"The JX Concept advances the Infiniti design language, sharing design cues of
the Infiniti Essence concept, yet interprets those elements in ways suitable to
the needs of a family luxury crossover," said Nakamura. "From the dramatic front
grille and headlight design to the crescent-cut D-pillar and greenhouse shape,
the JX Concept shines as a fresh, bold alternative to the many flavors of
vanilla currently dominating the three-row luxury crossover segment."
Beyond its exterior, the new Infiniti JX Concept is designed to excel
in three areas where luxury crossover buyers put an emphasis - interior
flexibility and roominess, safety, and innovative hospitality features.
"The three-row luxury crossover segment is one of the fastest growing among all

Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore. "And like every segment Infiniti
enters, we plan to shake up the status quo - with a vehicle that is guaranteed
to instantly become the new benchmark for style, hospitality, roominess,
advanced telematics and safety technologies."
In the interior, for
example, the production Infiniti JX will offer what is expected to be
class-leading roominess, along with a 2nd row seat design that tilts and slides
forward providing exceptionally easy 3rd row access.
"With the JX, you
will even be able to leave a child seat latched to the 2nd row while getting in
or out of the 3rd row - just one example of the vehicle's inspired flexibility
and versatility," added Poore. "The 3rd row isn't the typical penalty box
either, with adult-sized room for all occupants and five-and-a-half inches of
2nd row forward-back adjustability."
The Infiniti JX continues Infiniti's
tradition of developing world's first technologies, offering the currently
available Blind Spot Intervention and adding a new feature, Backup Collision
Intervention. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX
will help the driver detect crossing objects behind the vehicle and, if
necessary, the system will automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a
