New for 2018

With the exception of revised model naming (all non-hybrid models now include the word Luxe), new package naming, and the Infiniti InTouch single display now standard, the Q70 and Q70L are unchanged.

Vehicle Summary

The Q70 and Q70L are Infiniti's flagships sedans positioned above the Q50 sedan and Q60 coupe. The Q70L has the second highest starting price in the automaker's entire lineup, after the full-size QX80 SUV.

Overview

The 2018 Infiniti Q70 3.7 and Q70L 3.7 are powered by a 3.7-liter V-6 that produces 330 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque and comes with an EPA-rating of 18/25 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive and 18/24 mpg with AWD. The available 5.6-liter V-8 found in the Q70 5.6 churns out 420 hp and 417 lb-ft (416 hp, 414 lb-ft for the Q70L) and is rated at 16/24 mpg with rear-wheel drive and 16/23 mpg with AWD. The Q70 Hybrid utilizes a 302-hp, 258 lb-ft 3.5-liter V-6 paired to 67-hp, 214-lb-ft electric motor for a total combined output of 360 hp. The Hybrid is only available in rear-wheel drive and delivers 28/33 mpg. All engines are backed by a seven-speed automatic.

The Q70 comes standard with 18-inch wheels, LED fog lights and taillights, power sliding moonroof, leatherette upholstery, 10-way power adjustable heated front seats, a sequential welcome lighting illuminated entry system, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, genuine Japanese Ash wood interior accents, active noise cancellation, a 7.0-inch center display screen, Enhanced Intelligent Key memory settings, and an Infiniti analog clock.

For additional luxury, opt for the Premium package that includes Infiniti Navigation, an multi-camera parking system with Moving Object Detection, front and rear parking sensors, a Bose 10-speaker premium audio system, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. The Premium Select Edition package consists of Dark Chrome exterior trim, darkened lower rear bumper, rear spoiler, 20-inch wheels, suede-like headliner, aluminum interior trim, semi-aniline leather seating, contrast piping floor mats, illuminated door sills, and sport brakes.

Safety

The NHTSA has yet to conduct its full array of crash evaluations, but 2018 Infiniti Q70 did received four out of five stars for the frontal and rollover crash tests. The 2017 Infiniti Q70 is considered a 2017 Top Safety Pick from the IIHS because the sedan received the highest rating of Good in all five crash tests and the highest rating of superior for front crash prevention. The Superior rating was issued because the sedan properly warned the driver of a possible collision, avoided a 12 mph collision, and reduced a 25 mph collision by 22 mph thanks to the Forward Emergency Braking system found in the Technology package. The Technology package also includes the remaining driver assist features - blind spot warning, blind spot intervention, Intelligent Cruise Control (adaptive), forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, and back-up collision intervention.

What We Think

In our First Drive review of the standard- and long-wheelbase versions of the 2015 Infiniti Q70S 5.6, we liked the improved ride in the long-wheelbase version and the huge backseat the sedan provides. When driving the car, the recalibrated transmission and steering were much improved. Sportiness was good but not as much as other rivals. We liked the new styling but the technology inside was a little outdated. "To me, the GS and the CTS are still the sports sedans to beat. Let's not forget that not only is the new CTS-V on the horizon, so is the GS F. However, the biggest Infiniti sedan does drive much better than the car it replaces."

In our First Drive review of the Q70L, we said, "No matter how much you spend on a Q70, the center-stack screen is 7 inches, plenty big if your daily driver predates the march toward gigantic Tesla Model S-size screens but not so big if you just test drove a Lexus GS with its 12.3-inch screen. I'm also looking forward to seeing an instrument cluster screen with better graphics and more info or an available head-up display. Better fuel economy would be a plus, too."

At the end of our review we said, "When passenger space is more important than fuel economy, the Q70L should rise toward the top of your search. Avoid those flashy 20-inch wheels, and you're left with a somewhat exclusive sub-$60,000 luxury sedan with a back seat [few others in the segment can match]."

Cool Fact

The long-wheelbase version offers an additional 5.6 inches of rear seat space.
