With the exception of its larger, more powerful 3.7-liter V6 engine, the 2013 Infiniti EX37 is basically the same vehicle as the 2012 EX35. The EX for 2013 offers the same curvaceous body, low ride height and lavish interior, all attributes that help it stand apart from more traditional luxury SUVs. A viable alternative to such luxury compacts as the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK350 and Acura RDX, Infiniti's EX37 seems more like a sleek 5-door coupe or a G37 wagon, which makes sense as the EX37 is based on the G37 sedan's platform. To its detriment, the EX's squat stance and low roof sacrifice both rear-seat room and overall cargo space. In return for sacrificing utility, the rear-wheel-drive EX37 rewards its owner with a comfortable ride, good performance and a sumptuous interior second to none.

When it left the factory in 2013, the EX37 included numerous standard features and an impressive options list filled with such high-end features as Bose audio, voice-activated navigation and a 360-degree Around View Monitor. While it doesn't handle as sharply as a BMW X3, the EX37 is still fun to drive, and its 325-horsepower V6 engine won't disappoint when the time comes to pass or merge.

What We Like

Sleek styling; gorgeous interior; a lot of high-tech features; powerful V6 engine; smooth ride

What We Don't

Small back seat and even smaller cargo area; poor fuel economy; bland exterior color choices

Fuel Economy & Engine Specs

The Infiniti EX37 is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine good for 325 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control is the only transmission choice. Environmental Protection Agency estimates for the rear-wheel-drive EX35 are 17 miles per gallon in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. All-wheel-drive (AWD) models earn nearly the same ratings of 17 mpg city/24 mpg hwy.

Standard Features & Options

The 2013 EX37 is offered in two trims, base and Journey. Both offer the option of all-wheel drive.

The EX37 features such standard amenities as keyless entry and push-button starting, full leather seating, an 8-way power driver's seat, a 4-way power passenger seat, automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels, a 7-in in-dash color display, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD/satellite radio audio system with a USB/iPod input port, cruise control, heated outside power mirrors, a tilt-telescopic steering column and a rear backup monitor.

The EX37 AWD adds all-wheel drive and heated front seats.

The EX37 Journey brings heated front seats, a power moonroof, Bluetooth cellphone connectivity, wood interior trim and a power adjustable steering column.

Options for the EX35 are bundled into packages and limited to the Journey model. The Technology package brings lane-departure prevention, a blind spot monitoring system and Intelligent Cruise Control, while the Premium package adds a 360-degree Around View Monitor, rear parking sensors and an 11-speaker Bose sound system with hard-drive music storage. The Deluxe Touring package adds an 8-way power passenger's seat, plus power lumbar support in the driver's seat, 19-in alloy wheels, a dual-occupant memory system for the driver's seat, steering wheel position and side mirrors, a reverse tilt-down outside mirror, a second-row seat with a power return feature, adaptive auto-leveling bi-xenon headlights, aluminum roof rails and a coat-hanger headrest clip.

Pricing

The 2013 EX37 retains better than average resale value, with Journey models holding more value than the base cars. The EX37 favorably compares to the Acura RDX and will likely cost more than a comparably equipped Cadillac SRX but less than a Mercedes-Benz GLK350. For a good idea of the EX37's price range, we suggest checking the used-car values at KBB.com. You can also search the Autotrader Classifieds to see what models are currently for sale in your area.

Recalls

To date, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued no recalls for the 2013 Infiniti EX37.

Recall repairs are required by law, even if the vehicle is out of warranty. Your dealer can check to see if the repairs were performed and, if not, will fix the car at no charge to you. You can also check the NHTSA website; simply enter your vehicle's identification number for a list of performed recall repairs.

Safety Ratings & Warranties

NHTSA has not tested the EX37 under its new testing guidelines. However, under the old NHTSA testing system, the EX35 earned four out of five stars in the front driver and passenger crash test and five stars for the driver and passenger in the side-impact test. The EX35 earned four stars in the rollover test. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2013 EX37 a Good rating in its moderate-overlap, side-impact, roof-strength and head-restraint tests.

When new, the EX37 came with a 4-year/60,000-mile basic warranty and 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty. Infiniti also offered a fully transferable extended warranty that could be purchased when the car was new, so be sure to check if the car you're buying has such a warranty. If you buy your EX37 through Infiniti's certified pre-owned (CPO) program, the basic warranty period is extended to 72 months or 100,000 miles from the vehicle's in-service date. You can also purchase an additional 2 years and 20,000 miles of coverage through the CPO program. To qualify, a vehicle must have less than 60,000 miles and be no older than 4 years from its in-service date.

Other Cars to Consider

2013 Acura RDX -- The RDX offers a more comfortable rear seat and better cargo space. Its V6 engine isn't as powerful as the EX37's V6, but it returns better fuel economy.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 -- The GLK350 will cost more than the Infiniti, but it offers a more dynamic driving experience, a firmer ride and a few more luxury features. The EX37 bests the GLK350 in both hp and fuel economy, but can't compete with the fuel economy from the diesel-powered GLK250 BlueTEC.

2013 BMW X3 -- The X3 places performance and handling over ride comfort and a soft interior. It has a more useful rear seat and cargo area but, like the Mercedes, will cost more to own and service. Driving enthusiasts will love the X3's available 300-hp turbocharged engine and standard AWD.

Autotrader's Advice

The EX37 Journey is our choice. The Journey trim opens the door to more high-end features and more lavish interior. Since the EX37 is powered by its rear wheels versus its front wheels, anyone living in areas where snow or ice regularly cover the roadway would be well advised to opt for an all-wheel-drive model.
