Pros

  • Driver assistance features work well together
  • Red Sport 400's powerful V6 engine
  • Plenty of value for a luxury coupe

Cons

  • Cabin is showing its age
  • Trunk is small, even for a luxury coupe
  • Not as engaging to drive as most rivals


Which Q60 does Edmunds recommend?

The sweet spot is the 3.0t Sport trim level. It offers a proper dose of thrust over the four-cylinder without reaching the ambitious price point of the Red Sport 400. We also like the Sport trim for its upgraded front seats and adaptive suspension dampers. Beware: All option packages require the Sensory package, itself a pricey way to get heated seats and navigation, among other features. Getting the ProAssist package is likely worthwhile for its added safety features. You get even more with the ProActive package, but it comes bundled with Infiniti's Direct Adaptive Steering system. We don't like the way the car's steering feels and responds when so equipped, so that could be a package to avoid.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The 2018 Infiniti Q60 can trace its roots back to the G35 (remember that car?), one of several vehicles built on Nissan's then-new FM platform. Though many changes have been phased in along the way, today's Q60 is still built on the FM platform. It has served Nissan and Infiniti well, spawning a host of SUVs, a sports car, sedans and coupes.

Today, the Q60 still manages to feel contemporary, though the interior betrays its older roots. The two screens in the center stack are from different eras, and the map graphics are dated. Still, this coupe's plentiful soft touch points show attention to detail, even if the theme could stand to be overhauled.

The Q60's top version is the Red Sport 400. Though it isn't as focused as German high-performance offerings, its twin-turbo V6 provides legitimate 400-horsepower thrust. There's also strong value to be found in the lower trim levels if your performance expectations are more relaxed.

Overall, we think the Q60 is a respectable choice for a luxury coupe. But given that it doesn't shine in any particular area, you might find fresher rivals such as the Audi A5/S5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe more appealing.

2018 INFINITI Q60 configurations

The 2018 Infiniti Q60 is a two-door luxury coupe that seats four people. There are five trim levels: 2.0t Pure, 2.0t Luxe, 3.0t Luxe, 3.0t Sport and Red Sport 400. The numbers reference what engine the Q60 gets, while Pure, Luxe and Sport versions deliver different feature seats. All Q60s are equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional.

The base 2.0t Pure is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (208 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque) and comes pretty well-equipped. Highlights include 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and foglights, heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, simulated leather upholstery, Bluetooth, a dual-touchscreen infotainment interface (8-inch upper screen, 7-inch lower), two USB ports, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and satellite radio. A sunroof is optional.

Stepping up to the 2.0t Luxe adds the sunroof plus a 13-speaker Bose audio system that includes HD radio. The 3.0t Luxe, the starting point for six-cylinder models, differs only through the substitution of the four-cylinder with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine (300 hp, 295 lb-ft) and larger brakes.

While Luxe models don't bestow much additional standard equipment, they grant access to options not available on the base model. The Sensory package adds auto-dimming outside mirrors, a power-adjustable and heated steering wheel, heated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, and Infiniti InTouch emergency communications services and navigation system.

The Leather Seating package adds leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seat side bolsters. The ProAssist package adds front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree parking camera system, blind-spot monitoring, reverse automatic braking, and a forward collision warning and automatic braking system.

The 3.0t Luxe is available with the ProActive package (requires all other available packages), which adds adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot intervention (it steers for you if you don't heed its warnings), a lane departure warning and intervention system, an air filtration system and Infiniti's Direct Adaptive Steering system.

There's also the 3.0t Sport, which comes with 19-inch forged alloy wheels, two-mode variable suspension dampers, the auto-dimming outside mirrors, leather upholstery, the power-adjustable driver seat bolsters and steering wheel, and driver-seat memory functions. Its Sensory package is essentially the same as the 3.0t Luxe version apart from those items already standard. It too can be equipped with the ProAssist and ProActive packages.

The Red Sport 400 sits atop the Q60 lineup and delivers the most potent performance of any Q60 variant. It's equipped similarly to the 3.0t Sport but has a more powerful 3.0-liter V6 engine (400 hp, 350 lb-ft) and 20-inch wheels with staggered summer tires.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet rated this vehicle, but we have limited experience with a preproduction model. The following is our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect. These observations are based on our initial drive of the2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 (turbo 3.0L V6 | 7-speed automatic | RWD).

Driving

The Red Sport's engine is outstanding and has plenty of power for all occasions. We're less fond of the optional Direct Adaptive Steering system, which feels overly disconnected and artificial. The Q60's handling is secure.

Comfort

The seats are good for road trips, though tall folks will find the seating position on the high side. The ride is firm but never harsh, and the damping is spot-on at higher speeds. The tires transmit what little noise is heard in the cabin.

Interior

You'll find an unusually high number of materials in the cabin but plenty of soft touch points. Access to the front seats is easy and space is plentiful — not so much for the back seats, which are too small to really be usable.

Utility

The trunk is small, even for a luxury coupe. There aren't many places in the cabin to swallow normal clutter, just cupholders, a modest console bin and shallow, plasticky door pockets.

Technology

The dual-screen layout is showing its age, with the map graphics looking out-of-date and the screens apparently from different eras. The lower touchscreen gives quick responses and has a reasonably intuitive screen flow. Many gray icons on certain screens are puzzling.

Great coupe with a nice look
DJ,05/31/2018
This car is fun to drive and I look forward to driving it everyday. I've owned many cars and this is by far the best. AC on off switch is toward the right side of the vehicle which is awkwardly place. Interior otherwise is stunning. Apple car play would make this my dream car. One major let down with Infiniti not having that on any of their models when Nissan does which seems kind of backwards. If you are looking for fast car with an attractive interior and exterior this is the one to go with.
Really Awesome Car
SamKaras,08/15/2018
This is my second Infiniti. I came back because I absolutely love the quality of their dealerships and the way they treat their customers. I've been driving my Q60 Redsport for over a year now, and it's still incredibly fun! The sport plus mode is insane, and I love using it on long country roads...BUT, I live in Chicagoland and the snow in the winter made my GT Mustang spin in circles- not this car. It grips the road and I feel completely safe (AWD). I can't say enough good things about this car. It's comfortable (even on long drives), fun to drive, not bad fuel economy...the tech they use in the center console is only average, so that's my only negative. I haven't had a single issue with this vehicle, and it's a first gen 2017. I'd buy this car again and again! Just FYI, I do not have the adaptive steering in this car and it's very responsive. I swear the brakes on this car saved my life once...and it looks HOT! People come up to me when I'm gassing up and ask me about the car. Sweeeet!

More about the 2018 INFINITI Q60

The 2018 Infiniti Q60 is a luxury coupe that's getting on in age but manages to have its charms. Pricing follows an orderly tiered system of trim levels and option packages. There are two trim levels for the base four-cylinder engine, two for the 300-hp V6-equipped variants and one for the top 400-hp model.

The 2018 Q60 is offered in 2.0t Pure, 2.0t Luxe, 3.0t Luxe, 3.0t Sport and Red Sport 400 guises. The base 2.0t is pretty well-equipped when it comes to comfort and convenience items, with standard heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, eight-way power front seats, a backup camera, Bluetooth, a dual-touchscreen infotainment interface and two USB ports.

Stepping up to the 2.0t Luxe gains you a sunroof, premium audio and an auto-dimming mirror, which doesn't sound like a stellar deal given the associated cash outlay. But when you consider that it allows access to a host of option packages, the equation changes somewhat. So the 2.0t Luxe is the version that will resonate with buyers who value creature comforts and driver assistance features over performance.

Those looking for more poke will gravitate to the 3.0t Luxe model, which adds a twin-turbo V6 but is otherwise similar to the 2.0t Luxe equipment-wise. Be aware that the ProActive package requires every other option package to be selected, making it a rather expensive proposition if you don't really care about the other stuff.

Despite its name, the 3.0t Sport doesn't have overt performance leanings. It is equipped with slightly more aggressive 19-inch wheels and adaptive suspension dampers, plus premium leather seat upholstery and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Still, it's the Q60 we recommend for its balance of performance, price and luxury.

At the top of the Q60 range sits the Red Sport 400. Its 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 is turned up to 400 hp, and it sits on 20-inch wheels with staggered summer tires.

Compared to other luxury coupes, the 2018 Infiniti Q60 has an attractive price point, provided some restraint is exercised when selecting option packages. Its sharp styling is an undeniably key attribute in this segment, too. When you're ready to purchase, Edmunds' outstanding shopping tools, advice and guidance will ensure you'll find your ideal 2018 Infiniti Q60.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 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.
