New for 2017:

The Premium Select package is now available on the 2017 Infiniti Q70's long-wheelbase model. The package includes exterior and interior accents, sport brakes, alloy wheels and a rear decklid spoiler. Previously, the package was only available on the standard wheelbase model.

Vehicle Summary

The 2017 Infiniti Q70 is a midsize, four-door, luxury sports sedan available in rear or all-wheel drive, and with three different engine options—two gasoline versions and one hybrid. The car also comes in standard or long-wheelbase versions. It seats five people, and sits above the Q50 in the Infiniti lineup. The Q70 is Infiniti's flagship sedan.

Overview

The 2017 Infiniti Q70 comes with three different engine options; a 3.7-liter V-6 engine rated for 330 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, a 5.6-liter V-8 that makes 420 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque (or 416 hp and 414 lb-ft with the Q70L) and a hybrid with a 3.5-liter V-6 and 360 net hp. All versions of the Infiniti Q70 get a seven speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control and a manual shift mode with Downshift Matching (when you use the paddles on the steering column).

The EPA rated the 2016 Infiniti Q70 with the 3.7-liter engine in rear-drive form at 18/26 mpg city/highway with the all-wheel-drive version good for 18/24 mpg. Go for the V-8 and 2016 models will get 16/24 mpg with rear-wheel drive and 16/23 with all-wheel drive. The Q70 hybrid improves those figures immensely, with 29/34 mpg. Ratings for the 2017 Infiniti Q70 haven't yet been released, but should be similar to these 2016 figures.

Safety

The Infiniti Q70 was a 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. with a Superior rating in front crash prevention (available ratings include basic, advanced, and superior).

Standard safety equipment on all 2017 Infiniti Q70 sedans includes, advanced airbag system with dual-stage supplemental front airbags with occupant classification sensors, front seat-mounted side airbags, roof mounted curtain side impact airbags for both front and rear seat occupants, front seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, LATCH system, and an emergency inside trunk release.

Available safety options include, brake operated pre-crash seat belts, blind spot warning and intelligent cruise control, back up collision intervention, distance control, and both predictive and forward collision warning. The 2017 Infiniti Q70 also offers a multi-camera parking system.

What We Think

We drove the Infiniti Q70L and a Q70S with the 5.6-liter engine back in 2014 (as a 2015 model). We liked the smoother transmission, the improved steering, and better stability control in both cars, though it was still not as good as its German competitors in the corners.

One thing we loved about the Q70 was its ability to shred tires—particularly in its RWD layout. We also loved that all the electronic nannies can be turned off in the Q70 to offer even more hooning potential.

Overall, we think that the Germans still do it better than the Japanese but that the long wheelbase option makes it an interesting entrance in the luxury market.

Cool Fact

You can still turn off all the traction/stability control nannies in the 2017 Infiniti Q70.
