The Infiniti FX is no staid, family-oriented luxury SUV. It’s mean, outrageous, curvaceous and available with a pair of stout engines. While other SUVs are based on sedans, trucks and even minivans, the FX can trace its lineage back to a sports car: Nissan’s Z.
Indeed, through its two generations, the FX has been a different sort of sport-utility: one that puts an unmistakable emphasis on “sport,” while “utility” is a mere bonus. Passenger and cargo room have never been what we call generous, so if hauling the kids to hockey practice is a priority, something else may be in order. As such, it’s certainly not for everyone. But for those who like the idea of a sport sedan on stilts and are attracted to its one-of-a-kind styling, the Infiniti FX has carved out a cool little niche of its own.
