The Infiniti Q70 and Q70L are a line of mid-size luxury (executive) cars from Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance luxury division Infiniti. It's essentially an update to the Infiniti M series with minor cosmetic changes. The Q70 name was brought about to reflect Infiniti's updated nomenclature where all model names start with the letter 'Q'.
The Chinese model went on sale in 2012.
In 2013, the entire Infiniti line was renamed, with the M sedans becoming the Q70; this reflected the model's relative position in the Infiniti lineup, rather than the engine displacement as had previously been used.
US models went on sale in 2014 model year vehicles. Early models included 3.7, 3.7 AWD, 5.6, 5.6 AWD, Hybrid.
