The Infiniti Q60 is a quick, responsive, attractive coupe with a decent exhaust note and rarity thrown in for good measure. The rear seats cater well for kids.
Running costs, fuel consumption and emissions are high, while residual values could be low. This entry-level trim misses out on leather upholstery.
On the road
What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is
The 316bhp 3.7-litre V6 ensures this coupe isn’t just about sporty looks – it’s an absolute powerhouse, with speed building rapidly right across the rev range. The six-speed manual gearbox is slick, although the optional seven-speed auto changes more slowly than the modern-day DSG or dual-clutch systems in rival models, even in ‘sport’ mode or when using the sequential-shift function.
Ride & Handling
Whether you want to cruise for hundreds of miles or have some fun on twisty roads, the Q60 Coupe can do it all. It’s composed along the motorway, yet fluid through tight and sweeping corners alike. Add well balanced handling and nicely weighted steering, and the Q60 Coupe is extremely capable. Top-end cars also have a limited-slip differential and rear-wheel steering for even better cornering. However, the firmer suspension of the S model can be rather unforgiving.
The Q60 isn’t the quietest of coupe cruisers, but the booming exhaust note – and lovely V6 howl when you step on the throttle - is all part of its fun factor. There’s a little tyre noise from the firmer-riding S, and some wind noise, but it is generally quiet and well-behaved at motorway speeds.
