Design of the 2018 Infiniti Q70
The design of the 2018 Infiniti Q70 is breathtakingly luxurious. The elegantly sculpted exterior appears to be in motion even when the vehicle is standing still, while the interior is luxuriously designed to make it look inviting and comfortable.
Crafted to be stylish, the 2018 Infiniti Q70 looks breathtaking from every angle. The flowing contours can be seen at the front of the vehicle and all the way to the rear to affirm subtlety and elegance in its design.
The hood at the front of the vehicle is sculpted to look muscular and aggressive. The nose of the hood comes down to meet with the signature Infiniti grille to make the vehicle more aerodynamic. The automatic LED headlights have a slanted look that appears flattering with the overall design.
The trapezoidal grille is now wider than before and the headlights connect with the grille to offer a more angular and feline appearance. The fog lights right below the headlights add to the aggressive look of the vehicle while providing better visibility to the driver.
The sharp lines flow seamlessly at the sides of the vehicle to bring consistency in the design. The stance of the 2018 Q70 is wide and athletic while the fastback roofline gives it the perfect sedan look. The chrome accents around the trapezoidal grille, headlights, door handles, windows and the tailgate further enhance the exterior appeal and make the vehicle look striking.
The LED rear brake lights and high-mounted stoplight at the center give the vehicle an exquisite design appeal even from the back. The side profile of the vehicle looks sharp with standard 18-inch wheels, however, the dynamic look of the exterior can be further enhanced with the optional 20-inch wheels.
The 2018 Q70 is available in Hermosa Blue, Liquid Platinum, Hagane Blue, Chestnut Bronze, Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian and Majestic White colors.
