The second-generation INFINITI Q60 saw its first model hit the market in the year 2017. The Infiniti Q60 coupe is an extremely handsome car with its swooping roofline and strong body accent lines, along with a big bonnet, that exudes ultra-modern styling and craftsmanship without compromising on performance. 

2021 Infiniti Q60
The Infiniti Q60 looks astonishing and has a really impressive road presence.

Though the patrons had high hopes for the new model year, with the expected arrival of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Project Black S to 2021 Infiniti Q60 Convertible, none of these is going to happen as the Q60 soldiers into the model year 2021 without any significant changes. However, it's not a total disappointment either, as the 2021 Infiniti Q60 gets added safety and convenience features and new exterior colors. The 2021 Infiniti Q60's price begins from $41,650 for the base trim and ranges up to $$58,100 for the top of the line Red Sport 400 trim, which we review separately. Speaking of the release date of the 2021 Infiniti Q60, the coupe is already on sale, and will soon be reaching dealerships across the country.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


Infiniti is the luxe division of Nissan, that instills the brand's reliability and easy to maintain trait, but with a fondness for sportiness. The Infiniti Q60 coupe is based on the Nissan 370Z and is the only Coupe offering from the house of Infiniti. For 2021, it gets very subtle new changes with aesthetics alone in mind, while packing the same punchy Twin-Turbo V6, capable of doing 0-6 mph in an impressive 5.4 seconds! However, while the performance and looks are to die for, the interiors of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 weaken its case due to high impracticality. 

The Infiniti Q60 remains unchanged for the model year 2021.

Though there are no major changes taking place on the Infiniti Q60 for the model year 2021, the coupe has been granted an updated standard features list to prevent it from going bland in front of its new-age rivals. The 2021 Infiniti Q60 Coupe gets driver-assist highlights such as adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assist as standard. Apart from that, the 2021Infiniti Q60 Luxe also gets heated seats and a heated steering wheel as standard. Moreover, there are also 2 new color options for the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Coupe - Slate Gray and Grand Blue. 

Despite focusing on being a more family-oriented car, the 2021 Q60 faces stiff competition from rivals like the 2021 BMW 4 Series, 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, and the 2021 Audi A5 coupe. Will this JDM car be able to uphold its ancestor's reputation? Let’s find out.

2021 Infiniti Q60 Features

7.6/10

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 will retain the same number of trims and that includes the: Pure, Luxe, and the hyperactive Red Sport 400. The prices for the 2021 Infiniti Q60 begin at $41,650 for the base Pure trim and ranges up to $50,200 for the Luxe trim. The prices for the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe start at $58,100, but we review this trim separately. 

The 2021 Infiniti Q60, in its basic tune, is offered in 2 trims.

All trims will feature a 3L twin-turbo V6 that comes mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. By default, the 2021 Infiniti Q60 is driven by its rear wheels, until you opt-in for the optional AWD drivetrain, which costs $2000 extra over the selected trim's MSRP.

The 3.0t Pure trim features a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. It features 19” wheels, LED headlights and foglights, heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, and simulated leather upholstery. There’ also a dual-inch touchscreen infotainment interface, available in both 8-inch and 7-inch sizes. Among infotainment features, there’s Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, two USB ports, and a six-speaker sound system.

The Luxe trim adds a sunroof, a 13-Speaker Bose Surround sound system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, and an automatic emergency braking system. With access to more options than the base Pure trim, the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Luxe is a better-rounded package

Apart from these standard features, there are also two packages on offer for the 2021 Infiniti Q60, namely - Essential Package, Leather Seating Package, and Pro/Assist Package. The Essential package adds auto-dimming outside mirrors, a power-adjustable and heated steering wheel, heated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, remote engine starting, Infiniti InTouch emergency communications services, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a navigation system.

The leather seating package of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 adds leather upholstery; and the available Pro/Assist Package adds highlights such as front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking system, alongside blind-spot monitoring, reverse automatic braking, and automatic wipers.

2021 Infiniti Q60 Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Infiniti cars have always had a mixed result when it comes to their reliability. It might not be as reliable as a Lexus, but it definitely offers a better deal when compared to German rivals. Especially when the J.D. Power report is taken under consideration. J.D Power rating s are based on the score that has been given by actual consumers based on the experience that they have over a longer period of time. Inputs are absolutely unbiased which helps give a clear picture of the car.

Reliability and Ownership Costs

As far as reliability ratings are concerned, the Infiniti Q60 scores a decent 82 points out of a maximum of 100 from J.D. Power, which shows that it is not an Unreliable car at all and that Infiniti has put enough thought into this production car.

Below is a detailed breakdown of the Infiniti Q60's J.D. Power score:

Recalls are an issue that seriously hampers the reliability image of a car in the long run. The Infiniti Q60 as of yet has faced just one recall over a faulty safe belt issue at the rear seats. The senors on those issues that triggered the dual-mode locking mechanism did not work and lock as intended. Only 275 units were affected and Nissan has swiftly taken care of the issue in this case.

The true ownership cost is calculated after ownership of 5 years and doing an average of 15,000 miles per year. As the Infiniti Q60 was launched in 2017, the tests are still in progress to give you an accurate estimate of the true ownership costs.

However, being a part of the Nissan group, the reliability factor of the Infiniti Q60 should remain unquestionable. The Japanese are known for their reliability and easy to maintain cars. Keeping a regular check of the engine essentials increases the life of the engine considerably and reduces the repair costs as well.

Though there is no official data about the true cost to own an Infiniti Q60, yet we expect it to cost around $50,000 over a span of 5 years. This amount includes all the factors such as depreciation, repairs, fuel expenses, taxes and fees, etc.

Warranty

To cover up for the loss in value, Infiniti’s warranty program is in tune with Nissan’s and that really helps the owner maintain the Q60. However, there’s no complimentary maintenance offer. The 2021 Infiniti Q60's warranty package is explained below:

Criteria Period
Limited Warranty Cover 4 years or 60,000 miles, whichever is earlier
Powertrain Warranty 6 years or 70,000 miles, whichever is earlier
Complimentary Maintenance Package N/A

Miles Per Dollar Cost

With just $0.81 cost to maintain per mile, the Infiniti Q60 comes off across a reasonable car. But then when it comes down to fuel costs, with the Infiniti returning the least mileage, it ends up being a bit expensive to maintain. Though, not unreasonable for a car that is being marketed as a luxury car and has a starting cost price of more than $40,000.

2021 Infiniti Q60 Buying Advice

Since the Q60 is primarily a luxurious car, the mid-Luxe trim will be offering more value for the money spent. If splurging is not an issue, then we would recommend that Red Line 400 trim with its sport tunings makes things interesting too, provided the RS, AMG, and M-powered model costs more than the Infiniti. There’s also a new EDITION 30 package that gives you a myriad of additional features to makes the Luxe trim almost on par with the more expensive Red Line 400 trim.

Is Buying a used Infiniti Q60 a good idea?

It is always a sensible decision to buy a used car, as it saves you a lot of money while giving you a larger selection of options within your price range. Moreover, when you buy a used car, you do not take a hit on the depreciation factor.

Infiniti has equipped the Q60 with many standard features. To make a point, the 2017 Q60 makes a pretty strong case for itself to feature in your garage. With an attractive sporty coupe styling that offers a lot of cargo space, the Q60 is as practical as it gets. Despite having fierce competition from German brands like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi, the Infiniti stands out on its own. All in all, getting a used Infiniti Q60 will not be a bad buy at all.

2021 Infiniti Q60 Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The Q60 will carry forward the same turbocharged V6 power with two states of tunes for its Luxe, Pure, and Red Sport 400 trims. The 2021 Infiniti Q60 houses a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Both Pure and Luxe trims feature this setup.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 gets a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 engine.

While the Red Sport 400, with an upgraded air intake system, produces 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. All trims use a 7-speed automatic transmission using a standard rear-wheel drive and an optional all-wheel-drive system. 

Both the engines feel more soothed for those long-distance travels, for the engine is quicker of the line and at higher speed, there’s a healthy delivery of torque at the upper ranges of the rev counters. Maneuvering the Q60 through the highway traffic is smooth and the transmission system feels at home too. Unlike in city traffic conditions, where the 7 Speed might appear sluggish at low rev range.

Comparing the Q60 with its rivals, the INFINITI takes the edge with its bigger engine that discharges more horsepower than its competition. The 2021 Audi A5 belts out 261 hp and is the closest any car can get to the Q60 in terms of raw power. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe's 255 hp 2.0L I4 engine follows the suite, leaving the BMW 4-Series for the last

2021 Infiniti Q60 Acceleration and Braking Performance

Given that the 2021 Q60 will be a carryover of the 2020 model acceleration figures will remain the same just like the engine. This implies that the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Coupe will be able to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 5.4 seconds while clocking the quarter of a mile lap in as low as 13.3 seconds. 

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 5.4 seconds.

However, it must be noted that all three - Mercedes -Benz, BMW, and Audi have performance-oriented vehicles with different badges, namely, AMG, M badge, and the RS.

When put in comparison with those models, the Q60 does not enjoy many advantages as such. But then again, the Q60 was is more oriented towards being a fairly exciting family car, rather than a performance vehicle.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 is the fastest car in this segment. The 2021 BMW 4-Series follows closely with a 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 5.5 seconds. The 2021 Audi A5's acceleration figures rake in the third spot. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe is the slowest car of the lot

2021 Infiniti Q60 Ride and Handling.

The Infiniti Q60 is not a city car, courtesy of its uncoordinated gearbox. While driving around in city traffic, the seven-speed automatic constantly struggles to find the right gear to be in and makes a lot of noise doing so, as if it were asking to be set free. Also, its relatively long wheelbase and heft mean filtering through traffic isn’t all that easy.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 exhibits stunning straight-line performance.

In general, the Q60 is a blast to drive down the straights but it's in the corners where this car disappoints due to its poor steering response. The Dynamic Digital Suspension ensures that the Q60 exhibit poised driving skills. Coupled with good brakes that responds immediately and quickly, the Q60 manages to garner confidence in those high speeds.

2021 Infiniti Q60 Fuel Economy

7.9/10

The Infiniti Q60 offers a decent fuel-efficiency among the class without a compromise on performance, unlike most cars that offer either high power or decent fuel-efficiency – not both at the same time.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 can roll for 19 miles in the city or can gush through 27 miles on the highway. Summing up these figures we get a combined mpg of 22, which is not the very best in the class. The Infiniti Q60’s V6 might not be efficient, but this coupe offers best in class range, all credits to a 20-gallon fuel tank capacity.

However, INFINITI is not the most fuel-efficient vehicle on this list. It comes last in this race and its higher power output is mainly responsible. The relatively larger 20-gallon fuel tank offers a decent range on city and highway. In conclusion, the BMW 4-Series tops the list and stands as the most fuel-efficient choice in this list.

2021 Infiniti Q60 Interior

8.1/10

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 has a pretty modern interior layout. The dual-screen infotainment screen provides ample information, well distributed between the two. The dashboard has soft touches and the way the cabin has been laid out provides great ergonomics and a higher seating position too.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 continues its hotness-quotient inside the cabin as well. 

There’s sufficient comfort, support, and legroom in the first row. However, the rear row feels cramped due to the coupe’s sloping roofline and limited legroom. So it’s really only the front row seats, more precisely the driver’s seat, where one would want to spend most of their time on the inside of this Infiniti.

The front seats of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 are nicely bolstered and more oriented towards spirited driving.

The cabin uses premium materials and looks enticing. However, it features a traditional design that can feel outdated. As the Infiniti Q60 is a luxury car nonetheless, and it does offer that. Plenty of soft-touch materials and top quality fabrics spread across the cabin. There are several options to customize the look and feel of the interior too.

What brings a breeze of freshness inside the otherwise unchanged interior of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 is the addition of a few convenience features. The Infiniti Q60 Luxe trim gets heated seats and steering wheel as standard for the model year 2021. With the addition of these features, the Luxe trim becomes a much better package than the base Pure trim and justifies its price difference to the maximum. 

Some of the most notable interior features of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 are as follows -

  • 8-way power adjusting front seats
  • Multi-mode seat function in the 2nd row
  • Split-folding 3rd-row reclining seat
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Optional heated front seats, leather upholstery, and Memory driver seat

Does the INFINITI Q60 Coupe comes loaded with tech inside?

The 2021 INFINITI Q60 offers a dual infotainment touch screen system. With an 8-inch touchscreen display that lies above the 7-inch touchscreen display. The touch input is not the best and at times response time is delayed.

A standard InTouch infotainment system along with a 13-speaker Bose Stereo system, Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto smartphone integration makes the Q60 up to date. However, at times it can be tedious to figure out the controls.

The dual infotainment touch screen system of the 2021 Q60 looks cool but is not the most practical setups.

Some of the most eminent infotainment features of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Coupe are:

  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Navigation
  • WiFi-Hotspot
  • Bluetooth
  • SiriusXM Traffic
  • SiriusXM Travel Link
  • SiriusXM radio
  • Hands-free calling
  • Satellite and HD radio
  • Optional Bose surround sound system with 13-speakers
  • Dual displays, Type A and Type C USB ports, 12V power outlets, wireless remote control.

What about the Cargo Capacity of the 2021 Infiniti Q60?

The trunk on the Q60 is smaller than its rivals and overall the interiors can feel cramped. And since we’re on the topic here, the Q60 is not the most practical car when it comes to storage space.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 Coupe offers a petite trunk space of just 8.7 cubic feet. It has the smallest cargo in the competition and even the seats do not fold back completely, unlike its German counterparts.

2021 Infiniti Q60 Exterior

8.0/10

Given that the Q60 received a makeover last year, the 2021 Q60 is expected to look and feel the same way as its outgoing model. It will retain the same sportier, bulging body design that will give the car a confident stance. The curves, creases, and the double arch-grille intensify the sleek looking Q60, making it a sight for sore eyes.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 features a “Zero-Lift” aerodynamic design.

Though, its exterior design philosophy falls short when it comes to its driving dynamics. That didn’t stop INFINITI from slapping a bunch of features to this upscale model.

The 2021 Q60 features front and rear “Zero-Lift” aerodynamic design, which helps the vehicle to remain stable at high speeds and cross-wind situations. The automatic adaptive front lighting system works well with the steering changes and lights up the path more than adequately.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 has the longest wheelbase in its segment.

At the rear, the Q60 looks a bit like a Supra, especially with that small extended wing on the tailgate. Design-wise, by placing the button of the tailgate amidst the taillights, the Q60 is quirky. The dual exhaust tips complement and enhance the fact that this is a sports car somewhere, that holds the capability to travel faster.

The 2021 INFINITI Q60 has the longest wheelbase in the segment and yet it feels compromised on passenger space provided in the rear row. The Audi A5 has the shortest wheelbase in the group. Apart from that, all the vehicles fare almost similar to each other in terms of length, width, and height. The Q60 has decent ground clearance, whereas the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has the lowest ground clearance in its segment. 

The swooping roofline of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 lends it a handsome stance.

What's new for the 2021 Infiniti Q60's outer shell is the addition of new hues to the color palette. The 2021 Infiniti Q60 is available in a total of 8 Exterior Shades, out of which 2 are new for the model year 2021, namely - Grand Blue and Slate Gray. The 2021 Infiniti Q60's color palette includes shades like - Pure White / Majestic White / Graphite Shadow / Black Obsidian / Midnight Black  / Dynamic Sunstone Red / Grand Blue (new) / Slate Gray (new).

Some of the exterior features that make the Infiniti Q60 command attention among other coupes are:

  • LED headlamps with DRLs
  • LED fog lights
  • Infiniti grille with Infiniti badge
  • 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels
  • Bulged rear bumpers
  • Decklid spoiler

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 comes across as a pretty safe coupe and for the range of assist features, it offers. However, since none of the current generation and models have been crash-tested by any of the authorities, we cannot give you any official rating figures.

The 2021 Infiniti Q60 comes loaded with a ton of safety features. 

But we expect it to fare in the better pack of the segment, if not the best. The 2021 Infiniti Q60 Coupe gets a slew of Active safety features as standard for the model year 2021, which used to be optional extras until last year. These features include adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assist. Moreover, the 2021 Infiniti Q60 also gets automatic emergency braking as a standard feature, unlike most other vehicles.

Some of the most prominent safety features of the 2021 Infiniti Q60 are:

  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Forward collision warning and mitigation with pedestrian detection
  • Emergency braking
  • Vehicle dynamic control with traction control
  • Optional Blind Spot mitigation

7.9/10

2021 Infiniti Q60 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is the most expensive offering of this segment. However, you also get the complete value of the bucks you spend on this "Three-pointed Star". The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe equips a 2.0L 4-pot engine that belts out 255 hp. The power figures of the Merc are less than that of the Q60. However, the C-Class Coupe compensates for this downside by offering better fuel economy, a well-appointed cabin that is plush as well as practical

2021 Mercedes-Benz C Class Coupe

Speaking of the value for money aspect, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class lags behind the Infiniti Q60 in terms of horsepower per dollar, yet excels in every other aspect. In a nutshell, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is a much better package than the 2021 Infiniti Q60 Coupe. However, one should also note that the real cost of owning a Merc is much more expensive than the ownership cost of the Infiniti Q60. 

2021 Infiniti Q60 vs BMW 4 series

When we’re talking about BMW, certain things will come for granted for sure and that includes powerful refined performance and a comfortable interior.

2021 BMW 4-Series Coupe

However, the 4-Series Coupe makes up for a better package by offering better fuel economy, and the most spacious cabin in this class. The all-new 2021 BMW 4-Series commands a serious road presence, excellent handling, and feature-rich interiors. Apart from that, the BMW badge ensures that you get a better resale value on the 4-Series Coupe and truly dominates the Infiniti on this aspect. 

2021 Infiniti Q60 vs Audi A5

When it comes down to looks, the Audi definitely stands out but Infiniti's design philosophy has its positives also. It might not have that many lines as the Audi A5, which makes it more dynamic to look at. The new A5 has definitely taken things a notch higher, however, since the 2021 Q60 is a carryover model, unlike the Audi. The Infiniti Q60 looks a bit dated.

2021 Audi A5 Coupe

The 2021 Audi A5 is competitively priced to the Infiniti Q60, but at almost the same price the A5 offers a much more feature-loaded cabin and a plusher ride quality. However, one thing that you should note is that the A5 seeks around $62,000 over a span of 5 years in the name of ownership cost. This amount feels quite expensive when compared to the estimated ownership cost of the Infiniti Q60 which is close to $50,000. 

2021 Infiniti Q60 Final Verdict

7.8/10

The INFINITI Q60 provides excellent value against its rivals. It has a smooth ride, a luxurious vibe, and offers great performance. However, it feels less sporty considering it being a Luxury Sport Coupe, can feel cramped, and offers a really poor cargo capacity.

There are rivals like the BMW 4-series and Audi A5 that offer a sharper ride and larger cargo capacity. The Mercedes Benz C-Class Coupe is a better vehicle. The rivals have more strengths than the Q60 and fewer weaknesses.
