In the 21st century, in a world, where up-to-date technology seems to be the major selling point of any brand, a model that hasn’t been through any significant changes in these last few years might as well be a self-proclaimed outsider. However, if the car is the Infiniti Q60 Coupe 2015, one could say there’s still hope and life in the old-timer. True, it’s not really strong when it comes to all the latest technological features and safety equipment, like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and such, but in terms of powertrain this old dog still packs some serious heat in the name of a mighty-strong 3.7-lit V6 that is still a force to be reckoned with. The super-stylish and sexy exterior looks as fresh and attractive as ever, and the top-notch cabin/interior never fails to impress, as you’ve got top-quality leather upholstery, a premium-level wood trim, a clever layout, cozy seats, and, of course, a pretty intuitive and user-friendly dashboard.
Infiniti Q60 Coupe 2015 – Exceptional Powertrain And Handling
So, as far as going wild and free goes, the latest Infiniti Q60 Coupe 2015 is still right there among the best luxurious sport cars on the market. The V6 engine is good for 330 Horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. RWD (rear-wheel drive) is standard, also you’ve got the AWD edition coming with all-wheel drive. Transmission is a 7-speed automatic, while the Limited trim (and the Q60S 6MT) can be equipped with a 6-speed manual as well. As for acceleration, the brand-new Q60 goes from zero to 60 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds, which is a pretty great result. It’s quicker than the rivaling RC 350 from Lexus, but lags a bit behind the world-esteemed BMW 2 Series and 4 Series. In terms of fuel-efficiency we’ve got ourselves decent mileage: the powertrain returns 27 miles per gallon on the highway and 19MPG in the city (22MPG combined) with RWD and 20MPG combined with AWD.
A Noisy Engine And A Tiny Backseat/Trunk
Overall, the car feels great on the road, with a refined ride quality and superb handling that’s on par with the best on the market. You’ll have a great time behind the wheel of the Infiniti Q60 Coupe 2015 and enjoy your ride to the fullest. The only downside to this powertrain Paradise is the engine’s sound as high RPMs. So, if you don’t really like it humming (actually, it does more than that) while you’re trying to experience your next trip down the road, that V6 could be a problem for you. Furthermore, if the Q60 is not just your next sport car-toy to drive around at the weekend, then you might as well consider its flexibility, versatility and practicality, because this Infiniti baby doesn’t have much of any of that. You’ve got a tinny-tiny back seat that only a kid could fit in and not-generous-at-all cargo space that won’t really be of much use to you.
Checking Out The Competition – BMW, Lexus, Caddy, Audi
Alright, if you’re not really feeling the Infiniti Q60 Coupe 2015, you should definitely check out the competition. The obvious leader of the bunch is, of course, the BMW 4 Series that offers better acceleration, a roomier interior and higher cargo capacity. The latest ATS Coupe from Caddy and the RC 350 from Lexus are pretty much equal in terms of performance, design and interior space. The brand-new Audi A5 might also be worth your attention. Still, the Q60 is one of the best in the segment, so, it’s gonna be hard for you to make up your mind! With the Infiniti coupe there’s a choice between 4 trim levels, and with a starting price-tag of 41K you’ll get yourself a good bang for your buck.
