New Infiniti Q60 Sports Coupe debuts in Detroit

Making its world premiere at the 2016 North American International Auto Show, the new Infiniti Q60 is a premium sports coupe that combines expressive design with exhilarating performance and dynamics.

Daring proportions and taut, muscular lines provide the Q60’s impulsive exterior – lower and wider than predecessors. Dynamic enhancements, including an all-new lightweight and sophisticated 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine, together with new adaptive steering and digital suspension system, result in a premium sports coupe designed and engineered to perform.

The high performance 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine from the new and exclusive ‘VR’ powertrain family is born out of the brand’s extensive in-house experience of six-cylinder powertrains. The new ‘VR30’ enginehas been developed to empower the driver and offer an output of 400hp with one of the best power-to-efficiency ratios in the premium sports coupe class. This powertrain of Q60 comes with a rear-biased intelligent All Wheel Drive (AWD) system that provides enhanced stability and road holding in low grip conditions.

A four-cylinder 2.0-litre gasoline engine, turbo-charged to produce 208hp, is also available on the Q60. As standard for this version, power is channelled through the Q60’s rear wheels for optimal dynamic response and to benefit steering feel.

The Q60 has been engineered to deliver a truly engaging sports coupe experience, with a unique balance of ride comfort and agile handling. Complementing this position is Infiniti’s new Dynamic Digital Suspension, which has been designed to offer best-in-class handling responses and agility, and enhanced ride comfort – thanks, in part, to a dedicated new set of dampers.

In addition, Infiniti’s second-generation Direct Adaptive Steering offers high levels of steering feel and feedback in the Q60, and the Drive Mode Selector gives drivers the option to personalise and tailor the steering’s precise levels of response and feel to suit their own preferences.
