2020 Infiniti Q60 Review

  • Red Sport 400's powerful engine
  • Plenty of value for a luxury coupe
  • Available all-wheel drive for all trims
  • Cabin is showing its age
  • Trunk is small, even for a luxury coupe
  • Not as engaging to drive as most rivals
  • New infotainment system
  • New Edition 30 package celebrates Infiniti's 30th anniversary
  • Upgraded interior materials for Q60 Red Sport 400
  • Part of the second Q60 generation introduced for 2017

Based purely on exterior styling, you could argue that the 2020 Infiniti Q60 is the most appealing luxury sport coupe out this year. Balancing the right amount of bling with artful detailing and proper proportions, the Q60 easily stands out compared to more staid-looking German coupes.

Unfortunately, things start to go downhill after that. Inside, you'll find quality materials in some of the top Q60 trim levels, but the overall design looks tired and dated. Luxury buyers seeking a high-tech interior will be disappointed, for instance. Just this year, Infiniti finally got around to updating the car's dual-screen InTouch infotainment system. It now supports Apple CarPlay and  Android Auto smartphone integration and a Wi-Fi hotspot connection, but it's still dated and frustrating to use.

As for the sporty bits, the Q60's standard turbocharged V6 delivers effortless power and acceleration. But there is little evidence of the engine note, a key component of enthusiast driver satisfaction. For maximum performance, you'll want to go with the Red Sport 400 trim, which is more powerful and has a performance-tuned adaptive suspension. Still, it can’t quite match the level of fun you’d have in other luxury sport coupes.

Overall, the Germans know how to get the little luxury and performance details down best. The Audi A5/S5, BMW 4 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class are easy to recommend over this Infiniti. Unless, of course, you want eye-catching design or prefer to drive something different from what everyone else buys. In that case, the 2020 Q60 is worth checking out.

Which Q60 does Edmunds recommend?

If you're buying a Q60, we recommend the 3.0t Luxe trim level. It offers the most flexibility in terms of price and equipment. You can get the Luxe trim with everything Infiniti offers for the Q60 except for the top Red Sport 400's performance upgrades and optional ProActive package. We suggest avoiding this ProActive package on the Red Sport 400, if that's what you're getting, since it has a different steering system that completely lacks feel for the road and reduces the fun you'll have driving the Red Sport 400.

INFINITI Q60 models

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 comes in three trim levels: 3.0t Pure, 3.0t Luxe and Red Sport 400. As the base model, the Pure offers a decent collection of features. The Luxe adds a premium stereo plus greater access to optional packages. The Red Sport 400 stands out with its powerful engine and a sport-tuned suspension. All Q60s are equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional.

The 3.0t Pure is equipped with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine (300 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque) and comes with 19-inch wheels, LED headlights and foglights, heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats and simulated leather upholstery. A dual-touchscreen infotainment interface (8-inch upper screen, 7-inch lower) includes Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, two USB ports and a six-speaker sound system.

Stepping up to the 3.0t Luxe adds a sunroof, a 13-speaker Bose surround-sound system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a forward collision warning system with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking.

While the Luxe doesn't bestow much additional standard equipment, it does grant access to options not available on the Pure. The Essential package adds auto-dimming outside mirrors, a power-adjustable and heated steering wheel, heated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, remote engine starting, Infiniti InTouch emergency communications services, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a navigation system.

An available Leather Seating package for the Luxe adds premium leather upholstery, while the ProAssist package includes front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, blind-spot monitoring, reverse automatic braking and automatic wipers.

New for 2020, the Edition 30 package includes the Essential and ProAssist packages and adds unique exterior and interior appearance items plus adaptive cruise control.

The Red Sport 400 sits atop the 2020 Q60 lineup and delivers the most potent performance of any Q60 variant. It's equipped with a more powerful turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine (400 hp, 350 lb-ft), 20-inch wheels, performance tires, more powerful brakes, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension and transmission paddle shifters. In addition, the Red Sport 400 includes sport-bolstered seats and the contents of the Essential, Leather Seating and ProAssist packages.

A single option package is available on the Red Sport: the ProActive package. The ProActive package includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane centering, active blind-spot monitoring, adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, an air purifier, and electronically controlled steering (Infiniti's Direct Adaptive Steering).

4/5 stars, Refined Power and Limited Technology
PG,
RED SPORT 400 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7A)
If you are a returning Infiniti customer and you enjoyed the benefits of using the InTouch Services app on your phone, be prepared to loose all of that functionality. Right now, this FLAGSHIP car doesn't work with the current version of the app. So (from within the app), you lose Remote Start (from anywhere), Find My Vehicle, Send Directions to Car, Vehicle Health Report, Valet Mode, Curfew alerts, Perimeter alerts, and Speed alerts. Yes, you would pay extra to have these features, but the fact that these are no longer an option is FRUSTRATING. There are other aspects of the onboard software that were modified (or, eliminated) to accommodate Apple & Android Car Play. Like most of all the other reviews I read or viewed, the power of the vehicle is outstanding... it just doesn't sound like it. This vehicle in Sport+ mode should make a lot more exhaust noise. The Suspension in this vehicle is different from all of the other Infiniti vehicles... and this is a good thing in my book. It handles rough surfaces very well. My vehicle came with the exterior Carbon Fiber package which, for over $2280, is not worth it. The paddle shifters in this car are a nice black color, but they are plastic... however, they are very responsive and the downshift rev matching is great. This car does not come with upgraded floor mats, which was very surprising, as, again, the Q60 Red Sport AWD is a flagship vehicle. Very powerful engine, yet comfortable to drive. Sometimes, it's exhilarating, but not exactly fun... I'd opt for an Audi TTS for that.
4/5 stars, A sleek, beautiful coupe
Christian,
RED SPORT 400 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7A)
I agree with reviewers that this car is far behind the competition in terms of technological prowess. But what the Germans have forgotten is that a vehicle is more than just a spectacular interior...it needs to LOOK the part too. I have found that the materials inside are nice and that the lighting is sleek and understated especially with the silver optic fiber trim and red leather. Ultimately, do we really care about a digital gauge cluster that much? She is a little porky but many of the drawbacks can be fixed: different tires, a performance exhaust. Fix those things and pick up a Red Sport for under 40K and you have the best looking car under about 65K but you paid almost 30K less...Seriously. Everything else worth driving is over 75K - Lexus LC500, used Jaguar F-Type R...

2020 INFINITI Q60 video

[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER: First, Infiniti had the G35. Then it went G37, and now there's this, the Q60. They're trying to hit the same success that the G35 and the G37 had, although with a completely different name. And that's kind of a bummer, because I just like the way G35 and G37 sounded. One thing to be appreciative though, this is one of the Japanese luxury brands that's actually doing some kind of my things with design, as Lexus is getting all heavy on the grill. You could say, they're reaching peak grill. Infiniti's actually doing a pretty nice job of keeping the lines of this car clean and still making it look more dynamic and sporty. Now, sporty this is. It has a three engine choices: a turbo charged inline four that does about 208 horsepower. There's two twin turbo V6 options, one with 300 horsepower, and one with 400 horsepower. Now, standard is rear drive, all wheel drive is optional, and a seven speed automatic is the only transmission choice, which is kind of a bummer. But that's kind of the way things are going. Now, this is the turbo three liter model. It has the displacement of the twin turbo V6s, but let's take a look inside to see how that's evolved as well. [MUSIC PLAYING] You see kind of malfunction warnings and stuff. And that's just because we're at an auto show and they have to do weird things to keep these cars powered up all day. Two analog gauges from the digital display in the center. A nice steering wheel. I like the thin spokes on the side here, and the way that works. These Q60 models have had a direct steer system, I forget the official name Infiniti call it. But it sort of left the driving experience a little numb. And they have a new version in this car that they are promising will behave a bit better, and we're eager to test that out as soon as we get a chance. The center stack here, you actually have two screens. You have the nav display up here, which can also display a couple other things, if I recall correctly. And then you have another display down here, which is a capacitive sort of touch screen thing here. This offers some configuration and some adjustability, but it is a little bit clunkier than we've seen in some other cars of this type. Now, there's your shifter of course, with your requisite Infiniti logo, because how could you ever forget? Storage is kind of similar to what you see way back to even the G35. And then you also have additional selections down here. This controls that in the nav screen. And this is a drive mode selector, this will adjust between-- let's go back up here so you can see-- a lot of different variations in the way the car will handle. Your cup holders, of course. And what's nice is you have two USB ports and auxiliary input. And there's your nav SD. And kind of tight on the capacity for stuff. So you might say there isn't really a place to put your phone that isn't a cup holder or the center console. But you also have a nice sunroof up here. As this is a coupe, we can't really get in the back. But we do have back seats. Of course, space is going to be pretty tight, as you can probably expect in a car of this type.

2020 Lexus RC 350

Infiniti Q60 vs. Lexus RC 350

The decision between the Q60 and the RC 350 comes down to styling and personal preferences. The Q60 offers greater driving range between fuel stops, while the RC offers a little more trunk space. The Infiniti's infotainment system is easier to use, but that's not saying much since neither car ranks well in this regard. You do get more standard advanced driving assistance and collision avoidance technologies with the Lexus.

Infiniti Q60 vs. Audi S5

The Audi is also more technologically sophisticated in comparison to the Infiniti, especially for 2020 with its new infotainment and digital instrumentation systems. Plus, the Audi S5 is a sheer delight to drive, especially when 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.

Infiniti Q60 vs. BMW 4 Series

The BMW 4 Series dates to 2014 and is due for replacement soon, but it's a better driver's car than the Infiniti Q60. It's comparatively stark and austere in terms of design, but the 4 Series is more engaging to drive and thumps out plenty of power in its six-cylinder 440i spec. Plus, like the Audi S5, you can get the BMW as a convertible as well as a coupe. The Infiniti Q60 only comes as a coupe.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 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.
