The Smaller Side of Midsize Luxury

Known as the M37/M56 until Infiniti's wholesale nomenclature revamp for 2014, the Q70 is one of the smaller entries in the midsize luxury sedan segment but also among the most fun to drive. In addition to a well-regarded V6, the performance-oriented Infiniti Q70 also offers a big V8, the option of all-wheel drive, and for more interior space, a long-wheelbase model that offers an additional 5.6 inches of rear legroom.

Driving It

From our 2016 Infiniti Q70 full review: "Though it's hardly the most efficient powertrain, the Infiniti Q70’s optional V8 can hustle you along back country roads and long stretches of highway comfortably. The standard 3.7-liter V6 is no slouch, either."

Hybrid Option

The hybrid setup puts out 360 horsepower, and achieves 29 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway. When it was introduced, this system earned a Guinness World Record as the world's fastest-accelerating full hybrid car.

Build and Price

Pricing for the Infiniti Q70 starts just above $50,000 and tops out at just under $77,000. Build and price your own 2016 Infiniti Q70 at KBB.com to unlock its Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.

Ask the Owners

Q70 owner and KBB.com visitor Metis offered these insights about Infiniti's largest luxury sedan: "The 16 speaker Bose surround sound is as good as any I have heard in a Car. The Nav was much easier to get used to then many others I test drove. Bumper to Bumper warranty to 100,000 kilometres is excellent. Not the fastest luxury sedan out there, but for sure one of the most comfortable highway cruisers I have ever been in." Read more Infiniti Q70 consumer reviews.
