Most luxury car buyers favor comfy sedans, but those who insist on the flair of coupe can find it in the 2019 INFINITI Q60. To match its sporty looks, the Q60 offers a driver-oriented cockpit, standard twin-turbocharged V6 power, and classic rear-wheel-drive architecture.
What's New For 2019
INFINITI's 3.0-liter V6 now powers all models. The mid-level Luxe and line-topping Red Sport 400 gain forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. The previous Sensory Package is now known as the Essential Package, and comes standard on the Red Sport 400.
Choosing Your INFINITI Q60
Last year's four-cylinder has departed, leaving a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 as the sole engine. In base form, the V6 makes 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Red Sport 400 models receive a high-out version good for 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive come standard. All-wheel drive is available on all versions for $2,000.
With the standard drivetrain, the Q60 is EPA-rated at 19 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 combined. City and combined estimates are identical on the other variations, while highway efficiency drops by one or two mpg.
As in previous years, the Q60 is offered in Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport 400 trim levels:
Now that the 2019 INFINITI Q60 Pure carries the V6 engine, it's a much better buy. Even so, the lack of leather seats and convenience features makes it under-equipped for this class. We recommend starting your build with the Luxe. The Red Sport 400 is seriously fast and priced accordingly. It's a niche offering for buyers who want the thrill of a sports car without giving up space or comfort.
