enough high-tech wizardry to keep a CES attendee occupied for years
Around View Monitor system...uses several cameras to create a bird's-eye view of the SUV's immediate surroundings
Whether you go for the 2010 Infiniti FX35 or FX50, either version comes equipped with pretty much everything you’d expect in a luxury vehicle. The FX50 comes with bigger, showier wheels, but that’s about the only difference. Options are limited to big-ticket tech features like a lane-departure warning system, adaptive suspension, and a navigation system with an especially good display and interface.
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, a safety feature that comes in handy for parking, "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."
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.
ConsumerGuide 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."
There’s no skimping when it comes to features in the 2010 FX35 or FX50. And you can option up to some technological marvels that might make everyday driving safer and more convenient.
