I-LINE RED SPORT
If sales of luxury sedans have been in free fall in recent years because of the SUV craze, imagine the pressure on sporty coupes. You have to be at the top of your game to get the interest you need to survive and in that niche, doing well is not enough. Despite their charms, only 460 units of the Infiniti Q60 have been sold in Canada since the beginning of the year; a drop of just over 44% compared to last year.
It was in 2014 that Infiniti revised the nomenclature of its models and that the G37 coupe was renamed Q60. The current generation appeared in 2017 and despite a rather interesting product overall, it is difficult to support the comparison with other luxury coupes. In this niche segment, buyers are passionate and they value prestige, performance and style. It is unfortunately here that vehicles such as the Lexus RC and the Infiniti Q60 are taken aback by what the Germanic trio offers.
Although they are much less practical than sedans, I have always been fond of sports coupes since they reward you with more enticing and dynamic lines. Wandering aboard a two-door sports car demonstrates your affection for the car and when the performance is at the rendezvous, the experience is even more successful.
I had the chance to reconnect with the Q60 in its most fierce version, the Q60 I-LINE RED SPORT, which at first glance has everything to turn heads with his low and wide posture, encamped on his black rims. 20 inches. A dual sport exhaust and a small carbon fiber fin enhanced the look of our vehicle, as did its brake calipers painted red. Several people met during the test fell under the charm of this little-known car, and let's face it, that's what you're looking for with a sports coupe, especially in an over-powered version.
