Infiniti's JX seven-seater will cost from around £27k when it goes on sale in America
16 November 2011

Infiniti has revealed its new Infiniti JX seven-seat luxury crossover at the Los Angeles motor show, after showing it first in concept guise at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.

In production form, the JX will be offered with a 3.5-litre 261bhp V6 petrol engine and either front or all-wheel drive. New technologies will be offered including Backup Collision Intervention, which helps the driver detect crossing objects behind the vehicle and if necessary the system engages the brakes to avoid a collision.

The JX, which is not destined for UK sales, will also come with a 14-speaker Bose studio surround sound system, an advanced Infiniti Connection Telematics system that can automatically sync the owner’s calendar and provide navigation guidance to appointments.

“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 senior vice president and chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura at Pebble Beach.

The Infiniti JX will cost from $40,450 (£25,650) for the JX35 FWD and $41,550 (£26,300) for the JX35 AWD model.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
