2013 Infiniti JX35: Great Stereo

2013 Infiniti JX35

My two favorite things about of our 2013 Infiniti JX35 share one screen: the stereo and the parking cameras.

I'm a big fan of subwoofers, and I'll always remember what my father told me about music, "If it's too loud, you're too old." Driving to work this morning I decided on a record I like to play to test the quality of speakers, Mumford and Sons' Sigh No More. Marcus Mumford has a voice that encourages singing along vigorously in traffic and no commute is truly complete without a banjo of some sort.

The stereo on the Infiniti JX35 did not disappoint. At near-full volume, the speakers lost no quality and drowned out my terrible but enthusiastic singing just as I desired.

When I got to our office here at Edmunds, I even had fun parking the JX35.

The Infiniti JX35 isn't particularly large but going from driving our Ford Focus ST one night to the Infiniti the next, sure brings your parking confidence level down a notch.

Luckily for me, the Infiniti JX35 has a super-useful birds-eye view feature:

I could easily tell how centered I was in the parking spot from all angles. I could see if the rear bumper was sticking way out, and how much room I had in front of me before I'd give a Mercedes a love tap. The side views gave me perspective on poles and if opening my doors would ding other cars.

The technology interface in the Infiniti JX35 is simple and easy to use. Equally important, it's the landing spot for an excellent sound system and an elaborate but incredibly functional camera array. In the tech department, the JX35 ranks among my favorites in the Edmunds long-term fleet.
