2013 Infiniti JX35 Long Term Road Test


2013 Infiniti JX35: Climate Controlled Seats

February 18, 2013

2013 Infiniti JX35

Heated and cooled front seats have become a must in upper end luxury cars and crossovers, but Infiniti does them right. Our 2013 Infiniti JX35's Climate Controlled front seats are part of its optional Deluxe Touring Package, which costs $2,550. They offer six overall settings, three for heat and three for cool, and they perform wonderfully.

But my favorite part of Infiniti's package is the controller itself. Unlike the button found in most cars, Infiniti uses a little dial.

Why is this better? Simple. In most other cars, that button needs to be pushed to activate the bun warmers each and every time you climb behind the wheel. Even if you just run up to an ATM and had left the car for a minute you must reactivate your seat heaters.

Infiniti had a better idea. Infiniti's dial remembers. It allows you to choose your favorite setting just once. No matter how many times you turn the car on and off, it always remains in that setting. So each and every time you climb behind the wheel that seat is climate controlled to your liking.

Infiniti has made the climate controlled seat a set-it-and-forget-it operation. And I think it's brilliant.
