Infiniti launches improved FX

Infiniti has introduced an improved FX which gets subtle exterior styling changes. The new model is on sale now with prices unchanged from before meaning the FX37 costs from £46,750 while the FX30d starts at £46,840.

The bold FX has always stood out from other SUVs so Infiniti hasn't changed the outside too much. At the front there are subtle changes to the grille and a redesigned bumper. GT and GT Premium models get a new five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheel plus there is a new paint colour - Iridium Blue - which is shown on the car pictured above. There is also a new Graphite Shadow colour.

As before there are four trim levels - GT, GT Premium, S and S Premium. The Premium trim is designed to be a luxury trim while the S is more sporty, getting Rear Active Steering (except on the FX37) and continuous damping control. S models also have 21-inch wheels, smoked headlights and red S badging. Premium versions of both the GT and the S come with advanced navigation and entertainment systems, along with a Lane Departure Prevention system.

There are two options - metallic paint priced at £760 and a £2400 Multimedia pack made up of a 30GB HDD navigation system along with a Bose Premium Sound System, although this is standard on Premium models. 

The engine line-up consists of the FX37 which is powered by a V6 petrol producing 320PS. The FX30d makes more sense though with its impressive six-cylinder diesel engine producing 550Nm of torque and capable of a claimed 31.4mpg average. The top model is the FX50 which has a 5.0-litre V8 with 390PS. All models come with an intelligent torque-sensing all-wheel-drive system as well as a seven-speed automatic transmission.
