2011 INFINITI FX vs. Its Competition

Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The BMW X6, with its performance intentions and coupe-lie body, is a natural rival to the Infiniti FX but costs significantly more and is even smaller inside.

Swinging the other direction is the Audi Q7, a more traditional take on the SUV that blends family-friendly space (including third-row seating) with more rugged driving characteristics and capabilities.

The Audi is also available with an optional TDI powerplant for fuel economy and torque.

Also worth considering is the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, which received a thorough redesign in 2010: a new engine, refitted interior, and more off-road capability than most need is wrapped in Land Rover's stereotypical boxy shape.

Quick Specs
8.2
The 2011 Infiniti FX35 and FX50 put the priority on looks and performance, and it's no secret that a little utility gets sacrificed in the process.
8.6
With a diesel option and a softer silhouette, the 2011 Audi Q7 does its part to tame the SUV bad-boy image.
8.2
The novelty of the four-door coupe/SUV is wearing off, but the X6's combination of utility and composed driving style still pleases.
7.8
The 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers impressive performance and features, whether on-road or off.
