2014 Infiniti Q60 Coupe Once Again Stirs the Soul with Unique Blend of Seductive Styling with Exhilarating Performance


Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Offering an unmatched combination of dynamic design, exhilarating performance and a modern, luxuriously crafted interior, the 2014 Infiniti Q60* Coupe is a pure expression of intense sports coupe performance. Now in the sixth year of its current generation design, the Q60 Coupe retains its standing as one of the most seductive vehicles in class - in both style and performance.


Seductive Infiniti Style

The Infiniti Q60 Coupe's smooth, aerodynamic design offers flowing front fender curves, a wave-style hood, expressive front fascia with Infiniti's signature double-arch grille and L-shaped High-Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional xenon headlights. The strong side character line and side sills integrate with the large wheel wells and performance-oriented wheel and tire packages to transmit an added sense of power and vibrancy.


The rear of the Q60 Coupe features broad rear fenders flowing into the large LED taillights, refined rear bumper, integrated RearView Monitor camera, rear underbody air diffusers and large dual exhaust outlets with chrome finishers.


The 2014 Q60 Coupe's interior design again features sophisticated craftsmanship, with a cockpit-oriented front driver and passenger area, Infiniti signature "double wave" instrument panel design featuring the Infiniti-signature analogue clock and dramatic, full-length centre console with a leather and aluminium-clad shifter. "Shodo" aluminium interior trim adds a unique look to the instrument panel, centre console and door panels. The instrument panel includes Infiniti electroluminescent instrumentation with white illumination and integrated multi-function information drive computer display (average fuel consumption, real-time fuel economy, average speed, elapsed time, running distance, distance to empty, outside air temperature, warning displays, odometer and automatic transmission shift indicator).


A standard double hand-stitched leather-covered steering wheel is designed for maximum comfort and usability, with standard wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls. Solid magnesium paddle shifters are standard for the 7-speed automatic transmission. The 8-way power driver and front passenger seats are appointed with Infiniti's exclusive premium leather and feature 2-way adjustable head restraints and a unique rear-seat access system (the front seats move forward automatically at the touch of a button to allow passengers into the rear seats).


Technology and convenience features include standard Infiniti Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, Remote Keyless Entry system, a tilt/telescoping steering column with increased travel, illuminated glove compartment and automatic temperature control. Standard is a 11-speaker Bose® Premium Sound system with AM/FM, 1 CD/DVD reader with MP3 WMA compatibility, speed sensitive volume control, and audio auxiliary input, as well as a 7-inch colour display. The Q60 Coupe also features a USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices.


Two interior colour combinations are offered - Graphite and Stone interior with high contrast Graphite components.


Exhilarating Performance

All 2014 Infiniti Q60 Coupe models come equipped with a 3.7-liter VQ-series V6 with VVEL (for Variable Valve Event and Lift) rated at 329 horsepower and 360 Nm @ 5,200 rpm of torque. The VVEL system combines hydraulic-controlled variable valve timing and electronically controlled variable valve lift on the intake side to help improve performance and response. The intake camshafts, featuring continuously variable lift control teamed with the Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS), allow for a 7,500 rpm redline.


The engine also features ladder frame construction, large crank journal and pin diameters, asymmetric piston skirts, twin knock sensors, an electronically controlled "drive-by-wire" throttle system, lightweight pistons, Iridium spark plugs and a symmetric twin air intake system. The specially tuned dual exhaust system features equal length exhaust manifolds and low muffler exhaust backpressure to help improve engine breathing.


The foundation for the Q60 Coupe's impressive handling and ride performance comes from its second-generation FM (Front Mid-ship) platform. The 4-wheel independent suspension design features lightweight aluminium components and large front and rear stabilizer bars.


The front suspension is a double-wishbone design, with a single pivot lower wishbone and a long upper link, while the multi-link rear suspension separates the shock absorbers and springs, locating the shock absorber inline with the wheel centre. These designs help minimize alignment changes and reduce suspension friction for more nimble handling and smoother riding characteristics. Responsive steering is provided by a vehicle-speed-sensing design, which provides optimum steering effort at both high and low vehicle speeds. Standard on all Q60 Coupes is Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC).


Braking performance is provided by standard 4-wheel vented discs with 4-channel, 4-sensor Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist.


A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning is standard on all models.


Every 2014 Q60 Coupe is available with a long list of standard safety and security features, including an Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and occupant classification sensor, roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection and front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags. Also standard are 3-point ALR/ELR seat belts (driver's side ELR only) and front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters, front seat Active Head Restraints and the ISOFIX. 


*Note to editors: Infiniti’s models will now simply be prefixed either by ‘Q’ for sedans, coupes and convertibles or ‘QX’ for crossover and SUVs. To communicate a logical model hierarchy, a two digit number will follow – the higher the number, the higher its place in the model range. Infiniti’s new nomenclature strategy will be implemented in logical stages within the existing product range, as new model year variants are introduced - the Infiniti QX70 (formerly Infiniti FX) was the first to feature the new badging in the Middle East.
