2017 Infiniti Q60 Arrives In Detroit To Intimidate Rival Coupes

As good looking as the 2017 Q60 Coupe is, it will have a really tough time taking on the BMW 4-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, Audi A5 and Cadillac ATS Coupe.

Right out of the gate, the Q60 is a very attractive car. It’s got a bold yet stylish design, it’s rocking Infiniti’s new signature grille, it has LED headlights and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo 405 PS V6 unit.

That V6 also comes with 475 Nm (350 lb-ft) of torque and should prove considerably quicker than its other two engines configurations – 304 PS / 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) version of that V6 and a 211 PS 2.0-liter turbocharged unit.

What this means is that on paper, at its best, the Q60 Coupe should in theory be able to outrun the likes of the BMW 435i, Audi S5 and ATS Coupe, though the C63 AMG, M4 and the RS5 should be out of reach seen as how they all pack considerably more power.

Unfortunately, Infiniti hasn’t released any prices for this car, but they’d be wise to keep it within throwing distance of their German rivals.

What really fetches your attention when it comes to the Q60 Coupe, aside from the exterior, is the cabin, which looks just as premium as basically anything else on the market right now. It may not be packed with as much clever tech as the C-Class Coupe, but then again, few are.

Would you guys take the Q60 Coupe over the Merc, Bimmer, Audi or Caddy?
