Quick in Hybrid guise, exclusivity, dealers supposedly excellent
Crashy ride, steering
What is it?
Infiniti is the posh arm of Nissan, and it’s been selling well in America for years now. So they thought they’d bring it over to Europe, just as the biggest recession in decades took hold. Whoops. But Infiniti is persisting, and the car that takes the fight to the 5-Series and E-Class is this, the Q70 (formerly, the M). It’s got all the right engines now – petrol, diesel, hybrid – and all trim levels come loaded with standard spec. Not that any of this is really helping sales over here.
