QX70 is known for its sharp handling, a driver’s crossover built on the platform of the since-replaced G37 sports sedan (and Nissan Z sports car). The first-generation was one of the first vehicles to cross over from car to SUV. It still looks distinctive, if for no other reason than today there are few of them on the road. Now seven years old, it’s a dated product. The QX70 engine has evolved from an early V8 to Infiniti’s tried-and-true 3.7-liter V6, but not yet to its latest and smoother V6 that’s in other models. The engine in the 2017 QX70 makes 325 horsepower and is torquey, mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission with sport mode and rev-matching downshifts, better than a CVT and many 9-speeds. All-wheel-drive is available, improving capability for winter climates and for driving in mud and sand, but the QX70 is not offroad rugged. It gets an EPA-rated 17/24/19 miles per gallon City/Highway/Combined with rear-wheel drive; with all-wheel drive it’s one less mpg. If you’re a driving enthusiast and it’s a wagon you want, the QX70 is about as close as you can come to a thoroughbred. You’ll love your time in the twisties. But be prepared for a firm ride, and be willing to squeeze your backseat passengers, and to settle for a V6 that isn’t Infiniti’s latest.
