Choices for the JX35 include a Premium package, which features driver seat memory and power lumbar, a 360-degree parking camera system, front and rear parking sensors, a 13-speaker Bose audio system, a hard-drive navigation system with real-time traffic and weather, a larger touchscreen display, voice-activated controls, Bluetooth streaming audio and the Infiniti Connection telematics service.
True luxury, with a much quieter engine sound than competitors, the standard features are very pleasing, making the extra packages even more enjoyable.
Standard features include 18-inch wheels, automatic bi-xenon headlights, fog lights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors, a sunroof, a power lift gate and keyless entry/ignition. Standard interior features include leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, a six-way power passenger seat, heated front seats, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, tri-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a central display screen, a rearview camera and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio and iPod/USB interface.
The Infiniti has set up the JX with a V6/transmission combination that offers average power at the very best. Performance is dull and bland from the driver seat. The new safety technologies are impressive, costly and bundled into complicated option packages. Buyers simply seeking a lot of room and luxury in a crossover will find the 2013 Infiniti JX a pleasant choice.
The Theatre package adds a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, while the Driver Assistance package includes adaptive cruise control, forward and rear collision warning, intelligent brake assist, blind spot warning, a heated steering wheel and remote start. Both packages require the Premium package.
