The Infiniti Q60, a two-door luxury coupe with seating for four, is completely redesigned for 2017. And if you looking for a stylish coupe, the 2017 Infiniti Q60 fits the bill. If you're looking for a high-performance coupe, it may come up short.
Infiniti offers the Q60 in four trim levels: 2.0t, 2.0t Premium, 3.0t Premium and Red Sport 400. A 3.0t Sport model arrives later in 2017.
Every Q60 comes standard with a seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is an option on any Q60. The Q60 2.0t runs on a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The 3.0t Premium and the Sport are both powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that yields 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The Red Sport 400 runs an augmented version of the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, with an output of 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.
We haven't tested the base 2.0t model or any of the 3.0t models, and but we found driving the Red Sport 400 underwhelming. The Q60's power is all there, and the handling and suspension feel secure. But the steering is disconnected, not what you'd want in a high-performance coupe. This, combined with subdued engine noises, makes driving the Q60 slightly uninspiring.
Inside the Infiniti Q60 Coupe, you'll find the same basic cabin as in the Q50. It may not be at the top of its class as far as refinement is concerned, but the dual-screen tech interface makes the car feel modern and relevant. The upper touchscreen is mostly for navigation, and the lower screen focuses on audio and smartphone-based apps. It's not as easy to use as previous Infiniti systems, however, so you may need more time to sort out the details. Luckily, the front seats are incredibly supportive, so you'll be comfortable as you do it. Rear seat passengers may lack sufficient headroom, but legroom is ample.
Fuel economy for the Q60 Coupe averages in the low-to-mid 20s, varying slightly when comparing the standard rear-wheel drive to the optional all-wheel drive. With rear-wheel drive, the 2.0t gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined (22 city/30 highway). All-wheel drive gets you 24 mpg (21 city/28 highway). The 3.0t Premium and the Sport get an estimated 22 mpg combined (19 city/28 highway) with rear-wheel drive and 22 mpg (19 city/27 highway) with all-wheel drive. Finally, fuel economy for the Red Sport 400 is estimated at 22 mpg combined (20 city/27 highway) with rear-wheel drive and 21 mpg (19 city/26 highway) with all-wheel drive.
