Infiniti JX Named To Parenting Magazine’s “Smartest Family Cars Of 2012” List

– All-New 7-Passenger Luxury Crossover Recognized for its Family-Friendly Features in Magazine’s First-Ever “Genius” Issue –

Parenting magazine has recognized the Infiniti JX as one of the year’s “Smartest Family Cars” in its February 2012 issue, on stands now.  The list is featured in Parenting’s first-ever “Genius” issue, dedicated to helping parents unlock their child’s own unique genius potential.  Equipped with the latest technology to help ease the load of managing the modern tribe, the Infiniti JX allows parents and kids to take advantage of some of the smartest automotive features on the market.

“By recognizing today’s smartest cars, Parenting hopes to make it easy for families to use technology on the road, whether it’s for a quick run to the store or for an extended road trip vacation,” said Ana Connery, Editorial Director for The Parenting Group.  “Our editors’ top picks have thought of everything so that parents don’t have to.”

The Infiniti JX, which will be available at Infiniti retailers beginning this spring, was chosen for its many family-friendly features, such as its collision sensors that automatically engage the brake if another vehicle is detected when the JX is in reverse, as well as four external cameras that provide a 360-degree view of the surroundings.  There is also the ability to synch appointments from Google Calendar into the navigation system.

“The Infiniti JX’s features were inspired by families who told us they wanted a luxury vehicle with features like the world’s first Backup Collision Intervention system, an Around View Monitor and not having to take out a child safety seat to get access to the 3rd row,” said Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore.  “We’re proud that Parenting magazine recognized our desire to make hectic family lives a little a more efficient and much more enjoyable.”
