I traded a 2014 Corvette on the 2017 Q60....although completely different vehicles, I have much better ease of access with the Q60. Accelaration is fast, super fast. A great vehicle for driving in today's Interstate traffic.Still waiting on the crash ratings, but I feel very safe in the vehicle. If you are considering a true sports car with related performance, do yourself a favor and test drive the Q60. Lee Shore, Charlotte, NC
First of all, this is our fourth Infiniti. My wife and I like the brand a lot. We had two EX35's (too long in the tooth now despite some recent upgrades), and a Q50 sedan (one of the first). The sedan suffered from excessive wind noise from around both front doors....very irksome on the Interstate after a while. Apparently many Q50's suffered a similar problem (the Q60 suffers a bit but I can live with it). Apart from that the Q50 was an excellent car with great performance. Lease was almost up and Infiniti offered to make the last three payments for us if we got another car. What I like about Infiniti (and Lexus also) is that their designs are so good that they don't need to keep changing them. The previous coupe was around for a long time so if you keep the Q60 for 6 years you still have a current design. We leased again. My wife is a realtor and wants to look professional when she turns up for appointments. My opinion of the design of the new Q60 coupe....gorgeous; the only way to describe it and better in the flesh than in the photos (where it still looks darned good). The proportions are perfect, the stance just right, the alloy wheels....stunning. We have the pearlescent (Majestic) white which looks just awesome. Definitely better in a light color because of the beautiful dark allows which pop against the white paintwork. Perfection on wheels. I was concerned about poor vision and blind spots in the coupe but actually it is not an issue at all. The car is a joy to drive with the 300hp engine. It sits purposefully lower than the sedan and rides on 19in wheels so it is a little firm but the steering is excellent (the Q50 was a little lifeless and vague) and the car is plenty responsive. Minimal turbo lag. Too early to comment on gas mileage but I don't expect much of an improvement over the sedan. Most of our journeys are fairly short so that will do us no favors. At the end of the day, the 3 year old Q50 sedan only had 19000 miles so we will not be high mileage drivers even when my Mazda lease is up and we don't replace it to become a one car household. I work from home exclusively now so a second car is not required. Anyway, we love this Q60. Any car that brings a smile to my face is going to be good. That doesn't happen too often. My Audi S3 in England had the same effect. So, anyone in the market for a hot-looking coupe with more than enough power and refinement, get a Q60. You won't regret it...totally beautiful car.
I just upgraded from my G37-sport, and I love the Q60. This is a better car in every way. I'm not sure why the critics hate this car, because the car is great. The fun factor is through the roof. Don't buy the 2.0t, you will miss the V6 3.0t. I bought the Q60 3.0t base model (msrp$45k) for $7k off. This is the best drivers car under $40k, except for the Mazda Miata.
I had B8 S4, N55 135i and mk6 Golf R with stage 2 and lot of other cars... but I really think this 3.0T Q60 Awd(non Red sport) accelerates and turns better. Puts out 100% touque to the rear and turns better than 135i. Also with driver assist package makes it much safer feeling and it's a frickin sexy luxury car. I'm extremely satisfied.
This is a great car if you are looking for a combination of sporty and luxe with good acceleration and great looks. It turns heads. Even like it better than Mercedes SL55AMG I recently sold. The AWD was a key factor in looking at this car for the occasional snow we get in Denver.
