It seems that Infiniti is on to something with its way-small crossover.
The EX35 is much more compact and streamlined than any other available SUV or crossover.
Following the EX into the market in 2009 will be two new entries, one each from Mercedes-Benz and Audi: the GLK and the Q5.
Existing or yet to come, each of these competitors is (or will be) attractive on some plane, but the EX35 will remain the most sedanlike premium crossover out there.
