The Q70 sedan is very quick, with a lively 330-hp V6 and a smooth seven-speed automatic that returned 21-mpg overall in our tests. A V8 and a V6 hybrid are also available. But the transition between electric and gas mode in the hybrid is too abrupt. Handling is quite agile, with communicative steering. The firm ride is compliant but trails the competition in terms of plushness.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
