The Inside

The Inside  - 2010 Infiniti EX35 Review - Reviews - Infiniti EX

Small but well-appointed, the cabin works well for one or two adults; four will find it cramped. The front seats are exceptionally comfortable Ч and I'm always ready to carp about the slightest seating issues. Leather upholstery is standard this year, and it's a respectable grade for this class. Tall drivers might want a bit more seat travel, however; I'm 5-foot-11 and had the seat just an inch or so shy of all the way back.

Adults should find enough headroom in back, but legroom is limited and the rear seats aren't adjustable. With a high floor and a large hump in the center, foot space is also tight, and my thighs ended up hovering above the cushions. By the numbers, the EX has the least rear legroom of nine major competitors. Numbers don't always tell the whole story, but here they do. It's a squeeze back there.

Cabin materials are respectable, with an upholstery-stitched panel over the gauges and padded surfaces nearly everywhere else. I've never been taken by Infiniti's center controls Ч the buttons operate smoothly enough, but the dials feel a bit loose Ч but other areas, from the gearshift to the turn-signal stalks, operate with the weighty precision I'd expect in a luxury car.
