Crossover SUV shoppers, by the very nature of the vehicle they seek, are a demanding bunch. They want something that drives like a sedan, yet is a capable people mover and competent cargo hauler. That’s a tall order to fill.
But not everyone seeking this versatility wants a vehicle that has all of these traits in equal measure. Some drivers are willing to sacrifice some utility in exchange for an extra helping of sporty driving character.
Used Infiniti EX Models
Produced from 2011 through 2013, the Infiniti EX was a five-passenger small luxury crossover available in base and Journey trim levels. Initially, the EX came with a 3.5-liter V6 making 297 horsepower, matched to a seven-speed automatic with manual shift control. For 2013, a more powerful engine was fitted, a 3.7-liter V6 packing 325 hp. Either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive was available. Regardless of which engine it has, an EX provides swift acceleration, with the 0-60-mph dash taking only about 6 seconds.
