Which Q70 does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating6.6 / 10
We love a big Japanese sedan with a V8 as much as anyone, and the 2019 Infiniti Q70 offers one of the biggest. But stacked up against the competition, the Q70 falls flat regardless of how it's equipped. The current Q70 originally hit the market way back in 2011 under the M56 moniker, and though it's received some updates over the years, it simply hasn't kept pace with competitors.
While it's roomy and comfortable, the interior design is undeniably dated, and the technology on offer feels positively Precambrian when compared to what you'll find in the latest Mercedes-Benz or BMW. The Q70's ride also isn't very refined, especially if you opt for the larger wheels and sportier suspension, which make it downright choppy. Unfortunately, passing on these upgrades has a noticeable impact on the car's handling capability.
There's a lot of strong competition in the midsize luxury sedan market, from newcomers such as Genesis to old hands such as Mercedes-Benz, and most of the alternatives have more to recommend them than the Q70.
2019 INFINITI Q70 configurations
The 2019 Infiniti Q70 is available in two main trim levels: 3.7 Luxe and 5.6 Luxe. The numbers indicate what type of engine is under the hood. A long-wheelbase Q70L is available with either engine and similar equipment. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. A seven-speed automatic is the sole transmission available, while a variety of optional packages provide for a degree of customization.
The base Q70 3.7 Luxe receives motivation from a 3.7-liter V6 (330 horsepower, 270 pound-feet of torque). Standard features include a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and power-adjustable and heated front seats. A no-cost Essential package (which you can expect to be equipped) further adds a heated steering wheel, parking sensors, a heated steering wheel, a top-down parking camera system, leather upholstery, an 8-inch touchscreen display, a navigation system, and a 10-speaker Bose premium audio system.
The optional Premium Select Edition package for the 3.7 Luxe adds dark exterior trim, a rear spoiler, 20-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, a suedelike headliner and premium leather upholstery.
Q70s bearing the 5.6 Luxe badge pack a 5.6-liter V8 (420 hp, 417 lb-ft of torque). These models include all the items of the 3.7 Luxe.
Long-wheelbase variants are differentiated by the Q70L name. These longer models offer an extra 5.5 inches of rear legroom, a rear 12-volt outlet, power soft-close rear doors and heated rear seats.
For both Q70 trims, the ProActive package adds advanced safety features including forward collision warning, front and rear collision mitigation with automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring and intervention, lane departure warning and intervention, and adaptive cruise control. For Q70L trims, the Sensory package adds a 16-speaker Bose stereo, a power rear sunshade, and unique interior trim including upgraded rear-seat upholstery.
The Sport package is available on both standard-wheelbase Q70 trims. It adds 20-inch wheels, a different fascia, upgraded brakes, a firmer suspension, a 16-speaker Bose stereo, a power rear sunshade and magnesium paddle shifters. Long-wheelbase variants can opt for the Performance Tire and Wheel package, which includes 20-inch wheels and larger, more capable brakes.

Infiniti Q70 vs. the competition
2019 Infiniti Q70
2018 Infiniti Q50
Infiniti Q70 vs. Infiniti Q50
The Q50 is the Q70's little brother, in every sense: It's smaller, nimbler and newer. The technology on hand in the Q50 is a generational leap from the Q70. The Q50 lacks the Q70's plush seats and grunty V8, but it's still a comfortable and quick car in its own right. It's also less expensive. Overall, we like the Q50 more.
Infiniti Q70 vs. Lexus GS 350
The GS 350 is a sporty midsize sedan with a strong V6 engine on offer and a more modern cabin than the Q70. Of course, it comes with its own tech frustrations because of Lexus' woeful infotainment controller. Still, the Lexus wins out because of its more refined ride and handling characteristics. The GS range also offers several powertrain options beyond the V6, including a hybrid and an excellent V8 in the GS F.
Infiniti Q70 vs. Lexus LS 500
The LS 500 is the flagship of the Lexus lineup, an opulent full-size luxury sedan powered by a strong turbocharged V6 engine or a more efficient hybrid powertrain. Its interior design is on the cutting edge, although its infotainment interface can be frustrating to use. The experience the LS 500 offers is simply on another level from the dated Q70, but you'll pay handsomely for the upgrade.

2019 INFINITI Q70 for Sale
The 2019 Infiniti Q70 is a five-passenger midsize luxury sedan with an excellent available V8 that's otherwise showing its age, and it's 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 pretty straightforward to find the one that's best for you.
The Q70 is offered as a base model or in long-wheelbase Q70L guise, and the two engines available also denote the trim level. The entry-level 3.7 Luxe offers loads of value since the Essential 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 a variety of packages. If features are more important than acceleration, the 3.7 Luxe is a no-brainer among Q70s.
The price premium for the Q70 5.6 Luxe trim level is hefty considering it grants you the 5.6-liter V8 and little more. No features are exclusive to the 5.6 Luxe compared with the 3.7 Luxe. In light of that, the V8 is a pricey engine. The Premium Select package is unavailable on this trim level. Aside from that, long-wheelbase Q70L models are largely carbon copies of their base-model analogs when it comes to features.
Perhaps the biggest decision to make among 2019 Infiniti Q70 trims comes down to how much you value passing power. The V8 engine adds just about all the character you'll get out of the Q70, but you'll pay handsomely if you heed the siren song of V8 thrust. If you think this is the luxury sedan for you, let Edmunds help find the perfect 2019 Infiniti Q70 for your needs.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 INFINITI Q70?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
