The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Though aging, the 2016 Infiniti QX70 still offers an appealing mix of sporty dynamics, coupe-like looks, and luxurious appointments. Expensive and fancy for a vehicle from a mainstream brand, the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg is also less expensive than some comparable luxury-SUV options.
