The new Volvo S60 is available to take for a test drive today at your local Taggarts Volvo dealerships in Motherwell and Glasgow.
The Volvo S60 offers something for all motorists, with no fewer than 18 versions for the discerning driver to choose from. The most affordable is the T4 Business Edition, while at the top of the range is the D4 R-Design Lux Nav.
Whatever the model selected, the Volvo S60 is hailed as being both spacious and comfortable and is reasonably priced; the keenest priced diesel powered S60 being the D2 Business Edition.
Meanwhile, some versions of S60 have been given the R-Design treatment, labelled as a 'sporty factory-fitted option package.'
The R-Design and R-Design Lux boast a range of superior interior and exterior features. Among these are R-Design sports steering wheel, 18" Ixion III Alloy Wheels (Diamond Cut/Matt Black) with 235/40 Tyres, Lowered Sports Chassis, Keyless Drive with Personal Car Communicator and Active Bending Xenon Headlights.
The T4 petrol engine has been boosted to 190 hp , along with the D4 diesel. In addition, the D3 has seen benefits in performance through its finely tuned turbocharger.
Both the T4, D2 and D3 in the latest Volvo S60 models are available with six-speed manual transmission or eight-speed D4 automatic transmission.
The improved fuel efficiency in the S60 is exemplified by the Volvo S60 D2. Consumption is now 4.3 litres per 100 km (Urban) with manual transmission and 4.8 litres per 100 km (Urban) for the automatic transmission version.
The corresponding CO2 emission figures are 99g/km and 110g/km.
The Volvo S60 has embraced technology that makes driving even safer. 'City Safety' is embraced at avoiding collisions, especially in congested urban environments. This system features lasers, which automatically applies the brakes when a collision is imminent.
Other safety features in the S60 include child safety door locks, power door locks, pedestrian & cyclist detection and Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert.
