Infiniti Q70 with Mercedes-sourced diesel engine going to Paris

The Japanese automaker, the premium division of Nissan, has announced it will introduce during the Paris Motor Show in October a new engine variant for the Euro-spec Q70 sedan.

The new, 2015 Q70 has already been presented in its facelifted variant for the North American market, so the Euro-spec model follows suite in adopting the changes. The upgrades include modified front and rear bumpers, new LED-infused headlights and a revised radiator grille (for booth models, Normal and Sport).

The large premium saloon has opted for comfort enhancements all around – the noise isolation has been heightened thanks to body and chassis structure modifications. The ride quality also got up a notch after the automaker’s engineers modified the suspension and added new, standard 18-inch wheels.

There’s a Q70 Hybrid variant on offer – which boasts the Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid system – but for sure European clients are more interested in the addition of a new 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder coming from the Mercedes-Benz stable. The engine delivers 167 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque and coupled with the Start/Stop function it should deliver impressive fuel economy.
