2013 Infiniti FX37
Average selling price: $43,390
The FX37 is Infiniti's way of bidding farewell to its underpowered FX35 by dropping in a 3.7-liter V6 engine with 325 horsepower.
The good news is that the FX37 has all the brawn and toys buyers would expect from a luxury SUV. The bad news is that parent company Honda sacrificed space in its tiny rear seat and its cargo capacity to make that happen. Even with the seats folded down, the FX37 has only 62 cubic feet of cargo space, the smallest capacity on this list.That said, you're getting a lot if you're not looking to lug around kids or camping equipment. As luxury SUVs go, this one's relatively cheap compared with competitors such as the Porsche Cayenne or BMW X6. For under 50 grand, buyers get automatic xenon headlights, fog lights, a sunroof, power-folding heated outside mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated eight-way power front seats and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. It's also packed with standard electronics including a back-up camera, Bluetooth and an 11-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system with a six-CD changer, an iPod/USB connection, an auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio. Even the V6 gets from zero to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, which should help performance-minded drivers forgive its dreadful 18.8 combined miles per gallon.
