The author is incorrect on a couple of points. (1) stating that the QX56 only has one rear video monitor as it has two. (2) As with the LX 570, the Infiniti QX56 with the Deluxe Touring Package features Semi Aniline leather seating as well.
I love the LX570. However... I'd skip over both of these and just get a Land Cruiser. Its not exactly a Spartan car either. Though the LX has the best interior this side of a Range Rover (and even then it gives it a run for its money)
