Infiniti Q60 coupe priced from £33,990

Infiniti's 4-series rival gets competitive entry-level pricing and high levels of technology

Infiniti has announced pricing for the upcoming Q60 coupe, which goes on sale in Europe in October.

Based on the Q50 saloon and set to rival the Lexus RC, BMW 4-series and Audi A5, the entry-level 2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder model will begin at £33,990.

That undercuts the 2-litre turbo Lexus which begins at £34,995, but does come in a little higher than the entry-level 420i SE, which has a £30,260 price tag.

The Q60 coupe develops 208bhp in 2-litre turbocharged form. In the lardy saloon – which weighs in at 1678kg – it has enough punch to reach 62mph in 7.2sec and hit 152mph.

Quicker still will be the models equipped with Infiniti’s ‘VR30’ 3-litre twin-turbocharged V6 – a unit from the same engine family as the VR38 in the Nissan GT-R. Overseas it will be available in 300bhp and 400bhp outputs but UK buyers will get the latter option.

As standard, drive is sent to the rear wheels, though a rear-biased all-wheel drive system is also available. Infiniti claims a balance of ride and handling with its chassis setup, with Dynamic Digital Suspension, which uses electrically-adjustable dampers and a selection of driving modes to tailor the car’s handling to the driver’s needs.

Infiniti’s Dynamic Adaptive Steering, a steer-by-wire system now in its second generation, will also feature on the Q60. Claims of a “high level of steering feel” are yet to be verified, but it will be vital for the Q60’s aspirations as a driver’s car.

Full pricing and specification for the UK market are yet to be confirmed.
