2021 Infiniti Q60 Review

  • Red Sport 400's powerful engine
  • Plenty of value for a luxury coupe
  • All-wheel drive available for all trims
  • Cabin is showing its age
  • Trunk is small, even for a luxury coupe
  • Not as engaging to drive as most rivals
  • Heated front seats and more added to Luxe trim level
  • Advanced climate control with air purifier standard on Red Sport 400
  • Part of the second Q60 generation introduced for 2017

Crisp lines and curving panels make the 2021 Infiniti Q60 one of the most eye-catching coupes out there. Its proportions, highlighted by a long hood and a short back end, also exude a car ready for sporty driving. Unfortunately, the Q60 doesn't quite deliver on the styling's promise of performance.

The Infiniti's strong V6 engine isn't the problem. Power and acceleration are effortless, especially in the high-performance Red Sport 400 trim that pumps out a strong 400 horsepower. But alongside its fresher contemporaries, the Q60 suffers from sluggish handling, a stale interior design and dated technology features. Infiniti only recently added Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connections, and the base trim Q60 lacks basic collision avoidance features common on most cars today.

It's an easy case to make that the Audi S5, BMW 4 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class are better overall. But the Q60's sharp style and just-enough luxury for the price can make it a decent pick for a luxury coupe in 2021.

Which Q60 does Edmunds recommend?

Simply seeking a sport coupe with style? You'll be best served by the Q60 Luxe. It provides a solid combination of luxury and price, and it can be tailored to taste with many of the top options. And if considering the Red Sport 400, avoid the ProActive package. It comes with a different steering system that lacks road feel and zaps much of the car's fun.

INFINITI Q60 models

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 is offered in three trim levels: Pure, Luxe and Red Sport 400. The Pure and Luxe come with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine (300 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque), while the Red Sport 400 gets the same V6 with more power (400 hp, 350 lb-ft). All Q60s are equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional.

Pure
The base Pure trim comes with a well-rounded feature set that includes:

  • 19-inch wheels
  • LED headlights
  • Keyless ignition and entry
  • Remote start
  • Heated mirrors
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Simulated leather upholstery
  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • Dual-zone climate control

The Q60 also comes with:

  • Dual-touchscreen infotainment interface (8-inch upper screen, 7-inch lower)
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • Satellite radio
  • Six-speaker sound system
  • Wi-Fi hotspot

Luxe
The Luxe adds some extra comfort and tech features, including:  

  • Sunroof
  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • 13-speaker Bose sound system
  • 360-degree camera system (gives you a top-down view of the Q60 and its surroundings for tight parking situations)
  • Lane departure warning (alerts you if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane)
  • Adaptive cruise control (maintains a driver-set distance between the Q60 and the car in front)
  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking (warns if a front impact is imminent and applies the brakes if you don't respond in time)

Optional on the Luxe trim level is the Essential package, which adds:

  • Power-adjustable steering wheel
  • Driver-seat position memory (seat, side mirrors and steering wheel settings)
  • Cabin air purifier
  • Navigation system

Red Sport 400
Aside from a more powerful V6, the high-performance Red Sport 400 adds:

  • 20-inch wheels
  • Performance tires
  • Upgraded brakes
  • Sport-tuned suspension
  • Sport front seats
  • Contents of the Luxe's Essential package
  • Transmission shift paddles

The optional ProActive package for the Red Sport 400 adds more driver assistance and safety features, such as:

  • Adaptive headlights (swivel as you turn the steering wheel for better illumination in curves)
  • Blind-spot intervention (automatically steers the car back into its lane if you try to change lanes while a car is in the vehicle's blind spot)
  • Direct adaptive steering (electronically enhances steering feel and response)
  • Lane departure mitigation (warns you of a lane departure when a turn signal isn't used and can automatically steer to maintain lane position)
  • Lane keeping system (makes minor steering corrections to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane)

    Infiniti Q60 vs. the competition

    2021 BMW 4 Series

    Infiniti Q60 vs. BMW 4 Series

    Based on BMW's venerable 3 Series, the 4 Series is a hard yardstick for any competitor, and the Q60 falls short in a few key areas, notably handling and interior refinement. The Q60's aging chassis design isn't as agile as the BMW's recently updated architecture, so driving through twists and turns will be quite a bit more fun in the 4 Series. There's also the consistent comfort of BMW's seats and cabin plus its more modern infotainment system. Of course, the BMW also costs much more than the Q60, and there's no small matter of its polarizing front-end looks.

    Infiniti Q60 vs. Lexus RC 350

    Choosing between the Q60 and the RC 350 comes down to some details. The Q60 offers more torque because of its turbocharged engine, while the RC offers a little more trunk space. The Lexus is quiet and refined, even a bit boring. One RC 350 advantage? More standard advanced driving assistance and collision avoidance technologies.

    Infiniti Q60 vs. Audi S5

    The Audi costs more than the Q60, but it's worth it if you can swing it. The S5's interior is considerably more refined and sophisticated, and that extends to its recently updated infotainment and digital display systems. The S5 is also a sheer delight to drive, with sharper, more precise handling than the Q60. This is especially true when the S5 is equipped with the optional S Sport package and dynamic steering. If you can afford the S5's higher cost, it's the way to go.

    2021 INFINITI Q60 First Impressions

    What is the Q60?

    The Infiniti Q60 is a luxury two-door coupe that knows how to make a first impression. Its many curves, swoops and chrome accents help the Q60 stand out even among higher-priced German competitors. It is based on the Nissan 370Z, another performance coupe with unique driving flavor, and adds a pair of turbocharged V6 engines packing up to 400 horsepower.

    The Q60, however, has trouble backing up its looks and muscle. We find the interior comfortable yet dated. It uses an electronic steering system that does not match the sporty feedback found in competing coupes, and the driver assistance technologies are not as effective either. It also lacks a convertible version.

    Infiniti introduced its dual-screen infotainment system to the Q60 in 2020, which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, plus a Wi-Fi hotspot. We expect the brand to ride this improved version of the Q60 into 2021 while it prepares a new generation for the 2022 model year. That 2022 Q60 should come with all-wheel drive and Nissan's e-Power motor-generator hybrid powertrain. Until then, the 2021 Q60 will likely carry on unchanged.

    EdmundsEdmunds says

    The 2021 Infiniti Q60 has a striking presence even though its styling is several years old now. We're still fans of its approach to luxury muscle. However, its competitors are both more exciting to drive and offer more modern technology and interior design. Infiniti fans should hold their breath for the 2022 version that promises a big leap forward.

    Should I lease or buy a 2021 INFINITI Q60?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
