As is the norm with all the new Volvo offerings, the S60 too will be offered only with a petrol engine option, and will come heavily packed with tech and safety features. Bookings for the new S60 will commence in January 2021
After almost a year long hiatus since the launch of the XC40, Volvo is about to bring in the S60 sedan to India. Bookings for Volvo’s entry-level sedan will begin in January, and car is expected to be launched in March 2021.
This third-generation S60 comes to India more than two years after its global unveiling. In the design department, the S60 looks inspired by its larger sibling – the S90. At the front, it has the signature rectangular Volvo grille with the Thor hammer DRLs and headlights on either side. The bumper is a bit more sharply cut making the S60 look a little sportier than the S90. With the exception of the length and a few other details, it is hard to tell the difference from the side. Around the back, the S60 has a neatly chiselled boot lid accompanied by double C-shaped LED taillights. The cabin of the S60, in typical Volvo fashion, is a very well appointed one. The steering wheel, the vertically stacked infotainment system, the gear lever and the use of materials in general is quite similar to other products from the brand. Volvo claims that special attention has been given to make the front seat thinner for increased rear leg room, but no compromises have been made with regards to front seat comfort. As you’d expect from Volvo, the S60 comes loaded with safety tech including adaptive cruise control, lane keeping aid, pilot assist, city safety and more.
Under the hood, the S60 will only be offered with a single petrol engine option. Just like in the XC40, this one too will make 187bhp and 300Nm from a 1,969cc four-cylinder turbocharged engine. When launched, the S60 will compete against the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE and the likes. Expect it to be launched in a single T4 Inscription variant, the S60 is likely to be priced around the Rs 45 lakh mark.
