New for 2012

New for 2012  - 2012 Infiniti FX35 Review - Reviews - Infiniti FX

Always a polarizing design, the FX has changed incrementally, again, for 2012, with a new grille that one of our editors thinks is an improvement. To me, it's a step back. (For a while, Infiniti grilles were always different and interesting from one model to the next. Alas, they're growing similar across the lineup.) Also new for 2012 is the all-wheel-drive FX35 Limited Edition, the version we tested. It introduces Iridium Blue paint Ч a crowd-pleaser Ч and includes 21-inch wheels and supposedly dark-tinted headlights and side vents, though they don't look very dark to me.

Thankfully, the Limited Edition also adds some otherwise optional features to justify Ч or perhaps just explain Ч why it costs $52,000, which is $6,850 more than the base FX35 with optional all-wheel drive: A navigation system, the terrific Around View Monitor, aluminum pedals, floormats with blue piping, and a full roof rack are all included. For 2012, all FX models have white gauge backlighting, replacing the previous generation's orange lights.
