2019 Infinity Q70 MSRP and Release Date
Exact release time of 2019 Infiniti Q70 is not known yet. However, it may reach showrooms in mid-2018 for sale. We expect a similar price like in the current model. The previous model Q70 has MSRP around $51,000 for the base model.
However, the more powered V8 model is started at $64,000. If you get an AWD system you must pay extra $2,200 for V6 models and less than $2,600 for V8 model. Furthermore, we expect the Hybrid model to have a price less than $58,000. The fully loaded model can reach the price of $ 75,000.
Summing it up
The 2019 Infiniti Q70 is a well designed and feature rich luxury vehicle that gets a revamp. The safety features are good and same can be said about the fuel economy. The pricing is decent but the vehicle suffers from an outdated infotainment setup. Its main rivals are Lexus GS and also Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
