2019 Infiniti Q70 Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.7

The 2019 Infiniti Q70's interior is, in a word, old. The car hasn't been redesigned in nearly a decade, so the inside looks stale relative to the competition. It's still nice, though, thanks to the high-quality materials and the roomy, supportive seats. The infotainment system shows its age as well, lacking cutting-edge features and sporting an outdated touch screen. Trunk space is average for the class.

  • The 2019 Q70's cabin has a stately, roomy air to it. Leatherette or genuine leather and loads of available wood trim make this seem like a vehicular boardroom, while the array of buttons that cascade down the wide central console can make you feel like you're piloting a plane. There are lots of curves and organic shapes, but the Q70's cabin is yet another area that is showing its age." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • The cabin is nicely trimmed with lots of leather and interesting industrial-metal accents. Materials quality overall is high, and assembly tolerances seem tight. But the control knob and adjoining seat-heater knobs feel downmarket." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "Unfortunately the Q70's styling updates are limited to the exterior of the car, leaving the interior mostly unchanged. Now approaching its 5th birthday, the interior of the Q70 is starting to feel a little long in the tooth, soldiering on with very little in the way of storage and a center stack that is overly cluttered with buttons." -- Left Lane News (2015)

Seating

The Q70 seats five and comes standard with leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats that are heated and ventilated. Leather upholstery and a heated steering wheel are available. Heated rear seats are available in long-wheelbase Q70L trims.

The Q70's seats are generally excellent. They're spacious and comfortable, providing enough room for even tall adults up front and in the back, and they remain supportive after a long day of driving. The Q70L, which is the long-wheelbase model, has even more-expansive rear seats, though it doesn't offer enticing rear-seat amenities like massaging seats or an entertainment system.

Each of the Q70's outboard rear seats has a full set of LATCH child-seat connectors, while the middle rear seat has an upper tether anchor. The lower anchors are set too deep in the seats, and some of them are hard to maneuver around and require a lot of force to attach car seat straps.

  • "The 2017 Q70's interior is open and inviting, and passengers won't have any issues getting comfortable. We particularly like the Q70's driver's seat and positioning." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)
  • The standard-wheelbase Q70 provides a goodly amount of head- and legroom in all seats, allowing for adult-sized rear passengers. The Q70L stretches the car out and increases rear legroom by 5.9 inches, but the absence of typical long-wheelbase options makes it feel oddly barren. There are no rear controls for climate or audio, for example, nor are there amenities like massaging seats, footrests or a rear entertainment system." -- Edmunds (2016)
  • The Q70's front buckets proved comfortable and supportive during our-day long test drive, but the real story is the rear quarters of the Q70L. Thanks to nearly six inches of added wheelbase, the Q70L offers rear seat legroom rivaling that of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Audi A8L. But while we were impressed with the Q70L's rear seat space, we were let down by its lack of amenities." -- Left Lane News (2015)

Interior Features

Standard features in the Q70 include a moonroof, an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system, navigation, Bluetooth, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, satellite radio, automatic headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a 360-degree camera.

Available features include a 16-speaker Bose surround-sound system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, active lane keep assist, and rear parking sensors.

The Q70's features list isn't as long as some competitors', and you may not love some of the features you get. The infotainment system lacks smartphone connectivity features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are increasingly common even in nonluxury vehicles, and the touch screen is outdated and leaves a lot of room for improvement. The graphics aren't sharp, and the control knob that accompanies the touch screen isn't as intuitive as those in competitors.

  • "The most dated infotainment interface you'll find in this class. The touchscreen is a throwback to a different era. The graphics are low-resolution and lack flair. The Bose stereo sounds pretty good, but otherwise the Q70 system is a mess." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "The LCD screen nestled between the Q70's gauges is almost laughably outdated, especially considering this is Infiniti's flagship luxury sedan." -- Left Lane News (2015)

Cargo

The Q70 has 14.9 cubic feet of trunk room, which is in the middle of the pack for the class. The trunk narrows between the wheels and isn't very deep, so even though the opening is wide, you may have trouble loading and carrying large items. There's not much small-item storage throughout the cabin, though the center console has tiers that allow you to keep things sorted.

  • "There's a wide opening, but it narrows at the wheelwells. No power closing, just power release, and the release takes an extra half-second for some reason. The rear seatback is fixed, so you can't fold it down to gain extra cargo capacity." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "The trunk is wide at the back but quite narrow at the front and not particularly deep." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
  • "The center console is pragmatically tiered to keep snacks, lip gloss and diapers organized; the trunk pass-through is great for skis and other long, thin gear; and the trunk offered lots of storage space for strollers, groceries or your third child (kidding)." -- Mother Proof (2011)
