2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 new car reviews

The Red Sport 400 trim of the Infiniti Q60 replaces the standard 204-horsepower, inline-four with a twin-turbocharged 400-horsepower V6 powerplant. It also raises the starting price from $38,950 (base 2.0-liter car) to $51,300. The 400 horsepower may seem to be the biggest difference between the two, but there are many other upgrades added on as well: dynamic digital suspension, larger brakes and staggered 19-inch wheels, among others.

The Q60 is the nicest, best looking and quietest car I have driven from Nissan/Infiniti in a long time. With 400 horsepower, the performance is brisk and moves this car with great, if not startling, alacrity. The car is comfortable. It handles and stops well. The ride comfort and noise level (while maybe not at luxury car levels) are very acceptable. Styling wise, the Q60 is genuinely attractive in my eyes and doesn’t have the huge gaping guppy mouth of most Infinitis.

Finally, Infiniti makes a car I really like and then they miss the mark, with a price tag north of $50,000. At this price point, a BMW M2 offers more handling and style and for nearly $10,000 less, a 4 Series or even M 235i offers a similar driving experience.

Nissan always has made a boss 2liter mill. Glad to see theyre still at it.

Ive always liked Infinti too - they have a way of mixing performance with upscale styling in a way where neither gets in the others way.

Glad they finally are adressing fender gap...Ludicrous was an understatement in the 1st decade of the millenia.

I like Infinitis..............I really do but they always seem to be stuck in that weird middle ground of either too expensive or not enough substance. There always seems to be a better choice for the money.
