TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The soft, flowing lines of the redesigned M...instantly make the 2009 M appear dated, narrow and even a bit frumpy.

...A richer ambiance than its predecessor.

Motor Trend »

...An optional deluxe touring package...is dressed up with hand-finished, white ash wood sprinkled with (get this!) actual silver powder. It may sound a little Liberace, but it’s actually quite subtle. And pretty gorgeous.

Squint hard enough and you can see what the Porsche Panamera should have looked like.

...Both models are in fact quite handsome and stand out far more than the previous, anonymous Mr. M.

The Basics:

Stylish yet subtle, the 2014 Infiniti Q70's combination of lavish equipment and dynamic performance makes it one of the more elegant choices in the luxury sedan realm, even with the stiff competition from Germany and America.

Previously known as the M sedan, the 2014 Infiniti Q70 reaches its rivarly of the world's best luxury sedans without copying them--it's a true original. Striking, voluptuous curves and complex surfaces wrap an interior filled with warm wood, semi-aniline leather, and considerably more personality than you'll find in comparably stark European alternatives.

Both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the Infiniti Q70 are available, as are two different engines: a V-6 and a V-8. The Q70 3.7 RWD and AWD share a 3.7-liter V-6 engine rated at 330 horsepower; the Q70 5.6 RWD and AWD get a 5.6-liter, 420-horsepower V-8. All models get a seven-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode, rev-matching downshifts, and optional paddle shifters. Both V-6 and V-8 versions of the Q70 accelerate rapidly and shift smoothly.

A hybrid version of the Q70 will also be available in January 2014, matching the previous M35 Hybrid's spec with a combined 350-horsepower rating from its combination of a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and lithium-ion-powered electric motor.

Whichever powertrain you choose, the 2014 Q70 offers brisk acceleration and responsive handling. The 5.6-liter V-8 in the Q70 5.6 models is particularly impressive, pushing occupants back into their seats as easily as the driver can press the gas pedal. Suspension calibration is smart and slick, with a good balance between comfort and control. Steering is well-weighted and has fair turn-in feel, especially on rear-drive models. An available sport package (which adds a new engine cooler on V-6 models for 2014) is our preferred configuration, adding 20-inch wheels, four-wheel steering, sport seats and steering wheel, and aluminum pedal trim.

On the gas mileage front, the best performer is the Q70 Hybrid, rating 27 mpg city, 32 mpg highway, and 29 mpg combined. Among the conventional models, the Q70 3.7 RWD scores 18/26 mpg city/highway for 21 mpg combined; adding all-wheel drive subtracts 1 mpg city, 2 mpg highway, and 1 mpg combined. The Q70 5.6 RWD rates just slightly worse at 16/24 mpg city/highway and 19 mpg combined; all-wheel drive models lose 1 mpg highway and 1 mpg combined.

The 2014 Infiniti Q70 hasn't yet been crash tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but the 2013 Infiniti M37/M56 duo won Top Safety Picks from the IIHS. Standard safety equipment includes dual front, side, and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes' active headrests; stability and traction control; a rearview camera; and parking sensors. Advanced safety options are also available, including dynamic cruise control, adaptive headlamps, and blind-spot and lane-departure warning systems.

Infiniti doesn't shortchange the Q70 on the features front, either, with a strong set of standard equipment in V-6 versions, including heated leather seats; rain-sensing wipers; Bluetooth; Intelligent Key system; automatic climate control; and more. Step up to the V-8 models and you'll add Bose audio; a heated steering wheel; ventilated front seats; plus standard Bluetooth audio streaming; voice-activated navigation; an in-dash DVD player; and more.

Likes:

  • Balanced, engaging handling
  • Stylish and useful interior
  • Sensual, stand-out exterior design
  • A usable back seat
  • Available all wheel drive

Dislikes:

  • Rough-sounding V-6
  • Can be noisy and harsh in the cabin
  • Adding tech items quickly boosts the price
  • Not a status symbol, yet
