2016 INFINITI Q70h OVERVIEW

To be successful, contemporary hybrid cars need to provide something more than thrifty fuel economy. That’s what helps make the INFINITI Q70h a worthy contender toward the luxury end of the battery/gasoline spectrum. Ask Q70 owners what they like best about their car, and most will probably note its overall athleticism and tastefully restrained styling -- two factors not always found in midsize luxury sedans. Introduced for 2012, when INFINITI still used the M35 designation, the Q70 Hybrid retains those tempting qualities, but adds a helping of class-leading efficiency. INFINITI continues to offer a gas-engine Q70 and an extended-length Q70L.

What's New for 2016

Little has changed on the Hybrid sedan, following a light refresh last year for each Q70 model.

Choosing Your INFINITI Q70h

INFINITI Q70h Interior

The Q70 Hybrid is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine working in concert with a 50-kilowatt electric motor. Together, the system produces 360 horsepower. With that kind of output, you needn't worry about performance in this hybrid. Acceleration to 60 mph takes a mere 5.5 seconds -- actually faster than the gasoline V6 version of the Q70, and barely slower than the V8 model.

Of course, the foremost benefit of the hybrid setup is its 31-mpg fuel economy in combined driving -- an exceptional figure for a luxury sedan of this ability. The Q70h is EPA-estimated at 29 mpg in city driving and 34 on the highway, versus 18/26 mpg for the thriftiest gas-engine version.

The standard seven-speed automatic transmission offers four shift modes: Standard, Sport, Snow and Eco. Although other Q70s can be fitted with all-wheel drive, the Hybrid is rear-drive only. The lithium-ion battery pack is mounted near the trunk, slightly reducing cargo space.

The Q70h gets a few hybrid-specific features, including special instrumentation and shock absorbers. Otherwise, it's equipped much like the gas models with a leather/wood interior, heated power front seats with driver’s memory, a sunroof, power soft-close trunk lid, keyless ignition, automatic bi-xenon headlights, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Also standard are dual-zone automatic climate control, an Intelligent Key, and 7-inch information display screen. Tech features include a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone, and satellite radio.

INFINITI Q70h Side

While technically an option rather than standard, the Premium package can be added at no cost. Who could turn down such a choice? That means you get free upgrades like navigation with real-time traffic/weather data, a Bose 10-speaker sound system, heated steering wheel, front/rear parking sensors, ventilated front seats, and a surround-view camera system.

For even greater interior luxury, you can add the $3,900 Deluxe Touring package with semi-aniline leather seats, silver-powdered wood trim, simulated suede headliner, a power rear sunshade, and a Bose surround-sound audio system.

Models equipped with the Deluxe Touring package are eligible for the $3,300 Technology package. That one adds such driving aids as adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, a frontal collision mitigation system with automatic braking, and an "eco" gas pedal that provides feedback to your right foot to encourage fuel-efficient driving.

Individual options are limited to accessories, including a rear spoiler, lighted stainless steel door sill plates, and trunk dress-up package.

CarsDirect Tip

Because the Premium package is essentially standard (INFINITI calls it complimentary), you don't have to spend more than the base price to get an impressively-equipped luxury sedan. Although the Technology package offers some valuable safety features, it must be bundled with the Deluxe Touring package. That's a total of $7,200 in extras, which is a substantial add-on even in the Q70's segment of the luxury-sedan league.
