The new 2017 Infiniti Q70L 5.6 is an automobile that features luxury by design. The controls and instrumentation are positioned for instinctive reach and use. It’s a rather ‘touchy-feely’ kind of deal, as each component is crafted for recognition by shape and feel, ensuring that the driver connects with the vehicle intuitively, by touch alone. The Infiniti designers conducted extensive research to determine the ideal feeling for key interior surfaces. The seats and console feel impossibly soft – the perfect balance of texture and tension. Frequently contacted areas are clad in a uniquely crafted fabric that is rewarding to your every touch.

Japanese Ash wood trim infuses the interior of the Q70L with a modern approach to timeless Japanese artistry. Console, dash, and door pieces are then hand-sanded, hand-polished, and hand-buffed to create a rare luster.

As you approach the Q70L, it senses the available Intelligent Key (I-Key) and responds with the radiant glow of sequenced exterior and interior lights. The I-Key also remembers driver’s seat, steering wheel, and side-view mirror positions, and the last used audio, climate, and navigation settings. A list of just a few of the many standard features include:

• 20-hp 5.6-liter V8

• Climate-controlled front seats

• INFINITI Navigation System

• Bose® 10-speaker Premium Audio.

• INFINITI Connection™ telematics system .

• Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection

• Front and Rear Sonar System

The Q70L’s filled with luxury features galore but that doesn’t mean the practicality’s been overlooked. Our reviewer was not only impressed with the car’s exquisite amenities, but it also features plenty of leg room in the rear area, for passengers or maybe just for traveling while hitting the highway for a long drive.
