Infiniti Q70 Lease Deal
The 2017 Infiniti Q70 wears many hats for the Japanese luxury brand. It’s the line’s mid-sizer, but in a full-sizer’s clothes in long-wheelbase configuration. It’s a true hybrid (one of the few for Infiniti) but has a multitude of sport options.Our auto lease brokers guarantee you will be completely satisfied with this car lease special and to prove it, we are going to explain what makes this car so great.
Yep, it’s even a cold-weather car in all-wheel-drive configuration.
It earns a respectable 7.3 on our overall scale thanks to good features and a very good safety record, but it feels less than that because of its aged powertrains and relative styling.

Infiniti Q70 Styling and Performance
The 2017 Infiniti Q70 takes a different approach than mid-size luxury cars from America or Germany. It’s much curvier (even more pronounced in the long-wheelbase version) and voluptuous than those lithe cars. It’s a style that we can appreciate, and say it has aged well—but we’re starting to emphasize the word “aged” now.
Under the hood, the Q70 makes do with relatively old powertrains too. The base 3.7-liter V-6 manages 330 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, but it’s relatively gruff and needs help from standard active noise cancellation to cope.
The optional V-8 doesn’t boost performance so much as it smooths the edges. It makes 420 hp (416 hp with all-wheel drive) and doesn’t make the car feel outright quick, but does come with a classic V-8 soundtrack.
A hybrid is somewhere in between with a V-6 paired to a lithium-ion battery pack. We have our quibbles with this, but it helps the Q70 get up to 30 mpg combined, according to the EPA.
All Q70s come with a slick 7-speed automatic that is a great partner here—it even helps the V-6 stay composed and quiet. Both the V-6 and V-8 models can be equipped with all-wheel drive.
In any of these models, the suspension calibration is firm and athletic, yet just compliant enough. Steering is well-weighted and has fair turn-in feel, especially on rear-drive models. And for people who want even more, there’s an available sport package, adding 20-inch wheels, enhanced cooling, four-wheel steering, sport seats and steering wheel, and aluminum pedal trim.
Infiniti Q70 Quality, Safety, and Features
The Q70 is a true mid-sizer, but can be opulent in long-wheelbase form. Four adults shouldn’t have a problem fitting in the primary seats, and the Q70 isn’t as cramped as others in its class. The 14.9-cubic-foot trunk isn’t hugely capacious (there’s less room in the hybrid model too) but it’s enough for most gear.
This year, Infiniti has added the top-of-the-line Premium Select version to its long-wheelbase model, bringing in line the rest of the Q70 lineup after the range-topping edition was introduced last year.
We gave the Q70 an 8 out of 10 on our features scale based on the Premium Package option, which is a no-cost add-on for the car. Base cars without the package would score much lower, so we highly advise seeking out those cars. The Q70 gets much better if you spend more, including that Premium Select model.
Base cars are equipped with active noise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity, dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, keyless ignition, leather-trimmed seats and a six-speaker stereo. That’s not an entirely impressive list of features for a sedan that starts about $50,000, but we don’t expect to see many of those cars on the road anyway.
