Infiniti has just announced that the new JX seven-seat SUV will arrive in the Middle East this summer, so all of you with big families/lots of friends, pay attention.

The 2013 model will feature three rows of seats and, Infiniti claims, some dynamic handling too. Expect the usual raft of luxury and technological features, and power from a 3.5-litre V6 engine, mated to a continuously variable transmission.

The JX is firmly marketed as a crossover rather than a 4×4, so don’t expect to go dune bashing in it. Let us know what you think of Infiniti’s new arrival in the comments section below.
