2015 INFINITI QX70 vs. Its Competition

2015 Infiniti QX70
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The Infiniti QX70 competes mostly with sporty, European alternatives.

The Audi Q5 offers a choice of diesel and supercharged V-6 engines that both compete well against the QX70.

If you're looking for the ultimate execution in style, Range Rover's Evoque is a head-turner every time.

The Porsche Cayenne also offers five seats and thrilling driving dynamics, but its price starts where the QX70's ends.

The BMW X6 also comes in a few very fast flavors, but again, climbs well above the Infiniti's price point.

And, there's the Lincoln MKX, which is significantly more docile than the rest of the competitors here, but looks pleasant and offers plenty of technology.
