2014 Infiniti Q60 Front
Infiniti calls it the Q60 and we still mistakenly call it the G, but the alphanumeric that best describes this Infiniti coupe is actually 370Z. The 2014 Infiniti Q60—known until last year as the G37 Coupe—is an aggressive, sharp, and athletic luxury sports coupe that doesn’t skirt around the fact that it shares its chassis and engine with Nissan’s brawny sports car.
Driving the 2014 Infiniti Q60 reminds us of when Infiniti burst onto the entry-level luxury scene with the original G35 in 2003. That car also shared many components with the Nissan 350Z of its time and shocked us with its sporty dynamics and the potent V-6 that made it a true BMW 3 Series competitor for thousands less. The formula became even stronger with the slightly more refined 2008 Infiniti G, which we named an Automobile Magazine All-Star that year.
Six years later, the Q60 continues to impress with its 330-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 that offers instantaneous throttle response and a raspy engine note. Its steering gives just the right amount of feedback and weights up perfectly when you throw the Infiniti into a corner. Yes, the suspension is stiff—due in part to our car’s optional sport package—but the car always feels poised and ready to attack without being uncomfortable. When pushed hard on a good road, it feels like a slightly grown-up version of the muscular, engaging Nissan 370Z we know and love.
When compared with its recently redesigned sedan counterpart, the Q50, the Infiniti Q60 is beginning to show its age. Its six-year-old infotainment system looks dated. You can’t get Infiniti’s dizzying suite of active safety technologies. The Q60’s V-6 is not as smooth and quiet as the revised version in the Q50. But despite all of the things the Infiniti Q60 lacks, we’re more enamored with what it has: real buttons and knobs instead of touchscreens, a snorty exhaust, organic steering feel, and an available six-speed manual transmission. It is too bad Infiniti is now going through an identity transformation, because the brand was really starting to get it right with cars like the G.

New For 2014

Other than the name change, the only differences for the 2014 Infiniti Q60 are color changes: a new Venetian ruby hue is added, and lapis blue and vibrant red are deleted.

Vehicle Summary

The 2014 Infiniti Q60 is the new nameplate for the coupe and convertible versions of Infiniti's bread-and-butter G model. Although the G sedan (now called the Q50) is redesigned for 2014, the coupe and convertible G will carry over as the Q60. The original G35 debuted in 2003 in coupe and sedan body styles, and when the G was redesigned for 2007, the coupe got a larger, 3.7-liter V-6 (becoming G37) to further differentiate it from the sedan. The sedan gained this larger engine and also became the G37 in 2009, and a hardtop G37 convertible was introduced the same year. For 2011, Infiniti introduced a new IPL performance model for the coupe and the convertible. The IPL had upgraded suspension tuning and a few exterior detail changes, along with an increase of 18 hp and 6 lb-ft of torque.

Overview

The 2014 Infiniti Q60 is more of a sports car than you might think. Ostensibly a more luxurious version of the somewhat harsh Nissan 370Z (with which it shares a platform), the Q60 sacrifices some luxury and refinement for cornering and acceleration. A BMW 3 Series is more well rounded, but the Infiniti offers impressive performance from its 330-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 -- and it costs way less than its German competitors.

Although the 2014 Infiniti Q60 convertible is heavier due to the weight of the hard top's folding mechanism, it is similarly sporty to drive. Compared with other luxury convertibles, the Infiniti has a relatively rigid structure, and it shares the same attractive styling (inside and out) as the coupe. The main downside of the convertible is the laughably small trunk area that is left once the hardtop is stowed.

We drove the 2014 Infiniti Q60 IPL model, with 18 extra horsepower and suspension tuning changes, and found the upgrades to be underwhelming. Think of it as more of a subtle performance package than a performance model like BMW's M or Mercedes-Benz's AMG divisions offer. It might be best to stick with the regular sport package, as the IPL upgrades do not offer enough of a performance advantage to justify the price premium.
