The marauding new Infiniti QX70 SUV is a muscly, sporty SUV that’s powerful, stylish and attractively priced. Formerly known as the FX, it’s got bigger in every department. Bigger engines, bigger build - but also bigger bills. True, running costs are steep, even for this class. That’s partly due to Infiniti leaving out slow engines and focusing on pure might, speed and performance with a couple of V6 and V8’s. Sound intriguing? OSV takes a closer look at what it’s all about with our 2017 Infiniti QX70 SUV review.
It’s no doubt going to be hard for Infiniti to break into the executive car market when you consider what they’re up against, but they’re giving it a manful go with their Infiniti Q70, an executive saloon that is high on technology, comes packed with 2 muscly engines, as well as the lure of exclusivity. Let’s take a closer at what the Infiniti Q70 offers.
If you opt for the Infiniti Q70 M37, you’ll find it powered by a 3.7-litre 320PS V6 petrol engine, whilst the M30d alternative is powered by a 3.0-litre 238PS diesel. Both variants are rear-wheel-drive, whilst the 3.0-litre diesel can also boast torque that rivals the best its rivals can offer – 550Nm of it. Each variant is equipped with a 7-speed Adaptive Shift Control gearbox, which aids drivability and throttle.
Each Infiniti Q70 is also equipped with the Infiniti Drive, a driving system that allows
The Infiniti Q50 comes across as an executive car (well, it is an executive car); it looks like one, feels like one, drives like one, but as you open the door, you might be forgiven for being a little startled to find a Nissan label. The Infiniti Q50 is owned by Nissan, but comes with an engine built by Mercedes. Does it have an identity all of its own? Let’s find out with our Infiniti Q50 review.
Infiniti: it may not be the best known of manufacturers – and it probably isn’t the first port of call for anyone looking for car lease deals on executive saloons. In fact, the new Infiniti Q50 warrants close attention for anyone looking at models such as the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4.
There are a few very good reasons why the Infiniti Q50 should be able to carve a niche for itself in this market. For one thing, the car offers impressive performance coupled with respectable levels of efficiency. The build quality is high enough for this car to hold its own against the likes of Audi and BMW. What’s more, there’s a degree of practicality with the Infiniti Q50 that makes it ideal not just for car-pooling but also as a useful family car.
When asked to name a renowned manufacturer of luxury SUVs, it’s fair to say that Infiniti wouldn’t be the first name to come from most people’s lips. The marks most people head for when looking for car lease deals on vehicles in this class tend to be the likes of the Porsche Cayenne, BMW X6, and of course, Range Rover’s offerings.

Infiniti is a newcomer (at least so far as the European market is concerned). This Japanese manufacturer has obviously done its homework on what people want from an SUV at the top end. Pleasingly, it’s come up with the Infiniti FX: a car that’s designed to give the more established names a run for their money.
The good news is that Infiniti has achieved what it set out to do. The Infiniti FX deserves to be taken out for a test drive for three very good reasons: a
