Overall Rating


The Q60’s curvaceous appeal can be referred to as one of the best design doings from the company, that replaces the uneven uneasiness caused to the eyes by the previous generation G37 Coupe. 

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 is offered in 3 trims - Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport 400. The Red Sport 400 rests at the top of this lineage, and as the name suggests is the sportiest presentation of the ride. 

The Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe gets a 3L V6 engine that is further assisted by a set of turbos, in order to generate a punchy 400 hp, along with 350 lb.-ft. Of the spinning force. The sticker price of the Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe starts at $57,150. The price tag lands the ride in a pit with some renowned gladiators such as the Audi S5, the BMW 4-series, and the Porsche 718 Cayman Coupe. Will the Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe be able to survive this carnage? Let’s find out…

We’d recommend you to go for the AWD variant since the INFINITI Intelligent All-wheel Drive system fitted on the ride is totally worth the praise. The AWD variant provides a much better grip than the RWD and establishes a well-built connection with the road.

2020 Infiniti Q60 RED SPORT 400 Coupe Engine and Performance

8.0/10

A Sports Coupe might have many elements playing a crucial role in how the car drives, but what truly makes a coupe sporty is the engine. The Infiniti Q60 is offered in 2 engine options - a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine, and a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine. 

The top of the line trim Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe also houses a 3.0L twin-turbo V6, which has been tuned up to fabricate a punchy 400 hp along with 350 lb.-ft. Of peak torque which kicks in at 1600 rpm. 

All the engines on offer in the Q60 lineup are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission which delivers the power to either the rear wheels or to all the four wheels. Though the transmission does a decent job, it is not as subtle as the one on offer in competitors such as the BMW 440i. When using the paddles to change gears, it is quite slow to react which is quite disappointing.

2020 Infiniti Q60 RED SPORT 400 Coupe Interior

7.0/10

The cabin of the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe is elegant and looks absolutely business. There are a number of striking elements that lend the 2020 Q60 Red Sport’s cabin an aesthetic vibe. Elements such as the waterfall-style focal panel and the shapely dash steal the show for the cabin and enhance its appeal. 

2020 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe Front Seats

The seats of the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe are one of the strong points of its cabin too. With detailed stitching and styling, the seats loan the Coupe a sporty hint, without sparring it from comfort. The front seats are firm and the bolstering provides ample support.

Though the front seats are an absolute USP for the Red Sport 400, the rear seats are the factor that kind of spoils the game for the ride. The rear headroom is scarce, accrediting to the roofline that takes a stark dip while going backward. Moreover, the legroom also feels tight and keeps you on your toes for the majority period. 

Does it come loaded with tech inside?

The standard infotainment arrangement found on the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe hosts a dual-screen layout, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen on top, and a 7.0-inch below that. While the plan and design of the insides are very satisfying, the double screen arrangement is truly not cool. Working the screens expects you to take your eyes off the street while you are driving and the screen itself isn't very receptive to contact.

Some other infotainment features that are on offer in the 2020 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe are: 

  • 13-speakers Bose Performance Series Surround Sound System
  • Real-time weather display
  • Speed sensitive volume
  • Wireless phone connectivity
  • SiriusXM AM/FM/HD/Satellite with seek-scan, single in-dash CD player

Creature comforts on offer in the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400

The 2020 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 is a sports coupe by its profile, yet packs an array of features that takes the ride’s comfort quotient up a notch. Some of the most noteworthy convenience features on-board are: 

Prominent interior features of the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe are:

  • 8-way Power Front Seats (slide, recline, lift, thigh support)

  • Leather Wrapped 3-Spoke Heated Steering Wheel

What about utility?

Sports coupes are often recognized for the tight space they offer under their trunk hoods but in case of the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe, the ride appears meek, even when seen by such segment standards. 

The Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 coupe’s large opening makes it easy to load or unload stuff, but what downs the game for the ride is the space provided for loading. The ride offers just 8.7-cubic feet of cargo volume, which seems pale against all of its competitors.

8.0/10

The Infiniti Q60 coupe is one hell of a bosomy enchanter that can woo just by a look at it. The front end of the car keeps things tight from end-to-end with a chunky quadrangle Infiniti grille with kinks near the headlamps. Things get a bit sloppy (literally) towards the rear end. The slanting roofline comes down to make a small boot spoiler and the LED taillights are exceptionally smooth and keen. It surely seems as though it has a place with a much premium vehicle. A thrilling back and a couple of more cuts in the guard completed off with a mellow diffuser and exhaust pipes conclude the look for the Q60.

2020 Infiniti Q60 RED SPORT 400 Coupe Competition

Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe vs. Porsche 718 Cayman Coupe

The Porsche 718 Cayman Coupe is the second most expensive ride of the segment, after the Q60, with prices starting from $56,900. The ride houses a 2.0L twin-turbo inline 4 engine, that can generate a peppy 300 hp along wit 280 lb.-ft. Of torque. The 718 Cayman Coupe though lags behind the Q60 Red Sport 400, in terms of rapidness, but triumphs over points such as the cargo capacity, interior appeal, and of course, the drama associated with the ride.

Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe vs. BMW 4-series 440i 

The BMW 440i is the most reasonable offering of this segment. The Bimmer obtains power via a 3.0L turbocharged inline-6 engine, that can fabricate 322 ponies, along with 330 lb.-ft. Of the spinning force. Though the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe is going to be your pick if gorgeous looks are the first thing you seek in your ride, but just in case, performance is your fetish, the BMW 440i does exactly what the Bavarians are known for - PERFORM!

2020 Infiniti Q60 RED SPORT 400 Coupe Final Verdict

7.8/10

The Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 is an ideal package of smashing looks, seductive performance, and a sweet interior. However, the ride also carries some major minus points with it, such as the limited cargo space, complex infotainment panel, and above all- the price tag it comes at. The Infiniti Q60 is without any doubt a great set of wheels, but the segment it competes in offers some much more lucrative options to go for.
