Think big and sedan and you are bound to think of 2019 Infiniti Q70 with good reason; either way, when we heard the news of the imminent launch of the next generation or so we hope, we decided to get our hands on all the information that we could locate on the new model right away. From the leaked images to interviews and after vetting all the rumours swirling around, we got all the info we needed for our review. Let’s state right away, that we were blown away by the images which hardly do the car any justice but that’s us; so let’s tackle the car and take a closer look at it, shall we?
The 2019 Infiniti Q70 is definitely rolling out soon but what we can confirm is that it will not be a new generation but the same one with a few changes. That is a tad disappointing given the fact that there are a lot of new entrants to the mid-size luxury sedan segment this year and Infiniti’s competitors have already launched their next generation. So one hopes that Infiniti sees a brand new design for the next year for it just does not stack up against the competition as effectively as it could have done.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Infiniti Q70 comes with the same design but with a few changes; the same design carries over to this year from last year but comes with a slightly modified front fascia along with more chrome accents to the grille and it also features slimmed-down LED headlights with cornering. What this car has going for it though is that despite all the critiques about the design being outdated, it is still one of the longest sedans on the market which is a big plus.
It comes with a larger wheelbase which is good, and you can opt for larger wheels with the new model and even go for a sportier suspension but the current one works just fine and should be able to provide you with a smooth ride. It also comes with rear wheel drive but you can always opt for the all-wheel drive which should enable you to drive this car even in choppy weather.
The side panels are the same and the rear end gets the same treatment as the front end; chances to the exterior are minimal at best and in all fairness, you can only classify these as cosmetic changes. One hopes that next year, this model will get a new generation that packs in more power and an updated design to boot.
The 2019 Infiniti Q70 comes with a slightly revamped interior, the dashboard and console curve well and wrap snugly around the driver, with the instrument cluster parked right front and centre within easy access. It also comes with plush leather upholstery, power adjustable heated/ cooled seats as well as dual climate control along with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment and display system as well as Bose audio system. The new model also comes with advanced safety measures such as adaptive cruising, a proactive package with an anti-collision warning, blind spot monitoring and much more.
Engine Detail, Release date, Price:
The 2019 Infiniti Q70 comes with rear wheel drive but it also provides for an optional all-wheel drive.
