The 2015 Q60 was and still is a capable machine thanks to its 3.7-liter V-6 but some said that the older gen’s design language was a bit vanilla. Now Infiniti is coming out more aggressive design for its third generation Q60 coupe.
So how does the new Q60 visually compare with the older model? CarScoops took the liberty answering that question or you.
The new coupe is literally bigger than its predecessor with a wider body creating a lower center of gravity for better driving dynamics. Its roofline remains largely unchanged but that slope does continue to the boot in a continuous line. A new trapezoid grille, angled headlights lined with light strips and a sportier rear bumper gives the front a sportier look. Also worth mentioning is the extra kink in the rear passenger windows at the C-pillar, the same kink found on the QX60. A new C-piller trend perhaps?
While the exterior did receive an overhaul with new aggressive features, the new design still retains elements of the previous generation mainly found in the hood’s power bulges (a bit wider than the 2015 model's), the pinched lines running from the front to the rear fender, and the dual sport exhaust pipes.
To those who were hoping to have a matching interior, you may be a bit disappointed because even though the interior received a much needed upgrade, Infiniti decided to go with a more relaxed and luxurious approach than a sporty one. The cabin is trimmed with luxurious materials like contrast stitched red or white leather, silver accents and aluminum or wood trim.
Infiniti may have left much of the old design behind when they created a more aesthetically competitive coupe but it still hearkens back to the second gen Q60.
