The Top Gear car review:Infiniti Q60 Coupe
For:Unusual, striking looks. Long-distance ability, driver aids work well
Against:Less fun to drive than a 400bhp coupe should be
What is it?
Infiniti’s Japanese take on a coupe derived from a compact saloon – in this case the Q50 four-door. Think about an Audi A5, or Mercedes C-Class Coupe. Probably not a BMW 4-series, since the Q60 is more of a touring car than the BMW is. It trades away driver stimulation for refinement, aided by raft of high technology. It comes as petrol 2.0-litre four-cylinder RWD, or 3.0 V6 with all-wheel drive. The external looks are pretty distinctive, and like any coupe the style is the draw. Like it and you’ll turn a blind eye to any other defects. Dislike it and no amount of dynamic talent will get you signing on the line.
