Infiniti Malaysia has pulled the wraps off the all-new Infiniti Q60, a premium sports coupe that combines expressive design and exciting performance, aimed at the traditional buyer base of cars like the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe. The all-new Q60 Coupe replaces the G37 Coupe first launched in 2009 and is the only two-doored offering within the Infiniti stable.
The Q60’s design combines is sculpted lines and strong, muscular proportions. The new car boasts instantly identifiable Infiniti design features such as the double-arch front grille and the crescent-cut C-pillars. Along the flanks, the Q60 features newly-designed 19-inch aluminium alloy wheels as standard fitted with 255/40 RF19 run-flat tyres. The new design also boasts an impressive aerodynamic efficiency of 0.29 Cd.
The Q60 is powered by a four-cylinder, direct injected turbo-charged 2.0-liter engine that delivers 211hp at 5,500 rpm and 350 Nm maximum torque between 1,250 and 3,500 rpm. Infiniti’s Idle Stop-Start system is also fitted as standard and delivers a combined fuel economy rating of 7.5L/100km.
The engine is paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC). The system uses a lateral acceleration sensor to detect topographical changes in the road and modulate gear-selection patterns according to the changing conditions. Four drivetrain modes are selectable – ‘Standard’, ‘Snow’, ‘Sport’, and ‘Personal’.
On the inside, the Q60’s infotainment systems are centered on two touchscreens (8-inch upper and 7-inch lower), as part of the InTouch central control system, which controls all the in-car functions and eliminates the need for many switches and toggles.
Infiniti has worked on minimizing the Q60’s noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels by including Active Noise Cancellation components to filter out engine noise frequencies and an acoustic windshield further reduces noise entering the cabin. An all-new 13-speaker, Bose Performance Series sound system, the first for any production vehicle, has been tuned for the acoustics of the Q60.
The Q60 is equipped with six airbags as standard, a pop-up engine hood is also standard, engineered to meet new global safety standards for pedestrian safety.
The Q60 is fully imported from Japan and is available in five exterior colors, with ‘Dynamic Sunstone Red’, the highlight colour of the new car.
On-The-Road price is inclusive of GST (without insurance) applicable in Peninsular Malaysia from RM308,800 with a 7-year unlimited mileage warranty.
