KUALA LUMPUR: Inspired Motor Sdn Bhd or Infiniti Malaysia — the luxury arm of Japanese carmaker Nissan — has launched the all-new Infiniti Q60 coupe in Malaysia priced at RM308,800 excluding insurance.
“Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status-quo and in thinking differently. The way Infiniti challenges the status-quo is by designing our cars with powerful elegance, delivering empowering performance and being driver-centric and passenger-minded,” said its senior general manager Christopher Tan in a statement.
The fully-imported coupe comes with seven-year unlimited mileage warranty. There are five colours to choose from — Majestic White, Iridium Blue, Mightnight Black, Graphite Shadow and Dynamic Sunstone Red.
It is powered by a Mercedes-sourced 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder direct-injection petrol engine with an Idle Stop-Start system that is able to churn 211 hp at 5,500 rpm and 350 Nm of torque from 1,250 to 3,500 rpm. The rear wheel drive coupe is hooked up to a seven-speed automatic transmission that comes with Adaptive Shift Controls.
The Adaptive Shift Control adjusts its gearshift patterns depending on the current topographical road conditions. It also observes the driving pattern and behaviour of the driver and adapts accordingly.
Infiniti claims that the Q60 is capable of sprinting from a standstill to 100 kph in 7.3 seconds and has a top speed of 235 kph. Its engineers have worked to minimise Q60’s noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels.
The Q60 comes with LED headlights with light guides, LED fog lights, LED taillights, 19-inch two-tone wheels, an InTouch infotainment system, an 8-inch touchscreen display, a 7-inch colour vehicle information display, Drive Mode Selector, 14-way powered “spinal support” front seats with memory functions for the driver, semi-aniline leather upholstery, 13-speaker Bose Performance Series sound system, sunroof, ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control, acoustic windshield and Active Noise Cancellation System to reduce the engine noise frequencies.
As for the safety aspects of the Q60, it comes equipped with six airbags, electronic stability controla, an anti-lock braking system, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control, pop-up engine hood for pedestrian safety and isofix points.
“The Infiniti Q60 is just stunning and sexy,” said Tan.
