Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 30 - 41 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The cheapest Q60 to run is the 2.0-litre petrol, which Infiniti claims should return 41.5mpg fuel economy, though we’d be sceptical you can achieve that in the real world. It’s not going to make a compelling case as a business car either, since its 156g/km CO2 output will automatically exclude it from most fleet managers’ lists.

It won’t surprise you to find out the more powerful V6 is thirstier, with a claimed economy figure of 31.0mpg and CO2 of 208g/km, meaning tax is going to be expensive.

Another point to raise here is the smallest alloys on offer are 19-inch, so tyres won’t be cheap either. 

With just two powertrains and no variations on wheel size, the Infiniti Q60 is relatively simple when it comes to CO2 emissions: 156g/km for the 2.0-litre version and 208g/km for the Q60S with its 3.0-litre V6.

Neither is a particularly impressive figure, if we’re being brutally honest, but at least the NOx and particulate emissions will be lower than rivals with diesel engines – something that won’t save you any money, but might just let you sleep better at night. 

We haven’t heard any horror stories about Infiniti’s reliability record and there haven’t been any major recalls since 2014 on any of the firm’s models, so our only insight here is that the Q60 does feature a lot of new equipment including the first use of the V6 twin-turbo petrol engine. 

There’s a lot to go wrong, but no indications that it’s likely to.
