Infiniti Q60 2.0t Priced In the UK From £33,990, 3.0t to Follow Later On

Stylish two-door coupes in the compact executive segment are more popular than ever these days. For what it’s worth, the Infiniti Q60’s design can teach the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5 a thing or two. What’s more, the Q60 is reasonably priced.

In the United Kingdom, pre-orders for the 2017 Infiniti Q60 are go on the manufacturer’s website. Sales for the entry-level model and its 2.0-liter force-fed engine are slated to start in Europe this October, while the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 variant will set foot on European soil sometime next year.

At £33,990, the Infiniti Q60 2.0t offers 208 horsepower (211 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. A rather curious thing about this output is that it doesn’t have an equivalent in the BMW 4 Series or Audi A5 range. Spec for spec, the closest rival for the Infiniti Q60 2.0t is the Mercedes-Benz C 250 Coupe, especially since it's powered by the same engine.

Depending on the market, the Q60 2.0t can be enhanced with an optional all-wheel-drive system. Even though the UK-spec model has yet to be undressed of all its secrets, the U.S. version can offer us a glimpse of what’s in store. As standard, the 2017 Infiniti Q60 2.0t comes with content that includes highlights such as 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, a pair of 8-way powered high-backed bolstered sport seats, contrast stitching, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calls and audio streaming, and RearView Monitor system.

The slightly better specced Q60 2.0t Premium adds a 13-speaker Bose Performance Series audio system, power sliding and tilting moonroof, and many more. In any case, Infiniti plays its cards on heaps of standard bits and bobs, as well as the fine-looking lines of the Q60 sports coupe.

Last, but not least, another feature that differentiates the Q60 from the usual suspects in the segment is the Direct Adaptive Steering system. To be offered exclusively on the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6-powered models, Direct Adaptive Steering means there’s no mechanically coupled linkage between the road and the Q60’s steering wheel. Despite everything, Infiniti insists that the steer-by-wire system “offers high levels of steering feel and feedback.”
