The 2015 Infiniti Q70 flagship sedan will launch later this year with new styling, new technologies and even a brand-new model, as Nissan's luxury division looks to turn around a recent spate of weak sales months.
Setting the pace will be the 2015 Infiniti Q70 proper, now wearing a refreshed exterior design inspired by the look of the Infiniti Q50 sport sedan. Perhaps most noticeable is the new exterior illumination package that will be standard on the 2015 Infiniti Q70 and include LED headlamps, taillights, fog lights and mirror-mounted turn-signal indicators. However, the car also gains a more premium appearance from its revised front and rear fascias, while Infiniti colorists are introducing three new exterior finishes. Hermosa Blue, Chestnut Bronze and Graphite Shadow are new to the palette, and a striking Pearl finish will be available as a premium upgrade for the current Moonlight White.
Two more cutting-edge driver assistance features will premiere on the 2015 Infiniti Q70 as well: Predictive Forward Collision Warning and an Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection; blind-spot, lane-keeping and rear collision-mitigation technologies also remain on the menu, as do a choice of two powerplants, both hooked to a seven-speed automatic with manual-shifting capabilities. The standard motivator is a 3.7-liter V6 with outputs of 330 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, and a premium 5.0-liter V8 can up the ante with 420 horses and 417 lb.-ft. of twisting power.
The rear-wheel-drive 2015 Infiniti Q70 opens at $49,850, with the brand's intelligent all-wheel-drive system pushing the cost to $52,000.
