2010 Infiniti FX35 Review

Stunning styling and great performance but short on space for humans and cargo

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Infiniti FX35 is a luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV) known for great performance and gorgeous styling but doesn't quite have the room you'd want for cargo or a crowd. Offered with a DOHC V-6 3.5-liter engine with 300 horsepower married to a seven-speed automatic transmission with downshift rev-matching, the Infiniti FX35 has all-wheel drive, speed-sensitive power steering, a front control arm/rear multilink suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes.

Offering high style and speed, the FX35 is an attractive SUV with gracious exterior curves and sports eighteen-, twenty-, or twenty-one-inch alloy wheels. While the FX35 features an impressive power train and excellent driving ability, it has only 34.6-inches of legroom in the rear and 32 cubic-feet of cargo space. FX35 offers a technologically-sophisticated array of safety systems but only gets 16 mpg city / 21 mpg highway in EPA-rated fuel economy

New for 2010

Having been redesigned the year before, the 2010 Infiniti FX35 received only minor updates, including standard Bluetooth hands-free phone as well as USB/iPod connectivity. For FX35s without navigation, a 2GB music hard drive is part of the Bose premium audio system, while the FX35s with navigation have Bluetooth streaming audio, XM NavWeather, and the Zagat restaurant guide.

On the Outside

With optional 21-inch Enkei wheels, flared fenders, and dark chrome grille, the Infiniti FX35 is a bold, aggressive beauty that fuses "power and grace."

From the Inside

The Infiniti FX35 boasts an upscale interior with standard leather seats, Bluetooth phone capability, intelligent key, and a 300-watt Bose sound system with satellite radio. The Around View Monitor is a must-have option.

Driving Performance

The 2010 Infiniti FX35 is powered by a 3.5-liter 24-valve V-6 engine that churns out 303 horsepower coupled to a standard seven-speed automatic transmission with optional magnesium paddle shifters. The FX35 handles and brakes exceptionally well for a sizeable SUV, thanks to a sport-tuned four-wheel independent suspension and four-wheel vented disc brakes.

Standard safety features on the Infiniti FX35 includes dual front, front side, and side curtain airbags as well as stability and traction control. Options include intelligent brake assist with forward collision warning, and lane departure prevention and warning.
