Carlike Handling  - 2012 Infiniti FX35 Review - Reviews - Infiniti FX

As always, the FX handles well, in league with the likes of BMW's X5 and Porsche's Cayenne specifically the X5 xDrive35i and the base Cayenne, if you're comparing price and powertrains. These competitors also have rear-wheel drive or rear-biased all-wheel drive for a sporty feel. Though the FX's ride quality has been smoothed out somewhat over the years, our test model's 21-inch wheels appropriately evoked the model's salad days, as we found ourselves tossed about like hapless romaine.

Slight differences in tire series aren't always dramatic, but you can expect a more compliant ride with the FX's base 18-inch wheels. Unfortunately, an adaptive suspension is available only on the FX50, as an option.
