Used Car: 2013 Infiniti EX Review
With its powerful V6 engine and sport sedan-like handling, reviewers said the 2013 Infiniti EX37 is one of the most fun SUVs to drive in the class.
The 2013 Infiniti EX’s base engine is a V6 that reviewers said delivers ample power and brisk acceleration. According to test drivers, the EX’s seven-speed automatic transmission provides fluid, immediate downshifts. The EPA estimates that the 2013 Infiniti EX gets up to 17/25 mpg city/highway, which is lower than what most competitors get. The Infiniti EX37 earned reviewer praise for its athletic, sport sedan-like handling, and they noted that it’s one of the most agile SUVs in the class. They were also impressed with its strong brakes and well-weighted steering. Some critics commented that the EX has a firm ride, especially models fitted with available 19-inch wheels.
Automotive journalists were impressed with the 2013 Infiniti EX’s opulent cabin design and abundance of high-quality materials, including leather and wood trim. The EX seats five and comes standard with leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats. Heated front seats are available. Test drivers agreed that the front seats are comfortable and provide a good driving position, though a handful mentioned that rearward visibility could be better. However, they complained that back-seat space is especially cramped, with minimal head- and legroom. The 2013 EX comes with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a USB port, satellite radio and a rearview camera. Available features include a sunroof, Bluetooth, navigation, an 11-speaker Bose stereo system, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, forward collision alert, lane departure warning and an Around View monitor, which uses multiple cameras to give a 360-degree view around the vehicle. Automotive writers praised the EX’s straightforward, well-placed climate, navigation and audio controls. The EX37 has 18.6 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in use, which is one of the smallest cargo holds in the class.
Other SUVs to Consider
Test drivers said the 2013 BMW X3 has plenty of room for adults in both rows of seats, and it offers more cargo space as well. Reviewers thought the X3's base turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides ample power, and with it, the X3 earns better fuel economy estimates than the EX.
The 2013 Volvo XC60 has more cargo space than most other SUVs in the class. Automotive journalists praised its handsome cabin and high-quality materials, as well as its abundance of available safety features.
