The 2015 Q70’s revised exterior includes new front and rear fascias, new grille design, Infiniti signature LED headlights, LED taillights, LED fog lights and side rear view mirrors with integrated LED turn signals. In addition, two new exterior colours have been added: Hermosa Blue and Chestnut Bronze.

“The New Infiniti Q70’s V6 engine makes it powerful and it gives you a better driving experience. Besides that, it has a sleek, expressive exterior design with unexpected cabin roominess and inviting interior with genuine Japanese Ash wood trim. Being the bigger brother of the Infiniti Q50, the New Q70 is another option for customers who are not just looking for a sedan that signifies the art of luxury but also a car that focuses on the comfort and safety of both driver and passengers”, said Mr. Kevin Teng, Managing Director, Wearnes Automotive Pte Ltd (Infiniti). 

“We aim to offer to those who won’t settle for ordinary. To those who live, breathe extraordinary and dare to be different; reach for the exceptional with the New Infiniti Q70,” said Mr. Michael Cope, Senior Regional Manager, Asia & Oceania, Infiniti Motor Ltd.

Refined Flagship Styling

The 2015 Infiniti Q70’s revised exterior brings it closer in look and feel to the recently introduced Infiniti Q50 sports sedan. The new dramatic design gives the premium sedan an even more upscale image. The front of the Q70 includes new LED headlights, new double-arch grille with high-quality waved mesh finish and chrome surround, new front bumper and 2

integrated LED fog lights. The redesigned rear of the 2015 Q70 features new LED combination lights, new trunk lid shape and chrome rear finisher.

As in previous years, the Q70’s multi-layered exterior combines balanced, rear-wheel drive proportions and stance with a long, low hood and high rear deck to create an efficient aerodynamic shape – while also providing a roomy cabin. The Q70’s sporty appearance is highlighted by the deep body shape of the fenders and doors, which give it a powerful look unlike anything on the road. The wave-style doors are constructed from aluminium for lighter weight, despite the material’s difficult formability. The stamping dies for each door are hand polished to maintain their precision and every door undergoes an exacting human inspection, providing a handcrafted level of quality.

Contributing to the low coefficient of drag of just 0.27 and zero lift front and rear are a series of aerodynamic enhancers, including front tyre deflectors, engine under cover, centre floor cover, rear tyre deflectors, exhaust cover, floor side fairings and rear diffuser.

Key standard features include leather, climate-controlled front seats, Bose 2-channel, 10-speaker Premium Audio system, speed sensitive volume control, Rear View Monitor, Infiniti hard drive system, streaming audio via Bluetooth, Infiniti Voice Recognition, Infiniti Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, power sliding glass tinted sunroof, dual exhaust with polished tips, power-folding heated outside mirrors with reverse tilt-down feature and integrated LED turn signals, rain-sensing variable intermittent front windshield wipers and courtesy lamps built into the outside door handles.

The 2015 Infiniti Q70 is available in six exterior colours: Hermosa Blue, Chestnut Bronze, Malbec Black, Liquid Platinum, Storm Front Grey and Moonlight White.

An Interior to Enjoy

Inside the stunning exterior, the focus of the interior design is centred on the individual driving the car. The goal of the Infiniti Q70 interior is to present an elegant yet functional design that combines artistry with precision, comfort with innovation – all in support of enhancing driving performance and passenger enjoyment.

The instrument panel, for example, features Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges, gear-like rings on the instrument cluster meters, an 8.0-inch colour vehicle information display and Infiniti analogue clock. Leather-appointed, heated 10-way power driver and front passenger’s seats including 2-way power lumbar support are standard, along with a dual occupant memory system for the driver’s seat, steering wheel and outside mirrors – which 3 can be linked to the individual Intelligent Keys. In addition, each Intelligent Key remembers the last used climate control and audio settings. An entry/exit assist system for the driver’s seat and steering wheel, climate controlled front seats, sequential welcome lighting illuminated entry system and dual-zone automatic temperature also contribute to the Q70’s outstanding level of standard luxury appointments.

Standard technology equipment includes BluetoothHands-free Phone System, Infiniti Intelligent Key with Illuminated Push Button Ignition and Rear View Monitor. Other interior highlights include a large centre console, power windows with one-touch up/down, power door locks with automatic locking feature, power trunk release, retained accessory power for windows and sunroof, and Bose2-channel 10-speaker premium audio system , USB Connection Port for iPodinterface and other compatible devices, steering wheel audio controls and speed-sensitive volume control.


Also standard on all 2015 Q70 models is Active Noise Control, which generates “cancelling” sound from four door speakers (and subwoofer for models equipped with a Bose® sound system) to reduce unpleasant engine harmonics. The cabin noise levels are monitored by two microphones located in the Q70’s ceiling, with no action needed from the driver and passengers except to enjoy the quiet, comfortable cabin.

Other standard features also include: Infiniti Hard Drive System with 8.0-inch WVGA colour touch-screen display and Streaming Audio via Bluetooth, Bose2-channel 10-speaker premium audio system, climate-controlled front seats and Rear Sonar System.


The Infiniti Q70 also features semi-aniline leather – full-grain leather that contains a small amount of surface coating allowing the natural character of the leather to show through. The seats are soft and firm, like premium sofa material, and offered in the Java colour. Also the Infiniti Q70 has specially developed soft touch material for the armrests, door inserts, centre console and kneepads. The special genuine White Ash wood trim has been enhanced with real silver powder (Japanese Ash wood trim is standard on Q70 models).

A total of four interior colours are offered – Graphite, Stone, Wheat and Java (availability varies with option packages).

Advanced Powerplants, a Naturally Dynamic Driving Feel

The 2015 Infiniti Q70’s 2.5-litre V6 engine is equipped with the Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). 4

One of the most formidable engines Infiniti has ever built, this powerful and responsive 2.5-litre V6 delivers a thrilling performance. It produces a stirring 219 horsepower and boasts 253 Nm of torque to produce a torrent of power that is delivered with the polish and precision to suit virtually any driving scenario you might encounter or excitement you might desire.

All 2015 Infiniti Q70 models come standard with Infiniti’s refined 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC) and manual shift mode with Downshift Rev Matching, which allows for sportier shifts during spirited driving. Solid magnesium paddle shifters are also included in the Sport model.

A unique feature of the 2015 Q70 is Infiniti Drive Mode Selector, an integrated control system that allows drivers to select from four driving modes, depending on mood or driving conditions, with a dial switch located on the centre console. Each mode, Standard, Eco, Sport or Snow, adjusts throttle sensitivity and transmission mapping to help optimise performance.

The Q70 utilises Infiniti’s advanced FM (Front Mid-ship) platform, which positions the engine behind the front axle, resulting in an optimised front-to-rear weight balance. Laser welding is performed at critical locations to help enhance lateral bending stiffness, torsional stiffness and suspension mounting point stiffness (versus the previous design).

The Infiniti Q70 suspension features an independent double-wishbone design in front and multi-link independent system in the rear, along with front and rear stabiliser bars. The rear suspension geometry has been designed to provide a quiet, comfortable ride.

The Infiniti Q70’s large diameter wheels and tyres are positioned out near the corners of the vehicle, helping to enhance performance. Standard 18-inch aluminium-alloy wheels and 245/50R18 all-season performance tyres are offered on all models.

Every 2015 Q70 utilises standard 4-wheel power-assisted vented disc brakes (12.6-inch front, 12.1-inch rear) with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).

The steering system is an electronically controlled vehicle-speed-sensing variable-assist power rack-and-pinion design. Every Q70 includes Infiniti’s advanced Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS). VDC automatically adjusts brake pressure and engine torque during certain situations where the vehicle is near its handling 5

limit, helping the driver to maintain control of the vehicle. The system utilises the Q70’s VDC system to help improve cornering feel by automatically applying the brakes so that load is increased on the front wheels. The system also modulates engine torque.

Advanced Safety and Security Systems

The Infiniti Q70 is available with a number of innovative technologies, including Infiniti’s Lane Departure Warning (LDW) 1 and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) systems1.

The LDW and LDP systems use a small camera installed behind the windshield to detect lane markers in front of the vehicle, calculate its position relative to those lane markers and warn the driver of a potential unintended lane departure with a visual display and audible buzzer. If the driver does not return the vehicle back toward the centre of the travel lane, the LDP system assists the driver with a gentle application of the brakes.

Also offered are Blind Spot Warning (BSW) 1 and Blind Spot Intervention(BSI) 1 systems. BSW illuminates an indicator light if another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area. If the driver then uses the turn signal, the indicator flashes and an audible warning sounds.


If the vehicle gets close to the lane marker and another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area, the indicator flashes, an audible warning sounds, and selective braking is applied to one side of the vehicle to help the driver bring the vehicle back to the centre of the driving lane. BSI operates regardless of turn signal usage.

Newly available for 2015 is Around View® Monitor1, which shows a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle in relation to parking lines (the system also includes Moving Object Detection which alerts the driver to moving objects around the vehicle).

In addition, all Infiniti Q70 models come equipped with standard Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and occupant classification sensor; standard front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags; and standard roof mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection.

The 2015 Infiniti Q70 also includes standard 3-point seat belts with Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) and Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) (driver’s seat ELR only), front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters, front seat Active Head Restraints with 4-way manual adjustments, along with Zone Body construction with front and rear crumple zones and LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tether for CHildren). 6

The Infiniti Q70 sedan has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) highest rating of "good" for its performance in the institute's small overlap front crash test, and when equipped with its optional front crash prevention system the Q70 has been awarded a TOP SAFETY PICK+.

The Infiniti Q70's "good" rating applies to the 2014-15 Q70 as well as the 2013 Infiniti M. The vehicles also received good ratings in the IIHS' four other crashworthiness evaluations qualifying the Q70 for the 2014 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ award.

IIHS introduced the small overlap evaluation in 2012. In the test, which is more challenging than either the head-on crashes conducted by the government or the Institute's moderate overlap test, 25 percent of a vehicle's front end on the driver side strikes a rigid barrier at 40 mph. The crash replicates what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object such as a tree or a utility pole.

Hard work and effort have been made to incorporate technology into all Infiniti vehicles that not only make the driving experience more dynamic, but also help make driving safer for both the driver and passengers.
