Amazing design, perfect combination of colors, great driving precision, such a beautiful impressive car, you need to drive it.

The all-new 2017 INFINITI Q60 turns new balance between comfort and performance into something revolving. The comfort-biased ride has changed to more dynamic, so the system is adjusting to road corners and imperfection without driver’s interference. It took many years of development to finally perform Q60’s optional Second-generation Direct Adaptive Steering, which can revolutionize the way we drive. The system is automatically making subtle adjustments to make your ride smooth and comfortable on different surfaces and different circumstances, decreasing feedback and vibration through the steering wheel.

With the new V6 twin-turbo, acceleration feels instant and unlimited. Gasoline Direct Injection, water-cooled air charging and a turbo speed sensor were developed for instant response. Tap into 300-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, faster than you ever imagined. There also are new cooling and valve timing systems. The turbo spools quickly to produce 208 hp at 5,500 rpm and outputs a stirring 258 lb-ft of torque.
