The 2009 Infiniti FX has an extensive array of standard safety gear and some leading-edge safety options. As yet, though, the federal government and private insurance industry groups have not crash tested the new SUV.
ConsumerGuideAuto states, "available safety features include anti-lock brakes, traction control, antiskid system, curtain side airbags, and front side airbags." Cars.com reports that "standard safety features include active head restraints, side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows. Traction control, an electronic stability system and four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are also standard."
Cars.com says high-tech options such as Lane Departure Prevention "can scan the road for lane markings and, should the FX Infiniti drift too close, apply light brakes to keep it in its lane." But what's really great is the FX's "advanced cruise control system can bring the vehicle to a complete stop in bumper-to-bumper traffic." The Around View monitor is also an option, as is adaptive cruise control, which allows drivers to program their vehicle to remain a set distance behind cars ahead in the lane.
