New seven-seat SUV will not be sold in the UK
22 August 2011

Infiniti revealed its new new seven-seat luxury crossover concept at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The Infiniti JX, which will be revealed in its production guide at the LA motor show in November, is claimed by the firm to "excel in three areas where luxury crossover buyers put an emphasis, interior flexibility and roominess, safety and innovative 'hospitality' features".

In production form, the JX will be offered with a 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.

    Jaguar’s second SUV faces up to the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Tough task, so is the E-Pace up to it?

    Not the driver’s car many would hope from any car wearing the Jaguar badge, but the E-Pace is an attractive and interesting addition to the compact premium SUV ranks

    The fifth-generation Subaru Impreza is much improved from top to bottom, but a poor engine and gearbox keep it trailing in this competitive class

    We get a first taste of Ford’s poshest Fiesta in turbocharged diesel form

    Seat is on a roll but can the Arona, its new junior SUV, cut it in such an ultra-competitive class?
