Facelifted Infiniti Q70 Arrives in Paris with New Diesel Lump

Infiniti’s Q70 sedan made its Paris Auto Show debut with refreshed styling and a new diesel engine.

The executive saloon previously known as the M gets a look that’s closer to the smaller Q50 with more chiseled bumpers, a redesigned grille, new headlamp and tail lamp clusters with standard LEDs, plus a fresh set of 18-inch wheels.

Onboard comfort and noise isolation has been improved through the modification of several points around the body and chassis structure, while Infiniti also made changes to the suspension setup.

More importantly for European consumers, the 2015 Q70 gets a new 2.2-liter turbo diesel four-cylinder engine that delivers 168hp (170PS) and 400Nm of peak torque, increasing the choice of powertrains to four.

Other updates include additional 12V outlets in cabin and cargo area, new small stowage spots for personal devices such as cell phones, and an enhanced HVAC logic for the climate control that syncs up with the Start/Stop function on the 2.2 turbodiesel.
