Safety  - 2012 Infiniti FX35 Review - Reviews - Infiniti FX

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports its highest rating, Good, for the FX in a frontal crash test, but it hasn't tested it for side impact or roof strength. The FX hasn't been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In addition to frontal and front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags, the FX has curtain airbags to protect front and rear occupants in a side impact. The front seats have active head restraints. As is required of all new vehicles beginning with the 2012 model year, the FX has standard antilock brakes and an electronic stability system with traction control. See all the standard safety features here.

Active-safety options include precrash seat belts, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and prevention, and adaptive headlights.
