For The Infiniti FX is fearsome to look at and the powerful engines mean there’s plenty of pace to play with.
Against You face big fuel bills whichever engine you choose, and the cabin is neither big enough nor classy enough. This is a pricey car to buy, too.
What Car? says
An interesting prospect for maverick 4x4 buyers, but the huge costs involved make the Infiniti FX prohibitively expensive to buy and run.

Buying an Infiniti FX should be hassle-free. You spec your car on a screen in the dealership over a cup of coffee, and you’re assigned your own ‘Account Manager’ who looks after all your needs, whether it’s buying, servicing or selling on.
As to which FX to pick, we recommend the entry-level diesel-engined 30d GT. It’s still plenty quick enough and comes with an extensive kit list, including heated and ventilated electric leather seats, privacy glass, an automatic gearbox, electric sunroof, all-singing multimedia system and 20-inch alloys. You also get self-repairing paint.
Upgrading to the S adds adaptive damping and 21-inch alloys, but the wheels make the ride and road noise worse than on the GT.
Choosing the FX50S gives you the fire-breathing V8 engine and adds rear active steer, intelligent cruise control and an upgraded multimedia system to the standard kit. It’s much pricier to buy, though, and running costs will be higher still.
