2012 Infiniti FX35 Styling

8.0
Styling

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.

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

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).
