2010 INFINITI FX35 vs. Its Competition

2010 Infiniti FX35
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

With a similar philosophy to the Infiniti FX—a coupelike body with crossover capability—the BMW X6 is also very enjoyable to drive, but it’s far more expensive than the FX, less spacious inside, and less distinctive.

The Audi Q7 is a step in the other direction; it feels a bit more like a traditional SUV, with more rugged ability, though it has a beautiful interior and an available third-row seat.

There’s also a TDI diesel V-6 that delivers great performance along with fuel economy in the low- to mid-20 mpg range.

The Land Rover Range Rover Sport is also worth considering.

The Sport receives a rather thorough redesign for 2010, with a new engine and fully refitted interior; it doesn’t have a particularly roomy interior either, but the Land Rover’s British heritage and hunkered-down boxier look stand as a polar-opposite styling alternative to the curvy, organic shapes in the FX.

The 2010 Infiniti FX35 and FX50 are great choices for those who need a little extra versatility but above all want to look good; those interested in hauling plywood need not apply.
8.8
The 2008 Audi Q7 puts a sport-ute premium on its beautifully made interior, seven-passenger seating, and sedanlike acceleration.

There may not be a better way to pose on road or off than from behind the wheel of a 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
