Plush and refined encapsulate the inside of the 2011 Infiniti FX35. Power leather front seats, a reclining rear seat, dual-zone climate control, and optional heated/cooled front seats give the FX35 a luxurious feel.

Immediately setting the 2011 Infiniti apart from the competition is its unique exterior styling, which exhibits a long, slender hood, bi-xenon headlights and functional side air vents. The FX35 sits atop standard 18-inch alloy wheels, while 20-inchers are optional. One key addition for 2011 is a power liftgate, which will become standard later in the year.
The FX's beady headlights and snout-nosed grille are at least as controversial as those elements on its predecessor if not more so. Along the side, functional air vents reduce the FX's lift, Infiniti says. With rear-wheel drive, the FX35's front/rear weight distribution is 52/48. Exterior features include:
*Standard bi-xenon headlights
*Standard 18-inch alloy wheels
*Available 20-inch alloy wheels
The 2011 FX35 is no dud with a capable 303-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual mode. Available in standard rear-wheel-drive or optional all-wheel-drive configurations, the FX35 receives 16 mpg in the city and between 21-23 mpg on the highway. For those who need to carry a bit more when they venture into the wilderness, the all-wheel-drive version is rated to tow up to 2,000 pounds. The 2011 faces stiff competition from the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Lexus RX 350 in the midsize luxury SUV segment.
Under the Hood
The FX35's 3.5-liter V-6 makes 303 hp and teams with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:

The 2011 Infiniti FX35 is equipped with a suite of optional safety technologies, including an around-view monitor system, which utilizes several cameras for a bird's-eye view of the SUV's perimeter, and a lane departure prevention system.

Adaptive cruise control and a forward-warning system, which applies the brakes in the event of an impending collision, are optional. Active head restraints, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side-curtain airbags for both rows, traction control, an electronic stability system, and four-wheel antilock disc brakes come standard.
