Infiniti is introducing an updated coupe at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The 2017 Q60 is the two-door version of the Q50 sedan and was previewed by the Q60 Concept we saw a year ago.
(car engine) With the redesigned Q60 coupe Infiniti takes what was basically the old G37 coupe and turns it into a new two-door version of the Q50 sedan. A lot of elements up front here where we'll start that resemble the Q50.
Things like a very vertical grill here, that's very low along the hood. Things like these sort of flowing headlamps that kind of branch out here. As you come along the side, we see some elements from the old G37 coupe, especially in the tail, which sort of descends as it comes here toward the tail lights themselves. Probably the biggest differentiator between the Q60 coupe and the Q50 sedan that sort of shares its platform, a much more flowing, interesting tail lights here. They're actually not too bad on the Q50. It's sort of a different take here, see what ya think. Traditional drawbacks in luxury coupes are a tight back seat and a small rear window. Those are definitely true here, but a practical thing that I wish Infiniti had fixed was kind of getting to that seatbelt, especially with the longer door here. Some of the Q60s German competitors have motorized kind of arms that give you that belt. This just has sort of a plastic clip, kind of leaves it back there. Overall materials, pretty good here, dual screen kind of center stack here, we've had mixed impressions on that in the Q50. Engines, turbo-charged four or six cylinder engines, horsepower from 208 all the way up to 400. Unfortunately for stick shift Pierce, all the transmissions are only automatic. Stay tuned for our driving impressions closer to the new Q60s on sale date, mid summer.
