that fun­da­men­tal con­nec­tion be­tween driver and road with its syn­the­sised feed­back resistance (like in a video game) rather than ac­tual steer­ing load.

Ul­ti­mately, it felt more un­nat­u­ral than real and left us as­sum­ing as to what the wheels were do­ing some­thing that might not bode too well for the purists.

Switch­ing back to Nor­mal mode might have driv­ers hav­ing less of that un­nat­u­ral feed­back, but it was in­her­ently still pro­nouned. While a touch of sup­ple­ness re­turned to the sus­pen­sion the en­gine now felt anaemic.

Luck­ily for Per­sonal mode, it al­lowed us to tai­lor the ex­pe­ri­ence so that the en­gine re­mained re­spon­sive in Sport mode, while we set the sus­pen­sion to a more com­pli­ant Nor­mal mode.

This pro­vided a touch more sup­ple­ness when rolling over bumps as we cruised along at lower speeds to­wards the con­clu­sion of our drive.

To sum up the Q60, this might not be a coupe to attract the purists who pre­fer a more vis­ceral be­hviour from their coupe.

Rather, it’s more for those who seek to stand out from the crowd and oc­cas­sion­ally en­joy that rare burst of per­for­mance that this stylish coupe has to of­fer.

It might look tight at first, but it’s very much us­able, es­pe­cially at the rear. Ana­logue and dig­i­tal com­bi­na­tion in­stru­ment clus­ter. Leather-wrapped gear-shifter.
