2019 Infiniti Q60 Review

The 2019 Infiniti Q60 ranks in the bottom third of the luxury small car class, largely because it can’t match the interior luxury, roominess, or spirited performance of its rivals.

Pros & Cons

  • Upscale cabin
  • Comfortable front seats
  • Outdated infotainment features
  • Small trunk
  • Below-average fuel economy
  • Numb steering

Is the Infiniti Q60 a Good Car?

The 2019 Infiniti Q60 is a not a great luxury small car. It has comfortable front seats and a refined cabin, as well as a comfortable ride and a strong V6 engine. However, it pales in comparison to its classmates, many of which offer sharper handling, better fuel economy estimates, more intuitive infotainment systems with modern connectivity features, and larger trunks.

Should I Buy the Infiniti Q60?

Most of what the Q60 offers can be found in higher-ranked rivals. The Audi A5 offers a roomier interior and more dynamic handling. If you like the Q60’s classy cabin, smooth ride, and strong engine but want a little more practicality, consider the Q60’s four-door sibling, the Infiniti Q50. It has a larger trunk and easier-to-access rear seats.

Should I Buy a New or Used Infiniti Q60?

The 2019 Q60 belongs to a generation that launched for the 2017 model year. Infiniti made no major changes to the 2018 vehicle, but the four-cylinder engine was discontinued for 2019. Most shoppers could get a similar vehicle and save some cash with an older model. A previous-generation Q60 could save you even more money, but it’s a significantly different vehicle.

Infiniti Q60 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Infiniti Q60 or Infiniti Q50?

The Infiniti Q50 is essentially the sedan version of the Q60. It has the same V6 engine, though it also retains the four-cylinder found in previous Q60 models. The two Infinitis have similar tech features as well. Between these two luxury small cars, the Q50 is the better choice. In addition to having more standard safety features such as forward collision warning, it has a larger trunk and more rear-seat room. The Q50 has a slightly better predicted reliability rating as well. The base four-cylinder Q50 costs about $5,200 less than the base Q60, while the base Q50 with a V6 engine will save you around $2,450.

Which Is Better: Infiniti Q60 or Infiniti Q70?

As a luxury midsize car that’s a sedan as opposed to a coupe, the Infiniti Q70 has more passenger and cargo room than its smaller sibling. Otherwise, both Infiniti cars have comfortable front seats, similar features lists, and capable engines. However, both also have outdated infotainment systems and subpar fuel economy estimates. Price is a major difference; the Q70 has a starting MSRP of $50,300 – around $9,600 more than the base Q60. Neither of these are great vehicles, but the Q60 is the better pick unless you need the extra space.

Q60 Interior

How Many People Does the Q60 Seat?

Like most coupes, the Q60 seats four people. The spacious front seats are comfortable, but a lack of headroom makes the rear seats better suited for kids. Leatherette upholstery and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat are standard. Semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

Q60 and Car Seats

This vehicle has two complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors in the rear seats.

Q60 Interior Quality

Soft-touch surfaces, quality materials, and modern textures all work together to give this Infiniti a premium cabin.

Q60 Cargo Space

At 8.7 cubic feet, the Q60’s trunk is among the smallest in its class. The Infiniti Q50 and even the Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe have more trunk space.

Q60 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

This Infiniti comes standard with two infotainment screens: an 8-inch upper display and a 7-inch lower one. Satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a six-speaker sound system are standard as well. A handful of other tech features are available, such as a navigation system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a premium Bose stereo.

Using the dual-screen system can be tricky. Rival vehicles have more cutting-edge technology, with user-friendly connectivity options like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For more information, read our What Is Apple CarPlay? and What Is Android Auto? articles.

Q60 Performance

Q60 Engine: Punchy Turbo

The base Q60 comes equipped with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Red Sport 400 models have the same engine but get a boost in output to 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission comes standard.

The standard twin-turbo V6 is capable. It’s not heart-racing powerful, but it handles most driving situations with ease. The Red Sport’s engine feels even more energetic and delivers brisker acceleration. The transmission makes precise shifts.

Q60 Gas Mileage: Less Than You’d Hope

This luxury coupe gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The Red Sport 400 returns similar estimates of 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Those ratings are subpar for the class, as many rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Lexus RC cost less at the pump. However, that’s because most of the Q60’s rivals have standard four-cylinder engines. Rivals with six-cylinder engines tend to get comparable estimates.

Q60 Ride and Handling: Avoid the Upgraded Adaptive Steering

While it’s a bit firm, this Infiniti’s ride is smooth over most road surfaces. The Q60 remains composed around corners, but the available adaptive steering provides little feedback from the road. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.

Which Infiniti Q60 Model Is Right for Me?

Infiniti offers the Q60 in three trim levels: Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport 400. Each trim shares the same twin-turbocharged V6 engine, though it makes 100 more horsepower in the performance-oriented Red Sport model. The four-cylinder engine offered in earlier models has been discontinued for the 2019 model year.

Shoppers looking for more safety features and comfort options should consider the Luxe trim, which is also the first trim available with several packages. In any trim, a Wi-Fi hot spot is available for $495, and all-wheel drive is available for $2,000.

Infiniti Q60 Pure

The Infiniti Q60 Pure has an MSRP of $40,750, and it comes standard with a 300-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine. Inside, you’ll get a dual-screen infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen and a 7-inch one, a six-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera. Push-button start, proximity keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather seats, and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat are also standard.

Infiniti Q60 Luxe

The Infiniti Q60 Luxe has a starting MSRP of $44,900. It builds off the Pure’s equipment list with a 13-speaker Bose stereo, a moonroof, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.

Infiniti offers a few packages with the Luxe. The Essential package costs $3,200 and adds a navigation system, heated front seats, a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel, and remote start. The Leather-Appointed Seating package adds semi-aniline leather seats for $1,350. The ProAssist package is available for $2,250. It adds several safety features, including front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a surround-view parking camera, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400

The Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 puts out an additional 100 horsepower with its twin-turbo engine, for a total of 400 horsepower, hence the name. In addition to the Leather-Appointed seating and the Essential packages, it features sporty enhancements such as a retuned suspension, sport brake calipers, and larger alloy wheels.

The ProAssist package remains available, and a new ProActive package with lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive headlights, automatic high beams, a following distance indicator, adaptive cruise control, and an air purifier can be yours for $2,850.

The Final Call

The 2019 Infiniti Q60 is a stylish coupe with a potent V6 engine and a quality interior. However, its cramped rear seats, small trunk, and confusing infotainment system limit its appeal. While its ride is mostly comfortable, the Q60’s fuel economy estimates pale compared to classmates, many of which are also more fun to drive and offer more cutting-edge connectivity features.

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "If you're looking for a stylish and sporty coupe that's reasonably priced, the 2019 Infiniti Q60 is worth a look. But those seeking engaging handling or best-in-class technology would do better to consider rivals such as the Audi A5 or S5 or the Mercedes C-Class coupe." -- Edmunds
  • "What looks so good on paper instead is rather conflicted, stuck somewhere in no-man's land between the traditional expectations of a performance sport coupe and those of comfier, more luxurious cruisers that isolate and pamper their occupants. It's a serious effort with serious engineering and a clear desire to be innovative, but at least in the range-topping Red Sport model we tested, it fails to come together in a way that truly excites or indulges." -- Autoblog (2017)
  • "Despite its performance-oriented specifications, gorgeous body, and promise of a relaxed driving experience, it's still tough to get excited about the new 2017 Infiniti Q60." -- New York Daily News (2017)
