What is it?
Put simply, this is the entry point for the Infiniti Q60 range – the two-door coupé version of the Q50 saloon. Instead of a 400bhp twin-turbo V6 under the bonnet, you get a more modest 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that also benefits from a bit of forced induction.
'A bit' is the right turn of phrase here; air isn’t so much forced into the cylinders as lightly persuaded. The result is a modest 208bhp, enough to propel nearly 1800kg of Infiniti to 62mph in a reasonable 7.3sec.
The pricier V6 may get four-wheel drive as standard, but you have to be content with rear-wheel drive in the 2.0T. What you can have is Infiniti’s drive-by-wire Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) system. This is standard on Sport models and an £800 option on other variants. This has had its software tweaked in an attempt to improve feel and feedback over the same system in the Q50.
