The lines of the 2013 Infiniti JX include all the brand's recent styling cues, with large chrome double-arc grille up front and a crescent-shaped rear roof pillar.
Considering how large it is, Infiniti's styling team has done an excellent job in minimizing the bulk of the seven-seat vehicle. The long hood removes any hint of minivan, and "haunches" over the large 18- or 20-inch alloy wheels swell gently. At the rear, the roofline drops slightly. The result is a long, tall vehicle with a relatively athletic appearance and sleeker looks than the shorter and more slab-sided Acura MDX.
The luxury continues inside as well. While the analog clock verges on becoming a design cliche, the dashboard, door panels, and seats are rich but restrained--and designed to accommodate family needs as well.
Even the base JX models convey an air of luxury inside, although it's practical luxury for families--this will be a working vehicle--rather than over-the-top opulence. While all-black interiors are available, Infiniti has an array of two-tone treatments that lighten the space and add luxury without crossing into garishness. Chocolate brown and beige is likely to be popular, we suspect. Accent trim is wood or matte silver metal.
