Fuel Economy

Infiniti estimates that the 2013 Infiniti JX35 will get 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with front- and with all-wheel drive. The automaker does not provide a projected number for combined driving. The JX35 requires premium fuel.

Safety

The 2013 Infiniti JX includes six air bags, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, stability control, and a rearview camera. The automaker also includes one free year of Infiniti Connection Plus telematics service, which features automatic crash notification, Speed Alert, and Drive Zone technologies. Drive Zone allows the JX35's owner to set geographic boundaries for where the SUV may be driven and delivers an alert if the vehicle is taken past those limits.

Numerous high-tech, safety-related options are available on the JX, and it is the first SUV model to offer a Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) system, according to Infiniti. BCI monitors vehicle and pedestrian activity behind the JX and will automatically stop it if the system determines that a collision is about to occur. The Infiniti JX35 has not been subjected to crash tests by the NHTSA or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as this preview is written.
