2020 Infiniti Q60 Review

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 offers robust engines and a refined, composed ride, but its rear-seat passenger space is tight, and its cargo room is small for the luxury small car class. We don’t give the Q60 an overall ranking or score because it has not been fully crash tested.

Pros & Cons

  • Strong engines
  • Gentle ride
  • Complicated infotainment controls
  • Tiny trunk
  • Cramped rear-seat headroom

Is the Infiniti Q60 a Good Car?   

The Infiniti Q60 is an OK luxury small car. This vehicle’s strong points include comfortable seats, a potent V6 engine, and a smooth ride. However, it also has a small trunk, frustrating infotainment controls, and, like many coupes, little headroom in the back.

Should I Buy the Infiniti Q60?

This coupe isn’t without its charms. There are plenty of other vehicles in this class, however, that match or exceed its strengths, and they have fewer weaknesses. The Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series exhibit sharper handling and have larger cargo holds than the Q60, in coupe and convertible body styles. You might even consider other Infiniti vehicles like the Q50 sedan or SUVs like the QX30, QX50, and QX60. Each of these has more room for passengers and cargo than the Q60.

Should I Buy a New or Used Infiniti Q60?

The only real difference between the 2020 Q60 and the 2019 model is the addition of standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration for 2020. These features were not available in 2019 and older models. If you can do without them, then you might want to consider shopping for a used model from this generation, which will likely be less expensive than a new Q60. Infiniti dropped the four-cylinder engine from the Q60 lineup for 2019, and there have been no other significant changes since the sedan’s redesign for the 2017 model year.

Infiniti Q60 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Infiniti Q60 or Lexus IS?

It’s difficult to choose between the Lexus IS and the Infiniti Q60. The Lexus has a much higher predicted reliability rating and nicer cabin materials than the Infiniti, but it lacks modern tech features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both vehicles offer comfortable rides, but the Infiniti’s V6 engine is stronger than the Lexus’ base turbocharged four-cylinder and one of its V6s. One thing that could sway you toward the Lexus is its starting price. The base IS costs around $2,800 less than the Q60.

Which Is Better: Infiniti Q60 or Infiniti Q50?

The Infiniti Q50 is essentially the four-door version of the Q60 coupe. Both vehicles feature the same transmission, drivetrain, and V6 engine. The list of standard features is similar, and both sedans also share a finicky infotainment system. However, the Q50 is the better buy. It has a larger trunk than the Q60, and its roomier rear seats are easier for passengers to access.

Q60 Interior

How Many People Does the Q60 Seat?

The Q60 is a two-door coupe that seats four people. Synthetic leather upholstery comes standard, and the front seats have eight-way power adjustments. Available upgrades include genuine leather upholstery, heated front seats, sport front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a power-adjustable steering wheel.

The front seats are comfortable and supportive, and they offer plenty of legroom. The rear seats have more legroom than many rival coupes offer, but headroom is sorely lacking. Also, it can be difficult to slip into the back seats.

Q60 and Child Car Seats

There are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the Q60’s rear outboard seats.

Q60 Interior Quality

The Q60 coupe has an upscale cabin, with plenty of soft-touch and premium materials. However, some critics say that the design feels outdated compared with rival vehicles.

Q60 Cargo Space

With 8.7 cubic feet of space, this coupe’s trunk is smaller than what you’ll find in many rival sedans, including the Infiniti Q50. Some other coupes, such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, have more space.

Q60 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigations

This Infiniti comes standard with the InTouch infotainment system. It features two touch screens: a 7-inch lower display and an 8-inch upper display. Also included are Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, HD Radio, a six-speaker stereo, two USB ports, and Bluetooth.

Available equipment includes a navigation system, a 13-speaker Bose stereo, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a moonroof.

The InTouch interface can be frustrating. Both screens have touch capability, but they can be slow to register inputs. There are some physical knobs and buttons, but it can take time to learn which settings control which functions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are new for 2020, bringing the Q60 more in line with the cutting-edge tech of its rivals.

Q60 Performance

Q60 Engine: Lively

Powering the base Q60 is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. It makes 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The Red Sport 400 has a retuned version of the base V6 that makes 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission comes standard.

The base engine delivers ample power for daily commutes and longer jaunts, and the automatic transmission makes precise shifts. For something even more energetic and with brisker acceleration, look to the Red Sport model.

Q60 Gas Mileage: Not Exactly Endless

This vehicle gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The Red Sport 400 returns similar figures: 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. These ratings are subpar for a luxury small car. However, many class rivals have standard four-cylinder engines, which are designed to deliver better fuel economy. Match the Q60’s estimates to V6-equipped models, and you’ll find this Infiniti’s numbers compare favorably.

Q60 Ride and Handling: Avoid the Upgraded Steering

The Q60’s strong brakes help it feel composed around turns. This coupe also rides smoothly over most roads. The suspension, however, is a bit stiff.

You can choose from several drive modes to adjust ride comfort and handling, including Standard, Snow, Sport, Eco, Sport+, and Personal. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available. It’s worth noting that the available direct adaptive steering provides little feedback from the road.

How Much Does It Cost to Insure an Infiniti Q60?

The cost of insuring an Infiniti Q60 will depend on a variety of factors, including your deductible, the level of coverage that you want, and the type of insurance that you choose.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has crash tested the 2020 Q60. This is common among luxury vehicles.

Q60 Safety Features

A rearview camera is the sole standard safety feature in this Infiniti. Plenty of rivals offer more standard safety features.

Several driver aids are available, including forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high-beam headlights, and adaptive headlights are also available.

Where Is the 2020 Infiniti Q60 Built?

Infiniti builds the 2020 Q60 in Japan.

Which Infiniti Q60 Model Is Right for Me?

Infiniti offers the 2020 Q60 coupe in three trim levels: Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport. All models come with a twin-turbocharged V6, but the engine in the Red Sport model is retuned to generate an additional 100 horsepower.

The base model has a good helping of tech features. Shoppers after more safety add-ons should look to the Luxe trim. Those seeking more power might want to consider the Red Sport 400.

Every trim can be outfitted with all-wheel drive for an additional $2,000.

Infiniti Q60 Pure

The entry-level Q60 Pure has a starting MSRP of $41,350. Its roster of standard equipment includes a dual-touch-screen infotainment system with a 7-inch lower display and an 8-inch upper display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, HD Radio, satellite radio, two USB ports, and a six-speaker stereo.

You’ll also get proximity keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, and a rearview camera.

Remote start is available for $328. You can also opt to get two rear-seat, charge-only USB ports for $80.

Infiniti Q60 Luxe

The Q60 Luxe retails for $45,500. It gains forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, a 13-speaker premium Bose stereo, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a moonroof.

Several packages are available. The Leather-Appointed Seating package ($1,350) adds semi-aniline leather upholstery. The ProAssist package ($1,650) offers some advanced driver aids, such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a surround-view parking camera system.

The Essential package ($3,200) includes a voice-controlled navigation system, a power-adjustable and heated steering wheel, heated front seats, power lumbar support for the driver’s seat, remote start, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

The Edition 30 package ($4,200) includes the contents of the Essential package, as well as adaptive cruise control, a following distance indicator, and some distinctive styling elements such as dark alloy wheels and chrome trim.

Infiniti Q60 Red Sport

The performance-oriented Q60 Red Sport 400 has a base MSRP of $57,150. This model gains the stronger V6 engine, a retuned suspension, sport brake calipers, carbon-fiber trim, sport-bolstered seats, and larger alloy wheels. It also picks up many of the options listed above, including leather-appointed seats and the contents of the Essential and ProAssist packages.

The ProActive package ($2,850) adds adaptive cruise control, a following distance indicator, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive headlights, direct adaptive steering, and an in-cabin air purifier.

The Final Call

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 is a decent coupe with a muscular twin-turbo engine and a gentle ride. However, those pluses don’t offset its minuses. Its dual-screen infotainment setup is tough to use while driving, and its trunk is small compared with other coupes in the luxury small car class.

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

  • Apart from below-average interior space and an overly complicated infotainment system, the 2020 Q60 feels fancier and costs less than most alternatives in this segment." -- Car and Driver
  • 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 (2019)
  • "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)
