2017 QX70 Limited
Owned a 2004 FX35, was the best car I've ever owned, had 240K mi when I hit a deer squarely front and center, airbags deployed, and insurance totalled the car. Besides cosmetic damage after hitting the deer while traveling 75 mph, there was no structural or mechanical damage. I drove it home with the deflated airbags flapping. Would not have survived in a smaller, lower vehicle. This is the first time I've bought the same car again, just a newer version. The car is gorgeous, powerful, loaded and comfortable. Already took it on T-giving trip from FL to KY. Technology is well placed and easy to access, phone is sync'd via bluetooth, and USB cord adds all my music on board. SAT, AM, FM and aux are a simple push of a button, all with great sound. It doesn't lack anything I want, except the middle retractable cup holder on the floor in the back that the FX35 had. The gearing is growing on me; it revs high at start out in low gears, near 3000, then shifts to around 2000. Different from the FX35, but still smooth and powerful. 21 inch tires on dark grey wheels looks awesome, and handles like a sports car. Very happy! 8 months later, I wouldn't change a thing, except the phone via bluetooth . . . it takes voice commands, then asks me to verify it got it right by picking a number, and it displays 5 names from my contact list, and the one I want is always #1. I wish I could bypass the verification and have it just call. I also added 3M clear bra to the front, mirrors, and door handles. Great product, protects from bug chips and can't see it except up close if you're looking for the line across the hood. Just over a year later, still love it. Some quirky anomalies have started with the music / phone interface, but I haven’t been able to get it to the dealer to check it out. Still works, but sometimes differently than it should. Just over 29K miles, and with oil changes, tire balance, rotation and front end alignment every 5K miles, it drives like new, still looks brand new, and my daughter says it still smells new. Lost count of how many strangers have commented on how beautiful the car is. Just bought an ‘18 Mercedes GLA 250 for my wife, and the salesman had to go outside and drool over it, and he had a $337K Maybach in his showroom. This Infiniti QX 70 Limited, in my opinion, is the star of the entire Nissan/Infiniti menu.
Meh...not really that impressed
I rented this car and spent 900 miles in it (I got in with 8 miles, returned with 908). Overall, I was expecting better. Cabin was nice and well appointed. Buttons were easily placed and generally everything was intuitive and easy to use. Given that it was January and I was in northern Minnesota, I was impressed by the stability control intervention, which was quick and predictable when cornering and the rear started to break away. Kept me on the road pointed the right direction, and there was no tire spinning or anything. As with a lot of Infiniti SUVs, the cabin is a bit claustrophobic and outward visibility is below average. I really had to crane my neck to look over my shoulder and around blind spots. If road conditions were at all undulating, the ride was very jumpy and uncomfortable. You could really see it when the headlights were on; they were bobbing up and down and all of that was transmitted into the cabin. The USB integration was sporadic. Sometimes it would start up right away, others it would get stuck on "reading file" and require a lot more monkeying around with it before music would play. But what was most noteworthy, in a negative sense, was the gas mileage. I drove the 900 miles in less than a week, so my driving was mostly highway. Yet it returned below 20 mpg as an average. For a 20+ gallon tank, range was *barely* 400 miles. I'm not a rocket accelerator, nor do I drive like a speed demon (on the interstate, I have the cruise pegged right around the speed limit). Add to that the engine requires premium gasoline. In this day and age, for a smaller SUV, that kind of mileage is flat-out poor. On the same route with my Cayenne and driving the same style, I get 24-25 mpg. As a result, I would say that while there are some things to like about the QX70, there are much better options out there.
Love the look. Hate the car
Ride is stiff. rattles my dentures. No room in the rear. I'm a big guy so this has made my car a three seater. Not enough space between brake and accelerator. my foot often is partially on both which is a hazard waiting to happen. The gas mileage sucks. I'm only getting 10 mpg. Well below the advertised amount. This was my dream car since the FX35 first came out. My dream has turned into a nightmare.

Maybe the most compelling thing about the 2017 Infiniti QX70 is that it's still around. Now, pay close attention. This vehicle started off as the 2003 Infiniti FX35 with a 3.5-liter V6 and the FX45 when equipped with a 4.5-liter V8. When the second generation was introduced for the 2009 model year, the FX35 returned with that V6, but the V8 model became the FX50 as the engine grew in size to 5.0 liters. Then in 2013 Infiniti went goofy and changed its naming conventions and both FX models became the QX70 — with the 3.7 using a 3.7-liter version of the V6 and the 5.0 designating the V8. Then last year, Infiniti killed the V8 model, and all QX70s are powered by a 3.7-liter V6 making 325 horsepower.

The bottom line is that what we know as the QX70 was introduced nine years ago as the 2009 FX35. In car years, nine is really old.

So in the ever-more crowded marketplace for large, luxury crossovers, the QX70 is easy to overlook. The fact that it has an aging information and entertainment system interface, tight rear seat, stiff ride, aging interior decor and strangely configured option packages doesn't help either. 

The QX70 is offered with either rear- or all-wheel drive and always with a seven-speed automatic transmission behind that 3.7-liter V6. From there it's a matter of choosing three option packages cleverly named Premium, Sport and Limited. Then atop those is a technology package that includes things such as lane departure warning, rain-sensing windshield wipers and adaptive front headlights with auto leveling. Though the QX70's base price is down around $45K, getting aggressive with those packages can launch the total price up over $60,000.

With its broad shoulders and tall stance, the QX70 is not a small vehicle. That's reflected in the EPA fuel economy ratings. The all-wheel-drive QX70 is rated at 18 mpg combined (16 city/22 highway). Go for rear-wheel drive, and it's 19 mpg combined (17 city/24 highway).

With every passing month, the luxury SUV market only becomes more crowded. Staying on top of all the new entries and how they compare relative to the competition takes solid research and good advice. Fortunately you're already on Edmunds, and we're here to help you. So use the tools here and let us help you find a new QX70 or whatever luxury SUV turns out to be right for you.
