I am 6'5" so finding a car where I can both be comfortable at the wheel and have even a chance of having someone sit behind me is a challenge to say the least. I have been a loyal Infiniti customer for over a decade - repeatedly with the FX35 and recently with the Q50. When I started looking around this year I decided that while the Q50 was nimble I was determined to be able to get a passenger in the back seat behind me (if possible) but I will admit the search had me looking away from the brand for the first time ever. That is, until I stumbled upon the Q70 "L" version - which I did not know even existed. The "L" in this case stands for Long - and the Q70 is just that - it's about a foot longer than the regular version and demonstrably larger than the Q50. This larger size adds more weight of course and thus the engine (to me) seems to be exactly like the FX35 rather than the lighter and quicker Q50. However, the ride is superb and the car is by no means slow - just not as quick as the Q50. But what you get is Infiniti's top-of-the-line sedan with an interior that is the largest in their fleet - and in the "L" version has an almost absurd amount of room in the back seat. (The video on Infiniti's site where this car is being used as a limo is not out of the question) Almost every conceivable bell and whistle is available - including 360 degree around-car monitor for parking - etc. The one criticism I have seen elsewhere is that the available tech compatibility is not "state of the art" and I guess if that matters to you, it's an issue. But if you want immense leg room and comfort and an awesome ride in the height of style - consider this car.
