Known as Infiniti's old FX model, the new 2016 Infiniti QX70 powered by a V6 has aggressive driving manner and still is considered the best performing luxury-performance vehicles in the crossover SUV segment.

"If you're looking for the commanding driving position and posture of an SUV, but your driving preference leans more toward performance than utility, the 2016 QX70 from Infiniti holds the answer. The QX70's reasonable asking price is another powerful incentive," Kelly Blue Book reports.

The 2016 Infiniti QX70 is all about performance and driving supremacy behind the wheel. With commendable features like stunningly designed interior, long list of available and standard tech equipment, plus good resale value and reliability, the new QX70 remains a top contender in its class.

Under the hood, the Infiniti QX70's 3.7L V-6 powertrain sufficiently delivers 325 horsepower plus 267 lb. ft. torque. Its sole transmission is a quick-shifting seven-speed automatic gearbox integrated with adaptive shift control and manual shift mode. Efficiency estimate recorded by the EPA for the QX70 is at 17 city/24 highway MPG with rear-wheel drive system, while the AWD version makes 16/22 MPG.

The six-cylinder-powered Infiniti QX70 is commended for being a driver-focused crossover and for its strong acceleration. It is drive tested to reach 60 mph from a stop in about 7 seconds. The Car Connection reports that the QX70 though aging is enhanced with an appealing combination of coupe-like appearance, well-appointed luxury interior and superior sporty driving dynamics.

Inside the cabin of the 2016 Infiniti QX70 are surprising luxury details that are present in notable premium sedans. It has soft leather that is quilted with delicate colored stitching plus spacious seats on front and accommodating seats on its rear.

Loaded with all the niceties that a remarkable crossover SUV must-own, the 2016 Infiniti QX70 acquires standard leather seats, moonroof, heated front seats, HID headlights, intelligent key entry/start system, manual tilt/telescopic steering column, cruise control and dual-zone automatic air conditioning. Entertainment inside is handled by standard Bluetooth support and 11-speajer AM/FM/CD/USB system powered by Bose Audio.
