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'.
