- Noisy diesel models
- Below average boot
What's the INFINITI Q70 like?
It comes hugely well-equipped as standard, with just about everything anyone could wish for already on the list.
There are three engine choices – a 3.7-litre V6 petrol with 320bhp and 26mpg, a 3.5-litre V6 petrol-electric hybrid with 358bhp and 45mpg, and a 2.2-litre diesel with 170bhp and 58mpg.
The diesel is good for an 8.7-second sprint to 60mph and a top speed of 137mph, while both the hybrid and the 3.7-litre V6 reach a claimed 155mph, and accelerate to 60mph in an excellent 5.2 or 6.3 seconds.
The petrol 3.7-litre is by far the thirstiest of the three, and so for the best combination of performance and economy. The hybrid is very good and also comes with standard four-wheel drive.
They all have a standard 7-speed automatic gearbox – which is just as it should be for such a top line car – and there’s a manual setting for those who prefer to ring the changes themselves.
All are supremely hushed and refined, with no engine or suspension noise and just a slight swishing from the passing air thanks to double glazing all around. Road noise only becomes a slight issue in diesel models.
Driving Experience and Practicality
Comfort is truly excellent over any kind of distance and over all kinds of roads, matching similar cars in the same executive bracket without a problem.
There's plenty of space and very good legroom in the back, so that two adults can travel in style.
Inside the Q70, all is elegance and top-drawer quality, with electrically adjusted, heated and cooled leather armchairs front and back.
They also have stability control, an alarm system, sat nav, traction control, LED headlights, multi-function leather covered steering wheel, a superb sound system, and Bluetooth that includes a phone connection and music streaming.
INFINITI has a very good reliability record over the years - any problems should be fixed with minimum fuss and bother.
