Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Infiniti QX70 ranks 17 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Infiniti QX70 is all about driving dynamics, offering powerful engine performance and sharp handling. However, you won't get the rear-seat or cargo space that many other SUVs offer. Though tech features are user-friendly, the interior design looks dated compared to rivals.

Pros
Powerful engine
Engaging handling
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity
Cramped rear seats
Some outdated tech features and design touches

By:

A new Limited package replaces last year's Deluxe Touring option and adds some cosmetic upgrades, but otherwise the QX70 returns unchanged.
The 2017 Infiniti QX70 is a performance SUV that gives you more sport than utility. It also has unique styling and a luxurious interior. But after several years on the market, it's beginning to show its age against newer competitors.

Pros
Sharp handling that makes it feel more like a sport sedan than a tall SUV
Plenty of passing power from the standard V6 engine
Well-trimmed interior has high-quality materials throughout.

Cons
Less forgiving over rough surfaces than most luxury SUVs
Rear passenger and cargo space are small for the class
Technology interface is noticeably dated compared to newer competitors
Only one engine option offered.

It's starting to look and feel dated, but the QX70 provides a healthy dose of thrills and, surprisingly, value.
Formerly called the FX, the 2017 Infiniti QX70 makes some deliberate sacrifices for style and performance to be one of the most driver-focused crossovers available. It's certainly dated up against fresher rivals, but the QX70 focuses instead on delivering excellent driving dynamics in a way matched by few other vehicles of its ilk.

Pros
Terrific chassis
Flexible engine and transmission
Styled like nothing else

Cons
Cramped interior
Poor fuel economy
Expensive safety options

By:

The ultimate Audi crossover is convincingly sporty and properly useful.

Pros
Suave and tech-savvy cabin,
sporty and comfy ride,
more useful than Audi sedans.

Cons
Pricier than the more pragmatic Q7,
distracting touchscreens,
less fun to drive than Audi sedans.

The Audi Q8 is a luxurious, comfortable SUV but it isn't as sporty as its looks suggest, nor is it as practical as a Q7.

Pros
Imposing looks
Indulgent interior
Advanced technology

Cons
Numb handling
Limited versatility
Unproven ride comfort

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

Audi's Q7 is undoubtedly a practical three-row SUV, but maybe you find it to be a bit plain Jane when compared against sleeker rivals such as the Land Rover Range Rover or Porsche Cayenne.

Pros
Comes well-equipped with many standard features
Comfortable ride and seats for all passengers
High-quality cabin
Front and rear seats offer all-day comfort

Cons
Less practical than the related Q7
New infotainment system can be distracting to use
Throttle response is too slow in the default driving mode
Limited interior storage space
