MELBOURNE, Australia – The INFINITI Q60 is a premium sports coupe that combines expressive design with exhilarating performance and dynamics. The taut, muscular lines of the exterior underline the Q60’s considerable performance potential – reinforced by an advanced all-new 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine.
Lower and wider than previous INFINITI coupes, the Q60’s bold exterior expresses ‘Powerful Elegance’ – an INFINITI design language which gives the sports coupe a sinewy athleticism, confidently projecting a sense of motion and power. Dynamic developments include the lightweight and sophisticated new V6 engine, the latest version of Direct Adaptive Steering, and a digital suspension system.
The high performance 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine from the new and exclusive ‘VR’ powertrain family is born out of the brand’s extensive in-house experience in six-cylinder powertrain development. The new engine, which produces a maximum power output of 298kW, has been designed to offer increased power and torque while maintaining high levels of efficiency. A four-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol engine, turbocharged to produce 155kW, is also available (released in Australia in November 2016).
The Q60 Red Sport’s impressive power output is channeled through the rear wheels for immediate dynamic responses, delivering a truly dynamic drive.
The Q60 delivers an engaging sports coupe experience, with a balance of compliant ride and agile handling. Playing a key role in achieving this balance is INFINITI’s new Dynamic Digital Suspension (DDS), engineered to offer direct handling responses and high agility, and enhanced ride comfort – aided by new electronic and adaptive dampers.
INFINITI’s second-generation Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) offers high levels of feedback and more direct steering responses in the Q60. The ‘steer-by-wire’ system does away with mechanically linked parts, instead employing digital components to improve steering feel and feedback. The connection between the driver and DAS is instantaneous, thanks to the electronic connection between components.
A newly-enhanced Drive Mode Selector gives drivers the option to personalise and tailor the Dynamic Digital suspension (DDS) and Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) performance according to their needs and preferred driving style.
“INFINITI has always been at the forefront of daring design and pioneering technology – and the Q60 again offers both. We believe the Q60‘s qualities and core strengths – the way it looks and drives – will appeal to buyers in the premium sports coupe segment.”
Roland Krueger, President of INFINITI
