MUSCAT: Premium sports coupe Infiniti Q60 that combines expressive design with exhilarating performance and dynamics has won the hearts of auto aficionados in Oman. With its unique styling, next-generation feel and innovative technologies, the all-new Q60 is all set to be a market leader in Oman.
Stressing that all-new Q60 continues Infiniti’s legacy of advancing the premium coupe segment, Majed Abdel Malak, Area Sales Manager, Infiniti Middle East said, “We are delighted to be here in Oman launching the Q60 which is our third-generation coupe. This product belongs to the niche market of premium coupe segment cars. It comes with a beautiful design and lot of new technology, safety features and of course not to forget the performance which is the best attribute of the car. We have different range of engines too. This 2017 model is powered by 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine and new V6 powertrain technology, offering 400 hp.”
Saying that it is the perfect luxury cars for people who go after more performance and power he added, “Anyone who is looking for a lifestyle vehicle, wants to be distinctive on the road and is looking for some adventure should opt for the vehicle. It has competitive features which it can compete with all the big players in this segment.”
High performance engine
The taut, muscular lines of the exterior underline the Q60’s considerable performance potential – reinforced by an advanced all-new 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine.
The high performance 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine from the new and exclusive ‘VR’ powertrain family is born out of the brand’s extensive in-house experience in six-cylinder powertrain development. The new engine available with 400hp in the Q60 Red Sport 400 – has been designed to offer increased power and torque while maintaining high levels of efficiency.
A four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine, turbocharged to produce 208 hp, is also available. As standard, power is channeled through the Q60’s rear wheels for immediate dynamic responses.
Sense of motion and power
The Q60 is characterised by flowing sculptural lines and strong, muscular proportions. Its sinewy athleticism confidently projects a sense of motion and power, coupled with an effortless, almost weightless stance.
Unifying features such as the double-arch grille and the crescent-cut C-pillars – which arc forward and emphasize the car’s dynamic quality – ensure that the sports coupe is instantly recognizable as an Infiniti. LED headlights, employing ‘light guide technology’ to spread light evenly on the road ahead, are designed to emulate the shape of the human eye, providing an alluring ‘face’ to the car.
The Q60 features newly-designed 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels as standard. The ‘Red Sport 400’ models – more performance-oriented versions of the car – have wider wheels and tires at the rear, contributing to a more aggressive stance while also improving handling and grip with a higher capacity for lateral G-forces. The wheel gaps – the spaces between tires and wheel arches – are tighter than ever, further lowering the visual volume of the car and giving it a low, powerful stance.
The Q60 embodies Infiniti dedication to developing new and innovative driving technologies that deliver a confidence-inspiring and personalized experience behind the wheel.
The second-generation of Infiniti world-first Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) is an advanced ‘steer-by-wire’ system that has undergone significant re-tuning to enhance steering feel and feedback without compromising comfort. The Q60 driver can choose from seven personalized modes to customize steering performance according to their preferred driving style.
Developed to work in tandem with DAS, an all-new electronic suspension system, Dynamic Digital Suspension (DDS), monitors the vehicle’s body roll, pitch and bounce rate to deliver a secure ride by further reducing unwanted steering feel and vibrations.
The Q60 includes safety technologies that actively protect people in and around the car. The Q60’s suite of driver assistive safety technologies allows the car to monitor for and identify potential hazards, actively assisting the driver to avoid those hazards, and, if a collision is unavoidable, mitigate the effects.
The range of active, and passive, safety technologies include:
-Monitoring for hazards: Around View Monitor; Intelligent Cruise Control with Distance Control Assist
-Appearance of a hazard: Lane Departure Prevention; Blind Spot Intervention; Moving Object Detection; Predictive Forward Collision Warning
-Avoiding and mitigating the effects of a collision: Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection; Back-up Collision Intervention
In addition to these safety technologies, the Q60 includes other driver-assistive features such as the Adaptive Front Lighting System and Active Lane Control.
The Q60 will be available in 10 exterior colors, with ‘Dynamic Sunstone Red’ and ‘Solar Mica’ completely new to the Infiniti range.
