Nissan’s FM platform was used therefore 21-inch wheels are expected. Some of the new exterior features are LED headlights and new grille. The 2016 Infiniti Q70 definitely looks more luxurious and more muscular. Inside, materials were carefully chosen, especially wood and leather. Door design is one of the noticeable changes and it is believed it will have more space at the back thanks to longer wheelbase.
