7 cars for moms to escape the minivan rut

Infiniti JX35
Infiniti JX35
  • Base price: $42,650 (AWD version)
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 18 mpg
    • Highway - 24 mpg

The Infiniti JX35 should appeal to moms looking for gobs of passenger space, upscale amenities and a wide array of optional, high-end safety technology.

Second-row seats with a tilt-and-slide feature create a wide opening for accessing the third row that can accommodate adults.

Included in the base price are a number of key features, such as a rear-view monitor and a power rear liftgate. Other standard equipment: keyless entry/ignition, three-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and iPod interface.

To the price above add $3,100 for the technology package, and you get lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, blind spot warning, Blind Spot Intervention and front pre-crash seat belts, which tighten preemptively in a frontal collision.

A 265-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to an automatic continuously variable automatic transmission delivers the giddyap.
