- Service & Repair
The five-seat Infiniti FX is a luxury crossover that emphasizes sportiness over utility. It is sold as the V-6-powered FX37 and as the V-8-powered FX50, covered in a separate report in the Cars.com Research section. It competes with a number of luxury crossovers, from the Lexus RX 350 to the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and BMW X5. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the FX37, and all-wheel drive is optional.
New for 2013
The FX's previous 303-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 makes way for a 325-hp, 3.7-liter V-6. With the new engine, the model name changes to FX37 from FX35. The Limited Edition model is available in Moonlight White with Graphite interior color.
The FX's beady headlights and rakish shape are at least as controversial as those elements on its predecessor, if not more so. Along the side, functional air vents reduce the FX's lift, Infiniti says. Exterior features include:
The cabin has a high dashboard, and a ledge just below the windshield curls around to the window sills. Air-conditioning and stereo controls sit below an available navigation display in the center control panel. The leather seats are available with quilted center inserts. Power adjustments for the front seats are standard. Interior features include:
Under the Hood
The FX37's new 3.7-liter V-6 makes 325 hp and teams with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:
The optional Around View Monitor camera system adds moving-object detection capability. Standard safety features include active front head restraints, side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows. Traction control, an electronic stability system and four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are also standard. Safety features include:
