The 2021 Infiniti Q60 is a 2 door sport luxury coupe and convertible manufactured by Japanese automaker Infiniti. 2021 Infiniti Q60 is the successor to the Infiniti G coupe and convertible. The 2021 Q60 is a beauty that does nothing to upend that paradigm. The Infiniti coupe’s bodywork is both graceful and muscular, which make it one of the prettiest models in a class that also includes the Audi A5 and the polarizing BMW 4-series. The brawniest Infiniti Q60 makes 400 horsepower, every version features a strong twin-turbo V-6 and either rear or all-wheel drive.
Unfortunately, the Q60’s standard dual-screen infotainment system is convoluted. The top and bottom screens respond to touch inputs, but the upper screen can also be manipulated via a rotary controller on the center console. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are standard, and a Bose audio system as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot are optional.
Infiniti Q60 Interior
The Infiniti Q60 coupe has a cabin full of classy materials, including metal and soft-touch leather and faux leather surfaces. The coupe also lacks the stretch-out space that many others in this class offer, which contributes to an interior that feels cramped. Still, the Q60 can be equipped with an assortment of desirable features such as upgraded leather upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, and a power-adjustable steering wheel. Interior cubby storage is mostly limited to the door pockets and a bin at the front of the center stack.
Synthetic leather upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable front seats come standard. The Q60 sacrifices interior space for style compared to its four-door Q50 equivalent. Seating capacity is down to four instead of the Q50’s five, and the Q60 has at least 2.0 fewer inches of headroom front and rear. Front/rear legroom measures 43.1/32.4 inches compared to 44.5/35.1 in the Q50 sedan and 41.3/32.7 in the Audi A5 coupe. Cargo space suffers, too, with the Q60 rated at 8.7 cubic feet in the trunk next to the Q50’s 13.5 cubes and 10.9 in the A5 coupe, although larger items can be accommodated with the fold-down rear seat.
Infiniti’s dual-screen infotainment system can be found in every Q60. Up top is an 8.0-inch touchscreen with a 7.0-inch touchscreen positioned below it. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all trims, plus satellite radio capability. Six-speaker audio is standard on the base model, but all other trims feature a 13-speaker Bose system.
Infiniti 2021 Q60 Engine
Every Q60 makes use of a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 mated to a seven-speed automatic, with standard RWD and available AWD. In the Pure and Luxe trims, the engine develops 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. When we tested our long-term Q60 with the 300-hp V-6 and RWD, it reached 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. Fuel economy measures 19/27-28 mpg city/highway. Dropping the extra cash for the Q60 Red Sport 400 earns you a tune of the twin-turbo V-6 that makes (you guessed it) 400 hp and 350 lb-ft. The more powerful version motivated the Q60 to 60 in 4.8 seconds during our 2018 Car of the Year evaluation. It suffers no significant fuel economy penalty for its extra power; the Q60 Red Sport 400 delivers 19-20/26-27 mpg.
2021 Infiniti Q60 Safety
Infiniti doesn’t include any driver-assist active safety features on the base Q60 Pure, but a collection of tech is standard on Pure and Red Sport models for 2021. For those two trims, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, automatic high-beams, rear cross-traffic alert, and a 360-degree camera system are now standard.
