Volvo S60 and V60 Pricing and Specifications Announced


 Plenty of style, value and safety tech for Volvo’s new luxury S60 and V60 twins 

Volvo Australia has announced pricing and specifications for its third generation S60 and second generation V60 models.

The sexy Swedish duo – even though the S60 will come from America – are designed to compete with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Lexus IS, Jaguar XE, BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 and will come with a raft of safety tech and Scando flair.

As per all Volvo models, the S60 and V60 will be offered in three trim levels: Momentum, Inscription and the sporty R-Design.

Standard equipment will include Volvo’s Pilot Assist Autonomous driving technology, the latest version of City Safety, Run-off Road Protection, rear cross traffic alert with automatic braking and a 360 degree parking system.

At launch, Volvo will offer two drivetrain choices: the 2.0 litre turbo petrol T5 which produces 187 kW and 350Nm and the T8 petrol/electric plug in hybrid, which makes for a combined 311kW and 680Nm.

Nick Connor, Managing Director of Volvo Car Australia, said: “Sedan and wagon vehicles have always been popular with Australian car buyers, and with the addition of our S60 and V60 vehicles we intend to reinvigorate those body styles. Our sedan and wagon vehicles are regarded as the most stylish in the world, with both vehicles recently nominated for the 2019 World Car of the Year Awards.”

“In such a competitive market you need to stand out from the crowd.” “We are confident that with their very distinctive look and competitive pricing the S60 and the V60 will make an immediate impact with buyers who are looking for something very different from the staid models in the luxury segment today.”

“S60 and V60 are the perfect cars for the Australian lifestyle and both perfectly complement our already award-winning SUV line-up.” “With the addition of these two vehicles our entire model line is now new and fresh.” “We have saved the best for last”.
