2013 Infiniti JX Road Test and Review
2013 Infiniti JX: Introduction
When you're a luxury brand known for building automobiles that provide an engaging driving experience almost across the board, having your nose pressed up against the glass while you watch other premium automakers siphon off family sales via plush, three-row front-wheel drive crossovers must be painful. Equally troubling must be the decision to compromise at least part of your identity in order to move enough metal to remain competitive and profit from one of the most lucrative niches in the high end market.
The all-new 2013 Infiniti JX manages to avoid this spiral of marketing introspection by recognizing the simple reality that eventually, many of the brand's customers are going to seek out a larger, more family-oriented vehicle - and that they might as well park something with an Infiniti badge beside their G sedans and FX crossovers. By focusing on everything else Infiniti does very well, the JX manages to make us almost completely forget about the fact that it shares virtually no sporting DNA with its corporate siblings.
