What is it: The Infiniti Q60 is a new four-seater coupé model.
Key features: Distinctive looks, V6 engine availability, all-wheel-drive.
Our view: The Infiniti Q60 adds a good-looking new model to the choice of four-seater coupés on the market, but lacks a personality to go with the visual appeal.
Review type: Full road test
Infiniti is still battling to establish a true identity in the UK alongside the more familiar premium brands, and part of that effort involves filling the more niche areas of the range. So we now have this new four-seater coupé, the Q60 – reviving a model originally called the G37 and last sold in Europe in 2014.
The Q60 is the first new model to appear after the volume-chasing Infiniti Q30 and QX30 ranges, and the coupé has its work cut out – in recent times a whole host of upmarket contenders have been unveiled in this niche. They include new versions of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW 4 Series, Audi’s A5 range and for those with big pockets, the 5.0-litre V8 powered Lexus RC F.
Tough competition, which Infiniti is tackling with a distinctive-looking shape, lots of technology and a perhaps surprising all-petrol powertrain line-up.
