The current generation of this sports coupe has been around for a little bit more than two years. Normally, we wouldn’t expect bigger changes for the 2022 Infiniti Q60. However, there will be something very interesting. We are not talking about some early facelift or similar things. The next year is about to bring us a new powertrain option. It looks like the new hybrid version is ready and that will offer some pretty spectacular performances. Besides new powertrain, this version will also come with several distinctive details, both outside and on the inside.
- Powerful engines
- Upscale interior
- Comfortable seats
- Lots of standard equipment
- Rivals handle better
- Below-average fuel economy
The 2022 Infiniti Q60 will represent the fourth production year of the current generation and we won’t see bigger changes in terms of base design characteristics. The new model will continue with a familiar layout, with is a typical sports coupe, let’s say a real GT car. In terms of aesthetics, it relies on the brand’s latest design philosophy and offers one of the prettiest looks in the class for sure. In terms of mechanics, this model doesn’t feature too many differences compared to its sedan sibling Q50. It rides on the same platform and also features the same engine lineup. In terms of size, this model is similar to rivals like BMW 4-Series or Lexus RC.
When it comes to the interior layout, the 2022 Infiniti Q60 definitely one feature too many changes. The current model already offers one of the finest cabins in the class, characterized by hi-quality materials and a lot of craftsmanship. In terms of the dashboard layout, it comes with the company’s familiar two-screen layout and one of the best things about it is that the company kept many controls analog, which is far more convenient for a daily ride. Of course, the list of standard features is pretty long and includes Satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a six-speaker sound. Higher trims also offer navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot, premium sound system and more.
The biggest change for the next year will come under the hood. First of all, current V6 versions will carry on. An efficient 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 comes in two variants, with either 300 or 400 horsepower. For the next year, we are about to see a familiar 400-hp engine coupled with three electric motors. According to the latest reports, a max output will go up to 563 horsepower, which will be enough to move this coupe from zero to sixty in less than four seconds.
