FX in the Market

FX in the Market  - 2009 Infiniti FX35 Review - Reviews - Infiniti FX

Even at a price tag of nearly $50,000 for a well-equipped model, I see the FX competing with both the BMW X6 and any number of midsize luxury sedans on the market. The winning attribute is its in-your-face looks, and no BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class or even Infiniti M sedan looks as bold.

That's also what you have to remember when considering the FX. This isn't a true SUV in terms of cargo capacity. SUV competitors like the BMW X5, Acura MDX and Audi Q7 offer much more room for a similar price.

It's intriguing that there can be such subtle variations in a segment where every vehicle may appear to be pretty much the same. The FX certainly fills a very small need in that segment, and its look will be what attracts shoppers.
