Despite the age, this sedan is still a strong competitor in the segment of mid-size luxury cars. The original version came in 2011, so it seems obvious that a redesign should happen soon. However, latest reports suggest that the 2020 Infiniti Q70 definitely won’t feature more important changes and that we are about to wait for a complete overhaul for at least two more years. Until then, the Q70 will continue with its sleek silhouette and strong engines in the offer. It should arrive late in the year.
- Powerful engines
- Comfortable seats
- Attractive styling
- Outdated interior design
- Low mpg ratings
- Complicated infotainment system
For today’s industry standards, this is a quite old vehicle, especially for premium cars. Still, we have seen a facelift four years ago, so the current model is relatively up-to-date, at least in terms of aesthetics. On the other side, mechanics haven’t been changed a lot since the initial launch. The model rides on a familiar FM platform, characterized by RWD layout. Due to its age, driving characteristics aren’t on par with much younger competitors and powerful engines are probably the only thing that guarantees decent performances. On the other side, you can find quite opposite reviews about its handling and overall ride quality.
After one quick look, you will realize that this is a real premium car. Top-notch materials are all around the cabin. However, the 2020 Infiniti Q70 won’t deliver those modern premium lines, which is kinda expected, considering that this sedan rides since 2011. Another complaint goes to the infotainment system, which is pretty annoying to use. On the other side, seats are amazing. You can count on plenty of room and excellent support. Also, a list of standard equipment is pretty impressive. Some of the highlights are 8-inch infotainment system, navigation, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, moonroof etc.
One of the certain things about 2020 Infiniti Q70 is that you can count on plenty of power. Since the hybrid model has been dropped recently, the new model will come with just two familiar gasoline engines. Base models will feature a 3.7-liter V6 that delivers around 330 horsepower. An optional 5.6-liter V8 turns this sedan into a real performance car, considering that a max output goes all away up to 420 horsepower. When it comes to fuel economy, base V6 engine returns around 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, while the V8 is good for about 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
2020 Infiniti Q70 Release Date and Price
The upcoming model definitely won’t bring any important change so we have no doubt it will arrive in the usual time of year. In this case, that would mean late 2019. When it comes to the price, base models should go around $50,000.
