2009 Infiniti FX50: Sexy Beast

June 08, 2009

I know a lot of folks aren't really that into the looks of our FX. It's got big ol' wagon wheel sized rims, a funky face reminiscent of a catfish, bad visibility and terrible gas mileage. But I think for a lot of folks that's the point.

Well, maybe not for the terrible gas mileage, but the power and grunt you get out of that engine is worth it. That's is if you don't mind paying for it. I know I greatly appreciated it for the old Interstate 110 full stop highway entrances when there is a lot of fast moving traffic. An open space, a mash of the pedal and this thing roars to life.

It's luxury interior appointments let you know you're riding in style. You think it's got an ugly face? The Susan Boyle of the automotive world? It doesn't look like much else out there and that's a good thing in the Civic, Prius, and Camry crowded highways of Los Angeles.

I'm giving our FX50 two big thumbs up. Yay! for fuggly!
