Infiniti FX50 Test-Drive
Тест-драйв Инфинити FX50 у дилера.
Т.к. меня задолбали однотипные комментарии в адрес меня и моих друзей - типа, все мы олени и хороших машин не видели, поясняю:
1. Машину выбирали для девушки, для зимней езды.
2. Мужик за рулем ездит на SRT8, видео с ним и его машиной есть на моем канале.
3. FX50 - не спорткар, даже близко, потому оценивались не только динамические характеристики, но и комфорт.
4. Девушка-менеджер ответила на все интересующие нас впоросы и была вполне компетентна.

2012 Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel Version (2011 Frankfurt Auto Show)
INFINITI FX SEBASTIAN VETTEL VERSION: THE CROSSOVER FIT FOR A CHAMPION
Just six months after the idea first surfaced, the Infiniti FX designed for reigning Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel is unveiled today at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. What began as a chat between the Red Bull Racing driver and Infiniti's Chief Creative Officer, Shiro Nakamura, at the Geneva Show in March is revealed, in concept form, as Infiniti's fastest car yet and, probably, the most exclusive crossover ever made.
With its sophisticated technology, lightweight components and features such as Rear Active Steering for maximum agility, the V8 FX50S Premium -- Infiniti's flagship as well as its best-selling model in some markets -- provides the ideal starting point for the FX Sebastian Vettel version. Changes including increased power, lower weight, derestricted top speed, longer gearing, increased downforce and lowered and stiffer suspension turn what is already a sports car among crossovers into a crossover supercar - the 300km/h reality of the World Champion's vision.
Infiniti's Corporate Vice President Toru Saito said: "The FX Sebastian Vettel version is unique and very much Sebastian's car. But at the same time it is a concept car for Infiniti globally."
Sebastian Vettel, 2010 Formula One World Champion and Infiniti Global Brand Ambassador
"I have been driving an FX all this year and it is a car I love. It fits my lifestyle perfectly and is great fun to drive. But of course, it could go a little faster...
"I drive a lot in Germany on motorways that have no speed limits and have enjoyed my FX around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driving at high speed where safe and legal is part of my life. As well as a higher top speed I wanted even better stability in my FX, and that meant work on the aerodynamics. It is a tribute to the excellence of the standard FX that achieving all my targets required so few changes.
"This is the first road car I have helped develop. Usually I have hundreds of engineers building one car just for me. So it is fantastic for me to contribute to the design of a car. The result is an Infiniti I am very proud to have my name on. It is all I hoped for: 300km/h, plenty of downforce -- and I can still fit my mountain bike in the back. Plus it is totally exclusive -- and as an Infiniti driver, that's important."
2013 Infiniti JX35 3rd Row Comparison -vs- Audi Q7 & Acura MDX
The all-new 2013 Infiniti JX35 is here and we are very excited for this absolutely amazing luxury 7 Passenger SUV. One of our Sales Managers (Adam Goldstein) decided to record a hands on comparison on getting into and out of the JX35 verses the Acura MDX and the Audi Q7.

2013 Infiniti JX35: At a Glance
The all-new Infiniti JX is about to shake up the status quo when the innovative 7-passenger/3-row luxury crossover joins the Infiniti lineup in spring 2012 as a 2013 model. As a fresh, bold alternative to the many flavors of vanilla currently dominating the luxury crossover segment, the Infiniti JX is designed to excel in the areas that luxury crossover buyers desire most -- interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and advanced hospitality features. The JX offers real 3-row utility, plus all the premium features, performance and innovations that Infiniti has become known for worldwide.
The new JX also offers a vibrant symphony of both luxury and style, highlighted by the new Infiniti design language direction that initiated with the Essence concept -- as well as a suite of personal luxury accommodations.
Along with its standout styling and craftsmanship, the breakthrough JX design offers excellent legroom in all three rows and ample cargo room behind the 3rd row. In addition, an innovative multi-mode middle seat design provides entry to the 3rd row without removing a 2nd row child seat.
The JX also continues Infiniti's tradition of developing world's first technologies, adding a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention (BCI), to the currently available Blind Spot Intervention™ (BSI) system. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX will help the driver detect crossing vehicles and objects behind the JX and, if necessary, the system can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.
Among the other advanced standard or available technology found throughout the new JX are Infiniti ConnectionTM with Google CalendarTM, Drive Zone/Speed Alert and Infiniti Personal Assistant; Around View™ Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD); Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP); Blind Spot Intervention™ (BSI) system; Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range); Distance Control Assist (DCA); Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW); Active Trace Control; Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts; and a Bose® Cabin Surround® 15-speaker sound system with digital 5.1-channel decoding and new Acoustic Waveguide subwoofer.
The JX's interior design mirrors the seductive style of the exterior. Key design features include the signature driver-oriented cockpit, finishers and satin pieces offering similar shapes and section, thin chrome accents, and an interior color palette that provides an elegant color harmony -- Wheat, Graphite or Java leather appointments with Kasane Washi or available Maple accents.
Offered in both front-wheel drive and with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, the JX addresses the growing desire among luxury crossover drivers to have both responsive performance and good fuel efficiency. The standard 3.5-liter DOHC V6 is mated to a sport-tuned Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to provide high responsiveness and seamless, efficient shifting feel.
The JX is the first Infiniti to utilize a fuel-efficient CVT. The CVT can mimic a step transmission when the Sport mode of the Infiniti drive selector is engaged. The CVT design also features a wide gear ratio and low friction design.
The engine is rated at 265 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm and 248 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm. The design includes a variable induction control system to improve volumetric efficiency at low and middle speed ranges, while a simplified belt layout (versus previous designs) improves maintenance and fuel economy.
Fuel economy is expected to be rated at 23 mpg Highway, 17 mpg City and a real-world 19 mpg Combined -- while still offering the power to carry a full load or passengers and cargo.
The 2013 JX is offered in two fully equipped models -- Infiniti JX35 FWD and Infiniti JX35 AWD -- and is manufactured in Smyrna, Tenn.

Infiniti JX Concept (With music) 2013
Infiniti JX Concept Makes World Debut at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
-- Innovative 7-Passenger, 3-Row Luxury Crossover Concept Previews Latest Addition to Infiniti "Inspired Performance" Lineup, Set for Spring 2012 On Sale --
The Infiniti JX Concept, a preview of an innovative new 7-passenger/3-row luxury crossover that joins the Infiniti lineup in spring 2012, made its world debut last evening at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The JX Concept was unveiled by Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura prior to its display throughout the weekend's activities at the famed Lodge at Pebble Beach.
"The JX Concept advances the Infiniti design language, sharing design cues of the Infiniti Essence concept, yet interprets those elements in ways suitable to the needs of a family luxury crossover," said Nakamura. "From the dramatic front grille and headlight design to the crescent-cut D-pillar and greenhouse shape, the JX Concept shines as a fresh, bold alternative to the many flavors of vanilla currently dominating the three-row luxury crossover segment."
Beyond its stunning exterior, the new Infiniti JX Concept is designed to excel in three areas where luxury crossover buyers put an emphasis -- interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and innovative hospitality features.
"The three-row luxury crossover segment is one of the fastest growing among all luxury vehicle segments, providing a huge opportunity for Infiniti," explained Wendy Durward, Director of Infiniti Canada. "And like every segment Infiniti enters, we plan to shake up the status quo -- with a vehicle that is guaranteed to instantly become the new benchmark for style, hospitality, roominess, advanced telematics and safety technologies."
In the interior, for example, the production Infiniti JX will offer what is expected to be class-leading roominess, along with a 2nd row seat design that tilts and slides forward providing exceptionally easy 3rd row access.
"With the JX, you will even be able to leave a child seat latched to the 2nd row while getting in or out of the 3rd row -- just one example of the vehicle's inspired flexibility and versatility," added Durward. "The 3rd row isn't the typical penalty box either, with adult-sized room for all occupants and five-and-a-half inches of 2nd row forward-back adjustability."
The Infiniti JX continues Infiniti's tradition of developing world's first technologies, offering the currently available Blind Spot Intervention and adding a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX will help the driver detect crossing objects behind the vehicle and, if necessary, the system will automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.
The Infiniti JX will also offer technologies designed to make owners lives a bit easier and more efficient, such as a 14-speaker Bose® Studio Surround® sound system with Waveguide bass technology and an advanced Infiniti Connection Telematics system that can automatically synch the owner's calendar and provide navigation guidance to appointments.
And, in keeping with Infiniti's "Inspired Performance," the Infiniti JX will offer a balance of driving exhilaration and fuel efficiency through a combination of a powerful V6 engine and all-wheel drive. The Infiniti JX will also be the first Infiniti to utilize a sport-tuned, but fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission. The CVT will mimic a step transmission when the Sport mode of the Infiniti drive selector is engaged. Additional information regarding the drivetrain and other systems will be provided at the debut of the production version of the all-new Infiniti JX at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2011.
"As a premium crossover with a real 3rd row -- along with Infiniti levels of hospitality and driving pleasure, the new JX is another breakthrough design from the brand that has been breaking new ground for more than 20 years," Nakamura added. "We will continue to challenge conventional thinking."
In addition, in conjunction with the global reveal of the Infiniti JX, Infiniti is launching the JX Concept "Power of 7" Challenge on Facebook. The challenge invites fans to submit inspiring creations relating to seven Infiniti JX categories: Epicurean, Art & Fashion, Film, Interior Design, Music, Athletics and Technology & Science. The community will vote on the submissions, and winners in each category will receive a cash prize and compete to win trip to 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. More information, including official rules, is available at www.facebook.com/infiniti (prizing available for US residents only).

New 2013 Infiniti JX Interior
Infiniti doesn't exactly want for SUVs or crossovers, with the QX56, FX35/FX50, and EX35 all on its current roster. What the luxury brand does need, however, is a family friendly SUV or crossover, something to battle the Audi Q7 and Acura MDX, among others. The QX is too huge and thirsty—not to mention too expensive—to fill the role; the twitchy, sporty FX lacks cargo space and a third row; and the five-seat EX is simply too small. Enter the JX.
The vehicle is for now technically a concept, but this is pretty much what you'll see in production form at November's L.A. auto show. It's a three-row, seven-passenger family hauler, with space efficiency, convenience, and fuel economy as its priorities. Infiniti promises the JX will pack a "powerful V-6," the displacement of which in liters is unconfirmed but probably rhymes with "pee-joint-jive." Output should fall in the neighborhood of 290 hp, and since the JX will make use of Nissan's D platform (Maxima, Murano), front-wheel drive will be standard. All-wheel drive will be an option.
The transmission is a "sport-tuned" continuously variable unit, which, if not for the existence of an affordable, Toyota-based Aston Martin, would be the ultimate automotive oxymoron. But Nissan—Infiniti's parent company—is one of very few automakers who have proven that it can do a CVT well, and the JX's unit will incorporate a Sport mode that, when active, will cause the transmission to simulate a regular automatic. No specific number was given, but we'd guess seven or eight ratios will be plucked from the CVT's theoretically infinite spread to act as the "fixed" gears, if only to keep up with competitors who boast similarly endowed conventional automatics.
Hybrid Could Arrive Soon
Infiniti has stated that hybrids will become an increasingly large part of its strategy. It offers only the M35h right now, and the JX seems a likely candidate to be the brand's second gas/electric. It's possible that a hybrid JX would use a smaller, more efficient V-6—the 2.5-liter already found in the G25 sedan, for example. Evidence to support this theory exists in trademark applications filed by Infiniti last summer, including one for "JX25h".
Infiniti provided an official look at the interior, but we already knew what to expect up front thanks to spy shots captured earlier this summer. The dashboard will look instantly familiar to anyone who's been in an Infiniti in the past few years, with the corporate steering wheel, shift knob, and gauge treatments all present. The center stack will undulate as it does in the brand's other vehicles, with the volume and tuning knobs, radio presets, and CD slot on an upright face at the bottom; an angled slab housing the infotainment and HVAC controls above that; and the navigation and information screen at the top, flanked by two central vents. Some chassis adjustment (likely throttle response and transmission behavior) will be available via a knob mounted on the center tunnel. The cabin's most visually interesting element might be the slashes of wood cutting across the door panels.
Behind the front occupants, Infiniti is talking up the flexibility of the second and third rows. The company says that the second row will offer 5.5 inches of fore and aft travel, and that the JX will have "adult-sized" room in the way back. The middle row of seats will tilt and slide to aid ingress and egress to the third row. Goodies on offer will include blind-spot monitoring, Infiniti's first application of cross-path detection—it watches for vehicles coming from the sides as you reverse—a 14-speaker Bose stereo system, a panoramic roof, and the recently announced Infiniti Personal Assistant service.
A Crescent for the Fertile
Infiniti describes the D-pillar treatment, previously seen on the C-pillars of the Etherea and Essence concepts, as a "crescent cut," which sort of makes us want a Croissan'Wich. The pillar swoop is a bold hallmark that will spread to all future Infinitis, and it provides a dash of sizzle to a boring vehicle type. Some elements of the JX, especially in profile, remind us of the Dodge Durango (front fender sculpting) and the Mercedes-Benz GL-class (body-side crease, tall A-pillar), but that's no knock. There are only so many ways to go about wrapping a two-box, seven-passenger SUV, and the JX does so in attractive fashion.
While a new crossover isn't something we break into cold sweats over, the JX looks like it will be a relatively stylish, well-executed entry in one of the hottest vehicle segments. We'll have more details as the L.A. show draws near.
