The second generation of the QX70, previously known as the FX, has been on sale since 2009 and is Infiniti’s go-to vehicle for those looking for a performance SUV. This midsize luxury crossover is powered by the company’s well-regarded 3.7L V-6 producing 325 hp, which is supplemented by an aggressive exhaust note under acceleration. Standard rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive optional), sport-tuned suspension, and available solid-magnesium paddle shifters help lend to the QX70’s sporty pretensions. The SUV also features a high-quality interior that feels premium throughout. Unfortunately, when stepping inside you realize the QX70 is starting to show its age, especially in the tech department. The modern safety tech you’d expect, such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Around View Monitor, is all there, but the interfaces feel dated and in desperate need of a refresh. Additionally, the rakish styling of the crossover, while attractively sporty, cuts into the cargo room behind the rear seat. However, if you look beyond its shortcomings, you’ll find a sporty SUV that offers great value to potential customers. The 5.0L V-8 previously offered on the QX70 and its predecessor QX50 has been discontinued.
