2019 Infiniti Q70

Pros: Impressively finished interior; brisk acceleration; athletic handling; excellent rear-seat legroom in Q70L model

Cons: Stop/start feature is rather clunky; ride is a bit stiffer than many premium-class cars; few standalone options—some desirable features come only in expensive packages

CG Says: The 2019 Infiniti Q70 drops its hybrid model, but is otherwise unchanged.  Q70 is a premium midsize sedan that is available in standard-length and extended-length “L” versions. (Infiniti also offers a smaller Q50 premium midsize sedan.) The 3.7 models are powered by a 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 engine, while 5.6 versions have a 420-horsepower 5.6-liter V8. Both powerplants are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. Available features include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and mitigation, obstacle-detection and intervention, surround-view camera, and steering-linked headlights. The Q70 is way outsold by most every class rival, perhaps for lacking the brand cachet of German competitors and striking a somewhat different ride/handling balance than they do. Even so, these Infinitis easily match most any alternative for acceleration, mechanical refinement, roominess, interior quality, and–especially in Sport Package guise–overall driving satisfaction. They deserve serious consideration, especially by those who don’t like following the herd. Likewise for the extended-length Q70L; for many shoppers, the significant increase in rear-seat room is worth the additional $1500-$1700 tariff.
