The 2017 Infiniti Q70 arrives on the market as a replacement for the great Infiniti M. Most of you will probably be disappointed when you hear that the new Infiniti Q70 hasn’t changed to such an extent and that it stays loyal to its predecessor in most aspects. However, the 2017 model won’t come to the market as a photocopy of its predecessor; there will be some minor but yet important changes. There will be some minor refreshments in the form of a new, long wheelbase but the most important one arrives in the form of new engine option, hybrid option precisely. Let’s check other details about the 2017 Infiniti Q70.
Infiniti’s M came to the market as their flagship sedan, but it appeared that it wasn’t good enough to compete against other vehicle in its class like Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Lexus LS because it lacked size and presence. The new wheelbase seems a great solution for the company. The vehicle will be available as a regular Infiniti Q70 and Infiniti Q70L. The Infiniti Q70 L is 6 inches longer than the standard model, and more importantly it offers 5.5 inches legroom for the rear passengers. Besides the new wheelbase, it is obvious that the front and rear end of the car have been refreshed. The front gets new grille and redesigned LED headlights. The back of the car gets new taillights. You will also notice new side-view mirrors. The standard 2017 Infiniti Q70 arrives with a set of 18 inch aluminum-alloy wheels, while higher trim levels get 20 inch wheels.
There are also a lot of refreshments inside of the cabin.

There are uniquely designed seats with better side bolstering, which are extremely comfortable and supportive. The front seats are 10-way power heated and the steering wheel is also heated. As standard equipment, you get USB port, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation and a great 10-speaker Bose audio system.
