Infiniti FX45

The growing Crossover market has increased the number of vehicles in this segment, but the Infiniti FX45 bested them all with a #1 showing regardless of whether annual mileage was on the low side or the high side. The second place spot made this a family affair, with the similar FX35 performing nearly as well as its pricier sibling.
