9 Best 2017 All-Wheel Drive Coupes

2. 2017 Infiniti Q60 2.0t AWD Coupe

Base Price: $40,950

The 2017 Infiniti Q60 2.0t AWD Coupe is slightly larger than the BMW 230i xDrive Coupe. It has a longer wheelbase (that’s the distance between the front and rear wheels, which usually means more interior length), and is longer and wider overall. Fully redesigned for 2017, the Q60 2.0t AWD Coupe has a very striking, stylish, and seductive shape that may have you thinking Jaguar!

The Q60 2.0t AWD Coupe is powered by a 2.0-liter, 208-hp, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. While this is the least powerful engine in the group, there are other Q60 AWD Coupe models with 300 and even 400 horsepower available, should you want more. A 7-speed automatic transmission sends the power to all four wheels using Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Active Trace Control adjusts the Q60’s braking and engine torque to help enhance cornering feel.

Inside, you will find plenty of room for the driver and passenger in the 8-way powered front seats. Rear seat space is somewhat tight, especially for your legs. The dual-zone automatic temperature control system incorporates a microfilter to purify the cabin air. Two display touchscreens and voice recognition let you control audio, climate, and navigation functions.

The 2017 Infiniti Q60 2.0t AWD Coupe is an attractive car that will get you noticed. While it is not an all-out sports car, it will engage you on a back roads drive or a long-distance trip.
