Infinity QX70 Ultimate Revealed
Everything that owners love most about the design and performance of Infiniti’s statement-making QX70 is distilled into a new version – the new QX70 Ultimate, to have its premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show.
The QX70 is well established as Infiniti’s SUV design icon and the Ultimate offering ramps up the appeal to make it the most desirable QX70 yet – a car with the heart and soul of a sports coupe yet the ability to fit effortlessly into the most active and demanding of people’s lives.
As well as adopting the best features, technologies and craftsmanship of QX70 the Ultimate delivers subtle front and rear design changes, including a new front splitter and rear diffuser with integrated fog light. New dark chrome trim front and rear emphasises a technical look that enhances the signature and highly expressive QX70 style. New 21-inch anthracite alloy wheels further distinguish the Ultimate model, while new daytime running lights give it even more road presence.
The Ultimate’s interior sets the car apart in equally dramatic fashion. The mood here is shiny black lacquer finishes, purple stitching, soft leather – and all the room, luxury and convenience for which the QX70 is already famous.
For the Ultimate version, the ultimate high performance/high efficiency engines are fitted: either a potent 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine or a refined and torquey 3.0-litre V6 diesel. Both are mated to a 7-speed adaptive shift automatic transmission with gearshift paddles on the steering wheel. The paddles are for when driving fun takes over… which with sports car-like weight distribution and an intelligent torque-sensing all-wheel drive system it will do, and often. The QX70 Ultimate delivers agility and response however demanding the roads, ensuring a drive every bit as dynamic as the design.
Brimming with personality and technology, the new QX70 Ultimate epitomises the qualities at the heart of the burgeoning Infiniti range in Europe. Sales in Western Europe and Russia begin after the QX70 Ultimate makes its public debut, at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) on September 15 2015, with prices starting from £52,430 OTR for the petrol version and from £52,280 OTR for the diesel version.
