The new 2015 Infiniti Q70, which will compete with the likes of the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, is currently arriving at the brand’s dealership nationwide. The lineup will consist of the Infiniti Q70, Q70 Hybrid and the new Q70L.
“The new Infiniti Q70L broadens Infiniti’s offerings for those who desire enhanced spaciousness and versatility, appealing to the sporty sedan fan that also requires executive levels of interior room,” Infiniti said in a statement. “The additional 5.9 inches in the wheelbase not only increases the knee and leg space in the back, but also greatly augments the athletic presence of the sedan.”
Both the standard and the long wheelbase models are offered with a 3.7 liter or a 5.7 liter engine. The 3.7 liter V6 engine produces a strong 330-hp while the 5.6 liter V8 produces a total of 420-hp. Both models are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission.
The 2015 Infiniti Q70 Hybrid (only available as a rear-wheel-drive model) is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine mated to a 50 kW electric motor along for a total of 360-hp and 358 lb-ft of torque.
The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP)* for the 2015 Infiniti Q70 starts at $49,850, and climbs to a range-topping $67,050.
