'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' rear impact

The FX's high window sills, curvaceous hood, and tiny rear window potentially make simple low-speed actions, such as parallel parking, into nerve-racking ordeals. Infiniti's answer to this is the Around View Monitor (AVM).
CNET

Using these systems, the FX35 can brake and accelerate on its own, and it can even provide small steering inputs using the brakes.
Consumer Reports


The 2014 Infiniti QX70 surely hasn't been tested yet by either of the U.S. safety agencies; but since it's essentially the same as last year's Infiniti FX, carried ahead with a new badge, we're applying that model's good results from one agency

Because the QX70 is a relatively low-volume model, it's likely that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) won't test this crossover. But the insurance industry-funded Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) did test the FX and found it "good" rating for front and rear impacts. It wasn't tested for side impacts or roof strength, however.

Bluetooth and a rearview camera system are standard on the QX70; and because of obscured visibility from the curvy sheetmetal it does especially need that camera. There's also Infiniti's AroundView camera system, which mounts fisheye lenses on the underside of its outside mirrors and on the nose and tail of the vehicle. The results are stitched together and displayed on the dash's LCD screen for a 360-degree scan of the surroundings. As a standard feature on the QX70 3.7 and optional on the QX70 5.0, this system is useful for parking in narrow garage and parking lot spaces.

Other safety options are bundled in packages. There's Lane Departure Prevention follows lane markings on the road, notifies the driver, and can even apply the brakes lightly, while an advanced cruise control system can bring the FX to a complete stop if traffic slows.


 

 

Conclusion

The AroundView monitor in the QX70 is great, although we wouldn't mind more crash-test data.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
