2010 Infiniti EX35 Journey 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Did lots of research (Edmunds overall the best resource) and test drove broad range of crossover type vehicles-BMW, Acura, VW, Audi, Nissan, et al but chose EX35 primarily because of huge discounts and safety. That said an impressive vehicle-AWD confidently blasted through 300 miles of driving rain/wet roads, integration of superior technologies top notch, fit and finish superb, interior one of the best regardless of vehicle, exterior look is aggressive and subjective to your taste, driving dynamics-handling and acceleration exceptional-ride on firm side but comfortable. Cargo area is modest but very accessible and back seats tight with front seats back- but motor them forward and space ok
Dual climate zones up front. Performance, acceleration, stopping, turning radius. Back up all around view is a great safety feature. Sits up higher than sedan. Automatic controls for raising and lowering back seats (can raise back seats with a flick of a button from the up front). Dealer experience.
Allow navigation reprogramming on the move-passengers can be put to work. Fuel economy could be improved-get to work on that engineers. If I'd been the designer- don't tamper the roof line so much. Expand exterior mirror viewing area or develop a progressive lens type mirror for better visibility
