LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – Hindsight may be 20-20, but only the innovative Backup Collision Intervention system, introduced by Infiniti at the Los Angeles Auto Show, has the ability to detect vehicular cross traffic and other rearward objects while backing up and, if necessary, automatically apply the brakes to help prevent a collision.
In addition to the new technology, the automaker was also showing off its 2013 JX crossover along with the new 2013 IPL G Convertible in L.A. The Backup Collision Intervention system will be available in spring 2012 on the JX
“The Los Angeles Auto Show is the perfect venue to host the world debuts of these important new additions to the Infiniti portfolio,” said Wendy Durward, director of Infiniti Canada.
“They represent two different aspects of our line – our first entry into the growing 7-passenger luxury crossover segment and a performance four-seat luxury convertible – yet both are pure Infiniti, challenging the status quo in their respective categories.”
