Where does the 2015 Infiniti Q70L 3.7 AWD fit in? With the market constantly evolving with trends and newer technology, aside from the typical comfort and practicality comes first objective, we now have fuel efficient yet powerful sedans, sedans that are actually fun to drive, as well as sedans filled to the brim with technology.
What Does the 2015 Infiniti Q70L 3.7 AWD Make for Itself?
The exterior looks of the 2015 Infiniti Q70L 3.7 AWD is done in a classic Infiniti mould, curves for a muscular look and angles for a bit of aggressiveness. The side profile of the Q70L thanks to its long nose and swooping angular headlights, makes it even look like a Mercedes Benz SLS, well from the nose to the A pillar anyway. The rear fender has these big bulges continuing to the rear along with that chunky C pillar that evoke a really muscular stance and makes the Q70 feel as if it’s Dave Batista wearing a tight-fitting tuxedo for the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere. Under the hood is a 3.7Liter V6 power plant putting out a decent 330hp paired to a 7 speed auto with manual shift ability putting power to all four wheels.
On the inside, the 2015 Q70L 3.7 AWD never disappoints when it comes to interior quality and comfort. The interior caries over the smooth lines and curves of the outside but feels as if the cabin is hugging you. To add to that executive look, wood accents are present all over the interior paired with ash leather and moderate chrome accents. Overall, the interior evokes class.
Driving the Q70L is a mixed experience. The AWD and 330hp offers grip and pulling power respectively and right out the bat, the Q70 is no doubt a quick luxury sedan. So is the quickness the trump card for Infinity to play to be able to make it stand out in the market? The answer is it’s not enough, the Q70 is indeed quick for getting in and out of traffic but the chassis is tuned for comfort that the faster you go on open roads, the less stable it gets, not uncontrollable but it gets some tremors and kind of lowers your confidence in the car’s handling capability, pair this with the awkwardly-weighted “speed sensitive” steering and you get a not-so-sporty ride.
The steering on the 2015 Infiniti Q70L 3.7 AWD is bad, at low speeds the wheel feels heavy and makes parking a chore. Driver aids get annoying but can thankfully be turned off. With the Ininiti Q70L relying mostly on the base comfort and luxury aspect of luxury sedans, the look and feel alone could make the Q70L a compelling buy, just don’t expect fun a driving experience.
