At the heart of every sports coupe is its engine. Infiniti offers the Q60 with a choice of two different engines. The Pure and Luxe trims have a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6, which makes 300 horsepower, while the top-of-the-line Red Sport 400 models also make use of the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6, though output has been upped to 400 horsepower, providing extremely strong acceleration at any speed. No matter the engine choice, buyers will get a 7-speed automatic transmission sending power to either the rear wheels or to all-four wheels, as each trim level also has an all-wheel-drive version.
Being a luxury coupe, even the base Pure models come generously equipped. Standard equipment includes 19-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, headlights and brake lights, remote keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a sequential welcome lighting system, leatherette seating surfaces, 8-way power adjustable front seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, satellite radio and not one, but two LCD touch screens, the upper one being 8 inches and the bottom one being nearly as large as 8 inches. Voice recognition, a rearview monitoring system, and an alarm are also included. The Luxe trim adds a 13-speaker Bose audio system, power moonroof and auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated compass.
The Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 takes things to the next level. With 400 horsepower, the 400 Red Sport is a truly fast car and plenty of exterior styling enhancements show off to the world just how serious the Red Sport is. It gets 20-inch wheels, upsized, red-painted brake calipers, red "S" badges and bigger exhaust tips. Inside, the Red Sport gets steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, leather seats, carbon fiber trim, aluminum accents and a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel. Like the 3.0t Sport, the Red Sport also comes with computer-controlled dynamic digital suspension, which should make the car handle on rails.
Safety features on the Q60 include a bevy of airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control and a brake assist system. Optional safety features include a backup collision intervention system, a blind-spot warning system, predictive forward collision warning and an advanced lane departure warning system.

The Infiniti Q60 continues into 2022 mostly unchanged although Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard across the lineup.
The Infiniti Q60 competes with other mid-sized coupes such as the BMW 4-series and the Audi A5. Even base model Q60s are well equipped, so those in the market for a luxury coupe owe it to themselves to check out Infiniti's offering.
