Have You Seen The New Volvo S60?
Added: 15 June 2018
Volvo continue the renaissance of their mid-range cars with the new Volvo S60 expected to be unveiled next week after the Swedish manufacturer teased a flurry of social media posts over the last few days.
Not much has been revealed so far, however we thought we’d take you through what we know so far.
New Volvo S60 2018: What Can We Expect?
The teaser films have been cleverly depicted in such a way that they reveal a few clear details without giving away too much. From what we can gather the S60 will inherit the family front end of the recently revealed new V60 and XC60 meaning it will have the infamous Volvo ‘Thor’s Hammer’ headlights, menacing front grille and the big diagonal Volvo badge.
We don’t know much else for definite however we can safely assume it will be shorter than its older brother S90 saloon. A variation of the S90’s contentious C-shaped rear lights is likely to feature and the interior and cockpit is expected to be a direct transition from the new V60 estate which means it will have the large touchscreen display with digital dials.
New Volvo S60 2018: Engines and Performance
Confirmed last month, Volvo will be dropping the production of their diesel engines entirely on the new S60. A first for the brand and a statement to the rest of the automotive world having a model launch with only petrol and hybrid power. It can be presumed that the S60 will launch with T3, T4 and T5 petrol units with a T8 plug-in hybrid to sit at the top of the pack. Volvo are also launching the S60 with a Polestar edition that will use a tuned T8 engine that’s rumoured to have up to 400bhp.
New Volvo S60 2018: Prices and Specifications
With it still being quite a way from the S60’s release date Volo are yet to release prices and specifications. We can expect exact figures to be revealed closer to the launch date in 2019 but for now it’s a safe bet to assume that starting prices will marginally undercut the V60 at just under £30,000.
Watch this space for the full reveal on June 20th!
