With the introductory price out, expect deliveries of the 2021 Volvo S60 to begin sometime in March 2021.
Rather silently, Volvo has opened its order books for the 2021 S60 and has also announced the sedan's introductory launch price of ₹45.90 lakh (ex-showroom). This price though will be applicable only for the first few customers who book the new S60 online. Expect the first set of cars to be delivered sometime near mid-March. It's also worth mentioning that the 2021 S60 has gone on sale as a CBU and, for now, is not being assembled in India.

For India, Volvo's brought the S60 in a single, fully-loaded trim – T4 Inscription. It's powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine (same unit as the XC40) that develops 188bhp and 300Nm of torque. An eight-speed automatic gearbox sends power to the front wheels only. You can read more about the drive dynamics of the 2021 Volvo S60 here, or simply watch the video review below.
In the T4 Inscription guise, the Volvo S60's standard kit includes features like a 9.0-inch Sensus touchscreen infotainment system that offers both Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, as well as a Harman Kardon sound system. Some more premium offerings come in the form of wireless phone charging, four-zone climate control, a reverse assist camera and a panoramic sunroof. Of course, being a Volvo, the 2021 S60 also comes with a big suite of safety features.
Since the S60 is available in a single variant, it makes the pricing of the car an interesting topic of debate. While rivals like the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 remain more affordable due to multiple variants that offer lower entry-level prices, the S60 trumps the lot when it comes to the pricing of the top-spec versions – it's cheaper than all its rivals in this particular case.
