Interior

For all of Infiniti's talk of modern technology in the Q60, the interior is a generation behind the competition. That's not to say it doesn't feel solidly constructed, but it's dated compared to the likes of the Audi A5.

There are obvious things like the foot-operated parking brake (welcome to 2002...) and the traditional automatic gear lever which clunks from P to D. Plus, despite a digital display between the analogue dials, there's no digital speedo display - something which is now standard on cars like the Skoda Fabia.

It's also the small details that let the Q60 down. Simple things like the exterior mirror controls and electric window switches feel cheap and not what you'd expect of a supposedly premium car. Picky? Yes, but the quality of cars that rival the Q60 is so high, anything slightly poor really stands out.

So what about the positives? Well the seats are very comfortable and supportive, with plenty of adjustment and there's a decent amount of room, even for six-footers. Sadly the same can't be said of the back two seats which are really cramped, although that's par for the course in coupes of this ilk. The boot is a good size with a wide opening, so is able to carry a surprising amount with a reasonable 342 litres of space.

Infiniti has upped its game inside with a system called InTouch, is a neat touchscreen system that works pretty well, although it's not the most intuitive system around. It looks good though with a high resolution display and a black gloss surround in the dash.

However, InTouch just highlights how dated the other screen is. For some reason, Infiniti has fitted two screens in the Q60, with the one at the top showing navigation. But it looks like it's from a 10-year-old Nissan and does nothing to make you think this is a cutting edge car.

Instead, the interior feels like a mish mash of old and new, with some bits of Nissan thrown in for good measure. Overall there appears to be a lack of cohesion in the layout.
