I thought some of you EXers & wannabe EXers might be interested in checking out a couple of recent online features profiling the future competition for the EX on the road & in the marketpace - vehicles which are either currently on tap or expected to be in the pipeline shorly.

Motor Trend has a First Look at the 2009 Audi Q5 (http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/suvs/112_0804_2009_audi_q5_first_look/).

Also from Motor Trend, a First Look at the 2010 Mercedes GLK-350 4Matic (http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/suvs/112_0804_2010_mercedes_benz_glk350_4matic/).

And from autoblog.com, we've got a First Drive of the BMW x6 (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/04/11/first-drive-2009-bmw-x6-xdrive35i-and-xdrive50i/)

The X3 is the more logical BMW competion, the X6 is almost twice the price of an EX35. The Benz looks a little boxy, and the Audi looks interesting.

We looked at so many cars (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/The_Japanese.html) we lost count. We even had a chance to actually check out some options that haven't even come out yet like the VW Tiguan (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/VW_Tiguan.html)
http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/The_Europeans_files/shapeimage_19.jpg

http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/The_Europeans_files/shapeimage_2.jpg


In addition to the X6 (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/BMW_X6.html), the GLK (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/Mercedes-Benz_GLK.html), and the Q5 (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/Audi_Q5.html) which was unveiled today in China (saw it live on Audi TV) (http://tv.audi.com/)) there are others that will be interesting options as well, including the Volvo XC60 (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/Volvo_XC60.html)
http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/Volvo_XC60_files/xc60konc_fram_big.jpg

Cadillac Provoq (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/Cadillac_Provoq.html)
http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/The_Home_Team_files/shapeimage_8.jpg

and eventually the Lincoln MKT (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/Lincoln_MKT_Concept.html)
http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/The_Home_Team_files/shapeimage_11.jpg

I know some of these options will probably never make it to the U.S. even though the Europeans seem to be embracing the whole SUV/CUV movement, but it's good to see that the sporty crossover segment is going to be getting more and more competitive and that just means that the options are going to get better and better. The future looks good.

Fantastic, espressomac! You really did your homework, didn'tcha!

Your post offers one-stop shopping for people interested in this segment.

I'm still liking the lines on the EX the best though. And the EX's swoopy/cushy interior still beats 'em all as far as I can see.

Now maybe if Aston-Martin were to make a crossover of that Rapide concept car they're supposedly finally going to start selling....

I agree with you on the looks of the EX over the others. The XC60 and the Delta look interesting and the MKT looks pretty cool too, but for now I prefer that long hood look of the EX.

Don't know what was more fun, building the car shopping website (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/LT_%26_ET_Go_car_shopping.html) or actually looking at all the cars we did. Certainly gave us fun stuff to do for a while.

EX is no where near Audi, BMW, MB in terms driving experience.
We all know we come to EX because of look and cost.
Audi Q5 is 7 speed, dual clutch transaction and 33mpg for turbo version and 43mpg for diesel version. These features make it million miles ahead of EX35.

Wow the picture is deceiving. It looks like a small hatchback to me, but there's nothing in the picture to give it perspective.

To me, the EX has classic good looks and the perfect balance of luxury, sport and utility without being cumbersome. If I worked for Infiniti I would try to bring the beauty of the FX to as many models as possible, so I think they made a good move on designing the EX. To me the EX and the FX are the best looking vehicles on the road. Most of those above are too busy looking for my taste. I know that may make some waves on this board, but I am not going around on the BMW boards making statements just for the sake of being cranky...

In my opinion out of the above, the Saab and the Audi look the cleanest and most competitive with the EX, but the Audi kind of looks Honda-ish from the side. I like those Lincolns, I didn't know about the MKT till now. Looks cool.

Definetely deceiving
Probably because of the design.
It is slightly longer than X5, about the same width, but not as tall
Though, it sits about as high from the ground as X5
Interior room reminded me of the X5 as well, when i sat in it on the auto show.
Other than the roof, it's very simillar to X5, it's huge
Having said that, it's clearly FX competitor, not the EX
Other forums suggest the same thing

I just don't see why some people insist on hating in these forums when they own other vehicles. Why not just stay in the M forum and keep your comments there. It doesn't help anyone to hear what cars are better than the EX. Who cares, people get what makes sense for them. Obviously everyone has different tastes and priorities, or else the roads would be very boring and not much to look at. People come to this forum to get useful advice and share ideas. Why not try to keep it to that?

As you can see, I am very cranky today!

Audi Q5 is 7 speed, dual clutch transaction and 33mpg for turbo version and 43mpg for diesel version. These features make it million miles ahead of EX35.

If you're lucky to be in Europe, that's all well and good. However, the US version, coming Q1 2009, is going to be a 3.2L 6 speed triptronic. It's going to deliver 265 HP and 243 ft-lb of torque, getting the Q5 from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds. So basically compared to the current EX35, the Q5 is less powerful, doesn't accelerate as fast, and gets here more than a whole year later. I guess in Q1 2009 we'll be able to more correctly compare the Q5 to whatever EX35 is available then.

Also, auto sites like Kicking Tires specifically indicate that the competitors of the Q5 are the EX35, the Land Rover LR2, Acura RDX, and the BMW X3.

PS. I agree with EXceptional Woman. I'm sure there are any number of Q5 forums where you can sing its praises. BTW, I really like Audi's -- I own an Audi Cabriolet and I love it. For us the EX35 is the perfect complement.

I can see you very cranky and narrow-minded.
People are doing exactly what you "advice" them to do. They just share their feelings and you get mad because people give negative comment about your EX. I can see you a loser and less successful in life since you cannot take negative feedback. You need to learn to be a nice person otherwise you not worth hearing from people here.
Actually, I am quite successful in life, not that it is any of your concern. I think forums are a great outlet to share opinions, and I'm not saying that shouldn't be happening. I have seen many comments here that maybe didn't make me smile, but I understand people have different opinions. But I can tell the difference between sharing differing opinions and just plain being negative for the sake of being mean. Before my earlier post I did a quick search on some of your contributions to this forum, and to no surprise, you have basically contributed nothing. I can't find one thing you have said that would help a fellow member make a decision on their car purchase. You have only had negative things to say that are of no benefit to anyone except yourself. You think you are above people because you are the self-proclaimed first person to have heard about this vehicle and have wanted it since the beginning. Good for you. I am guessing this is what you need to do to make yourself feel better about choosing the M over the EX. As far as I'm concerned, your comments on this forum are a waste of everyone's time.

All I'm saying is if you don't have anything helpful to add, you are better off spending your time elsewhere because no one has an appreciation for the likes of you here.

espressomac
04-21-2008, 08:21 PM
Hear, hear! EXceptional, you are spot on. We seek useful information here, not useless criticism. And we especially don't need false information. We all know the EX isn't perfect, but no car is. So we're happy to discuss its shortcomings and our wish lists for future versions, but we certainly prefer doing it in a friendly and positive environment. So if folks just want to criticize the EX for the sake of criticizing it, then this probably isn't the right place -- lest you want to be considered a troll.

OK, I just have to finish my thoughts. Here is the difference between me and kotoma. If I were like kotoma, I would set up a username on the M and Audi boards and comment on the following:

The M is the ugly stepchild of the Infiniti family, and basically looks like a 2006 Honda Civic.

Audis have terrible hard, cold interiors. Their style is boring, with no new news on exterior styling for as long as I can remember. The lowest end model is no better than a Civic or a Sentra in terms of engine capacity and horsepower, with a price tag that is way more than it is really worth.

But luckily I am not like kotoma, and I act in a more tasteful manner by keeping these thoughts to myself. Why? Because they are of zero value to anyone. They only make people feel bad. They don't help someone make an informed decision about the car.

And further considering that kotoma was really hot on the EX and wanting it so much that he nearly cried when he saw the size of the rear seat, causing him to buy the M instead, I would venture to guess that whatever comments he makes about the quality of the EX are purely out of spite and distaste.

I am done on this topic. Sorry to have to waste everyone else's time. But I have to call them when I see them. Such comments are not welcome here (at least not by me). I would appreciate it if everyone tried to be considerate when posting.

LEXA
04-21-2008, 11:26 PM
Yikes! I started this thread with the hopes we'd get a nice, spirited & hopefully extended discussion, but I was also hoping we could keep it light.

Kotoma, of course there's nothing wrong at all with talking about a vehicle's limitations or quirks, or talking about things we might wish were better, but I'm sure you'll agree there is a difference between honest criticism & constant gratuitous slamming, right?

Well, the EX is new and so is this forum, but I'm sure you know that since the inception of the internet one of the perennial problems for all automotive forums are non-owners who, for reasons which most folks find completely incomprehensible, seem compelled to come on threads for the sole purpose of putting down the vehicle & flaming the owners.

In fact, I once belonged to a car forum that actually had to shut down completely for an extended period because it had been plagued by a perpetual disruptor. He was so thoroughly obsessed with making everyone else miserable with his mindless personal insults & tediously negative harping that the forum was rendered essentially worthless.

(Why anybody in their right mind over the age of twelve would want to waste one second of their lives doing this is a mystery to me, but I've always suspected the people who are motivated to troll on car forums aren't, in fact, old enough to drive in real life.)

So, because lots of us are justifiably leery of the legendary propensity of auto forums for attracting weirdly obsessive idiots like that, you can expect that people here are going be hypervigilant about discouraging any of that stuff at all at the very outset lest this forum ultimately devolve into a childish flamefest as well.

I'm telling you all this stuff that you probably already know just to make completely sure you understand where Exceptional Woman was probably coming from in her original comment to you. Some of us may be overly paranoid of this forum getting wrecked by that garbage because, well, frankly we have a right to be overly paranoid about it - we've seen it happen elsewhere.

And I want to be clear that I'm not suggesting that you're one of those creepy trolls too, there's no evidence of that. Yet.

But I do have to mention that at some point here you may have let your temper get the best of you & you crossed the line when you made a personal comment:" You're a loser etc." And then you jumped way, waaay over it when you called another member a liar.

Listen, it'd just be so much better for this forum's longterm viability if we all try our best to avoid the ad hominum stuff entirely, ok?

Whew! Enough of this now, all of us. Maybe we can all just go cool off with a timeout on the A/C Seats thread. ;-)

BTW, back on topic: I tested the BMW X3, & I have to emphatically (but respectfully, lol) disagree about the handling - I actually found the EX superior in that regard. I'm by no means an expert, but I suspect assessing handling is probably just as subjective a judgement as aesthetic ones are.

Thanks LEXA and Clay. I am a little disappointed with myself for getting so fired up. I tried to keep it cool initially, but then went over the edge after I was provoked. I am sorry if I initially misjudged anyone's comments. I may have been overly sensitive, and the thing with communicating online is often there are misunderstandings that just normally wouldn't happen when you can hear tone of voice or see facial expressions. At any rate, I'm sorry I tore up your thread, LEXA, and I hope if anything, people were somewhat entertained.

I have said before in this Forum that I never understood people who go to enthusiast forums to endlessly complain about a vehicle that does not interest them or fit their needs It is obvious that it is only to get a rise out of people. You see them all over the Web. They are best ignored. Whatever you say to them, they will only respond with more attacks. It seems to be a little like road rage.

Sorry, late to the discussion, but the EX is a clear winner vs. the GLK geez its ugly, and the Audi, which kinda looks like a KIA to me. I think the X6 looks phenominal, but I don't think people would seriously be cross-shopping those two. More lilely the X3 (as someone else pointed out) and I think the EX is a much better bargain.

EXceptional Woman,

Thank much. I like to say that I did it because I really wanted to get to know how to use iWeb. People say I did it because I have waaaaaay too much free time.

I think the part I enjoyed most was the blog. You had to live to believe some of the anecdotes. Car shopping in Calle Ocho in Miami...well that was an experience all on its own.

If others are undecided and they take away some useful information, then great, it will have been worth it. I've done a few updates but I'm already working on my next iWeb project.

I'll try to continue adding stuff to our Infiniti EX35 page (http://web.mac.com/etorres/New_Voiture/Infiniti_EX35_Slideshow.html), especially as my wife takes more and more photos. I already told her I want to her to take pictures of the EX35 next to all the lighthouses in Florida.

Thanks again!

Any chance that we'll be getting the 7 speed tranny found anytime soon? Heck it gets the FX35 to 60 in 6.1 - the EX could surely use this tranny to get a 0-60 of 5.9, and maybe get 25, 26 highway mpg. Also - I hope Infiniti can add some kind of towing capability to this thing. The X3 can tow 3500 lbs, as can the new Land Rover (i think). They shouldn't even try to label this as an SUV at all if it can't tow - making it more and more obvious that it is just a G35 hatchback.

I have never seen the EX35 classified as an SUV. As well, for Land Rover, if you are stating the LR2 can tow 3500lbs, I doubt it, it has a small engine with very little torque (LR wasn't even offering a towing package for it when I was looking). If you are comparing the EX to an LR3, it's not a fair comparison as the LR3 is an SUV.

Yes, the EX is basically a G35 hatchback, I don't think Infiniti has been trying to sell it as anything other than a CUV version of the G35.

Also from Motor Trend, a First Look at the 2010 Mercedes GLK-350 4Matic (http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/suvs/112_0804_2010_mercedes_benz_glk350_4matic/).

And from autoblog.com, we've got a First Drive of the BMW x6 (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/04/11/first-drive-2009-bmw-x6-xdrive35i-and-xdrive50i/)
