Collegando un buco con un Seven-Passenger tappo sintetico
Consumers looking for a sport coupe, sport sedan, sporty five-seat crossover, five-passenger luxury crossover, trailer-capable SUV, luxury sedan or sports coupe hybrid were able to drive to Infiniti showrooms very satisfied. The automaker offers a well-kept family of vehicles for each of these genres, no doubt.
However, wealthy families who are looking to import luxury seven-seater crossover – without a traditional lineage trucks – have been forced to shop elsewhere. Many missed opportunities to end the Infiniti key to Acura MDX, Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90. With the aim to close a gaping in its range of products, Infiniti has officially introduced the world to its new JX crossover at the Los Angeles Auto Show a few months ago.
The newcomer is designed to “excel in areas that buyers of luxury crossover dearest wish – interior flexibility and roominess, safety, hospitality and advanced features”, says Infiniti. But to us, some of these qualities seem to move away from the company’s tagline ‘Inspired Performance’. Intrigued by the new arrival, we boarded a plane and flew to Charleston, South Carolina, for an introduction and test drive the JX crossover.
With a press of the button START / STOP, the V6 3.5-liter stirred to life calmly. Instead of going with the latest electronic selector to free space in the center console, there is a change and a traditional console-mounted parking brake pedal. While a CVT is not our first choice for a change, it is undeniably smooth and fuel consumption. Initially, we chose to leave Toyota’s drive Mode Selector (with Standard, Sport, Snow and Eco settings) of the standard after finding ‘gears’ of artificial sports fashion very unnatural and economical Eco mode annoyingly frustrating.
The power output from the trusty 3.5-liter VQ not fire any neck (we estimate that the 4.419-pound JX will do 0-60 in about eight seconds), but it was more than enough to move along the road with the Infiniti balance and The resolution, if not passion – the CVT is a guide for each pulse off casually. According to the EPA, the JX AWD gets 18 mpg city and 23 highway mpg with a combined score of 20 mpg (FWD model gets 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with a combined score of 21 mpg). According to our trip computer, we have an average of 19.1 mpg during our daylong adventure.
For the most part, we found the ride and the car properly without wind noise (the JX has a drag coefficient of 0.34). The non-adjustable suspension is not designed to be sporty and standard all-season tires are not designed for a tenacious grip. However, sudden turns (for example, the avoidance maneuvers) were easy to control, but rich in understeer significant. We would have preferred more suspension travel in a crossover design, such as the JX has reacted harshly to serious holes and / or large depressions in the road. At one point, the Infiniti bottomed his suspension when we encountered a deep dive at highway speeds.
few will choose to buy or rent the new JX according to its acceleration, handling and braking.
The four disc brakes brought to a halt without the JX and drama with good modulation. The official tow rating is a modest 3,500 pounds – if you want to tow a trailer, Infiniti will be happy to sell his pride and joy of the body-on-frame QX56.
Few choose to buy or rent the new JX according to its acceleration, handling and braking. The JX will entice shoppers with its long list of standard luxury and technology standards and available – its confusing soup of acronyms linguist, designed to enhance both active and passive safety.
The family and / or self-explanatory JX include the Lane Departure Warning (LDW), anti-lock brakes (ABS), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), advanced climate control system (ACCS), high intensity discharge headlights (HID), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Advanced Air Bag System (AABS), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), Around View Monitor (AVM), Blind Spot Intervention (BSI), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Brake Assist (BA), Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and remote engine start system (RESS).
