3/4 Front Glamour 2013 Infiniti FX50

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

Crossovers blend SUV-like utility with car-like performance, but not always in equal measure. The Infiniti FX50, for instance, happily minimizes practicality to maximize thrills. With its firm suspension and 390-horsepower 5-liter V8, the FX is a stellar performer that competes with the likes of the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X6.

The standard all-wheel drive system is biased toward the rear wheels for enhanced high-speed corning. Rear-seat and cargo room probably aren't as generous as you might expect in a crossover, but the interior is luxuriously trimmed and loaded with technological conveniences.

Infiniti redesigned the FX45 in 2009 and renamed it the FX50. Power now came from a 5-liter V8 making 390 horsepower. A new seven-speed transmission was added, as was the All-Around View Monitor System that allows the driver a bird's-eye view around the vehicle. A minor facelift came in 2012, and included exterior upgrades -- most of which were in the front fascia.
