For 2015, Infiniti's QX70 luxury crossover SUV loses its V8 engine, leaving just two trims: QX70 and QX70 AWD (all-wheel drive). The available Sport package loses its most compelling features, those being Rear Active Steering and Continuous Damping Control.
Although its name may seem unfamiliar, the 2015 Infiniti QX70 began its run in life as the popular FX, a design that has held up amazingly well over the years. Sleek, low and fast, the QX70 is still one of the best driving luxury SUVs around, though it has lost some of its mojo with the deletion of the 5.0-liter V8 engine. Not noted for its spacious back seat or vast cargo hold, the QX70 is more about style and performance than utility, placing it on par with the Porsche Cayenne and a cut above the soft-riding Lexus RX. But Infiniti's midsize luxury SUV remains relevant, thanks to its gorgeous interior, long list of electronic entertainment and safety features, and relatively strong resale and reliability ratings.

"I have had this car for a month and put on about 2000 miles.As I said its a great car with comfort and drives extremely well. A few annoying things have really disappointed me. The worst shifting pattern I have seen. From start the trans, winds up, than it winds up again and than a third time. The last three shifts you don' hear. This pattern is indicative of much cheaper cars. All the time you hear the engine winding up. How annoying is this! A couple of other things like the mirror folding switch can not be seen due to its location and the mirror adjustment switch is also not in the right place and difficult to use. These two items are used constantly but were designed by a first year engineer. For an expensive car I am amazed at the misses."
