Sporty design; performance and handling; available technology features.
The 2008 Infiniti FX is a stylish, performance-oriented crossover SUV with a little bit of sports car influence. It's available with either V6 or V8 power, and emphasizes on-road handling versus off-road ability. With either engine, the FX is quicker than most other performance SUVs in its class and has a nearly ideal weight balance for safe, quick maneuvers. The FX also stands out from the competition by offering several unique technology and safety features such as the available lane departure warning system and intelligent cruise control with preview braking.
