The Q60 is what’s left of the former G37 line that included a sedan, coupe and retractable-hardtop convertible. The sedan has been redesigned for 2014 and is now called the Q50 (covered separately in the Cars.com Research Section). The G37 coupe and convertible have been renamed Q60 and carry over on the previous design.
The coupe is available with rear- or all-wheel drive, and the convertible comes only with rear-wheel drive. Both seat four. Competitors include the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, as well as the Lexus IS, Cadillac ATS and Audi A5.
Both body styles are also available with rear-wheel drive in Q60 IPL (Infiniti Performance Line) guise with more horsepower, a firmer suspension and specific trim.
