The all-new Volvo
S60 makes its international debut at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday 2
March 2010. It launches into one of the automotive world's most
competitive segments backed by an elegant new coupé-like design, dynamic
driving characteristics and ground-breaking Pedestrian Detection safety
In its overall
shape, the all-new S60 is a coupé; sportier and more distinct than any
previous Volvo. In its design, it promises excellent driving
characteristics, even before you get behind the wheel. To deliver the
highest levels of driving enjoyment, the chassis team have refined every
single detail that influences a car’s driving properties and fine-tuned
the driving experience to offer the most dynamic ride ever seen before
on a Volvo.
The all-new S60
range will be available from launch with a choice of two diesels and one
petrol engine, including an uprated high-performance 3.0-litre T6 petrol
version with 304bhp, a 2.4-litre 205bhp D5 and a 2.0-litre 163bhp D3
powerplant. A DRIVe version powered by a 1.6-litre diesel engine with CO2
emissions of approximately 115g/km and fuel economy of up to 65.7mpg
(combined cycle, preliminary figure) will join the range later in 2011.
During the first year of production a DRIVe version of the all-new S60
will be introduced, featuring a new 1.6-litre diesel engine. Fuel
consumption will be an impressive 65.7mpg (EU Combined, preliminary
figure), corresponding to CO2 emissions approximately below
115 g/km. The uprated engine produces 115 hp and 270 Nm of torque, and
will only be available with a six-speed manual gearbox.
Later during the
first year of production, the all-new S60 will also become available
with a 2.0 GTDi variant (T5) producing 240 hp and torque of 320 Nm.
Furthermore, there will be a 1.6-litre GTDi engine available in two
versions: 180 hp (T4) and 150 hp (T3) with torque of 240 Nm.
All the GTDi
engines will be available in combination with Volvo’s optional automatic
six-speed Powershift transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox as
standard. The Powershift concept works like two parallel manual
gearboxes with separate clutches, giving quick and fuel-saving
information on these engines will be communicated at a later date.
