The original Infiniti FX explored the boundaries of sportiness in a crossover, though not without some drawbacks in utility. It is sold as an FX35 and FX50 model. A 303-horsepower V-6 powers the five-seat FX35, while a 390-hp V-8 powers the FX50, which is covered in a separate report in the Cars.com Research section. A number of luxury crossovers, from the Lexus RX 350 to the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, compete with the FX. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the FX35, and all-wheel drive is optional.
