2013 Infiniti JX35 Test Drive & Luxury Crossover Review Video
http://www.autobytel.com/infiniti/jx35/2013/ The 2013 Infiniti JX35 is an all-new crossover vehicle built on the Nissan Murano platform. Infiniti currently has a couple of great 5-passenger luxury vehicles like the FX and EX. If you are looking for a 7-passenger luxury vehicle, then the QX56 was your only choice. But that full sized SUV is pretty expensive. The Infiniti JX35 fills the need for a reasonably priced 7-passenger vehicle. The base price on the JX35 is $40,450.
Under the hood the 2013 Infiniti JX35 is powered by a 3.5 liter V-6 engine. This is the same engine that powers the Nissan Altima and Maxima. Power output is 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft. of torque. The JX35 is a front wheel drive crossover with a CVT transmission. The Infiniti JX35 with FWD gets 18 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway which is very respectable for a 7-passenger luxury crossover.
Infiniti really focused on the amount of seating space in both the 2nd and 3rd rows. What's really innovative is not just the amount of room but how easy it is to access the 3rd row seating area. The seats fold and slide with a simple button and push of the hand. The inside of the Infiniti JX35 is all about luxury and comfort. The maple word trim gives a warm and natural feel. Many of the surfaces are wrapped in beautiful leather. The 2nd and 3rd rows can be folded flat to provide a ton of storage space. There is also a cargo bin built into the floor for extra space. The 2 panoramic moonroofs offer an outstanding view of the sky above for the rear occupants.
Technology wise the 2013 Infiniti JX35 sports the latest advancements including the revolutionary Back-up Collision Intervention system. If you are backing up and a small child, car, or anything else gets in the way; the system will first alert the driver then stop the vehicle if necessary. There are a couple of sensors located at the rear of the vehicle that provide a 180 degree will sense of the surrounding area. The JX35 comes packed with tons of features and options. This is the perfect choice for those looking for a 7-passenger luxury vehicle.
