The all-new Infiniti Q60 (Nissan Skyline Coupe)

2016 Geneva Motor Show: All-new Infiniti Q60 to make European debut

In early February, Infiniti announced that it will unveil the all-new Q60 (the new Skyline Coupe, in Japan) to the European market at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, which will be held next month in Switzerland.

The new Q60 was launched to the US market in January at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. According to Nissan’s luxury brand for overseas, the all-new Q60 features a more emotional design than its previous model. The details on its front end and other areas were inherited from the Q80 Inspiration, a concept that was showcased at the Paris Motor Show in September 2014.

Highlights of the new Q60 include its double-arch front grille and crescent-shaped C-pillars. It also comes with LED headlights employing Light Guide Technology, 19-inch aluminum wheels with 20-inch available as an option, and a drag coefficient of 0.28 for outstanding aerodynamic performance.

The new Q60 also offers Infiniti’s second-generation Direct Adaptive Steering. In addition, Infiniti has established its new Dynamic Digital Suspension on the Q60 Sport grades for improved handling responsiveness.

The power train is the same newly developed “VR30” 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine as the 2016 Infiniti Q50 (the Nissan Skyline, in Japan), which was also unveiled at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year. This high-performance engine generates 405ps of maximum output and 48.4kgm of maximum torque. It comes with an Active Grille Shutter that offers enhanced cooling performance for the engine. It also features a seven-speed automatic transmission system with a choice of either rear- or all-wheel drive.
