[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he extended wheelbase 2015 Infiniti Q70L is not only stylish and sporty, it is an exceptionally safe vehicle, earning a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The new addition to the Q70 lineup is expected to account for about 40 percent of total 2015 Q70 sales with its 5.9-inch longer wheelbase and 5.9 inches of extra rear-seat knee room (32.5 inches total). Along with its first class-style space, the Q70L provides a smooth, luxurious ride and comfort for all seating positions.
As expected of Infiniti’s flagship sedan, the new Q70L offers all the evocative design, invigorating performance, innovative technology and superior craftsmanship of the standard wheelbase Q70, including a choice of 3.7-liter V-6 and 5.6-liter V-8 engines and rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.
Available advanced technologies include Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Backup Collision Intervention and Forward Emergency Braking.
Also offered are an advanced Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System, Bose Studio Surround premium audio system, Blind Spot Warning, Blind Spot Intervention, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention systems, Enhanced Intelligent Key, Intelligent Cruise Control, Distance Control Assist and Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts.
Building on the foundation of the standard Infiniti Q70, which gets an extensive exterior refresh for 2015, the Q70L seamlessly ingrates the additional length behind the B-pillars – with the flowing lines and refined elegance of the vehicle taking on an even more upscale image.
And, with the extended length of the Q70L’s rear doors, rear seat entry and exit is easier – especially for taller passengers. Automatic power rear door clinchers are also standard.
The 2015 Q70L’s new LED headlights make an immediate first impression. An Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) with auto-leveling headlights is available as part of the Technology Package. The distinctive headlights accentuate the new double arch grille, which takes on a more three-dimensional look due to the elaborate detail of the high-quality waved mesh finish and chrome surround. The same solid feel is echoed in the new front bumper with integrated LED fog lights, giving the Q70L a dignified presence on road.
From the front, a strong body line rises from the grille, flowing through the bodyside like a wave and blending into the shape of the new rear LED combination lights, forming a compelling profile that highlights the Q70L’s sporty stance. At the rear, the design of the taillights creates a horizontal flow in motion while the high-quality lighting signature evokes a fresh and classy image.
The top line of the trunk lid has been flattened while the rear bumper has been slimmed down to create a longer and lower visual impression, further emphasizing the premium sedan’s sporty and powerful styling. The chrome rear finisher adds a touch of class to the entire rear view.
Other standard exterior features include a power sliding tinted glass moonroof with onetouch open/close, tilt feature and sliding sunshade, power-folding heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signal with reverse tilt-down feature and rain-sensing variable intermittent front windshield wipers.
The base MSRP on the 2015 Infiniti Q70L is $51,350.[author image=”http://www.communitynewspapers.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Grant-Miller-4-C.jpg” ]Grant Miller is the publisher of Community Newspapers.
