The 3.0L diesel is the most economical Infiniti FX to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.
The Infiniti FX 3.0L diesel costs £555.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band L.
It does just over 31 MPG on average, which means it will cost £19.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.
The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 47, which is lower than the Range Rover Sport 3.0L diesel, but higher than the Audi Q7 3.0L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Hyundai Santa Fe has the lowest insurance group.)

The Infiniti FX has a below average boot space (410 litres of luggage with the seats up).
This would allow one pushchair and 2 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 3 large bags or 3 cabin bags instead.
Worth knowing, the Land Rover Discovery SUV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 6 large bags with its 889 litres.
While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the Mitsubishi Shogun), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill just over three quarters of the space.
This car is actually 65mm longer than the average street space, so parallel parking will never be easy.
The fastest Infiniti FX from 0-60, is the 3.0L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 550 lbs/ft torque and 238 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 8.3 seconds.
The closest rival in its class is the BMW X5 2.0L diesel, which will beat your Infiniti FX to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.
The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Infiniti FX 3.0L diesel which has 550 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 2200kg comfortably.
You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
