2013 Infiniti JX35: Road Trip Comfort

April 17, 2013

2013 Infiniti JX35

I'm consistently impressed by the comfort provided by our long-term 2013 Infiniti JX35.

Two weeks ago I drove the luxury crossover about 1,500 miles including a road trip from Santa Monica to Scottsdale, Arizona and back, including a short side trip to the California/Mexico border. Such trips are a great way to evaluate the seat and ride comfort of a vehicle. After six hours behind the wheel you either appreciate a cars comfort or you're ready for that appointment with the chiropractor.

The JX is perfect for such trips. Its driver's seat is a wonderfully shaped piece, its suspension tuning perfectly pulls off the Goldilocks (you know, not tooooo firm and not toooooo soft) and its cabin is fantastically quiet. Driving the Infiniti JX hundreds of miles is always a stress-free experience and spending the entire day behind the wheel is easy.

    I'm seeing more and more of these on the road. I'm wondering if the JX will be for Infiniti what the RX has been for Lexus. Maybe that's a bit much. I imagine the RX is the car that auto industry execs dream about. But there's no reason the JX can't be a blockbuster car for Infiniti. It delivers exactly what most luxury 3-row CUV/SUV buyers are looking for. The only real competitor right now is the MDX and I find that car a little smaller and less useful inside. Maybe the Enclave although it's not quite there in terms of luxury feel. The truth is that the majority of families driving around in X5s and Q7s would be much happier in the JX.
