A well-designed interior
Edmunds

After more than five years on the market, the 2008 Infiniti FX still stands out in a crowded field for its style. J.D. Power writes, "Infiniti's 'bionic cheetah' styling has aged well and still looks just as fresh -- and odd -- today as it did when it first debuted." Edmunds says it’s a surprise the concept-car shape ever was built; “with its sports car muscles and hulking linebacker stance, the slick Infiniti FX45 set a new standard for automotive design.” Automedia reports, “We rather like the FX45's radically curved roofline, raked windscreen and thin C-pillar.”

"The 2008 Infiniti FX carries over with no major changes," notes ConsumerGuide; 2008 Infiniti FXs do get new exterior colors. A Sport Package with distinctive exterior add-ons is available for the Infiniti FX; 2008 Sport models gain "20-inch wheels, aluminum interior trim and a dark chrome grill," according to Edmunds. Kelley Blue Book adds, "Standard wheels on the FX35 models are 18-inch aluminum alloy, with 20-inch wheels standard on the FX45."

Distinction defines the interior, too. Edmunds calls it "well-designed," though they also say the Infiniti FX 2008 cabin "doesn't feel as upscale as warm as some others." Gripping a "thick, meaty steering wheel," writes J.D. Power of the 2008 Infiniti FX, "the driver sits forward in the passenger cabin close to the front glass and facing a shallow dashboard that puts all controls at the driver's fingertips." Automedia observes, “real aluminum trim and drilled pedals signal serious sports car better than any shiny veneer would have.” Infiniti FX 2008s get new interior colors, too. "The FX's optional Brick or Espresso leather interiors offer a welcome respite from the usual black, tan and gray," notes Kelley Blue Book.

Conclusion

The 2008 Infiniti FX offers discerning buyers a distinctive shape, proportions, and interior style that hint at its sporting pretensions.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
