Excellent value in a great car!
jhawk , 4/15/2018
If brand name is all that matters then yes please overpay for a German brand. I had a 2015 AWD Q50 premium and decided after 2 1/2 years to trade in for something a bit bigger. The dealership gave me an awesome deal on a 2017 Q70S AWD. A deal so good actually that I ended up paying less for this than I did for my Q50. Now I know this car does not fully compete against the finest midsize luxury cars but infiniti is always running deals on these so you have to put it in perspective. Infiniti does need to redesign to keep up with the latest but it is still is a fine and comfortable driving car. You have to put it in perspective when it comes to value: I paid $42,000 for a $57,000 stickered car and for that money with AWD, a sport package, bose radio, heated and cooled seats, navigation, sunroof, great seats, a comfortable ride and many standard features it was a no brainer. Not many cars you could consider for this price point that are this fun to drive and luxurious! The Q70 handles well, has good power, is very comfortable, good space for 4 people and is an attractive looking car and has AWD. For that type of money you can’t really ask for much more...plus this car is more fun to drive and more pleasant than the Q50 (more communication in the steering, quieter/more comfortable when cruising and has a better sound from the engine). Overall an great car at a excellent value price!

More about the 2017 INFINITI Q70

The 2017 Infiniti Q70 is a midsize five-passenger luxury sedan that's been around the block and is outshined by more recent competitors.

As with other Infinitis, the Q70's features are mostly grouped into packages, with few available stand-alone options. Several variants have been added over its life cycle, though it's still pretty straightforward to find the one that's best for you.

The Q70 is offered as a base model or long-wheelbase Q70L guise, and the two engines available also denote the trim level. There's also a Q70 Hybrid that's offered only with rear-wheel drive. The entry-level 3.7 offers loads of value since the Premium package is offered at zero cost on this trim level. This package includes a heap of features such as leather, navigation, heated and ventilated seats, parking alerts, voice controls, a heated steering wheel and Bose premium audio. Additional features are available in packages: the Sport, Technology and Premium Select packages group goodies logically. If features are more important than acceleration, the 3.7 is a no-brainer among Q70s.

The price premium for the 5.6 trim level is hefty considering it grants you the 5.6-liter V8 and little more. No features are exclusive to the 5.6 compared with the 3.7. In light of that, the V8 is a pricey engine. The Premium Select package now appears to be unavailable on this trim level, having instead moved to the Q70L instead for 2017. Go figure. Aside from that, long-wheelbase Q70L models are largely carbon copies of their base model analogues when it comes to features.

Q70 Hybrid models start between 3.7 and 5.6 models, yet can't be had with all-wheel drive and aren't available with some of the packages offered on the rest of the Q70 range. In that respect the hybrid is something of an odd man out, but it does deliver a solid improvement in fuel economy.

Outside of the hybrid model, perhaps the biggest decision to make among 2017 Infiniti Q70s comes down to how much you value passing power. You'll pay handsomely if you heed the siren song of V8 thrust.
