The side vents are very unecessary.

I think it will be nicer in person.

My first impression is that I don't really like it but the more I see it, the more I get it.

Headlights are random too. I hate designs that look like a mix and match of different components. Every line on the car should be there for a reason and there definately needs to be flow within the design.

I really don't get what's going on with Infiniti's design team.

Alone, this car is nice, but when compared to the last gen it looks bloated, too round and curvy...

SAME exact thing goes for the new G37.

I don't get it?!??!?! The older infiniti models are soooo sleek and classy compared to these cars.... what gives???

I think it's fugly as balls...to be nice that is. Nothing works. Nothing. It's a big ol mish mash is what it is.

Nissan also dropped the ball with the updated Murano.

They're trying to incorporate more flash. It's not working.

Oh thanks op for the info.....My sis was closing it down to the new 09 Infiniti FX37 and the upcoming 09 Lexus RX350. For some reason, she only wants a CUV. X6 will be out of the budget(Above 50k)

Anyway, I am favouring FX because of it's superior handling and sporty looks but, its upto her though. Won't take a car without a test drive.

+1 on the Murano. I was expecting more from it. It didnt look so great with the stupid grille and weird window shapes, but Nissan could have given it more aggressive styling and get rid of the weird details and bland look. Instead they made it look weirder and just as bland.
