Used Car: 2013 Infiniti FX Review
The 2013 Infiniti FX is powerful and athletic, but has a small back seat and cargo area, according to critics.
The 2013 Infiniti FX comes in two trims: the base FX37, which has a V6 engine, and the FX50, which has a V8. Reviewers said that both engines have ample power. Both the FX37 and FX50 have an automatic transmission. The FX37 has standard rear-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is available on the FX37 and standard on the FX50. A base Infiniti FX37 gets 17/24 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. Test drivers were impressed with the 2013 FX’s nimble handling, which they said makes it fun to drive. However, they noted that the ride on the FX can be a bit harsh, so it may not be the best choice if you’re looking for a comfort-oriented SUV.
Tester drivers praised the 2013 Infiniti FX for its well-designed and upscale cabin. They appreciated the luxurious materials and reported that the front seats are comfortable and supportive. However, they said that the FX’s sloping roofline makes the back seat feel tight, and there is limited cargo space for the class. Standard features in the 2013 FX include a rearview camera, Bluetooth, an 11-speaker Bose audio system and a USB port and iPod integration. Navigation, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors and Infiniti’s Around View camera system, which uses multiple cameras to give the driver a 360-degree view of the area around the SUV, were optional when the FX was new. Auto journalists appreciated that most navigation and audio systems are easy to operate.
Other SUVs to Consider
The 2013 Porsche Cayenne also delivers sporty performance, according to reviewers, with ample power and agile handling, no matter the trim. Unlike the FX, the Cayenne’s back seat isn’t criticized for being cramped.
Reviewers loved the 2013 Lexus RX’s hushed and luxurious interior, as well as its smooth ride. The RX gets better fuel economy than the FX, and it has quite a bit more cargo space as well.
