In javaFX a node has a getBoundsInParent method, which you can call getX and getY on. My group ended up writing an intersects method for nodes using these methods to check if the player car intersected with the enemy car

You can use the getBoundsInParent method, also calling getX and getY with that, to see if it intersects.
