2014 INFINITI QX70 vs. Its Competition

Most of the rivals to the Infiniti QX70 arrive from Europe.

The Audi Q5's a five-seater with a choice of diesel, hybrid, and supercharged six-cylinder engines, and Audi's minimalist styling is in full play.

For the ultimate styling statement in mid-size crossovers, there's nothing quite equal to the Range Rover Evoque, a stiletto heel in a field of work books, one with turbocharged four-cylinder power and a light touch on pavement.

The Porsche Cayenne's also a five-seater, with a price range that begins where the FX's ends--but for electrifying performance, there's nothing like its ludicrously powerful turbocharged models.

BMW's coupe-like X6 is nearly as fast in M form, but it's top-heavy in appearance, about as cargo-unfriendly as the FX, and very expensive.

The faint at heart could try on Lincoln's MKX for size; it's a pleasant-looking crossover with ample acceleration and a quiet, tasteful cabin.

Quick Specs
The looks of a coupe, the performance of a sport sedan, and the cabin and features of a true luxury car are all here in the 2014 Infiniti QX70. Provided you don't expect a lot of outdoorsy ability, cargo space, or a roomy back seat, it'll leave you charmed.
The 2014 Audi Q5 gets quite serious about fuel economy with TDI power; it's still one of the most elegant, truly carlike luxury crossover SUVs.
The 2014 BMW X6 bends genres, in mostly successful ways; but whether you like it depends on what you're crossing over from.
The 2014 Range Rover Evoque may not be as burly as its bigger brand-mates, but it's every bit as sophisticated and stylish.
The 2014 Lincoln MKX outdoes the Lexus RX in most respects; although MyLincoln Touch is at times a difficult companion.
Yes, Porsche does make a family car, and this is it; the 2014 Cayenne runs the gamut from sporty errand mule to track-worthy sports SUV, with some interesting green options in between.
