Infiniti Q60 for
INFINITI's premium sports coupe, the new Q60, has just gone on sale and first deliveries of the sleek-looking newcomer will be made in the UK early next year.
The all-new Q60 comes with the choice of two powertrains - a 2.0-litre petrol engine turbocharged to produce 208bhp and a 3.0 litre V6 twin-turbo boosted to a whopping 400bhp.
The new Infiniti will be up against the likes of the latest Mercedes C-Class Coupe, the upcoming Audi A5 and the Lexus RC.
Prices start at Â£33,990 for the entry level Premium specification and the Q60 comes with state-of-the-art features such as Infiniti's second-generation direct adaptive steering and a new dynamic digital suspension with drive mode selector.
Four specifications are on offer with Premium Tech, Sport and Sport Tech trims priced from £37,690 to £38,690.
High tech equipment includes intelligent cruise control with distance control assist enabling the drive to set a desired speed and the car will automatically and smoothly decelerate in slowing traffic.
When the ICC system traffics pace resumes will bring the Q60 back up to the pre-set speed and safety distance.
Another feature is active lane control which works with the adaptive steering to evaluate the road ahead, automatically making small steering angle corrections if the car experiences minor direction changes due to uneven road surfaces or crosswinds.
An adaptive front lighting system improves visibility around curves by sensing the steering and turning the headlights. Together with LED auto-levelling lamps it increases the overall field of vision at night.
The Q60 drive mode selector gives drivers the option of altering steering response and feel. At the touch of a button there are six choices: Standard, Snow, Eco, Customise, Sport and Sport+, depending on the specification.
Under the bonnet, the all-new 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine has water-cooled air charging, a turbo speed sensor and advanced turbine blades designed for quicker response and higher peak torque.
Certain systems can also be accessed remotely through an Infiniti InTouch Services App which interacts directly with the car from a smartphone or personal computer.
Infiniti says that the new Q60 should be one of the quietest cars around for driver and passengers while on the entertainment front it comes with a 13-speaker Bose stereo which features active noise cancellation - a system that emits certain frequencies through the speakers to cancel out any exterior noise, especially from the engine.
