MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 15, 2015 /CNW/ - Today, Infiniti's all-new executive luxury sedan – the 2015 Infiniti Q70L – made its Canadian debut at the Montreal International Auto Show. Representing the very best of the Infiniti sedan lineup and featuring "SUV rear legroom" and exhilarating performance, the new Q70L is set to shake up the segment and help the brand build on its record-breaking year in Canada that saw sales up 15 per cent and more than 10,000 vehicles sold for the first time ever.
"Building on our best year ever in Canada, Infiniti is excited to add the new Q70 executive luxury sedan to our lineup," said Wendy Durward, Director of Marketing, Infiniti Canada. "The Q70L is the epitome of luxury and delivers on all accounts – premium and beautiful design, exhilarating performance and handling and a luxurious and extremely spacious interior. No other brand in the segment offers an extended wheelbase with premium features like Q70L."
The seductive lines and dynamic curves of the Q70L presents a new dramatic design which gives the premium sedan an even more upscale image. It's flowing, emotional lines evoke a premium sleekness. From the front, a strong body line rises from the grille, flowing through the body side like a wave and blends into the shape of the new rear LED combination lights, forming a compelling profile that highlights the Q70L's sporty stance. At the rear, the new design of the taillights creates a horizontal flow in motion while the high-quality lighting signature evokes a fresh and classy image.
Inside, the Q70L features an additional 5.9 inches in the wheelbase that not only augments the athletic presence of the sedan, but also increases the knee and leg space in the rear seats.
"Our customers have requested "SUV space" in a luxury sedan so we have provided just that," added Durward. "The rear seat is so spacious that most passengers can even cross their legs."
The 2015 Q70L doesn't just look and feel good though: it has a long list of standard safety and security systems available, which you would expect of an Infiniti – including the world's first Predictive Forward Collision Warning that was launched on the Q50 last year.
Staying true to Infiniti's roots of sporty precision, the Q70L features Infiniti's powerful and efficient, top-of-the line, fully equipped Q70L 5.6 AWD – delivering 416 horsepower and 414 lb-ft of torque to the driver's fingertips.
With its compelling design and premium interior ambience, the long wheelbase Q70L broadens Infiniti's offerings for those who desire enhanced spaciousness and versatility, appealing to the sporty sedan fan who also requires executive levels of interior room.
"The Q70L is another example of Infiniti's Inspired Performance. It is more than just our tagline. It is what drives us to continue pushing the boundaries of design and performance," said Durward.
The 2015 Infiniti Q70L is available now, in dealerships across the country.
