2011 Infiniti EX30d GT Premium now available with more equipment as standard

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 1, 2011

Infiniti offers more equipment as standard on the EX lineup, its compact coupe crossover. The GT grade gets the advanced navigation and premium sound system as standard. The top-of-the-range GT Premium will get a glass sunroof and BOSE audio system as standard. Each EX, except for the entry-level EX30d, features Infiniti’s sophisticated Connectiviti+ navigation.

The GT model already has an impressive array of features including leather trim, heated, electrically adjustable front seats and electrically adjustable steering column.

The EX also offers intelligent all-wheel-drive, 7-speed automatic transmission, Xenon cornering headlights and electrically foldable rear seat bench – offered as standard on each EX including the entry-level EX30d. The EX technology leader, the GT Premium trim level, receives Connectiviti+ and several of the most advanced safety systems ever developed.

These include Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW). The top-of-the-line model also now offers as standard a set of 19-inch wheels, an electrically operated glass sunroof, and a premium BOSE audio. Buyers of any of the models in the range can opt for the Malbec Black paint, the latest metallic Scratch Shield finish that was first seen on the M saloon.

Infiniti is also offering upgrades for the EX’s technology flagship, the GT Premium. As it is, the GT Premium is already fitted with Connectiviti+ and an assortment of advanced safety systems like Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW). However, starting June 1, the GT Premium will be provided with an electrically operated glass sunroof, premium Bose audio and 19-inch wheels.

Connectiviti+ is an innovative platform that combines a number of information and entertainment functions to allow users to access them easily. As powered by a 30GB hard disk drive, navigation includes a number of elements like 3D graphics of junctions, points of interest on a high-resolution touchscreen display, voice recognition, and direct access to Michelin’s Green and Red Guides. Featuring a 10GB Music Box, the entertainment function has become more accessible, with Gracenote music database integrated into the HDD helping label all tracks.

Thanks to a Bose 11-speaker Premium Sound System, users can turn the cabin of their Infiniti EX into a concert hall. Standard features that are offered as options on other vehicles in the class include a USB port, Bluetooth for hands-free mobile phone use, DVD movie playback and audio streaming.

On the other hand, every EX model could now be finished in the optional Malbec Black paint, a metallic Scratch Shield finish that made its debut on the M saloon. All of these changes reflect the desire of EX customers for top spec models, which has been an Infiniti trend for the past three years since the performance luxury brand first made its presence known in Europe.

The latest iteration of the Infiniti EX has a starting price of £37,130 for the EX30d powered by a V6 diesel engine that offers 406 lb ft of torque. It will be available starting June 1 at Infiniti Centres in Reading, Birmingham, Glasgow and at its London showroom at 77 Piccadilly.

INFINITI ICES THE EX CAKE

The SUV standard-setter for standard equipment, the Infiniti EX, is more fully featured than ever from this summer. In a mid-year specification adjustment, every EX apart from the entry-level EX30d now comes with Infiniti’s sophisticated Connectiviti+ navigation and entertainment platform and a premium Bose® audio system, among other changes.

The revisions confirm the mid-grade GT model in particular as one of the most complete cars in its class – without recourse to the expensive options beloved by the EX’s rivals. In addition to Connectiviti+ and Bose® audio, GT models in either EX37 petrol or EX30d diesel form are now equipped with 19-inch wheels – as standard.

The new features join an already impressive list of equipment on every GT model – leather trim, heated, electrically adjustable front seats and electrically adjustable steering column included. These are all in addition to signature EX features – such as intelligent all-wheel-drive, 7-speed automatic transmission, Xenon cornering headlights and electrically foldable rear seat bench – standard on every EX including the entry-level EX30d.

There are upgrades too for the GT Premium, the EX range’s technology flagship. Already equipped with Connectiviti+ and some of the most advanced safety systems yet developed – including Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW) – GT Premium models from 1 June will also feature as standard an electrically operated glass sunroof as well as premium Bose® audio and 19-inch wheels.

In other EX news, every model in the range is now available with the paint option of Malbec Black, latest metallic Scratch Shield finish which was first available on the M saloon.

The changes represent the icing on the EX cake and reflect customers’ desire for top spec models, a trend Infiniti has seen in all of its ranges since Japan’s newest performance luxury brand first arrived in Europe almost three years ago.

Prices of the latest EX models start from £37,130 for the EX30d V6 diesel with 406 lb ft of torque for performance every bit as powerful as its coupé inspired looks.

Connectiviti+ is a state-of-the-art platform of information and entertainment functions designed to work seamlessly together for maximum user friendliness. The navigation, powered by a 30GB hard disk drive, includes features such as voice recognition, 3D graphics of junctions and points of interest on the high-resolution touch-screen display, and, uniquely, direct access to Michelin’s Green and Red Guides for tourist and hotel/restaurant information.

Entertainment functionality centres on a 10GB Music Box that can store up to 300 CDs, all tracks clearly labelled thanks to the Gracenote® music database integrated into the HDD. Concert hall reproduction is delivered by a Bose® 11-speaker Premium Sound System. Other features that some rival makes charge extra for – such as a USB port, DVD movie playback, Bluetooth for hands-free mobile phone use and audio streaming – are all part of the high-tech package.

The latest Infiniti EX sports crossover is available from 1 June at Infiniti Centres in Reading, Birmingham, Glasgow and at the brand’s London showroom at 77 Piccadilly. Prices, adjusted to reflect the extra equipment, are as follows:

EX30d £37,130
EX30d GT £41,390
EX37 GT £41,930
EX30d GT Premium £45,270
EX37 GT Premium £45,810
Options prices are: metallic paint, £680; aluminium roof rails, £260; electric glass sunroof (standard on GT Premium), £1200; hand-stained Maple Wood interior trim, £320; Connectiviti+ (standard on GT and GT Premium), £1780.
