Q50 vs Q60

Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 (top) vs Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400

Let’s face it… the luxury-brand midsize sport-sedan and sporty-coupe segments aren’t exactly on fire these days. Even when it comes to performance-focused premium vehicles, the majority of American shoppers prefer crossover SUVs over traditional passenger cars. Infiniti knows this as well as any brand; all of its most-recent product launches—the redesigned-for-2019 QX50, the new-for-2022 QX55, and the redesigned-for-2022 QX60—are crossover SUVs. The Q50 sedan and its Q60 two-door coupe counterpart are the only traditional passenger cars in Infiniti’s model roster, and even within their respective classes (we categorize the Q50 as a premium midsize car and the Q60 as a premium sporty/performance car), they are pretty elderly players. The Q50 dates back to the 2014 model year and has not seen any major revisions other than updated powertrain offerings. The Q60 coupe debuted for 2017, on Q50-based architecture, and likewise has not seen significant updates since.

2022 Genesis GV70

We’re certainly not completely out from under the shadow of COVID-19 at this point, but it at least feels like we’re on the road back to some kind of normalcy. During the 2020 calendar year, most of the manufacturer-hosted press events our editors attend to produce our First Spin test-drive reviews were put on hold, but they’ve been ramping back up again throughout 2021.

2022 Infiniti QX60

2022 Infiniti QX60 Autograph

Consumer Guide Automotive The product-planning teams at major automakers typically develop detailed demographic profiles of the consumers they’re targeting with their new vehicles, sometimes going so far as to create a hypothetical ideal target customer. Infiniti has done just that with its redesigned-for-2022 QX60 three-row, 7-passenger crossover SUV. Her name is “Claire.” She’s smart and stylish. She’s a leader at work and someone friends come to for advice. She’s a mom, and like most people today, she’s very, very busy.
