the utility front: Infiniti says the EX isn't intended to tow anything. Most competitors are rated between 1,500 and 3,500 pounds.
