The coupe versions of their respective sedans have comparatively lesser popularity among the American crowd. However, the Infiniti Q60 is an attractive entry-level luxury coupe and is also equipped with a potent V6 engine. It has a comfortable ride and a very stylish exterior design that makes it stand out in the segment. Just about when things start to look promising, its dated and cramped interior ruins the show.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Features

7.0/10

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 is available in three trims which are 3.0t Pure, 3.0t Luxe and Red Sport 400. The Pure is the base trim and it comes with 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, 8-way power-adjustable front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leatherette seat upholstery, dual-touchscreen infotainment system, 6-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration. 

Moving on to the Luxe will cost you $45,500. It gets you a sunroof, 13-speaker Bose audio system, and a few additional driver aids. Opting for the Luxe also unlocks a few additional packages which are not available on the Pure trim. The Essential package will fetch you a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, memory settings for the driver’s seat, remote ignition, Wi-Fi hotspot compatibility, and also a navigation system. 

Another package available is the Leather Seating package. As the name suggests, it adds a premium quality leather upholstery. The ProAssist package will get you front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree camera system, reverse automatic braking, etc. A newly added package the Edition 30 will get you all the features in the Essential and ProAssist packages along with adaptive cruise control and also unique exterior and interior trims.

Which Trim should you buy?

The most attractive trim is the mid-range Luxe trim. Not only does it add some more features to the ones existing in the Pure trim but it also becomes eligible to avail some exciting additional packages. Furthermore, it is $13,000 cheaper than the flagship trim Red Sport 400.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 comes in two engine options. The lower two trims are fitted with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine under their hood. It is capable of producing 300 horsepower and has a max torque output of 295 pound-feet. This engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission while the power can be delivered to the rear as standard or to all four wheels. The top-tier trim Red Sport 400 is fitted with a more powerful 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine which is rated at 400 hp and has a peak torque of 350 lb-ft.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Engine bay

It is by far the most powerful engine in the segment but not quite the fastest. The V6 found in the Pure and Luxe trims takes 6.0 seconds to reach the 60 mph mark and 15.9 seconds to complete a quarter-mile. Opting for the Red Sport 400 will change things as it shaves off a second from the 0-60 mph sprint. Both the engines get a top speed of 155 mph which is on par with the segment standards. Opting for the AWD drivetrain will increase the timings by a fraction of a second.

Besides the 2020 Infiniti Q60, all other coupes in this segment are fitted with a smaller turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Out of those, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is the most powerful. However, the BMW 4-series is the fastest in the segment in terms of 0-60 mph and quarter-mile times. The Audi on the other hand has more affordable pricing and obviously comes with the Quattro all-wheel drive as standard. 

How well does the 2020 Infiniti Q60 handle?

The 300 hp V6 has strong acceleration accompanied by seamless smooth shifts. The steering is a tad bit lighter but the feedback is decent and the wheels respond to it quite accurately. The double-wishbone type front suspension and the multi-link type rear suspension is admirable but it simply can’t match the adaptive suspension found in the Red Sport 400. It is a comfortable cruiser as it can take on road imperfections easily and offers a composed and supple ride in most daily commute scenarios.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Acceleration

The available Direct Adaptive Steering system is a disappointment though as it offers no feedback, responds inconsistently, and overall does not inspire much confidence while driving. Even without that, the car doesn’t feel all that sporty as it can travel at high speeds on straights but hit a corner and you will feel the superiority of the Germans. Even with the optional steering, there is more work to be done when cornering hard, hence it is better to be used as a cruiser than a sports car. 

2020 INFINITI Q60 Braking Performance

The braking is precise on the 2020 Infiniti Q60 regardless of the trim and type of brakes. The braking duties are taken care of by 12.6-inch front brake rotors and 12.1-inch rear brake rotors that halt the Q60 at a braking distance of 121 feet in the 60-0 mph panic braking test.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Wheel

Wheels respond to the force put on the brake pedals instantly but observation suggests that harsh braking tends to make the 2020 Q60 go sideways which can turn out to be dangerous if not taken utmost caution.

These brakes on the Q60 might not be the biggest in the segment as coupes like the 2020 Audi A5 offer 13.3-inch front and 13.0-inch rear brake rotors. The lightest in the segment is the C-Class coupe which weighs over 200 pounds less than the Q60. That being said, the 2020 BMW 4-Series coupe is the one that has the shortest stopping distance of just 105 feet while the Infiniti is the one that travels the farthest in the panic braking test.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 is available in both RWD and AWD configurations. The fuel economy provided by the base V6 engine with the RWD is mentioned in the table below. The AWD drivetrain drops the figures by 1 mpg. The RWD does 22 mpg (combined) while the AWD manages 21 mpg (combined). The Red Sport 400 is fitted with a more powerful variant of the same engine. This, however, does not affect its mileage. A large 20-gallon fuel tank puts its driving range well over 560 miles on the highway.

The fuel efficiency provided by the Q60 is the worst in its class. The best-in-class fuel economy is found in the 2020 Audi A5 coupe and 2020 BMW 4-Series coupe. They both share a combined fuel efficiency of 27 mpg (combined). Despite its comparatively low fuel economy, the 2020 Infiniti Q60 provides the best-in-class range thanks to its 20-gallon fuel tank. It can go up to a distance of 440 miles (combined) which saves it from being a complete loser in this category.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Interior

7.0/10

The only place to be inside the 2020 Infiniti Q60, is the driver’s seat. It is not designed for passenger comfort. Its performance-oriented nature makes the cabin experience subpar at best. The dashboard and center console have been designed elegantly. It features an eye-catching dual-touchscreen display and some well-labeled buttons and knobs placed below. 

2020 Infiniti Q60 Seating

The seats are performance bucket seats which are leatherette upholstered in the lower trims, whereas the Red Sport 400 gets premium quality leather upholstery. Leatherette trims are also seen on the dashboard door panels, etc and you’ll also see a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The front seats are spacious but the space is confined in the rear seats. 

Compared to the front row, the rear row has less headroom and legroom which is not well-suited for tall adults. The front seats are 8-way power adjustable and functions like heating and memory settings are available only on higher trims or as a part of additional packages. Opting for the Edition 30 package gets you unique interior styling. At the rear, you get 8.7 cu-ft of cargo space.

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 has one of the worst cargo spaces ever seen in a car’s trunk. It offers only 8.7 cubic feet of cargo space which is barely anything. It is quite obvious that all of its rivals provide better storage space in their respective trunks. The 2020 BMW 4-Series has the best space in the segment. It can hold up to 15.7 cubic feet of space which is almost double that of the Q60. Cabin space is pretty much the same in all the coupes in this comparison. Standout interior features in the 2020 INFINITI Q60 are:

  • 8-way power driver seat w/power lumbar support, driver power torso bolsters, and memory seating
  • Driver and Passenger Power Rear Seat Easy Entry
  • Full Folding Bench Fold Forward Rear Seat
  • Semi-Aniline Leather-Appointed Seating
  • Leatherette Upholstered Dashboard and Door Trim Insert with Carbon Fiber inlays and Chrome/Aluminum Interior Accents
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Power Tilt/Telescoping Steering Column w/Auto Tilt-Away Leather Steering Wheel
  • Memory Settings for Door Mirrors and Steering Wheel

What’s there to keep you entertained?

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 features an unusual and rare dual-touchscreen display as its infotainment system. The upper screen is an 8-inch display while the lower is a 7-inch display. They are powered by Infiniti’s INTOUCH technology that includes a generous list of features. The system is intuitive with a user-friendly interface and good screen resolution. The buttons and knobs used to help you browse through the functions are small in size but well-labeled.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Infotainment Display

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are now standard on all trims. Satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, 2 USB ports are some more standard features seen across all trims. The base trim is fitted with a 6-speaker audio system while the Luxe and Red Sport 400 get a 13-speaker Bose audio system of premium sound quality. Standout infotainment features in the 2020 INFINITI Q60 are:

  • 8.0-inch touchscreen HD infotainment system
  • Bluetooth
  • Satellite radio
  • Voice recognition
  • SiriusXM Traffic
  • 13-speaker Bose Centerpoint Surround audio system (Luxe and Red Sport 400)

  • Wi-Fi Hotspot compatibility (Luxe and Red Sport 400)
  • Navigation system (optional)

2020 Infiniti Q60 Exterior

8.0/10

There’s no doubt that the 2020 Infiniti Q60 is a looker. It has an unusual exterior styling and shape which is somewhere between that of a sedan and a coupe. Apart from its out-of-the-box shape, the aggressive and sporty features make it one of the most attractive coupes in the segment. The front side of the car is characterized by a sloping hood, a trapezoidal grille with the Infiniti logo in the middle, sleek and aggressive projector-beam LED daytime running headlamps, LED fog lamps, etc.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Side View

The side of the car is probably the most attractive profile of the car. It is when you notice the body lines, the aerodynamic coupe design, and a dramatically sloping roofline. It also features 19-inch aluminum wheels, heated power adjusting manual-folding side-view mirrors, 4.9-inch ground clearance. The sloping roofline sets the tone for a beautifully designed rear end. It all starts with uniquely shaped LED taillights. A cheeky rear lip spoiler, body-colored rear bumper with air dams, and circular chrome-tipped dual exhausts complete the rear fascia of the 2020 Infiniti Q60.

It is also the lightest coupe in this class, weighing 3527 pounds. The 2020 Infiniti Q60 however, has the longest wheelbase among its rivals which translates to better interior space but its cargo space takes a hit. Standout exterior features are:

  • Automatic projector-beam LED daytime running headlamps
  • LED fog lamps and tail lights
  • Power Heated Auto Dimming Side Mirrors w/Tilt Down and Turn Signal Indicator
  • Rear lip spoiler
  • Chrome Grille and Side Windows Trim

2020 Infiniti Q60 Safety

9.0/10

Unfortunately, the 2020 Infiniti Q60 has been crash-tested by any of the federal authorities. To give you a small insight, its sedan version of the Q50 has been tested in some aspects. It earned a 4-star rating in some tests held by the NHTSA and the IIHS scored it “Good” in some of its categories as well.

Also, Infiniti is not as generous as its German rivals when it comes to the amount of standard safety and driver-assist features. It still does not offer automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring system as standard in its lower trim whereas most of its rivals do. Only the top-tier trim, Red Sport 400 is well-equipped with features like adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and lane-keep assist. Standout safety features are:

  • Cruise control
  • Electronic stability control
  • Driveline traction control and ABS
  • Tire pressure monitoring system
  • Front and rear parking sensors (optional)
  • Forward collision warning (optional)
  • Blind-spot monitoring system (optional)
  • 360-degree camera system (optional)

2020 Infiniti Q60 Competition

7.0/10

2020 Infiniti Q60 vs 2020 Audi A5 Coupe

The 2020 Audi A5 is one of the better-known coupes in the American market. It is popular for its German engineering and its luxuriously well-appointed interior. The A5 coupe is the most closely matched rival of the 2020 Infiniti Q60 in terms of price point. The A5 has better safety scores, is better equipped with safety features than the Q60, and has a class-leading fuel economy. It also has one of the segment's best handling, which makes the 2020 Audi A5 coupe a highly desirable car.

2020 Infiniti Q60 vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

Among the 2020 Infiniti Q60’s rivals, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe has the most expensive base price. However, it has a high reputation and popularity because of its reliability, enthusiastic behind-the-wheel experience, and comfortable and luxurious interior. Despite the Q60’s power figures, the Merc offers a more calm and composed ride with better fuel economy. Besides being affordable and having attractive exterior styling, the Q60 doesn’t have a lot going for it against the Merc.

2020 Infiniti Q60 vs 2020 BMW 4-Series

Brand value is what the German giants bring to the table. This is quite unmatched by the less popular Infiniti. The 2020 BMW 4-Series is the sportiest among the 2020 Infiniti Q60’s rivals. It offers a class-leading fuel economy just like the A5. Its interior and cabin experience is much better than the Q60. For the price point, the BMW also offers more standard features than the Q60, which makes it a better value-for-money deal. It has the best trunk space to store your luggage. The 4-Series is clearly the better coupe.

2020 Infiniti Q60 Final Verdict

7.8/10

Infiniti has made a genuine effort to think out-of-the-box when they introduced the Q60 to American buyers. It has definitely captured our attention when it comes to looks but as far as the performance, handling, and interior go, it is better to consider the Germans. It is outperformed in categories like fuel economy, interior space, and quality, storage capacity, safety scores, etc. The new Infiniti Q60 is the most affordable coupe in the segment but by spending just a little more, you’ll be getting a much better deal by opting for one of its German rivals.
