2019 Infiniti Q60 Review

The 2019 Infiniti Q60 ranks near the bottom of the luxury small car class. An energetic engine and some premium cabin materials aren’t enough to offset its disappointing gas mileage, cramped rear seats, tiny trunk, and outdated infotainment system.

Pros & Cons

  • Premium cabin materials
  • Robust V6 engine
  • Tiny trunk
  • Tight, hard-to-access rear seats
  • Frustrating and outdated infotainment controls
  • No Android Auto or Apple CarPlay

2019 Infiniti Q60 Overview

Is the 2019 Infiniti Q60 a Good Used Car?

No, the 2019 Q60 is not a good used luxury small car. This vehicle has a few redeeming qualities, such as a classy cabin and a robust V6 engine available with two output levels. However, this coupe struggles to compete with the ride comfort, agility, trunk space, and passenger room of its rivals.

For instance, if you like this Infiniti but want more practicality, you might consider its sedan counterpart, the 2019 Infiniti Q50, or even the larger 2019 Infiniti Q70. On the other hand, to get modern connectivity features such as Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, you might look toward something like the 2019 Audi A5. The Audi can be had in several body styles: coupe, convertible, and four-door liftback.

Which Used Infiniti Q60 Trim Is Right for Me?

The 2019 Infiniti Q60 coupe comes in three trim levels: Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport 400. All three have a turbocharged V6 engine. In the Pure and Luxe trims, that engine produces 300 horsepower; in the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400, it makes 400 horses. The Red Sport 400 is the trim to get if you want the most driver assistance features.

When it was new, Infiniti offered options that were unique to the Red Sport 400, so you might find one with adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic-high beam headlights, a following distance indicator, adaptive headlights, or an in-cabin air purifier.

  • Infiniti Q60 Pure: The entry-level 3.0t Pure trim comes with the InTouch infotainment system. It’s a dual-screen setup with an 8-inch upper display and a 7-inch lower display. Also standard are a six-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, two USB ports, Bluetooth, proximity keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, alloy wheels, and a rearview camera.
  • Infiniti Q60 Luxe: The Infiniti Q60 3.0t Luxe gains a moonroof, a 13-speaker Bose stereo, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. Some models may come with navigation, leather-appointed seats, heated front seats, or a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.
  • Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400: The Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 gains performance enhancements such as an adaptive suspension, upgraded brake calipers, larger alloy wheels, and paddle shifters. Much of the Luxe’s options listed above are included too. Like the Luxe, some Red Sport models may come with front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rain-sensing windshield wipers, or a heated steering wheel.

What Does Infiniti's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Infiniti offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 70,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. The Infiniti certified pre-owned warranty has three levels of coverage based on the vehicle’s age and mileage.

Vehicles with less than 15,000 miles receive a six-year/75,000-mile warranty from the original new-car purchase date. Vehicles less than four years old with more than 15,000 miles receive a six-year/unlimited-mileage warranty from the original new-car purchase date. Finally, vehicles more than four years old with more than 15,000 miles receive a two-year/unlimited-mileage warranty good from the CPO purchase date. Infiniti CPO vehicles must pass a 167-point inspection. Infiniti CPO vehicles also receive free maintenance for one year. Additional benefits like towing, roadside assistance, and trip interruption coverage may be available, so read the Infiniti warranty page carefully.

Infiniti has one of the better CPO programs in the industry, according to our analysis. Lexus and Audi are among the very few that are better.

2019 Infiniti Q60 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2019 Infiniti Q60 or 2019 Lexus RC?

The 2019 Lexus RC is a luxury small car that shares some similarities with the Q60. Both vehicles are Japanese coupes with snug seating and potent powertrains. However, the Lexus is the clear choice. It supports Apple CarPlay, has more standard safety features than the Infiniti, and has an even nicer cabin. The RC also has great safety and predicted reliability ratings.

Which Is Better: 2019 Infiniti Q60 or 2019 Infiniti Q50?

Perhaps the biggest difference between the 2019 Infiniti Q50 and Q60 relates to body type. The Q50 is a sedan, and the Q60 is a coupe. The two have a lot in common otherwise. For example, both share V6 powertrains, but only the Q50 has a turbo-four base engine. Between the two Infiniti models, the Q50 is the better bet. Not only does it have a larger trunk and more rear-seat legroom, but it also has more standard safety features, and it may cost less than the Q60.

2019 Q60 Performance

How Does the 2019 Infiniti Q60 Drive?

The twin-turbocharged V6 base engine produces plenty of power for most driving situations, including getting up to freeway speeds or climbing hills. The extra juice in Red Sport 400 models provides even more oomph. The Red Sport 400 is not as heart-racing as something like the high-performance 2019 Cadillac ATS-V coupe, but it’s still plenty powerful. When it’s in Sport+ mode, the transmission makes prompt shifts, but it can lag a little when you set it to manual mode.

The Q60’s ride is a bit firm, but not to the point of being uncomfortable. Strong brakes, limited body lean, and great road grip help this coupe feel poised around turns. However, it’s best to avoid models with the available Direct Adaptive Steering, which provides unnatural and uneven steering feedback.

For a sportier alternative to this vehicle, you might consider the 2019 Audi A5.

  • Base engine: 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 with 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque
  • Available engine: 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 with 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque
  • Drivetrain: standard rear-wheel drive; available all-wheel drive
  • Transmission: seven-speed automatic
Does the 2019 Infiniti Q60 Get Good Gas Mileage?

This Infiniti’s best fuel economy estimates are below average for the class. However, that’s because many rivals have four-cylinder engines. Compared to other V6-powered classmates, the Q60’s ratings are typical.

  • 300-horsepower, RWD: 19/28 mpg city/highway
  • 300-horsepower, AWD: 19/27 mpg
  • 400-horsepower, RWD: 20/27 mpg
  • 400-horsepower, AWD: 19/26 mpg

2019 Q60 Interior

How Many People Does the 2019 Q60 Seat?

The 2019 Q60 seats four people in two rows. The front seats have a good amount of head- and legroom, as well as ample bolstering. Legroom in the back is slightly more generous than what competing coupes offer, but headroom is severely limited, and the space is generally best reserved for kids. Like many coupes, accessing the rear seats is difficult.

The cabin is full of premium materials and soft-touch surfaces, and the active noise cancellation system helps keep it quiet.

Standard seating features:

  • Synthetic leather upholstery
  • Eight-way power-adjustable front seats
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel

Available seating features:

  • Driver’s sport seat with additional bolstering
  • Heated front seats
  • Genuine semi-aniline leather upholstery
  • Heated steering wheel
How Many Child Car Seats Fit in the 2019 Infiniti Q60?

The 2019 Q60 has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the rear outboard seats.

2019 Infiniti Q60 Features

The InTouch infotainment system works relatively quickly, but it feels outdated compared to the setups in rivals. It lacks connectivity features like Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and the dual-screen setup can be hard to use.

  • Standard infotainment features: the Infiniti InTouch infotainment system with an 8-inch upper display and a 7-inch lower display, two USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD Radio, and a six-speaker stereo
  • Available infotainment features: a navigation system, a 13-speaker Bose stereo, and a Wi-Fi hot spot
  • Additional standard features: push-button start and proximity keyless entry
  • Other available features: a moonroof and an air purifier
