The forthcoming 2019 Infiniti QX70 is a luxury mid-size SUV that offers plenty of premium and upscale stuff. The exterior looks sporty and athletic, while the interior is if not the best-in-class. Luxury is on another level and driving manners are superb. That includes better handling and generally, this SUV is easy to maneuver.
Changes for the 2019 Infiniti QX70 are minor, the front end gains something new and there are few new exterior paints. On top of that, the Limited Package is also on the offer and it brings premium features. Overall, this is a sporty SUV with stunning interior and driving performances. It can accommodate up to five persons and the room inside the cabin is great.
2019 Infiniti QX70 shares plenty of styling cues with sedan models
The exterior is a real piece of art. The 2019 Infiniti QX70 offers athletic stance with plenty of sporty features, lines and curves. Moreover, the styling looks elegant and aerodynamic. Generally, QX70 shares plenty of styling cues with Infiniti’s sedan models. On top of that, the drive is more sedan-like than the actual SUV.
The hood looks brilliant and the air vents are very modern. Sloping roof is gorgeous and it adds an aluminum roof rack with the Premium Package. To the side, 18-inch wheels are standard, while the 21-inch wheels are optional. The color paints that will be available in base one model are Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian, Hagane Blue, Iridium Blue, Majestic White, Liquid Platinum, Midnight Mocha and Malbec Black.
2019 Infiniti QX70 interior offers more legroom and headroom
The interior is luxurious and it adds plenty of upscale features. The dash is nicely designed and it holds an oblong analog clock. Numerous shapes and amenities are the same as in the QX50 model. However, the 2019 Infiniti QX70 offers much more legroom and headroom.
The cabin can accommodate five passengers across the two rows. Cargo room is also great, but still far from best in the segment. Premium Package comes with a new audio system, new navigation and 360-degree camera. The things we like the most are high seating position and practical cargo carrying, which is a real SUV’s purpose. The interior will get two color options Graphite and Wheat.
The safety in 2019 Infiniti QX70 is improved and it will get many new features. We also expect great crash test score as in the previous one.
The features that come standard are rearview monitor back-up camera, electronic stability control (ESC), side impact beams, plenty of airbags over the cabin and curtain, height adjusters and pretensions, low tire pressure warning and rear child safety locks.
2019 Infiniti QX70 engine specs
The 5.0-liter V8 is gone and the 2019 Infiniti QX70 will run on a single drivetrain option. It is a 3.7-liter V6 that is capable of producing up to 325 HP and 267 lb-ft of torque. Sadly, at this moment only 7-speed automatic transmission is available. On the other hand, a manual-shift mode is in the offer, along with the Adaptive Shift Control.
Rear-wheel drive configuration is standard, but you can choose all-wheel drive setup from the list of optional equipment. Traction control is available on the new model which is a great thing.
Fuel economy is rated at 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway with the rear-wheel drive. An all-wheel-drive system offers 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, which is slightly lower.
2019 Infiniti QX70 price and release date
The 2019 Infiniti QX70 will cost around $46,500. Don’t forget that this is one luxury SUV that offers premium stuff, so the price is reasonable. Fully loaded QX70 is priced at over $60,000.
Main rivals are BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Porsche Cayenne. This mid-size SUV will hit the markets later in 2018.
