Infiniti QX70 Video Review

Watch the video

The QX70 provides an alternate choice for those shopping for an SUV Coupe, popularised more recently by the X6 and forthcoming Merc GLE Coupe. It's interesting to note, that the QX70 predates the X6 by 6 years, laying claim to the SUV Coupe way back in 2003. Times have changed, though, can the QX70 still keep up?

This is the QX70 and is Infiniti's answer to the likes of the BMW X5 and Mercedes GLE (previously known as the ML Class).

The QX70 certainly looks like no other SUV on the road with its cab-backwards arrangement and long sleek bonnet. Very coupe-ish. A low swooping roofline and huge 20-inch wheels combine to give it an aggressive stance on the road and that curvaceous bonnet and chrome grille with huge Infiniti badge displayed front and centre, clearly announces itself in rearview mirrors.

The QX70 in reality provides an alternate choice for those shopping for an SUV Coupe, popularised more recently by the X6 and forthcoming Merc GLE Coupe. It's interesting to note, that the QX70 predates the X6 by 6 years, laying claim to the SUV Coupe way back in 2003. Considering Infiniti has only been available in South Africa since 2012, it's not hard to see why the X6 has stolen its thunder.

That sloping roofline does rob the QX70 of rear interior space, and I only just managed to get my 6-foot frame in the rear with the driver’s seat set to my own comfortable position. The boot also suffers somewhat and will only swallow 410-litres of cargo with the  rear seats up, which isn't much more than a regular hatchback. Fold the rear seats down though and cargo space increases to roughly 1 300-litres.

Inside drivers are well catered for with a superbly comfortable 10-way power adjustable seat with passengers receiving 8-way power adjustment. Both are heated and ventilated meaning your bum stays warm in winter and cool in summer. A nice feature is a power adjustable steering column which can be adjusted for both height and reach, meaning finding the optimum driving position is a cinch.
