Strong performance; beautiful exterior design; all-weather ability; comfortable seats; luxurious, well-trimmed interior; high-tech options
The 2013 Infiniti FX37 and FX50 manage to package sport-sedan performance into a crossover utility vehicle package. But what really separates them from the rest of the performance-SUV crowd is that they really look the part, with curvy sheetmetal and an aggressive stance. Both of these models handle far better than most other so-called performance utility vehicles. The other aspect that truly distinguishes the FX models is available technology. Especially on the FX50, a long list of optional items is available that otherwise might only be offered in big sedan flagships such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or BMW 5-Series--including items like lane-departure warning, collision braking and intelligent cruise control.
