Not angry in a "you used Equal instead of Splenda in my soy vanilla latte," but more of a "if you don't give me your chocolate, your money and your first born, I'm going to channel Ghenghis Khan and get 13th century on your ass."

looks cool and aggressive
AutoWeek


For 2012, Infiniti has given the FX a new front-end appearance—with a different look to the grille and headlamps, and a completely resculpted front fascia to blend it all together.

Otherwise, not much has changed since the FX was last redesigned, for 2009. It looks somewhat like a coupe in profile, and that's the intent. But the design is a bit busy in places; as we see it, the 'rippled' headlight and taillight designs are distracting what's an otherwise clean look, and the metallic ducts just behind the front wheels interrupt some nice fender lines.

With its last redesign, the Infiniti FX also became a bit warmer and more sophisticated inside. It's definitely rich and elegant, but with the lack of an all-encompassing interface like iDrive or MMI it's also undeniably more cluttered compared to other vehicles in this class (something many will be happy to live with).

 

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Infiniti FX models have a racy profile and aggressive road presence, but it's a bit cluttered in the details.

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.
