2019 Infiniti Q60 offers fast times at Bad-Tech High

Sure, there's 400 horsepower on tap, but boy howdy is the cabin tech bad.

One bad apple doesn't always ruin the whole bunch.

The 2019 Infiniti Q60 proves that, especially in its powerful Red Sport 400 spec.

There's a whole lot to like about this sleek little coupe.

Yet, while parts of it will have you signing up for social media just to shout its value into the ether, other parts will leave you wondering where your money went.

While many Q60 buyers are probably content to cruise around in fashion-forward normalcy with the car's base, 300-horsepower V6, I believe the Red Sport 400's power bump is integral to the experience.

Its twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine puts out a proper 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, and I dig it.

There's motive force no matter when you need it, pulling from a well of torque down low without much, if any turbo lag.

Its seven-speed automatic transmission does a commendable job keeping up with my right foot, but some hard shifts reveal a lack of polish that I find on most eight-speed cog-swappers.

With a little bit of elbow grease on the tech side, Infiniti could keep this car relevant for years to come.
