About the 2016 Infiniti Q70
As Infiniti’s halo sedan, the Infiniti Q70 embraces the essence of all things Infiniti – style, performance, luxury, craftsmanship and technology.
Both the standard and long wheelbase 3.7 and Q70 5.6 models are offered with rear-wheel drive or Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. The Q70 3.7 and Q70L 3.7 feature a 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 engine, while the Q70 5.6 and Q70L 5.6 offers 5.6-liter V8 rated at a 420 horsepower for the Q70 and 416 horsepower for the Q70L. All Q70 models are equipped with a standard 7-speed automatic transmission.
At the core of the 2015 Q70 Hybrid (rear-wheel drive only) is the advanced Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid™ system – an advanced one-motor, two-clutch parallel hybrid system. Its precise, high-speed motor control technology, enabled by the powerful Lithium-ion battery, allows power to be delivered directly to the 7-speed automatic transmission. The Infiniti Q70 Hybrid’s exhilarating driving performance also greatly benefits from use of Infiniti’s proven 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine, which paired with the 50 kW electric motor, provides a hybrid system net power of 360 horsepower. Torque figures are equally impressive, with the V6’s 258 lb-ft of toque combining with the electric motor’s immediately available 214 lb-ft of torque to provide strong performance.
The Q70’s refined exterior features Infiniti’s signature LED headlights, which evoke inner intelligence and human insight, making an immediate and indelible first impression. The distinctive headlights accentuate the double arch grille, which offers a three-dimensional look, due to the elaborate detail of the high-quality waved mesh finish and chrome surround. The same solid feel is echoed in the front bumper with integrated LED fog lights, giving the Q70 a dignified presence on road. In the rear, LED combination lights help highlight the Q70’s sporty stance. A chrome rear finisher adds a touch of class to the entire rear view.
Standard exterior features include automatic on/off LED headlights with windshield wiper interlock, a power sliding tinted glass moonroof with one-touch open/close, tilt feature and sliding sunshade, power-folding heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signal with reverse tilt-down feature, rain-sensing variable intermittent front windshield wipers and courtesy lamps built into the outside door handles, rear window defroster with timer, dual exhaust with polished tips and auto-trunk cincher. An Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) with auto-leveling headlights is available as part of the Technology Package. The optional Sport Package features a specially designed front bumper that gives an even lower and wider stance, and 20-inch wheels and tires.
Reflecting the sensuous lines of the exterior, the well-appointed and inviting interior features high-quality materials such as Japanese Ash wood trim, attention to detail, and user-centered technologies.
Standard technology equipment includes Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Infiniti Intelligent Key with Illuminated Push Button Ignition, HomeLink® Universal Transceiver and RearView Monitor. Other interior highlights include power windows with one-touch up/down and auto-reverse feature, power door locks with automatic locking feature, retained accessory power for windows and moonroof, and 6-speaker audio system.
Also standard on all 2015 Q70 models is Active Noise Control, which monitors cabin noise levels using two microphones in the Q70’s ceiling and generates “canceling” sound from four door speakers (and subwoofer for models equipped with a Bose® sound system) to reduce unpleasant engine harmonics.
While the Q70 is known to have a roomy interior, the additional 5.9 inches in the Q70L takes the extended sedan’s rear roominess beyond what competitors offer. Rear knee room is at a superior 32.5 inches in the Q70L, while rear leg room is at an outstanding 41.8 inches, so rear seat passengers can comfortably cross their legs. The excellent rear ingress and egress make traveling in the back of a premium sedan a more enjoyable experience for taller passengers. Additional standard features on the Q70L include rear door auto closure, rear reading lights, and a 12V rear power outlet. Rear heated seats are available with the Premium Package.
A number of equipment packages allow owners to custom fit their vehicles to their exact tastes, including Premium Package, Deluxe Touring Package, Sport Package, AWD Sport Package, Sport Touring Package, Technology Package, V8 LWB Deluxe Technology Package and Performance Tire & Wheel Package.
