Infiniti Q60 Review
The 2015 Infiniti Q60 ranks 14 out of 16 Luxury Sports Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Infiniti Q60, as well as reliability and safety data.
The 2015 Infiniti Q60 offers potent acceleration and agile handling, according to reviewers, but they think it has a dated interior design and an unrefined powertrain.
According to auto writers, the 2015 Infiniti Q60's V6 engine provides potent acceleration, but it is noisy and prone to vibration at higher RPMs. Most say the standard seven-speed automatic transmission performs smoothly, but a few note that it shifts slowly during hard acceleration. A six-speed manual transmission is optional. The 2015 Q60 coupe gets up to an EPA-estimated 19/27 mpg city/highway, which is lower than the fuel economy of most rival luxury coupes. The Infiniti Q60 comes standard with rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive is optional in the coupe. Test drivers report that the coupe and convertible have agile handling and strong brakes. They add that the Q60's steering is accurate, though some say its takes too much effort to turn. Some auto writers report that models with the sport suspension have a harsh ride, so they think most shoppers will prefer the standard suspension.
Though critics think the 2015 Infiniti Q60 has an attractive interior with premium materials, they also note that it hasn't been updated for many years and is starting to look dated. As is common in sports coupes, test drivers note that the Q60's front seats are comfortable and its rear seats are very small. Rearward visibility is also poor, according to some reviewers, and the Q60 coupe has a small trunk for the class. The convertible has decent trunk space with its top up, but almost no trunk space when it is down. Standard features include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a USB port, satellite radio, Bluetooth and a rearview camera. Available features include a touch-screen navigation system, a Bose audio system, rear parking sensors and adaptive cruise control. The Q60 convertible comes standard with a three-piece power-retractable hardtop, while a moonroof is optional in the coupe. Critics point out that the Q60's infotainment controls are easier to use than the controls in some rivals.
- "The 2015 Infiniti Q60 offers satisfying performance and enduring curb appeal, but it lacks refinement and practicality relative to its competitors." -- Edmunds
- "While the Infiniti Q60 coupe and convertible have aged gracefully, they're definitely feeling dated these days, especially the convertibles with their slow-acting and noisy-when-closed tops." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Formerly badged as the G37 Convertible, Infiniti's sporty drop-top Q60 Convertible remains a brawny, sharp-looking offering that's slightly lacking in refinement yet strong in the value department." -- Left Lane News
Other Cars to Consider
Reviewers write that the all-new 2015 Lexus RC offers a good balance of luxury and performance thanks to its athletic handling and comfortable, quiet ride. They also think that the RC has a stylish, modern interior made with first-class materials.
The 2015 BMW 435i has razor-sharp handling and a powerful, refined engine, according to test drivers. The 435i also gets much better fuel economy than the Q60, and critics say it has an attractive interior with high-end materials and user-friendly controls.

A 3.7-liter V6 engine, seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard. A six-speed manual is optional, and all-wheel drive is available in the coupe. The Infiniti Q60 hasn't had major changes since the 2014 model year, so this overview uses applicable research and reviews from the 2014 and 2015 model years. With the exception of a new model name, the Infiniti Q60 is basically identical to the 2013 Infiniti G37 coupe that it replaced in the 2014 model year.
