Setting the Joneses' curtains twitching are new dark chrome details for the grille, foglight surrounds and side air scoops, a new smoked finish for the headlights, black door mirrors and roof rails, and massive 21in six-spoke alloy wheels in, er, black.
There are four other trims underneath the range-topper - GT, GT Premium, S and S Premium. The entry-level models come with 20in alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, keyless entry and go, automatic lights and wipers, an electric sunroof and Bluetooth as standard, while upgrading to GT Premium adds Infiniti's safety technology, LED rear lights, a Bose sound system and an infotainment system with sat nav and a 30GB hard drive included.
The mid-range S models get 21in alloy wheels, sports seats, adaptive suspension and rear-wheel steering thrown into the package, while the S Premium trim adds sat nav, a Bose sound system, a 360-degree camera and adaptive cruise control.
As for the engine line-up there was a 235bhp V6 diesel, which we are driving here, although the range now consists on Infiniti's venerable 3.7-litre V6 and a 5.0-litre V8 producing 315bhp and 384bhp respectively.
Behind the wheel, the QX70 certainly feels big and brash. You'll need to get used to people peering inside, while trying to guess what they're thinking soon becomes more entertaining than a game of i-spy. Trouble is, seeing passers-by or indeed your immediate surroundings isn't easy from inside the QX70 - not what you need in a car approaching the width of a Bentley Continental GT.
The shallow windscreen, low-slung driving position (for an SUV), large rear-view mirror and thick rear pillars all get in the way, while judging where those expensive 21in wheels are is made more difficult by the QX70's lumpy front arches. Added to this, the steering is almost comically heavy at low speeds.
When you're not tip-toeing through width restrictors, the QX70 is more enjoyable. From just 1750rpm there's a huge 406lb ft lump of torque ready and waiting, and it's on song for long enough to ensure that B-road overtakes are carried out with confidence.
