2017 INFINITI Q60 Expert Review

By

Straddling the line between dedicated sports cars and luxury coupes, the completely revamped 2017 Infiniti Q60 is much more than just a pretty face. Beyond its drop-dead gorgeous exterior, the Q60 charms with a comfortably sporty interior, optional twin-turbo V6, and industry-first steer-by-wire system, all of which help it bring the fight directly to longtime segment standouts like the BMW 4 Series, Lexus RC, Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe.

You'll Like This Car If...

It’s difficult to think of a luxury-performance coupe that combines all the qualities of the Infiniti Q60 for less than $45,000. So, if you’re in the market for an ultra-stylish luxury coupe with genuine sporting credentials, the 2017 Q60 might be the ticket.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Though upscale, the Q60’s interior trails that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A5 when it comes to refinement, materials quality and infotainment. To that end, the Q60 lacks premium feature content like an electronic parking brake, ventilated front seats, a power-operated trunk or head-up display.

How It Ranks

The Infiniti Q60 has been totally revamped for the 2017 model year. Due to poor sales figures, though, the Q60 convertible has been discontinued.

Driving Impressions

With no physical connection between the wheel in your hand and the wheels on the road, arguably the biggest story here is the Q60’s optional steer-by-wire system. An engineering marvel...

... it may be, but in a sports-car context, Adaptive Direct Steering, as it’s known, leaves a lot to be desired in terms of feedback and predictability. As a result, we recommend pocketing that extra $1,000 and sticking to the conventional steering unit. In corners, both the standard suspension and 2-mode adaptive system boast ample rigidity for rapid directional changes while also providing enough compliance for soaking up light road imperfections. At higher speeds the cabin is well-isolated from road and wind noise, and sightlines are surprisingly good for such an aggressively styled coupe.

BOSE PERFORMANCE SERIES AUDIO
This 13-speaker sound system delivers exceptional high-frequency output and tonal accuracy. Not only that, but the metal speaker grilles are just as functional as they are beautiful.

REVERSE AUTOMATIC BRAKING
No one enjoys backing out of a congested parking lot. Thankfully, the Q60’s available reverse automatic braking system can apply the brakes before the possible collision with an object you may have never seen in the first place.

The Q60 boasts a generally well-crafted cabin with high-quality materials and unique trim elements like Infiniti’s exclusive Silver Optic Fiber scheme. Though rear headroom is not suitable for adults, legroom out back is shockingly acceptable, and the trunk can swallow a pair of small carry-ons. In terms of connectivity, the InTouch dual-screen infotainment platform is a bit of a mixed bag. Some functions respond without delay and others require two to three seconds for a reaction to occur. The upper navigation screen is much more responsive to both touch and remote inputs, though its mapping interface and graphics are a bit outdated.

Exterior

Only a handful of production models can wear a concept-car exterior and get away with it, and the Q60 is one of them. Bucking the “good from afar, but far from good” designs of late, a closer look reveals intricate touches and careful attention to detail ranging from drilled exhaust tips, to a 3D grille badge, to a unique aero bulge that begins in the grille and extends to the hood.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

Impressively well-equipped in base form, key standards consists of 19-inch wheels, keyless access with push-button start, a dizzying array of drive settings, LED headlights and taillights, an 8-way-power driver’s seat with manual lumbar support, a rearview camera, and a 6-speaker sound system tied to a dual-screen infotainment center. Sadly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available on any trim level.

Optional Equipment

Forget about sending your kids to college, and you can drive away with goodies like heated seats, a heated steering wheel, semi-aniline leather, navigation and a low-resolution 360-degree camera system. If active safety is on your mind, just know that lane-keeping assist, blind-spot intervention, adaptive cruise control, and predictive forward collision that can react to situations occurring in front of the vehicle ahead are available only on V6 models. Stepping up to the line-topping Red Sport lands you 400 horsepower, larger brakes, electronically controlled suspension and paddle shifters.

Under the Hood

The 2017 Infiniti Q60 2.0t and Premium 2.0t are powered by a, you guessed it, 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that produces 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Like every Q60, a 7-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive (RWD) are standard, but all-wheel drive (AWD) is available as a $2,000 option. Premium and Sport 3.0t models make use of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that generates 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, while Red Sport 400s employ an up-tuned version that cranks out an additional 100 horsepower and 55 lb-ft of torque with virtually no drop in fuel economy.

2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4
208 horsepower @ 5,500 rpm
258 lb-ft of torque @ 1,500-3,500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 22/30 mpg (RWD), 21/28 mpg (AWD)

3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6
300 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm
295 lb-ft of torque @ 1,600-5,200 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/28 mpg (RWD), 19/27 mpg (AWD)

3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6
400 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm
350 lb-ft of torque @ 1,600-5,200 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/27 mpg (RWD), 19/26 mpg (AWD)

Note: Due to changes in EPA testing to more effectively reflect real-world conditions, some 2017 models show slightly lower fuel-economy scores than their 2016 versions.

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) begin just shy of $40,000 and top out right around $60,000 for a fully loaded Red Sport 400. In base form, the Q60 undercuts rivals like the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe by more than $2,000 and comes with a longer list of standard equipment to boot. Besides the aforementioned 4 Series and C-Class, the Q60’s competitive set includes the well-rounded Audi A5 (starting at $42,000) and TT (starting at $44,000), the very nearly over-styled Lexus RC (starting at $41,000), and the brilliant but decidedly more expensive Porsche 718 Cayman (starting at $55,000). Before buying, be sure to check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for the new Q60. Things get a bit dicey on the resale front, as the 2017 Infiniti Q60 is expected to retain some of the lowest 5-year residual values in the category.
