2010 Infiniti FX35 Safety

9.0
Safety

The 2010 Infiniti FX hasn’t been crash-tested by the federal government, and it likely won’t be, but the insurance-funded IIHS has awarded the FX35 and FX50 scores of "good" for frontal offset and "good" in the seat-based rear-impact test.

In addition, the FX35 and FX50 have all the safety features that buyers of this type of vehicle should expect: standard front side airbags, side-curtain bags that protect outboard front and rear passengers, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability control.

Although the crash-test data isn’t complete for the 2010 Infiniti FX, a full feature set and some advanced safety-minded options suggest that it’s a good choice for the safety-minded who’d rather avoid an accident in the first place.

Plus, there are a few more high-tech options that might help avoid an accident in the first place. Cars.com says that the 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."

Visibility is an issue, but Motor Trend points to the optional Around View Monitor, “which shows an overhead view of the vehicle” and alerts the driver to obstacles all around the perimeter of the vehicle.
