2018 Infiniti Q60 Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.3

The 2018 Infiniti Q60's cabin has a contemporary style fitted with upscale materials. There are lots of different textures and surfaces, but on the plus side, everything is soft to the touch and looks high-quality. The front seats are comfortable and roomy, but the back seats are cramped. The dual-screen infotainment system can be frustrating to use due to its occasionally delayed responses and outdated graphics.

  • You'll find an unusually high number of materials in the cabin but plenty of soft touch points." -- Edmunds
  • "The materials throughout are of high quality, with nice leathers and heaps of soft-touch surfaces, and it stays quiet inside thanks to an active noise cancellation system." -- CNET (2017)
  • "A literal highlight, though, is the trim. Unlike so many cars in its class that clad the dash with dark carbon-fiber pieces or piano-black wood, Infiniti has chosen to weave shimmering optic-fiber into every hard surface of the Q60. It's an aesthetic masterstroke that gives the cabin a clean and elegant finish." -- Automobile Magazine (2017)

Seating

The Q60's standard comfort features include leatherette upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable front seats. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel are available.

The front seats offer generous side and back support to keep you comfortable and hold you in place around turns. You may find the seating position higher than normal. Still, the front seats are easy to get into and have ample space. The back seats, on the other hand, are cramped. They have very little headroom, which is typical for a coupe.

  • Access to the front seats is easy and space is plentiful – not so much for the back seats, which are too small to really be usable." -- Edmunds
  • The front seats are comfortable with good support. The rear seats have better legroom than most coupes, but headroom is severely restricted – most adult rear passengers will be forced to sit in a crouched position." -- Consumer Guide (2017)
  • "The front seats themselves are rather comfy, with good thigh and back support. Bolsters are large enough to keep you in place during spirited driving but aren't obtrusive otherwise. The seating position in the Q60 is a little higher than we expected, but we soon got used to the slightly elevated feel." -- Left Lane News (2017)

Interior Features

Standard features in the base Q60 include dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a six-speaker audio system, HD Radio, satellite radio, two USB ports, Bluetooth, a dual-screen infotainment system, and a rearview camera.

Optional features include a moonroof, a 13-speaker Bose premium audio system, navigation, adaptive cruise control, active lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and a 360-degree camera.

The Q60's cabin looks high-tech, with not one but two infotainment screens. The lower screen is mostly used for controlling cabin features, while the upper screen shows drive information or navigation directions. Despite its state-of-the-art appearance, the system can be clunky to use. It processes some inputs quickly but can be slow to respond to others. Also, the navigation graphics aren't as sharp as those in some rivals. Further, smartphone integration via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is not available.

  • The dual-screen layout is showing its age, with the map graphics looking out-of-date and the screens apparently from different eras. The lower touchscreen gives quick responses and has a reasonably intuitive screen flow. Many gray icons on certain screens are puzzling." -- Edmunds
  • In contrast to that all-digital dash, the Q60 still relies on a set of analog gauges. Those units are easy to read, but seem out of place in a vehicle that puts such a heavy emphasis on technology. A full LED cluster might make some sense here, especially on higher-end Q60 models." -- Left Lane News (2017)
  • For audiophiles, a 13-speaker Bose sound system belts out clear and crisp tunes that you control through the Infiniti InTouch infotainment interface, that was also first seen on the Q50, consisting of dual center touchscreens. The Q60's InTouch system is upgraded with a more powerful processor, which is evident in how quickly it pages through the various navigation, audio, climate and car setting menus. On my drive, the system did hiccup a couple of times and not respond to inputs, requiring additional screen taps." -- CNET (2017)

Cargo

Like most coupes, the Q60 has a small trunk – just 8.7 cubic feet. Buying a sedan or hatchback rival will get you significantly more cargo room. The Q60 has folding rear seats to accommodate long objects, but there are only a handful of places to store your small personal items.

  • "There aren't many places in the cabin to swallow normal clutter, just cupholders, a modest console bin and shallow, plasticky door pockets." -- Edmunds
  • The trunk is similarly of a smallish but typical and perfectly useful size." -- Autoblog (2017)
