The Infiniti FX luxury crossover vehicle has been hailed as the car of the year by Saudi Auto's panel of experts.
Infiniti excelled in all assessment criteria, with a strong performance in categories including design, comfort, safety, handling, performance, innovation, driver satisfaction and value for money.
"This is a strong validation from an expert audience for our new second generation Infiniti FX model which we launched across the region in summer 2008," commented Abhijeet Pandit, general manager of Infiniti Business Unit Middle East.
He added that regional residents have become very familiar with the model since its launch in 2005, with the FX continuing to grow in popularity.
Bakur Azher, publisher and editor-in-chief of Saudi Auto, added that with its technological features and focus on innovation, the 2009 model is likely to take this popularity to new heights.
Key features of this year's model include advance climate control and an intelligent all-wheel drive.
