Infiniti upgrades premium range

A NEW entry price point, lower CO2, extra equipment including full LED front and rear lighting, and a sharp new

A NEW entry price point, lower CO2, extra equipment including full LED front and rear lighting, and a sharp new family look sum up Infiniti’s premium Q70 saloon range for 2015, prices for which have been confirmed from £32,650.

The upgraded line-up, on sale across Europe from January, starts with a new Q70 2.2d model, powered by a four-cylinder diesel engine developed as part of Infiniti’s strategic co-operation with Daimler.

Mated to a standard seven-speed automatic transmission with available paddleshift (depending on model), the new 2.2 diesel unit in the Q70 emits just 129g/km of CO2 while offering stirring performance thanks to 170PS and a generous 400NM of torque.

Replacing the 3.0-litre V6 diesel in the Q70 range, the new Q70 Premium 2.2d is priced from £32,650.

The car comes as standard with full LED headlights, chromed accents on the front grille, a rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, with standard Connectiviti+ navigation, 18-inch wheels and leather seats with ventilation, in what is a typically generous Infiniti standard specification. It is expected that such attractive pricing for a large premium saloon endowed with exceptional technology and equipment will make the new Q70 2.2d model the most popular Q70 variant in the UK market.



Other versions in the new line-up comprise ‘Sport’, with an even more expressive look to the front bumper, uprated brakes and 20-inch wheels, among other changes.
