Previously known as the FX series, the QX70 is Infiniti’s answer to the mid-size luxury crossover segment. Underpinned by Nissan’s FM platform, the second generation (S51) of the nameplate is either utterly ugly from every angle or a complete masterpiece on wheels depending on what is you’re looking for in a good-looking family hauler.
One notable detail that needs highlighting is that the Infiniti FX/QX70 was designed to combine sporty handling characteristics with the comfort and the functionality of a sports utility vehicle. Although it isn’t as popular as its rivals from Germany, this is an alternative for defying the Teutonic status quo.

After it debuted at last year’s Paris Motor Show, the order books for the Infiniti QX70S Design are now open. The automaker says that the S Design is “adding a definite bad-boy spirit to the elegant sportiness of the QX70” and that it ”builds on the provocative, design-led ethos of the standard QX70 – the original full-size luxury crossover to embody the athletic dynamism of a sports car.”

Priced at £49,620 for the diesel or £49,775 for the 3.7-liter petrol (Nissan 370Z, anyone?)

If you haven’t understood anything, that’s ‘cos it is the typical marketing mumbo-jumbo. From our point of view, the S Design-grade Infiniti QX70 is visually enhanced by dark chrome bits and bobs here and there, giving the standard model a little designer twist for extra visual drama. As you can see in the gallery below, the dark chrome theme is adopted by most of the body shell’s centerpieces.

The 2015 Infiniti QX70S Design features a blacked-out front grille, fog light bezels, side air vents, side sills, as well as smoked headlights and 21-inch six-spoke alloy wheels finished in the same black hue as the roof rails and mirrors. As for the inside treatment, the 2015 Infiniti QX70S Design comes with black lacquer finish on the centre console and purple stitching for the seats, steering wheel and armrest.
