For 2016, the Q70 provides a modern Premium Select version (standard-wheelbase only). The package delivers unique exterior and interior finishes, including specifically designated 20″ wheels, and also an option of two semi-aniline leather colors and a suede-like headliner.
Standard Q70 exterior features include the power-sliding tinted-glass moonroof with one-touch close/open, sliding sunshade and tilt feature, and power-folding heated outside mirrors with a reverse tilt-down feature. There’s also a dual exhaust with polished tips as standard. The integrated LED turn signals, courtesy lamps built into outside door handles and rain-sensing variable intermittent-front windshield wipers. An Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) with auto-leveling headlights is readily available too but only with the Technology Package.
The 2016 Infiniti QX70 now comes standard with Bluetooth phone connectivity, a rearview camera, satellite radio, and also an 11-speaker Bose audio system. There’s also a USB port, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power moonroof, the Infiniti Controller to adjust audio and a 7-inch display and the climate settings.
Standard technology equipment includes Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, HomeLink Universal Transceiver, Infiniti Intelligent Key with Illuminated Push Button Ignition, and also a RearView Monitor.
Other interior highlights include a six-speaker audio system with AM/FM/CD and SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription needed, sold separately), USB Connection Port for iPod interface and any other compatible devices, and Radio Data System (RDS).
Engine/ Fuel Efficiency
In the 2016 Infiniti QX70, the V6 engine is standard. Many testers think the standard 7-speed automatic transmission shifts faster in manual mode, even though a few individuals think it downshifts gradually when left to its devices.
At an EPA estimate of 17/24 MPG city/highway, the QX70 gets moderately lower fuel-economy than the majority of its rivals.
Safety equipment includes side, dual-front, and curtain airbags; active headrests; anti-lock brakes; stability and traction control; parking sensors; and a rearview camera. Adaptive headlamps, dynamic cruise control, and a lane-departure warning and blind-spot systems are also on provided.
Accident-avoidance technology includes a surround-view camera system, and predictive forward collision warning. In addition to this, there’s also backup collision warnings and automatic emergency braking.
