The base 3.7-liter V6 produces 330 horsepower, while the 5.6-liter V8 offers a rambunctious 420 horsepower (or 416 in long-wheelbase models). The Q70 Hybrid carries a 3.5-liter V6 and electric motor that together achieve 350 horsepower. All three engine are paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission.
Performance highlights include:
- Steering/Handling: This is without question the Q70's strong suit. Few luxury cars of this size are so nimble and athletic.
- Transmission: The seven-speed automatic has been retuned this year for smoother shifts. Four different modes are available to tailor transmission performance to your driving needs.
- Fuel Efficiency: The Hybrid delivers 29 mpg around town and 34 mpg on the highway. These figures are truly impressive considering the hybrid setup is slightly more powerful than the gasoline V6.
