2017 Infiniti Q60 Release Date, Review and Specs

The new 2017 Infiniti Q60 made its world premiere during the 2016 North American International Auto Show. It perfectly balances exhilarating performance and dynamics with expressive design elements to make it a stand out car in the premium sports coupe segment. Infiniti hopes the Q60 will continue to satisfy buyers also due to the handsome style, updated safety and personal technologies, and the fuel-efficient engines it offers. Rumors allege its release date has been set for the 2017 spring.

The exterior is bold, wider, and lower than its previous iterations. Furthermore, it expresses its powerful elegance via its taut, muscular lines, and daring proportions. Add this to the new digital suspension, adaptive steering, and an all-new lightweight and sophisticated 3.0L V6 twin-turbocharged engine and you’ve got yourself a premium sports car. With the new 2017 Infiniti Q60, not only will you get an outstanding output rated to up to 400 horsepower, but it also offers high levels of efficiency.

“Thanks to the next-gen handling and ride technologies and an exhilarating output of up to 400 horsepower, the new 2017 Infiniti Q60 conveys a powerful stance through power and designs. With all these features intact, the new model is in no doubt poised to take the premium sports coupe class leadership, said President of Infiniti – Roland Krueger.

2017 Infiniti Q60 Release Date & Price

With the MSRP pricing slotting between $40 and $50k, the new model finds itself in a collision course with well-rounded rivals such as the 2017 BMW 4 Series, and the 2017 Audi A5. The Audi A5 comes with cutting-edge personal technology, while the BMW 4 Series boasts of near-perfect balance and aggressive looks. I’d say there’s not a bad one in the bunch.

When it comes to the Infiniti Q60 release date, rumors allege it should be expected sometime in mid-2017.

As you can see from the images, the new model gets an elegant, powerful, and daring new design. Although the design has changed a bit from that of the existing model, signature Infiniti design cues are quite evident. The stylish cues communicate the performance potential of the Q60 coupe. Unlike most production models that veer off from the concept’s design, that of the Q60 remains faithfully intact. Signature design cues include unique deep-body stamping, double arch grille, LED headlights, and striking exterior silhouette.

The dimensions have increased, and so has the interior legroom. The new model also gets better driving dynamics thanks in part to the lower center of gravity, and greater stability and in-control driving potential. In fact, Q60’s drag coefficient is only 0.28 therefore implying the coupe has high levels of aerodynamic efficiency.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT Release Date, News and Rumors

While the 2017 Hyundai Elantra has already been unveiled, the 2017 Elantra GT is still work in progress. Test mules have been spotted undergoing testing in Europe and according to the images our keen spy photographers took, it bears quite a close resemblance with the upmarket Genesis G90. The 2017 Elantra GT review below is based on spy photos and our own rendering that we’ve put together after collecting and collating crucial data from sources in the know. Information on its possible release date is also covered.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT exterior, side view, alloy wheels

While we saw it worthwhile to conclude that the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT will be offered for the 2017 model year, it might after all be offered for the 2018 model year especially considering that the much-awaited 2017 Hyundai Elantra has already debuted this year. But whether or not the new model is offered for 2017 or 2018, the same changes Hyundai plans to offer will remain as the common denominator. Talking of changes, the new Elantra GT is set to come with clean and refined surfaces, slim and sporty headlights, and a large hexagonal grille.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT rear view, silver color, taillights and badges

Both the exterior and interior offer stylish designs. The interior is inspired by the high standards if the entire Hyundai lineup. Some of the standard features available include Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, automatic headlights, ventilated front seats, steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, LED taillights, cooled glove box, leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, dual automatic temperature control, and a blind-spot monitor. High-tech safety features are also available to match the new-look interior and exterior facets. Some of the active and passive technologies include an Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist, Daytime running lights, seven airbags, vehicle stability management, and lane-departure intervention.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT auto show, front view, headlights and grille

With all these features intact, it’d be prudent to assume the 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback will arguably be among the top compact cars once available for sale. Furthermore, American consumers, and others by extension, have come to their realization that five passenger cars offer more usable cargo space than their sedan counterparts. Whereas it’s a sister sibling to the Elantra sedan, you might be surprised to learn that the 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT is based on Hyundai’s Europe-spec i30 hatchback. It offers a better built cabin and appointments, is more spacious, and offers a sporty driving demeanor.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT spy shots

Although there’s plenty to recommend about the 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT to anyone shopping for a compact hatchback, the compact marketplace is thick with talent. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf offers an exceptional handling and ride quality. The 2017 Mazda 3 is another perennial leader in this class, offering a long list of available premium features, excellent real-world fuel economy ratings, and athletic handling. Others worth your while include the Kia Forte and the Ford Focus.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT Release Date & Price

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT release date

Pricing for the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT is still shrouded in mystery, as Hyundai has kept these details in the dark. But due to the lack of any substantial refresh, it is unlikely the price tag will balloon significantly over and above the existing price of $18,800. You can download the existing model’s owner’s manual from online Hyundai platforms.

Its release date has been set for mid-2017.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT Exterior Review

Dimensions remain intact: width – 70.1 inches, height – 57.9 inches, and length – 169.3 inches.

Known for its ‘Fluidic Sculpture’, Hyundai continues to offer the Elantra GT with defining and distinctive aerodynamic, progressive exterior profile. Designers were able to achieve a lower wind resistance thanks to the minimized tire gaps and streamlined rocker panels. The result is improved efficiency, and a smoother and quieter ride quality.

The interior is a demonstration of just how Hyundai engineering can be optimized to generate superior interior volume in spite of the pintsize dimensions. Details about the kind of convenience, entertainment, and infotainment systems offered should be expected on its release date.

New 2017 Buick Enclave Release Date, Specs & Info

The Buick Enclave will once again grace our dealerships sometime in mid-2017 probably as 2018 Buick Enclave. This information is however regarded a secret by Buick for now. What we do know is the new Enclave will feature several redesigns regardless of whether it will be offered as a 2017 or 2018 year model. Highlights to expect from the expected model include a smooth and quiet ride quality, top safety scores, an eight-passenger seating capacity, a generous cargo capacity, and a luxurious cabin. As mentioned above, its release date should be expected probably in mid-2017. 

2017 Buick Enclave black color, exterior

The Buick Enclave 2017 is a large SUV that offers a seating capacity for up to eight occupants. Besides the copious accommodation, it also comes with a generous cargo space, and numerous standard features for the money. And guess what, you get all of that without forking out a premium price.

2017 Buick Enclave tailpipe and taillights

Families looking for factors such as fuel economy, top safety scores, versatility, and technologies have tons of SUVs to comb through. However, finding a crossover SUV that offers all of the above for a bargain price is a rarity. The 2017 Buick Enclave is perhaps one among a handful of such vehicles that can offer everything you’d want in a large three-row crossover without making you break the bank or dip into your children’s college fund.

2017 Buick Enclave frontview, grille and headlights

The Buick Enclave 2017, although mechanically similar to Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia 2017, is its own man when it comes to ride serenity, and dignified styling. It pours itself to the road effortlessly soaking up bumps and mundane road conditions to offer an impressive ride quality akin to that of a proper land yacht.

2017 Buick Enclave rear view, taillights and tailpipe

In stark contrast to most third-row benches that are more often than not cramped, the Enclave takes pride in its spacious third-row bench. Even so, the cargo volume isn’t compromised and offers a reasonable 23.3 cu. ft. of space. Some few idiosyncrasies do exist however despite a seemingly illustrious review. Maneuvering in tight spaces is a hustle considering its massive size. The climate and infotainment controls are rather dated by conventional methods, and the interior quality leaves more to be desired.

2017 Buick Enclave side angle , alloy wheels

Alternatives you can consider include the “A” rated 2017 Toyota Highlander, Acura MDX, Ford Explorer 2017, and the 2017 Dodge Durango. The Toyota Highlander 2017 price starts from around $30,000. Value is offered in terms of interior refinement, a functional cabin design, a smooth and strong V6 engine, whisper-quiet ride quality, and a seating capacity for up to eight people. The 2017 Toyota Highlander release date should be expected sometime before this fall, at least according to recent media reports.

2017 Buick Enclave white color

Another solid pick is the 2017 Acura MDX. Specs include a starting price of $43,000, generous standard features, excellent crash-test scores, confident acceleration, adept handling, quiet cabin, and impressive fuel economy. The Acura MDX 2017 release date should be expected this fall.

2017 Honda Jazz Release Date and Specs

While both the 2017 Honda Jazz release date and price are still speculative at the moment, rumors are rife that the new model is set to get a raft of new changes on its technologies front. It is expected to feature a bold yet sophisticated interior and exterior design, with unrivaled interior versatility and space. For 2017, buyers are set to enjoy increased advanced infotainment and infotainment technologies, and refinement. A dynamic and efficient driving experience is also among the list of new changes to expect.

2017 Honda Jazz front view, grille and headlights

For starters, the vehicle under review has long bridged the gap between mini MPVs and small cars. One of the major highlights that define the Honda Jazz 2017 include its best-in-class practicality and space. Matters regarding the performance remain unaltered for the new model year, as the pint-size Jazz will still retain the 1.3L petrol engine. Problem is: the available Continuous Variable Transmission system revs so high that it becomes unrefined and so is best avoided. The manual transmission is the best option here. Only go for the former if you must have it.

2017 Honda Jazz rear view, tailpipe and taillights

New changes on the new model offer the model a distinctive contemporary styling including strong lines and a powerful new face, while still retaining its immediate predecessor’s classic Jazz silhouette. One interesting thing that makes the Jazz special is the immense interior space that it offers inside despite the meagre dimensions on the exterior that one might be quick to dismiss off. Just like the Honda Fit – U.S spec model – the Jazz features the Magic Seats, which ensure the model gets class-leading space and unrivaled versatility, with a range of configurations for passenger and cargo carrying.
