2014 Infiniti Q70 Priced at $50,405

The biggest change for the 2014 Infiniti Q70 will be its name. Formerly known as the Infiniti M (M37, M35h, and M56), the new Q70 will cost $800 more than the base Infiniti M37 cost in 2013. Positioned above the compact Q50 luxury sport sedan and Q60 coupe, the mid-size 2014 Infiniti Q70 adds a few minor enhancements to its tech-loaded luxury package.

The base 2014 Infiniti Q70, equipped with rear-wheel drive and a 3.7-liter V-6 making 330 hp, will total $50,405 (including $905 for delivery). Infiniti’s available Sport package (for both rear- and all-wheel-drive, non-hybrid Q70 models) includes a sportier suspension tuning, upgraded brakes, and 20-inch wheels. New for this year’s Q70, and exclusive to rear-wheel-drive Q70 models with the Sport package, are revised spring and damper rates, and an engine oil cooler.

The all-wheel-drive 2014 Infiniti Q70 3.7 will start at $52,555. The highest-performing Infiniti Q70, with a 420-hp 5.6-liter V-8 under the hood and formerly known as the M56, will start at $62,905 for the rear-wheel-drive model and $65,405 for the all-wheel-drive variant. All 2014 Infiniti Q70 models use a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The powertrain from the previous M35h, a 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a 50 kW electric motor good for 360 total hp, will carry over to the 2014 Infiniti Q70 Hybrid. Pricing for this model will total $56,455. Fuel economy for the Q70 Hybrid will experience a slight bump, up two mpg in all categories to 29/34/31 mpg city/highway/combined. The increase in efficiency is, according to Infiniti, the product of lessons learned during development on the Q50 Hybrid.

The new 34-mpg highway rating will match that of the Lexus GS450h, which has just 338 total hp and costs more ($61,340 including destination fees.)The Mercedes-Benz E400 Hybrid costs slightly more at $56,625, but it also down on both power and fuel economy at 302 hp and 30 mpg highway.

The 2014 Infiniti Q70 is on sale now.
