Quick question! Do you have a vision board? I do, and testing out the super SLEEK and super BADA&& 2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe
is was totally front and center.
I was actually able to take it for a mini test a few months ago in Portland, Oregon, at the 2017 Heels and Wheels event. Don’t get me wrong, I ENJOYED the mini test to the fullest, but the vehicle is so SPECTACULAR that it left me craving so much more! Well guess what, last week after having it for a full week, I was so proud when I walked over to my board and crossed off, Test drive the 2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupe.
Keep reading to check out a few things that impressed me MOST about this vehicle…
Bold and Beautiful
The attention this vehicle received was insane! There were times when people came running across the parking lot just to tell me that they think it’s stunning. There were several others that loved the color and wanted to know all about the specs, and like always I keep the fact sheet on me for these types of situations. 🙂
So just a quick note to all the fashionable ladies out there..trust me when I tell you that this is not the vehicle you throw a cap on to run errands. You definitely want to make sure your lip gloss is poppin and run a comb through your locks before heading out, because pretty much everyone is watching.
Fast and Fierce
OK! So it is not only insanely fierce, but it is insanely fast. When I merged onto I-95 for the first time and hit the gas, it went 0-60 in a matter of seconds and all I could do was think, “Oh my! Now this is what I am talking about!” It is SUPER FAST and before you know it you are at 80! All I have to say is the power in the 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo, 400 HP Engine is EVERYTHING! #OhWhatAFeeling!
As stated in a previous post, I am not an extremist when it comes to testing the limits of a vehicle, but I do like to see how well it handles and this totally passed my test on ALL levels! To be honest, I had to check myself a few times with this baby, because OMG…What a beast!
Comfortable and Hi-Tech Cabin
The lack of good music, comfy seats and leg room are deal breakers for me when it comes to purchasing a vehicle, and this one totally fit the bill in more ways than one. The 8-way power sport type front seats are extremely comfortable and made it easy for me to relax when driving long distances. I couldn’t help but notice that the headrest felt a lot like plush pillows beneath my head. I love cranking up the sounds and just leaning my head against the headrests while on my nightly cruises along the beach. It was a totally epic experience to say the least.
Additionally, I fell in love with all of the Hi-Tech cabin features, like the Infiniti Drive Mode Selector, which allows the driver to choose between Standard, Sport, Sport +, Snow, Eco or Personal mode and the InTouchTM Navigation with voice guidance, Lane Guidance and 3D building graphics.
Auto Dim Rear View Mirror with Compass
I am a true fan of the Auto Dimming Rearview Mirror feature. I love that it helps to automatically reduce the glare of headlights from vehicles behind you and that it features a convenient digital compass. It also allows me to know the overall direction that I am going without having to google it or figure it out.
