2021 Infiniti Q60 Review

The Infiniti Q60 offers powerful engines and a refined ride, but it also has cramped back seats and an outdated, hard-to-use infotainment system. This luxury small car does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn’t been fully crash tested.

Pros & Cons

  • Powerful engines
  • Good balance of ride comfort and handling
  • Tiny trunk
  • Finnicky infotainment controls
  • Confining rear seats

Thinking of leasing a Infiniti Q60?

The U.S. News Best Price Program saves users an average of $3,206 off the MSRP, and a lower price equals lower monthly lease payments. That means you could see a savings of $90 a month on a 36-month lease.

Is the Infiniti Q60 a Good Car?

The Infiniti Q60 is a decent luxury small car. This two-door coupe has two strong V6 engine options, a gentle ride, and competent handling. The front seats are comfortable too. However, reaching the rear seats can be difficult, and headroom back there is limited. Also, the dual-screen infotainment system is distracting and tricky to use, and trunk space is small, even by coupe standards.

Should I Buy the Infiniti Q60?

There’s not much reason to buy the Infiniti Q60 coupe when you can find rivals that offer more bang for your buck. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a high-end interior and comes in a range of body styles. If you like the Q60 but want a bit more room for passengers and cargo, consider the Infiniti Q50 sedan.

2020 vs. 2021 Infiniti Q60: What's the Difference?

For 2021, safety features such as adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring are now standard in the midlevel Q60 Luxe trim, and forward collision warning is now standard in the base trim. These were previously extra-cost options.

Compare the 2020 and 2021 Q60 »

Here are the key changes for the Q60 since Infiniti redesigned it for the 2017 model year:

  • 2018: trim levels renamed
  • 2019: four-cylinder engine discontinued
  • 2020: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto introduced and added to standard features list
  • 2021: more standard driver assistance features now standard

How Much Does the Infiniti Q60 Cost?

The entry-level Infiniti Q60 Pure has a starting MSRP of $41,650. That’s pricey for a small luxury car. The performance-oriented Red Sport 400 starts at $58,100.

Infiniti Q60 Versus the Competition

Infiniti Q60 vs. Infiniti Q50

The Infiniti Q50 is essentially a four-door sedan variant of the two-door Infiniti Q60 coupe, with the same general styling, interior features, and powertrain choices. Neither vehicle is a great choice, but between them, the sedan is the smarter buy. Its rear seats are both more spacious and easier to get into, and the Q50 also has a larger trunk. On top of that, buying the Q50 will cost around $5,000 less than the Q60 in its base trim.

Compare the Q60 and Q50 »

Infiniti Q60 vs. Lexus RC

The Lexus RC is another pricey coupe in the luxury small car class, and it has a similar starting price to the Q60. The base RC has more standard safety features than the Q60, as well as a larger trunk. The high-performance RC F has a V8 engine that eclipses the Infiniti’s twin-turbo V6, but getting it also requires dropping around $66,000. Between these two coupes from Japan, the Lexus is the better choice.

Q60 Interior: Old and Cramped

Q60 Cargo Space

With 8.7 cubic feet, the Q60’s trunk is one of the smallest in the class. Sedans like the Infiniti Q50 and even other coupes such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class offer more space.

How Many People Does the Q60 Seat?

Up to four people can sit in this coupe. Like many two-doors, the front seats are the best places to sit. They’re spacious, comfortable, and supportive. Legroom is OK in the back, but the lack of headroom makes it hard to get comfortable. As with many two-door vehicles, accessing the rear seats can be tricky.

Synthetic leather upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable front seats come standard. You can find models with heated front seats, front sport seats with additional side support, and a steering wheel with heating and power adjustment.

Q60 and Child Car Seats

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

Q60 Interior Quality

The Infiniti Q60 coupe has a cabin full of classy materials, including metal and soft-touch leather and faux leather surfaces.

Q60 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

Both of the InTouch infotainment system's screens have touch capability, but they lag before responding to your input. You can also control the upper screen with a rotary dial. Figuring out which display controls which functions can take time. You can find more cutting-edge and easier-to-use tech features in rivals.

  • Standard infotainment features: an 8-inch upper touch screen, a 7-inch lower touch screen, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, HD Radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, two USB ports, and Bluetooth
  • Available infotainment features: a navigation system and a 13-speaker Bose stereo
  • Additional standard features: proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Other available features: a moonroof and remote start

Q60 Performance: Powerful V6 Choices

Q60 Engine

Standard in this Infiniti is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This engine is capable in most situations, and there’s plenty of power for city or highway driving. For brisker acceleration and more muscle, look to the Red Sport 400. It offers the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, but it boosts output to a robust 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

A smooth-shifting seven-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Q60 Gas Mileage

With rear-wheel drive, the base Q60 gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The Red Sport 400 gets similar ratings of 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Most vehicles in the luxury small car class get better fuel economy, but keep in mind that many of them have four-cylinder engines. When comparing V6s, the Infiniti’s figures are typical.

Q60 Ride and Handling

For the most part, the Q60 rides smoothly. It can be a bit stiff, but not to the point of discomfort. The brakes are strong, and shifting into Sport or Sport+ drive mode limits body lean and sharpens handling, helping this vehicle take turns confidently. However, the available direct adaptive steering offers an unnatural, numb feel, detracting from the driving experience. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.

Q60 Dimensions and Weight

Where Is the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Built?

Infiniti builds the 2021 Q60 in Japan.

Which Infiniti Q60 Model Is Right for Me?

Infiniti makes the 2021 Infiniti Q60 coupe in three trim levels: Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport 400. It’s worth upgrading to the Luxe trim for its added driver assistance features. If you want the 400-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine, then you’ll have to get the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport. The lower trims have a 300-horsepower 3.0-liter V6.

All-wheel drive can be added to any trim for $2,000.

Infiniti Q60 Pure

The Q60 Pure has a starting MSRP of $41,650. Infiniti’s standard InTouch infotainment system comes with dual touch screens (an 8-inch upper and a 7-inch lower), Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a six-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, two USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and Bluetooth. Other standard equipment includes forward collision warning, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, synthetic leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and alloy wheels.

Remote start is a $328 option.

Infiniti Q60 Luxe

Retailing for $50,200, the Luxe adds a 13-speaker Bose stereo, remote start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-appointed upholstery, heated front sport seats, a heated steering wheel, automatic high-beam headlights, a surround-view parking camera system, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and a moonroof.

The Essential package costs $2,050 and adds voice-controlled navigation, an advanced climate control system, remote start, and a power-adjustable steering wheel.

Infiniti Q60 Red Sport

Prices for the performance-oriented Red Sport 400 start at $58,100. Q60 Red Sport models gain the stronger twin-turbo V6 engine, a sport-tuned suspension, carbon fiber trim, red-painted brake calipers, paddle shifters, semi-aniline leather seats, larger alloy wheels, and the contents of the Essential package.

For $1,700, you can outfit this coupe with the Proactive package. It has adaptive headlights, lane keep assist, and direct adaptive steering.

The Final Call

The Infiniti Q60 has two robust engines and a well-mannered ride. Still, there are several shortcomings that hold back this coupe. The rear seats are cramped and hard to reach, the infotainment controls take time to master, and trunk space is in short supply. This vehicle is also pricier than many other luxury small cars.

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

  • "The 2021 Infiniti Q60 does most of the right things a premium compact coupe should." -- Autotrader
  • "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)
