2017 Infiniti Q70 review

2017 Infiniti Q70

By

The newest 2017 Infiniti Q70 has just been announced at the New York Auto show this year and is bound to appear on the market by next year. There are some controversies with the release of this model as fans feel that it was not upgraded enough, aside from some changes it is essentially similar to what we have seen in the M Sedan model. The critics have mainly said that this is a model that does not updated itself very much and is essentially the same thing that Infiniti has been looking since its 2010 model.

But all that aside, even the older versions of the Infiniti Q70 were very good looking vehicles and we had a very good looking car that was perhaps the best looking one in its class. So it actually makes sense why the desire to keep a lot of things unchanged has remained. We feel that this new 2017 still looks great as it is not wise the change the thing that makes the car good in the first place.

But the innovations are still there, particularly in the technology department as the Q70 has received a full package of modern upgrades and additions. Aside from that there is the longer wheelbase which consequently makes the car larger on the inside and brings about more space and comfort for the people on the inside.

The Infiniti Q70 with a longer wheelbase is a staple for the Chinese market and it is going to be initially released there as the demands of that market are greater than anywhere else. But the people in America are also going to get a chance to see this model as it is later on being released overseas as well. Keep reading the review and find out the latest specs and details about the car.

Exterior

As we mentioned that there are not many updates to the 2017 Infiniti Q70 visible, there is still going to be something that is going to get your attention to the car. The redesign mainly focuses on lighting and adds new lamps to the front and rear of the car. There is a new and very recognizable arrangement of LEDs found in the front and back of the car and makes the car seem even more exclusive. There is a new double-arch grille which dominates the front side of the car and also a new bumper design which has some inserted fog lamps. The side of the car has a very nice looking character line which starts from the front and goes all the way to the back of the car.

The back of the car has also gained some changes and the most novel one is the flattened diffuser in the rear. The bumper is a bit more slender compared to the one seen before and enables the car to look more elongated in the rear end. There are various chrome details which make the look even more exciting but the Sport model is highly distinguishable compared to its base version. It adds a more aggressive appearance and uses 20-inch wheels as well.

Interior

The interior of the 2017 Infiniti Q70 has more to it that the exterior and features a traditional driver-orientated setting that we are used to seeing from this brand. There are of course some premium leather and fine stitching additions made which is combined with advanced build quality t make this model as exclusive it can get. There are some added features and thanks to teh longer wheelbase they were successfully incorporated into the car as there was added room for them.

The Q70 has a class leading 5.9-inches of room and has the most amount of legroom than any other vehicle in the segment, which in turn maximizes the comfort and entering and exiting from the car. There is even a rear door auto-close offered for the first time in the vehicle and is a unique kind of a feature made here. There are many rear seat amenities offered with this model and besides the heated seats, it offers personal reading lights and 12v power outlets.

Improving overall quality of the interior is the fact that NVH levels have been lowered which is made possible through additional insulation. This makes the car more than quiet and brings the level of noise and sounds to a minimum. Also, Active Noise Canceling enables the reduction of white noise as well. And finally, there is the Bose Studio Surround stereo system with16-speakers being offered as well.
