Infiniti is celebrating its 2015, and 25th, model year in in a big way - with the introduction of the new extended wheelbase Infiniti Q70L. The new addition to the Q70 lineup, representing the very best of what one can enjoy from the Infiniti sedan portfolio  offers a 150mm/5.9-inch longer wheelbase, 143mm/5.6 inches of additional rear seat legroom (1062.5mm/41.8 inches total) and 150mm/5.9 inches of extra knee room (825.5mm/32.5 inches total). Along with its first class-style space, the Q70L is designed to provide smooth, luxurious ride comfort for all seating positions.

And, as expected of Infiniti's flagship sedan, the new Q70L offers all the evocative design, invigorating performance, innovative technology and superior craftsmanship of the standard wheelbase Q70.

Standard advanced technologies include Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Backup Collision Intervention and Forward Emergency Braking.

Also included are an advanced Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System, Bose® Studio Surround® premium audio system, Blind Spot Warning, Blind Spot Intervention, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention systems, Enhanced Intelligent Key, Intelligent Cruise Control, Distance Control Assist and Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts.

Building on the foundation of the standard Infiniti Q70, which receives an extensive exterior refresh for 2015, the Q70L seamlessly ingrates the additional length behind the B-pillars - with the flowing, emotional lines and refined elegance of the vehicle taking on an even more upscale image. And, with the extended length of the Q70L's rear doors, rear seat ingress and egress is enhanced - especially for taller passengers. Automatic power rear door clinchers are also standard.

The 2015 Q70L's new LED headlights, which evoke inner intelligence and human insight, make an immediate and indelible first impression. An Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) with auto-leveling headlights is standard. The distinctive headlights accentuate the new double arch grille, which now takes on a more three-dimensional look due to the elaborate detail of the high-quality waved mesh finish and chrome surround. The same solid feel is echoed in the new front bumper with integrated LED fog lights, giving the Q70L a dignified presence on road.

From the front, a strong body line rises from the grille, flowing through the bodyside like a wave and blending 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 design of the taillights creates a horizontal flow in motion while the high-quality lighting signature evokes a fresh and classy image.

The top line of the trunk lid has been flattened while the rear bumper has been slimmed down to create a longer and lower visual impression, further emphasizing the premium sedan's sporty and powerful styling. The chrome rear finisher adds a touch of class to the entire rear view. The new Q70L has a low coefficient of drag of just 0.27. Other standard exterior features include a power sliding tinted glass moonroof with one-touch open/close, tilt feature and sliding sunshade, power-folding heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signal with reverse tilt-down feature and rain-sensing variable intermittent front windshield wipers.

Also standard are and courtesy lamps built into the outside door handles, rear window defroster with timer, dual exhaust with polished tips and automatic trunk cincher.

The 2015 Infiniti Q70L is available in eight exterior colours: Hermosa Blue Pearl, Chestnut Bronze, Malbec Black, Platinum Ice, Asgard Grey, Storm Front Grey, Black Obsidian and Aspen Pearl with premium pearl finish.
