This car has all the technology and luxury that you want from a vehicle. It is also so much fun to drive, it handles like a sport sedan, but also has the comfort of an SUV.
The interior is so comfortable and everything is conveniently located. The exterior look is polarizing, but there are many people who like it because of its bold looks. The paint is one of the best in the industry and the chrome grill and door handles complement it nicely.
I would definitely recommend getting the smaller 18" wheels. The 19"+ or 21" wheels on FX50S look great from outside, but due to the harsh ride, you might not like it after driving for a couple of months. The 18" wheels provide superior comfort and sportiness at the same time. I live in Midwest with bad roads and with the smaller wheels, I do not feel any discomfort at all, the ride is very smooth.
Cargo space is limited, so if you have kids or carry a lot of stuff daily, then you might want to consider a bigger, less sportier SUV. However if you are a couple, then you will probably find ample space in the back like me, especially with the reclining seats. You will also like the hatch tent option if you go camping a lot.
I found this car to be much more fun to drive and luxurious than BMW X3 or X5. Most people including me also like it much more than the Audi Q5. Interior luxury is as good as the Mercedes M/GLK Class if not better and it is sportier than those models. The only car I drove which is better is Cayenne S, but keep in mind that it is a bigger car, and costs much more than FX35/50 when similar options are added. Also most people agree that Infiniti's reliability is better than Audi, Porsche, or BMW. Costs aside, it will take you time to go to the mechanic.
Overall, if you can get through the polarizing exterior looks, you will love the interior quality and sporty driving of this car. If you are not a sporty driver and prefer more cargo space and smoother ride, you should check the Lexus or Mercedes.
