On the EPA test cycle the F-Type RWD Auto gets better fuel mileage than the Q60 Coupe 3.0t RWD (20 city/28 hwy vs. 19 city/28 hwy).

Regardless of its engine, the F-Type’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) Infiniti only offers an automatic engine start/stop system on the Q60 Coupe 2.0t.

The F-Type offers optional heat-treated ceramic brake rotors, which last ten to twenty times as long as conventional cast iron rotors, don’t rust, don’t fade during repeated high speed braking, and their lighter weight contribute to better braking, handling and acceleration. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer ceramic brake rotors.

The F-Type stops much shorter than the Q60 Coupe:

For better traction, the F-Type’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Q60 Coupe (275/40R19 vs. 245/40R19).

The F-Type’s optional 255/35R20 front and 295/30R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Q60 Coupe’s optional 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Type offers optional 20-inch wheels. The Q60 Coupe’s largest wheels are only 19-inches.

The F-Type’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the F-Type is 1.3 inches wider in the front and 2.2 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the Q60 Coupe.

The F-Type R Coupe handles at 1.00 G’s, while the Q60 Coupe Red Sport 400 AWD pulls only .88 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the F-Type’s turning circle is 1.7 feet tighter than the Q60 Coupe’s (35 feet vs. 36.7 feet). The F-Type’s turning circle is 3.1 feet tighter than the Q60 Coupe AWD’s (35 feet vs. 38.1 feet).

The Jaguar F-Type may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 200 to 250 pounds less than the Infiniti Q60 Coupe.

The F-Type is 8.4 inches shorter than the Q60 Coupe, making the F-Type easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The F-Type Coupe has a much larger trunk than the Q60 Coupe (11 vs. 8.7 cubic feet).

To make loading and unloading groceries and cargo easier, especially for short adults, the F-Type Coupe offers an optional power trunk, which opens and closes automatically by pressing a button. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer a power trunk.

Unlike the driver-only memory system optional in the Q60 Coupe, the F-Type offers an optional driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The F-Type’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Q60 Coupe’s standard intermittent wipers change speed with vehicle speed, but can’t turn on and off or change speed based on changing rainfall.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The F-Type has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The F-Type was chosen as one of Automobile Magazine’s “All Stars” in 2014. The Q60 Coupe has never been an “All Star.”

The Jaguar F-Type outsold the Infiniti Q40/Q60 by 83% during the 2016 model year.
