2010 Infiniti EX Review

The 2010 Infiniti EX has a powerful engine and great driving dynamics, but a small cargo capacity. It is great for anyone who wants an SUV with sporty performance, but those looking for a practical family vehicle should look at other 2010 compact SUVs.

Pros & Cons

  • Strong engine and good handling
  • Limited cargo space and rear passenger room

2010 Infiniti EX Overview

When it was new, critics’ favorite aspect of the 2010 Infiniti EX was its powerful engine and sport sedan-like handling. They noted, however, that its cramped back seat and small cargo area limit its ability to be useful carrying passengers and their cargo.

The EX is powered by a 297-horsepower V6. Its horsepower rating is far greater than the ratings of base engines in other 2010 compact SUVs, and its fuel economy isn’t bad as a result. With rear-wheel drive, the EX manages 17/24 mpg city/highway. Opting for all-wheel drive lowers that to 17/23, which is typical for the class. While performance is this SUV’s strong suit, utility is not. With the rear seats folded, maximum cargo capacity is among the lowest in the class.

Inside, critics said the interior was well laid-out and has good materials, but is lacking in space. Although complaints about cramped back seats are common in the class, some critics mentioned the absence of headroom, especially in the rear, thanks to the EX’s sloping roofline. Standard equipment includes leather seats, a rearview camera and a six-speaker stereo. Upper trim levels and option packages add things like Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, a Bose stereo, navigation and a multi-view camera system. Also available are lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. The EX debuted in 2008 and has changed very little since, so you might be able to save some money by shopping for an older model.

Other Cars to Consider

If you like the EX’s handling but want more interior space, consider the 2010 BMW X3. It can hold up to 71 cubic feet of cargo, and critics said it also has very good handling. Its fuel economy is no better than the EX’s, but it is available with a manual transmission, which driving enthusiasts may enjoy.

Another 2010 compact SUV you may like is the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK. The GLK was new for 2010, and reviewers liked its styling, handling and well-built interior. It isn’t as powerful as the EX, but most critics thought it was plenty powerful. It can also carry more cargo than the EX, making it a better choice for people looking for something a bit more practical.
