Infiniti debuts new JX crossover concept
Friday 19 August 2011
Infiniti has debuted a new concept aimed squarely at families at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
The seven-passenger Infiniti JX crossover is a three-row model set to go on sale in the US in spring 2012, becoming another contender in the country's fastest-growing luxury vehicle segment.
Infiniti describes the model's new shape as that of a greenhouse, promising 'class-leading roominess' and an innovative access method to the rear row.
Instead of folding, the access seat tilts slightly and slides forward, meaning parents can leave a child seat latched to the second row while getting in and out of the third row.
Details on the engine weren't provided, although Infiniti confirmed that the model will be offered with a V6 engine powering an all-wheel or front-wheel drive, and additional information will be released at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November.
Infiniti wasn't the only brand in action at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, one of the world's most famous classic car competitions which is rapidly becoming a place for brands to showcase new models alongside the old.
Lexus also unveiled a new model, its 2013 GS 350 sedan, a mid-size luxury model which will be launched in sport and hybrid configuration in early 2012 by the Toyota-owned firm.
The Concours d'Elegance, part of Monterey Automotive Week, runs through August 21 in Monterey, California.
