It looks like the familiar mid-size crossover is about to come back after a short hiatus. Recently discontinued, this model has been replaced by a smaller and more practical QX50 model. However, that doesn’t mean that the company doesn’t want to compete in the segment of the mid-size crossover. Moreover, it looks like the new 2020 Infiniti QX70 will go even more upscale. What this does actually mean, it is hard to say precisely.
Still, our reliable insiders suggest that the new model will enter a so-called coupe-crossover segment and compete with models like BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Of course, the new model would come with a lot of novelties in terms of new design and technical solutions, including new engines. However, we are still waiting to hear something from the officials. So, take the following info with a dose of a reserve.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Redesign
Despite the short break, this is clearly a redesign. At this point, we know that the new model will come with a lot of new design solutions and technologies. According to the latest reports, the 2020 Infiniti QX70 will continue to be a mid-size crossover. However, we count on a little bit different approach.
Of course, the whole platform will be new, starting from a lighter chassis, which will provide better efficiency. In terms of dimensions, we don’t expect bigger changes in wheelbase. On the other side, a different body style definitely means different overall dimensions. Speaking of the body style, the 2020 Infiniti QX70 is about to come as a coupe-crossover. This segment has become hugely popular in the past few years. It is a real premium segment, which puts style and luxury over practicality. A good thing for Infiniti designers in that the previous generation already features a kind of a sloping roof, so they are pretty familiar with such design philosophy.
Still, such a roof will be much more accentuated in this case. Count on a sleeker profile and a more athletic approach in general. How the new model will exactly look, it is hard to say at the moment.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Styling
Despite the fact that we know most of the design characteristics of the 2020 Infiniti QX70, the exact styling is still a mystery. According to some reports, Nissan’s luxury division is about to introduce a completely new design language. How it’s going to look like, we can’t tell you at the moment. A new QX50 model came recently, with new styling. However, many see its styling as a sharped version of the company’s familiar design philosophy, so things should be much different in the case of 2020 Infiniti QX70. This model looks like it’s about to become more angular when it comes to the front end. On the other side, the overall shape will definitely be very sleek, with a sloping roofline and all those features that will make it a coupe crossover.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Interior
Another aspect that is still a mystery. Still, we are pretty sure about one thing. That is the interior quality, which should be at a much higher level this time. The biggest complaint about the previous model was about its interior quality, which is quite ordinary. It looks more like a mainstream than a premium car and that is the thing Infiniti will definitely have to improve. Besides new materials, the 2020 Infiniti QX70 is about to come with a completely new cabin layout as well. When it comes to the dashboard layout, we expect to see something completely new. On the other side, the overall cabin layout should be a typical coupe-like. In practice, this means a lot of styles, but not too much practicality. Count on a limited headroom in the second row. Also, count on a pretty small cargo area, not only because of a sloping roof but because of short rear overhang as well.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Engines
When it comes to engines, we expect to see at least two units in the offer. Base models will probably come with a new 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 270 horsepower. However, the real deal is expected to come with a new V6 engine.
According to the latest reports, we are about to see a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo unit, which should be tuned to around 400 horsepower. With such an amount of power, we can expect nothing less but excellent performances. Both engines should come paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Release Date and Price
Despite the fact that we are still waiting to hear something from the officials, many reports suggest that the 2020 Infiniti QX70 could hit the market already in the next year. When it comes to the price, we presume that base models will go around 55.000 dollars. Key rivals will be models like BMW X6, Audi Q8, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe etc.
