Nissan’s luxury brand introduces the 2022 Infiniti Q60. The coupe gets more intelligent for the new model year. The first cars begin reaching showrooms. The starting price is near $43,000.
The automaker launched the Infiniti Q60 in 2017, and now the car enters the 2022 model year with the only change – the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay across the range.
The newcomer is available in three well-equipped grades – Pure, Luxe, and Red Sport 400. They cost $42,775, $51,325 and $59,225 respectively, including a destination and handling charge.
All have a 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine under the hood that is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and either rear-wheel drive or Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system (a $2,000 option). The award-winning VR-series unit produces 300 hp or max 400 hp at 6,400 rpm, and 295 pound-feet of torque at 1,600-5,200 rpm (max 350 lb-ft).
Two suspension systems are offered on the Q60: a standard four-wheel independent suspension system, and a Dynamic Digital Suspension on the top trim. Every Infiniti Q60 is equipped with the brands’ high-resolution InTouch dual touchscreen display and InTouch Services. Two illuminated USB connections support USB-based Android Auto infotainment.
The exterior color palette offers eight paints including spectacular Dynamic Sunstone Red. Semi-aniline leather-appointed seats are available for mid- and top-level trims.
19-inch wheels come as standard, 20-inch aluminum-alloy sport wheels are exclusive on the Red Sport 400 version, which is designed for those who like ‘hot’ driving and have uptown tastes. This top trim level features the cabin in Matte Black Carbon Fiber with Dark Chrome accents.
Besides, the new Infiniti Q60 boasts an advanced Active Noise Cancellation technology and a 13-speaker Bose Performance Series sound system with Bose Centerpoint surround signal processing.
U.S. sales of the 2022 Infiniti Q60 start this fall.
