The Good The 2013 Infiniti JX35 is available with a full array of active and passive driver aid systems. Infiniti Connected brings Web connectivity and telematics to the HDD navigation system. Eco Pedal is a great tool for learning to drive efficiently.
The Bad The engine and transmission combination feels a bit underpowered for this vehicle.
The Bottom Line The 2013 Infiniti JX35 seems to be custom-made for distracted parents, with seating for seven, advanced and innovative driver aid technology, and a full infotainment and rear-seat entertainment package.
2013 Infiniti JX35
Parents have a pretty tough job. Parents who are also drivers have it even tougher. They have to keep an eye on the kids in the backseat who are just waiting for an opportunity to kill each other, while keeping two eyes on the road so that the whole family doesn't die in a fiery crash. That's three eyes that they need, but most only have two. Forget texting, a shouting toddler is the ultimate driver distraction.
Infiniti's 2013 JX35 steps up to the plate with an array of driver aid technologies that help to keep a digital eye on the road and the cars around to help parents in those vital seconds when they need to glance away to tend to their kid. The system can even intervene on the driver's behalf, acting like a sort of force field, keeping the vehicle away from what could end up being minor fender benders.
The JX can't drive itself (yet), so you'll still need to pay attention to the world on the other side of the windshield, but thankfully the seven-passenger vehicle is also available with an array of entertainment options (including a pair of rear monitors) to keep those kids distracted so that the poor parent behind the wheel can concentrate more on the road.
