The 2009 Infiniti FX shines in standard and optional features, ranging from DVD navigation systems to satellite radio to Bluetooth to high-tech systems that help the driver move safely and swiftly down the road.
Cars.com notes that in the FX, Infiniti installs many new features, such as "an electronically adaptive suspension, which continually reacts to changing road conditions, is optional on the FX 50. So is Rear Active Steer, which can angle the rear wheels slightly to enhance turning precision.” Steering-wheel paddle shifters are optional, they note.
Autoblog gives kudos to Infiniti’s adaptive cruise control. All you have to do is "set the cruise control at any speed between 1 and 90 mph and the FX keeps a safe (three-second) following distance from the car ahead. It's easy, functional and could turn into a necessity for those of us in traffic-choked urban areas." Autoblog also likes the fact that the Around View Monitor "worked flawlessly during our drive and prevented us from scraping those delicious dubs when trying to fit into a parking space in San Diego's Gas Lamp District."
ConsumerGuideAuto points out other features such as "a 9.3GB hard drive to store digital media files, an advanced climate control system that filters mold and deodorizes air, a voice-activated navigation system with real-time traffic information, DVD entertainment, and a wireless cell-phone link."
TheCarConnection.com has favorite options on the new FX: Infiniti includes features editors love, such as the DVD navigation system and the Around View monitor, but it's the big, blingy 21-inch wheels that set the top versions apart and distinguish the FX Infiniti on the street.
