2011 Infiniti FX35 Styling

8.0
On Styling
The 2010 Infiniti FX might look like a coupe; that's the intent. Unlike other vehicles of this size and relative shape, the FX is geared toward sport-sedan buyers—those who want great overall performance and handling, not off-road ability or an optimized space for changing diapers. The high-utility wagonlike profile is there; it's just not the priority in this design.

Last redesigned for 2009, the FX inherited an even more aggressive form, with a lower front grille, plus a few more styling details to the exterior—including rippled headlight and taillight designs and metallic ducts just behind the front wheels. Along with the even more aggressive shape and a lower front grille, Infiniti added quite a few styling details to the exterior—including rippled headlight and taillight designs and metallic ducts just behind the front wheels.

Inside, too, although the design of the new Infiniti FX feels warmer and more sophisticated than the previous version, it's also undeniably more cluttered. The sheer busyness of the design might bother some—with too many curves and cues that are shared with the Nissan Cube MPV—though otherwise it feels rich and elegant.

The 2011 Infiniti FX has a sexy shape and an aggressive road presence, but its collection of details can lead some to assess it as cluttered.
