Hong Kong – INFINITI has won the prestigious iF Design Award for the Q60 – a sports coupe that combines expressive design with exhilarating performance and dynamics.
The iF Design Award is one of the most important cross-industry product design prizes, with a jury made up of 58 independent design experts from around the world, representing a broad range of sectors. Submissions are judged on innovation, functionality and ergonomics, aesthetics and the sustainability of its production process and product attributes.
Awarded in iF Design’s ‘Automobile’ category, the Q60’s powerful and bold design expresses a powerful elegance that is distinctively INFINITI. Complementing its design, the D-segment sports coupe’s exhilarating performance is underpinned by its all-new 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine. Dynamic enhancements, including second-generation adaptive steering and an all-new digital suspension, result in a sports coupe that is designed and engineered to perform.
This is INFINITI’s second iF Design Award in a row, following a ‘Professional Concept’ product design award from iF for the Q80 Inspiration fastback sedan concept car in 2016.
