There's a new review of the EX published today in the National Post (Canada) (http://www.nationalpost.com/life/driving/story.html?id=420253&p=1), "Sports coupe in disguise" by David Booth.

Excerpt: Just as TV spy Maxwell Smart was a master of disguise, so, too, is Infiniti's EX35 the Agent 86 of sport-utility vehicles. What you may see is a crossover and it may be running on oversized rims, but, beneath the surface, the Infiniti is really a sports coupe dressed up as a faux-by-faux.

Also, here are a coupla bonus EX-related tidbits found elsewhere around the net recently:

Autosleuth (http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=970019) has more on the smaller luxury crossover rumored to be in development by Lexus to compete with the EX35, x3 & RDX:

Excerpt: Toyota Motor Sales USA President Jim Lentz says that a small sport ute could appeal to customers "sick of the suburbs, but who don't want to give up the utility of their SUV," he told industry trade paper Automotive News. The new model would likely be based on the Toyota RAV4 platform, but that's most likely where any similarities would end.

And in a review of the new Murano last week Dan Neil of the Los Angeles Times (http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/highway1/la-hy-neil26mar26,0,2327457.story)concludes:

If I've got to have a luxe crossover — and I owned Nissan stock — I'd go for the smaller but infinitely more charismatic Infiniti EX35.
