The INFINITI Q60 arrived in 2017 and received a few tactful updates to its infotainment system and the Red Sport trim’s interior in 2020. With its looks still popular among INFINITI buyers, we expect the 2021 Q60 to arrive as a carryover model.
The current INFINITI Q60 is just what a luxury sports coupe should be: stunning and sharp without being too heavy-handed. It boasts a long hood with just the right amount of creasing and a short rear end highlighted by a set of wide taillights and a slick dual exhaust. This is all tied together by a swoopy roofline and a dramatic kink in the rear-quarter glass. We expect this design to carry on unchanged into the 2021 INFINITI Q60.
Inside, the current Q60 has the standard INFINITI Q-Series layout with a chunky center console that gives each front-seat a cockpit-like feeling. This design continues with a sporty three-spoke wheel, a swooping dashboard, and a dual-screen infotainment setup that’s received so-so marks, even after its reworking. We expect this cabin design to remain the same when the 2021 Q60 rolls into showrooms.
Powering the current Q60 is a pair of 3.0-liter V6 engines. The base V6 pumps out a healthy 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Move into the Red Sport trim, and the V6 engine leaps to 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Both V6 engines pair with seven-speed automatic transmissions and rear-wheel drive. We expect everything to remain the same under the 2021 INFINITI Q60’s hood.
The current Q60 hasn’t been through the IIHS’ smash-up testing, nor do we expect it to. It’s four-port sibling, the Q50 has only been through a handful of tests, but it did receive “Good” ratings for crash safety. The Q60 lacks standard automatic emergency braking, though it is standard in higher trims. Other available safety gear includes adaptive cruise control, active lane control, blind-spot monitors, a surround-view camera system, rear collision warning, adaptive headlights, and lane departure warning.
