The 2013 Infiniti FX37 is a luxurious crossover meant to compete with the likes of the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz M-class. We were surprised with this car all around. It looked great and drove even better. Here is our main man Bucky's words on the 2013 Infiniti FX37.

How did you feel about the exterior of the car?
-Overall, I was pleased about the outside of this car. It had very fluid lines all around. The only thing I found unattractive about this car, was the fact that it looked like a squished SUV.
How did you feel about the interior of the car?
-Geez, what a comfortable interior. Every time we get an Infiniti, I know I am in for a great cabin. While the buttons on the wheel were a bit much, the functionality of the interior was great. The seats formed to me thanks to the adjustable seats and comfortable padding. I felt like I could drive for hours and feel like I was on my recliner at home.
What was your favorite part about driving the car?
-The giddy-up in this car was there. I wasn't expecting a great amount of pickup with the heavy weight of this car and the lower power output, but when I stepped on it, it went. And of course, the ride was as smooth as ever. The body-roll was noticeable around corners, as is expected with most crossovers, but some just tend to mask it than others.
Did it have enough power?
-The power was there from the get-go, however I felt like it would top-out after a little while. While I liked its performance, I could definitely see them adding more power to the engine, thus making a much better car. All I'm saying is that there could be more power.
What was your least favorite aspect of the car?
-I wasn't too pleased with its exterior. Like I said, it seemed squished. And the fascia looked to be a forgotten entity on the car when they were designing it.
How much would you price this car at?
-$45,000. This is actually the base price of the car, and with $10,000 of options added into the car, I would say the $45,000 is still appropriate.
If you have the money and were looking for a car in this class, would you buy it? If not, which car would you buy?
-You know, I wouldn't mind owning this car. Even though it competes with the likes of Mercedes-Benz and BMW, I have always enjoyed my time in Infinitis.
