Flaunting a rakish, athletic stance and boisterous exhaust note, the QX70 is a snazzy standout. A somewhat coarse but brawny 325-hp 3.7-liter V-6 is mated to a seven-speed automatic; choose either rear- or all-wheel drive. The QX70 feels at home hustling around corners but the steering is regrettably numb. Passengers are treated to an attractive and hospitable cabin chock full of tech toys. The ride is too firm to be considered luxurious, but that may be appealing to more spirited drivers.
