The 2023 Infiniti Q60 is a luxury 2-door sports coupe produced by Japanese automaker Infiniti. The Infiniti Q60 is available in Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport 400 trim levels. The turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine producing 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque powers the Pure and Luxe. The 2023 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 features a more powerful version of the same engine that delivers 400 hp and 350 lb-ft. Seven-speed automatic transmission, only transmission option. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.
The 2023 Q60 has a fairly smooth ride on the pavement. Handling consists of controlled body tilt, excellent handling, and powerful brakes. The standard steering system is also fine, but the direct adaptive steering available feels dull and unnatural. The Q60 runs a dual-touchscreen infotainment system. At the top, the 8.0-inch screen controls media, navigation, and connectivity. Below, the 7.0-inch unit is used for air conditioning and other vehicle functions.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard, with the latter gaining wireless functionality for 2022. Built-in navigation and Wi-Fi hotspot capability are optional or included depending on the equipment. Two front-row USB ports are standard. The base uses an underfloor-speaker audio system, while the high-end floors feature a 13-speaker Bose premium setup. The 360-degree parking camera system is also available.
2023 Infiniti Q60 : Interior
The Q60 203 Infiniti has a cabin filled with high-end materials such as leather and aluminum with an existing carbon fiber finish. However, the overall interior design seems a bit past its prime compared to more advanced competitors. The interior of the Q60 is attractive and offers high-quality materials, but the design is starting to look outdated. The couple also doesn’t have as much space as many other models in this class, adding to a cramped interior. Still, the Infiniti Q60 can be equipped with desirable features such as upgraded leather upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, and an electrically adjustable steering wheel. The interior compartment is mostly limited to door pockets and a trash can in front of the center console.
The top and bottom screens respond to touch inputs, but the top screen can also be switched via a rotary controller in the center console. New wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standards, and a Bose audio system and a Wi-Fi hotspot are optional.
2023 Infiniti Q60 : Engine
Q60 Infiniti comes standard with a 300 horsepower V6, but the Red Sport 400 model has a 400 horsepower V6. Both engines are paired with a smooth-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The base engine offers more than under normal driving conditions and delivers a healthy amount of power at all speeds. The Red Sport 400 is even more lively and the automatic transmission runs smoothly. The rear-wheel-drive Q60 base gets 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Those are enough points for a V6-engined car in the luxury small car class, but many competitors have four-cylinder engine options that provide better gas mileage. The rear-wheel-drive Q60 Red Sport gets 20/27 mpg city/highway. With AWD, gas mileage seems to have dropped a bit on all Q60 models.
2023 Infiniti Q60 : Safety
Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash-tested the 2023 Q60. Standard 2023 Infiniti Q60 key features include Adaptive cruise control, rearview camera, Blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, Pedestrian detection, parking sensors, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, perimeter parking camera system, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assistance.
