You're reading this first on The Automotive India. Volvo Auto India has dropped an invite asking us to block our date in Mid-October for a ‘major’ announcement. However, no further details have been revealed so far but I predict that it could be regarding the refreshed versions of S60 and XC60 which are slated to debut around festive season as informed to The Automotive India by Tomas Ernberg during the New V40 Cross Country Launch Event in June. This thread will be updated as more details emerge. Stay tuned.

“Taking our philosophy of ‘Designed Around You’ a step further, we have the New Generation S60 & XC60 for our esteemed customers with changes designed around their comfort and need. We have focused on quality and attention to detail in order to give these dynamic models a major boost and sharpen their competitiveness. We have been listening very carefully to our customers to make improvements and ensure that we make these successful cars even more attractive.”

“Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed. This is evident in the redesigned interior and exterior of the new 60 cars. Inside, the attention to detail, the authentic materials – such as wood and leather – and the easy-to-use controls contribute to the in-command driving experience. Supportive yet comfortable seats that ensure a fresh and relaxed arrival after the longest of journeys have been Volvo’s strength for decades” - Tomas Ernberg, Managing Director, Volvo Auto India.
Key Enhancements in the New S60 and XC60
Sport Leather Seats: The new sport seat has great hugging side support all the way from the thighs to the shoulders, so the seat keeps the driver firmly in position when cornering fast. Nearly one hundred people of all shapes and sizes tested this seat, only followed by a really enthusiastic response. Also adjustments are made to the seat back, so it provides more legroom for passengers in the rear.

Gear Shift Paddles: The three-spoke steering wheels can now be accompanied by paddle shifters for cars specified with automatic transmission. They turn the automatic box into a manual with the benefit of gear shifting with both hands on the wheel. The paddle shifters give the enthusiastic driver an additional edge, particularly when powering round twisty roads. And for the added comfort of drivers in Sweden and other cold countries, the steering wheel can also be specified with heating for increased comfort on cold winter days.

Digital TFT Instrument Cluster with 3 Modes: Thin Film Transistor (TFT) is the latest technology user in monitors and televisions. You can choose from 3 graphic display themes “Elegance (Amberish), ECO (Greenish), and Performance (Sporty Reddish)”. The driving modes transform the interactive dashboard, monitor your driving, and assist you in maintaining optimization and not to mention the mood.

LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL): Together with wider grille and daylight running lights, they give 60 cars a striking, squat presence.

Dual Exhaust Tail Pipes, Integrated: The new integrated tailpipes, which can be specified with some engine variants, are the physical and visual link to the technically advanced engines. But it is not just about beautiful design: the designers have had to cope with the fact that at operating temperature, the tailpipes have to remain perfectly in place despite the exhaust system expanding in length by up to 25 mm. This is another example of true Scandinavian precision engineering.

Laser Assisted Automatic Braking - City safety: City Safety up to 50 km/hr – When the city throws its chaotic face, you’d be a step ahead and a lot safer. The latest version of City Safety prevents collisions up to 50 km/h. This laser based feature senses emergency situations beforehand and pre-charges the brakes to increase the impact of braking or even deploys the brakes if in case they aren’t timely applied.

The New Volvo S60 – Super Sporty!

The new dynamic S60 design with its purposeful, dynamic appearance accentuates the car’s sporting nature. Increased the S60’s road presence with a new front design. The more focused and determined-looking headlamps help create this new, expressive ‘face’. Emphasis was given to the S60’s horizontal lines at both the front and the rear. Together with details such as a wider grille and daylight running lights, give the S60 a striking, squat presence. The car has a beauty that is rooted in the natural world. The clean surfaces and contours give it a very Scandinavian feel. Available in 4 colours i.e. Passion Red, Vibrant Copper, Crystal White Pearl and Power Blue.

The New S60 is available with following wheels:-

Pandora, 215/50R 17W

YMIR, 235/40R 18Y

Titania, 235/40R 18Y

The New Volvo XC60 – A few Notches above

Volvo’s best-selling model, the XC60, takes on a more urban twist. The redesigned front features a new hood shape that emphasizes the wide, confident look. The new look has given away all- black trim so that it’s one body colour. The new headlamps look very focused and determined, and the horizontal lines on the grille with its chrome bars emphasize the car’s width.

The refined XC60 has a commanding driving position supported by generous ground clearance and the class-leading chassis. The XC60 is designed to feel every bit as nimble and agile as a standard height road car. Available in 8 colours i.e. Black Metallic, Electric Silver, Caspian Blue, Twilight Bronze, Flamenco Red Pearl, Crystal White Pearl, Bright Silver Metallic and Rich Java.

The New XC60 is available with following wheels:-

SEGIN, 235/65R 17 V

ZEPHYRUS, 235/60R 18 V
