The Top Gear car review:Infiniti QX70
For:The flagship premium Nissan fires its guns at the Range Rover Sport, but falls short.
Against:Too huge for our roads
What is it?
Car design inspired by training shoes. The QX’s overblown looks suggest that its lines were penned by those more used to drawing hi- top pumps than designing cars. It’s surprisingly refreshing as a result, the comedy proportions and weird surfacing rather appealing. It’s been a big success in the USA, where the audience isn’t averse to trying new things. Here in Blighty we’re a bit more conservative, with the QX appealing to a handful of buyers demanding difference.
