Infiniti’s brand turns hands when one thinks Asian performance, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the new Q60 sport coupe is one nonchalant but powerful machine. Whether this 400-horsepower coupe can wind up competing with the BMW 3-series-and-up is certainly not a foregone conclusion.
Infiniti is definitely no slouch in making sure that what’s under the hood is rational, too: We’ve got a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine to play with, which exceeds the 3.7-liter engine that generates up to 360 hp on the hybrid version (328 on the standard) of Q50 sedan.
With sport DNA and exterior DNA that’s as glossy as it is substantial, the anticipated vehicle is also poised to give the Mercedes C-Class a run for its money, considering the 7-speed transmission and an optional all-wheel drive.
All these jazzy features are why The Verge calls the whip appeal “svelte” (and we can’t help but think that using “whip appeal,” a la Babyface’s classic song of the same title, is a must here).
