Expert Quotes:

[FX50] rides so stiff-leggedly that it threatens to shake loose the fillings in your teeth
Car and Driver

The sport mode...just seemed to make the ride harder without helping the handling
AutoWeek

The more you want to haul, the less the FX seems like a logical choice.
Orlando Sentinel



For the primary passengers, the Infiniti FX is a swell place to pass long road trips. If you're in back, here's hoping your genetic lottery ticket drew all small numbers.

The FX's strong, sporting slant does great things for its sense of style and for its handling, relative to other crossovers. What it doesn't provide is lots of spread-out space, the kind you can easily obtain in leather-lined appliances priced much lower. It's sporty-car snug in places, though in front the FX37 and FX50 have firm, enveloping seats with a fair range of adjustability and with heating and cooling in most versions. They're great for a long day of driving, and the seating position itself is low enough to ease entry and exit.

The FX shorts itself in the back seat. They're tough to get into, with the arch of the roofline getting in the way. There's just enough head room for medium-sized adults--a pair of them, not more--but leg room is skimpy. Folding the seats forward yields more cargo space, but the bin's small to begin with, and the cargo floor is high. The standard power liftgate does soothe the sting of not being able to cart home half the big-box store. 

Delicate details are the surprise inside the FX, akin to those used in luxury sedans, not SUVs. The leather is soft and quilted with subtly colored stitching, and the assembly quality of almost every version we've driven has been excellent. The paint finish? Orange peel describes an uneven look in the painted surfaces, and some dark colors on the FX show plenty of rind.

 

Conclusion

Skimpy back-seat space and a shallow cargo bin undercut the appeal of the FX's snug-fitting front seats.

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.
