Used Car: 2013 Infiniti JX Review
When it was introduced in 2013, reviewers loved the Infiniti JX’s roomy, high-tech and luxurious cabin, but were less impressed with its dull handling and lackluster acceleration.
A six-cylinder engine powers the 2013 Infiniti JX, and most test drivers were underwhelmed by the engine’s power and the JX’s acceleration. An automatic transmission (CVT) is standard, and some reviewers felt it contributes to the JX’s lackluster performance. Fuel economy for the 2013 JX is 18/24 mpg city/highway, according to the EPA, which is good for the class. Reviewers noted that the JX has a soft ride and disappointing handling, with slow, light steering and noticeable body roll through turns.
According to most reviewers, the 2013 Infiniti JX has a high-tech cabin with intuitive tech features, premium materials and plenty of comfort for up to seven people. Some critics even mentioned that the third row is hospitable for adults, which isn’t always the case in this class. Standard features include tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, Bluetooth, a USB port, an auxiliary input and a 7-inch display screen. Infiniti’s Around View Monitor, which uses multiple cameras to give the driver a 360-degree view of the area around the JX, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, a 15-speaker Bose audio system, navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system are available. Auto journalists found the Around View Monitor very helpful when backing up. Reviewers noted that the JX offers a decent amount of cargo space with the middle and rear rows of seats folded.
Other SUVs to Consider
The 2013 Acura MDX comes standard with all-wheel drive, and reviewers liked its smooth-shifting and responsive automatic transmission. The MDX has a good amount of cargo space for the class, and critics said it has straightforward audio and navigation controls.
The five-seat 2013 Lexus RX won reviewers over with its hushed interior and comfortable ride. The RX also has one of the top reliability ratings and good fuel economy for the class.
