The Q70 3.7 and Q70 5.6 sedans might not set a new benchmark for their class, but they do compete as true equals with the best of the German and Japanese alternatives.
And with the introduction of the new Q70L model this year, the Q70 might at last be considered a rival to the step-up models like the BMW 7-Series, Jaguar XJR, and possibly even the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or Lexus LS.
The Audi A6 is fresh and well-equipped, with its own conservative take on style and a plush, detail-focused interior.
The Audi A7 ups the exterior styling ante while matching the A6's quality interior.
Both Audis offer compelling powertrain options, most notably a fun and efficient supercharged V-6.
The Jaguar XF is another good choice, with its rocket-quick 510-horsepower XFR version, or its more affordable, yet well-finished and uniquely styled trims--but it is a bit short on rear seat space.
The Lexus GS isn't as performance-oriented as the Infiniti Q70, but it is well-equipped and tastefully finished.
BMW's 5-Series matches or exceeds the Q70's handling, while offering even more available safety technology; Mercedes-Benz's E Class is perhaps the more formal option, though still sporty in its own right, too, and offering plenty of upgrades and equipment.
