For The Infiniti QX70 is fearsome to look at and the powerful engines mean there’s plenty of pace to play with.

Against You face big fuel bills whichever engine you choose, and the cabin is neither big enough nor classy enough. This is a pricey car to buy, too.

11 5stars

An interesting prospect for maverick 4x4 buyers, but the huge costs involved make the Infiniti QX70 prohibitively expensive to buy and run.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Buying an Infiniti QX70 should be hassle-free. You spec your car on a screen in the dealership over a cup of coffee, and you’re assigned your own ‘Account Manager’ who looks after all your needs, whether it’s buying, servicing or selling on.

As to which QX70 to pick, we recommend the entry-level diesel-engined 30d GT. It’s still plenty quick enough and comes with an extensive kit list, including heated and ventilated electric leather seats, privacy glass, an automatic gearbox, electric sunroof, all-singing multimedia system and 20-inch alloys. You also get self-repairing paint.

Upgrading to the S adds adaptive damping and 21-inch alloys, but the wheels make the ride and road noise worse than on the GT.

Choosing the 50S gives you the fire-breathing V8 engine and adds rear active steer, intelligent cruise control and an upgraded multimedia system to the standard kit. It’s much pricier to buy, though, and running costs will be higher still.

No car is perfect, but having now owned an FX3.0d S Premium for 3 months, I think your review is largely misleading. The car drives excellently on the…

Infiniti gets criticised due to avg 30 mpg. But my view is you need to consider the total cost. The high discounts they are giving more than…
