Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the Mazda CX-9 delivers a handful of small but useful changes. Standard on all models is Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, a new electronic system that the company says improves steering and stability in turns. All trims offer new standard safety features and driver aids, ranging from blind-spot monitoring on Sport trims to front parking sensors on upper trims.

PROS
With sharp, modern style inside and out, the CX-9 feels richer than its cost
Sporty handling makes it fun to drive
Comfortable interior remains quiet on the highway
Top-level Signature trim is on par with some luxury-brand competitors

CONS
Third-row seats aren't especially accommodating
Cargo capacity isn't as generous as in competitors

Remarkable exterior style
Flexible interior
Better advanced safety features
Good infotainment screen..

Cons
.but it’s not a touchscreen
Cramped interior for its size
Not as many options as others
No advanced powertrains

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Some outdated tech features and design touches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
