The all-new 2020 Infiniti Q60 will introduce a couple of changes and upgrades. For the start, a luxury two-door coupe will get slight exterior and interior upgrades. Under the hood, things will remain. However, the most significant change will be the platform. According to numerous reports, this coupe will switch to a different platform.
The reason for such a radical move is Infiniti’s electrification plan. Also, all of the company’s electric models will offer an all-wheel-drive setup as standard. That means you can forget about the rear-wheel-drive system. Besides that, the 2020 Q60 will be available in four trim levels. Performance is truly great and handling is superb.
2020 Infiniti Q60 Looks Amazing and Sporty
The exterior of the 2020 Infiniti Q60 looks truly modern and attractive. It is a two-door coupe that offers nothing but luxury. New Q60 looks longer than it actually is, thanks to the longer wheelbase. 19-inch wheels are standard but you can buy optional 20-inch rollers.
This coupe is one of a few models that are looking the same as the concept. Stylish appearance grabs the attention, instantly. Plenty of luxury features are visible. Front grille looks amazing, especially with the 3D badge. In the back, exhaust tips are similar to the futuristic cars and it looks sporty. Plenty of standard equipment is available. For instance, LED headlights and taillights are standard. Also, Q60 offers a standard rearview camera.
From the inside, not that much will change. The 2020 Infiniti Q60 looks the same as the current model. However, this model looks very modern and premium. Comfort is great, along with the interior layout and design.
The only thing we don’t like is a smaller touchscreen unit. This coupe’s rivals are all offering larger displays. However, the touchscreen is very easy to use and it comes with simple menus. Driver’s seat comes with lumbar support and 8-way power adjustable system that is standard. Interior room is generous, especially up front. The red sport 400 model will get a more premium and sporty cabin with comfortable leather seats that are painted in red.
Engine Specs and Fuel Economy
The upcoming 2020 Infiniti Q60 offers three engine choices. Each trim levels comes with a different drivetrain. Pure and Luxe trims are offering a 2.0-lite four-cylinder turbocharged unit. This engine is capable of producing up to 208 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is good, 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
This engine is available with a 7-speed automatic gearbox. Sport model offers a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that generates 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The same engine is powering the Red Sport 400S model. However, this sporty variant cranks out 400 HP and 350 lb-ft of twists.
Infiniti Q60 is Going All-Wheel-Drive
Infiniti is starting a new era with its electrification plan. Models such as Q50, Q60, and Q70 will get an all-electric variant. For that reason, Infiniti will introduce a new platform. The new platform will make room for electric motor and batteries. Also, a rear-wheel-drive setup won’t be available anymore. All electric models will offer a standard all-wheel-drive configuration.
Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2020 Infiniti Q60 will start at around $40,000 or slightly above. A Red Sport 400 model will be priced at around $60,000. This price still makes Q60 more affordable than its rivals. Luxury two-door coupe will hit the dealerships in the last quarter of 2019.
