- the starting msrp for the 2021 infiniti q60 is just $300 more than last year, which is fair since the base model is nearly identical to 2020.
- the mid-level luxe trim is the one we recommended last year, and the slight changes for 2021 mean that this is still the one to get, but now it comes with heated seats and steering wheel as standard.
- rear-wheel drive is standard for the q60, and all three trim levels can be upgraded to all-wheel drive for $2000.
after keeping the 2020 q60 pretty much the same between model years, infiniti has added a few new features and colors for 2021. there are no major changes here—the new sedan keeps its stylish design—but it now starts at $42,675, a modest $300 increase over last year's model.
all 2021 q60 models are powered by a 3.0-liter v-6 engine that produces 300 horsepower (400 hp in the red sport 400) and 295 lb-ft of torque (350 lb-ft in the red sport 400), paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission.
the new q60 comes in three trim levels: pure, luxe, and red sport 400, with rear- and all-wheel-drive versions of all three. choosing awd adds $2000 to the fwd price. the new exterior paint colors are grand blue and slate gray, with dynamic sunstone red a $900 option on either the luxe or red sport 400 trims. for 2021, the red sport 400 trim starts at $59,125 and offers options including a performance package ($1206) with special exhaust and air intake and a carbon-fiber package ($2280) featuring various trim and a rear spoiler.
the middle-level luxe trim gets the lion's share of the changes for 2021. starting at $51,225, the luxe upgrades the pure's offerings by making a heated steering wheel and heated front seats standard, along with semi-aniline-leather-trimmed seats. the luxe trim now also offers remote engine start as part of the $2050 essential package, which also introduces rain-sensing wipers to the q60.
the luxe replaces the standard six-speaker audio offering with a 13-speaker bose performance series audio system. it also comes standard with predictive forward-collision warning and automated front emergency braking with pedestrian detection, neither of which are available on the pure. blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and backup collision intervention are standard on the red sport 400 trim and available as part of the essential package on the luxe. the red sport 400 model can be ordered with the $1700 proactive package, which comes with adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and prevention, active lane control, and other features.
infiniti is taking orders for the 2021 q60 now, and deliveries will start before the end of the year.
