The new Infiniti Q60 is a premium sports coupe the made its world premiere at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. The Q60 looks to be a rival for the BMW 4-Series and the Mercedes Benz C-Class coupe. While the Q60 is effectively a successor to the G37 Coupe, it’s a much smarter and more bespoke looking. And importantly it is pleasingly close to its concept, too.
Infiniti says the new car is lower and wider than the current Q60, with a lower center of gravity, and it is more powerful and efficient. Much has gone on with the rolling stock, too: tighter wheel gaps, staggered tires on some models, wheels designed to absorb road vibration, and optional 20-inch alloys available for the first time.
In the US, there are two engine choices with three levels of output. The twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 comes with either 400 hp and 350 lb-ft, or 300 hp and 295 lb-ft. This mean a boost of 70 hp and 80 lb-ft over the 3.7-liter V6 in the current car, and Infiniti estimates a combined fuel economy rating of 22 mpg. The 300-hp unit has a provisional rating of 23 mpg, the increased efficiency down to bodywork shaping and an active shutter behind the grille. A direct-injected, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo is the second engine, getting 208 hp and 258 lb-ft and an estimated 24 mpg in the US. All engines will shift through an adaptive seven-speed automatic transmission.
The cockpit comes in one of three trims depending on the model, with aluminum or black wood at the entry-level end, carbon fiber at the other end, and silver glass fiber for buyers who choose the white or red leather. Additional sound insulation and noise cancellation will keep things quieter, the Intuition infotainment system gets a faster brain, and a brand new 13-speaker Bose system slides onto the options page.
The 2017 Q60 will go on sale late in the summer of 2016.
