Looking for a family vehicle with exceptional safety features and a healthy dose of style? Consider a used 2013 Infiniti JX35, which Car and Driver named the best CVT on the market.
Leather seats, wood detailing, and smooth contours set the tone for the luxurious interior. Infiniti has expanded the space for all three rows of passengers, in particular, the back two, which can now comfortably fit five people. The middle bench has the ability to slide forward 5.5 inches, allowing easy passenger access to the back.
This 3.5-liter V6 engine puts out plenty of kick with 265 horsepower. It has an EPA fuel economy of 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. No need to worry about highway merging as the Infiniti can go zero to 60 in 7.8 seconds and hit a quarter-mile in 16 seconds.
Safety is where the Infiniti JX35 really shines. Drivers are treated to BCI: Backup Collision Intervention, which uses radar and sonar parking sensors in the rear to scan for obstacles and cross-traffic. It can also stop the car from reversing if it’s traveling up to 5 mph. The JX is equipped with Lane Departure Prevention, Intelligent Brake Assist, and Blind Spot Intervention. Furthermore, the Infiniti performs well under adverse weather conditions, thanks to its sophisticated Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive system and responsive steering.
