The 2014 INFINITI Q60—known formerly as the G37—is available as a coupe and hardtop convertible with performance-focused hardware such as an optional six-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel drive, and a 330-horsepower V6.
The INFINITI Q60 has an edge over many higher priced competitors in terms of sheer power and bang for the buck. This comes at some cost, though—INFINITI's sports model returns some of the lowest real-world fuel economy numbers in their segment.
What's New for 2014
Beyond the adoption of INFINITI's Q-centric nomenclature and a new Venetian Ruby exterior color, the INFINITI Q60 carries over essentially unchanged from last year's G37 coupe and convertible.
Choosing Your INFINITI Q60
Under the hood beats the pulse of the latest incarnation of Nissan’s renowned VQ35-series all-aluminum DOHC V6 engine, punched out to 3.7 liters and good for 330 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Transmission choices include a standard seven-speed automatic or close-ratio six-speed manual. Depending on transmission and drive type—all-wheel drive is optional on coupes—fuel economy ranges from a low of 16 mpg city to a high of 27 mpg highway.
Once you decide on coupe or retractable convertible, you'll find that the value-oriented Q60 offers xenon headlights, keyless access with push-button start, and heated front seats as standard equipment.
Also included in the base price is dual-zone climate control, an 8-way power driver's seat, a backup camera and a six-speaker audio system with a USB port for portable music players.
Most optional features are bundled together into four option packages: Premium, Sport, Navigation and Technology. Assorted highlights include a viscous limited-slip differential for the hardcore driving enthusiast, navigation with 3D building icons and traffic overlays, a highly-recommended 11-speaker Bose premium audio system, a supremely comfortable 12-way driver's seat with thigh extension for long-legged drivers, and an advanced air-filtration system complete with ionic and odor-reducing purifiers.
The Q60 delivers value and a lot of features standard compared to German and Japanese rivals. We recommend the base vehicle with carefully chosen options like the Bose Premium audio system.
