Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Infiniti Q70 is a five-passenger midsize luxury sedan with an excellent available V8 that's otherwise showing its age, and it's outshined by more recent competitors.The big V8 adds a lot of character to the otherwise middling Q70, so the Q70 5.6 Luxe is the trim we'd pick. Unless driving in inclement weather is a common occurrence for you, we'd also forgo all-wheel drive.

Pros
Athletic, with strong acceleration in V8 versions
Large cabin with comfortable seats

Cons
Limited small-item storage in cabin
Ride comfort suffers with the 20-inch wheels
Many driver assistance features are optional
Infotainment interface is dated and clunky to use
