NEW FOR 2015:
– Base Coupe and Coupe AWD trims discontinued
– New colours: Magestic White. Blue Onyx for Coupe discontinued
For 2015, Infiniti’s only sports car continues on for the most part unchanged, other than a new white paint, and a slight reshuffling of the Coupe’s lineup.
Infiniti has consolidated the Coupe’s offerings into two types – AWD cars come exclusively equipped with a seven-speed automatic, while RWD cars come exclusively with the six-speed manual. The base rear-drive Coupe trim is deleted, while a new range-topping Limited trim is added which features optional equipment like navigation and radar cruise control as standard. As such, all Q60 Coupes now come with Sport-tuned steering, suspension, and styling accents. Got that? Good.
As for the Q60 Convertible, it is carried over unchanged.
This will likely be the final year of production or the Q60 in its current state; a new Q60 Concept has been making the rounds on the auto show circuit with a design that’s in line with the Q50 sedan. We’ve heard that it’ll offer both turbocharged four and six-cylinder power trains like the Audis, BMWs, and Benzes of the world. In the mean time, the Q60 continues to offer driving enthusiasts an authentic sports car experience with weighty and rich steering, a punchy 3.7-litre naturally aspirated V6 engine and a peach of a six-speed manual transmission.
The Q60 Coupe is available in Q60 Sport 6MT, Q60 Sport AWD, Q60 Limited 6MT, and Q60 Limited AWD trims, while the Convertible is available in Convertible Sport, 6MT Sport, Premier Edition, and IPL.
