The M35X was the next generation of the M35 model, and it toned down the styling a tad bit. But underneath the sheet metal was still a performance sedan that could hold its own. The engine was still a powerful V8 offering with plenty of torque and off-the-line power. The interior was also well appointed and offered a lot of comfort for the driver (via KSport USA).
Even with a comprehensive redesign, the M35x couldn’t seem to tap the same market share as Lexus did. The M35x is still a well-appointed luxury car that offers a lot for the price. You won’t find many luxury cars that perform this well, even by today’s standards. Not to mention the fact that the M35x is one of the most reliable used luxury cars on the road.
