In Infiniti by Nathan Ehinger

Sometimes the trade-off to drive a large sedan is a serious lack of performance. You often have to take the comfort you want of a larger vehicle and give up agility and maneuverability to have this comfort. That’s not the case at all when it comes to the Infiniti Q70 and what it brings to the market for you to enjoy the ride. This sedan is one that makes it easy for you to have the drive you want and the comfort you need in a large vehicle that’s built to be the ride you’ve been looking for.

Too often we spend our time looking for large luxury sedans that are only a hair shy of being models made to come with a chauffeur up front. The Q70 isn’t that type of car at all. This is a car that puts the emphasis where you want it, on power and performance while bring you the equipment that will make a difference in your drive even at the base model. If you want the car that will carry you and your family in a luxury build that offers you the dynamic drive and quality that Infiniti has to offer, the Q70 is the right choice for you to drive.

As far as the power part of the equation the Q70 can be fitted with three different engines to give you the ride and equipment you need. All three of these engines us the same seven-speed automatic transmission that brings you steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The base engine is a 3.7-liter V6 which offers you 330 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. Next up is the 5.6-liter V8 engine that shows up with 420 horsepower and 417 lb.-ft. of torque. There is even a hybrid version of the Q70 that uses a 3.5-liter V6 plus a 50 kW electric motor to give you 360 net horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. All three powertrains offer you AWD and the two non-hybrid versions can be had with RWD instead if you choose.

If you visit your nearby Infiniti dealer for the Q70 you’ll see the new Premium Select Edition is now offered on the long wheelbase version of the Q70L. On the road this is a car that allows you to move through the corners smoothly and swiftly while feeling the car is planted and ready to be perfect for you to drive. Use the paddle shifters and enjoy the benefit of the fun of shifting the way you want to with this car.

As a large luxury car you expect comfort items to be offered and the Q70 starts out with some impressive items that make it possible for you to have the comfort you need. This car shows up with a leather interior, a seven-inch color display with an Around View Monitor, heated and ventilated front seats with ten-way power adjustment, push button starting, a heated steering wheel, a ten-speaker Bose audio system, USB and Bluetooth connectivity and heated rear seats to round out the comfort of this excellent large luxury sport sedan.

Moving up the trims to the options that you can add to this car you’ll see a list that brings in the long wheelbase and gives you extra rear seat room on the cabin, higher grade semi-aniline leather seating, a power rear sunshade, heated rear seats, a sport tuned suspension, a Bose surround sound system, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warnings, forward and reverse emergency braking and the Predictive Forward Collision Warning system to give you information two cars ahead to allow you to be better prepared from behind the wheel.

Comfort, agility, power, precision and the gorgeous build that Infiniti offers all make the Q70 a car that you can love to drive wherever you need to go. Let this impressive car be the right choice for you when you’re looking for a great drive and the perfect way to get where you need to go. Your car should be more fun for you and the Q70 from Infiniti is one of the most impressive and fun vehicles to drive on the large luxury sedan market.
