Nissan, more precise its luxury division Infiniti, prepares some big novelties for near future. After launch of compact sedan Q50, it is turn for an entry-level model in coupe variant, which will be called Q60. If we consider how Q50 was accepted, there is no doubt that new entry-level coupe will make excellent impression. New coupe is expected to come later this year and will be named 2016 Infiniti Q60. It will share many characteristics with Q50, both in visual and mechanical terms, but it will also have many unique features that will probably make it even more exceptional than 4-door sedan.
2016 Infiniti Q60 redesign
As we already mentioned, 2016 Infiniti Q60 will be based on 4-door sedan Q50. This basically means that this coupe will be based also on Infiniti Essence concept, just like sedan or also Infiniti M models. Basically, it will follow the same design language as sedan, but it will have plenty of unique details. If we add to this a coupe’s silhouette, it is logical that it will look even more attractive than Q50. The 2016 Infiniti Q60 will feature pretty much the same front end which will include familiar massive grille and narrow headlights. On the other side, rear end will be slightly modified. Rear spoiler will be modified and it will probably be slightly larger, while fancy apron and slim taillights will be replaced by more blinder ones. Expect less muscular shoulders, side lines are expected to remain pretty much unchanged.
2016 Infiniti Q60 engines
Although it isn’t officially confirmed yet, it is pretty much for sure that 2016 Infiniti Q60 will feature pretty much the same engine line up as its sedan relative. The main offer will be a 3.7 liter V6 engine. This unit, matted to a seven-speed automatic transmission, will be probably tuned up for this occasion and instead of 328 it will probably have over 350 horsepower. Beside this unit, 2016 Q60 will also come in hybrid variant. It will feature the same configuration as Q50, which has maximum output of 359 horses and 403 lb-ft of max torque.
2016 Infiniti Q60 release date and price
The 2016 Q60 will come by the end of the year. Expected price for base model is around 42.000 dollars.
