Test Drive Review Infiniti FX35 AWD

WOW!  What an absolutely fun car to drive.  When sitting in the roomy drivers seat the front fender bulge gives you the impression of sitting in the cockpit of a sleek fighter jet.  The performance of the car doesn’t disappoint.  To goes like a rocket ship, corners like a race car and handles like a dream.

The coupe-like styling makes it seem like you’re not driving an crossover SUV at all.  The interior has all the high tech features you will ever need.  The XM radio intergrates with the navigation system on an huge color graphic screen.  I don’t think anyone could possibly learn to master all the high tech gizmo’s this car offers.

The dealership offered what seemed to be a excellent maintenance facility any needed repairs – which included free pickup and loaner car service for as long as you owned the car.

I basically fell in love while driving this car but not so fast.  The FX looks good but its sort of like seeing the picture of a beautiful Ukrainian girl on an agency web page; those looks get your heart racing , but they aren’t a firm foundation for a long-term family relationship.

The car has virtually zero passenger space in the back seat.  The cargo space is also a bit small even when the back seats are folded down to expand the space.  The high performance is because of a sporty suspension which I found a bit rough on regular freeway driving.  They only offer it in 7 colors; 5 of which are shades of black or grey.

The starting offering price including the “premium option package” was $49,350 with $2000 rebate or 0% financing for 60 months.

As much as my heart “loved” driving this car, my practical brain will probably give it a pass.  But I’d encourage anyone looking for a sporty luxury car to give one a test drive.  It was a wonderful experience.
