The newest V60 is scheduled to make its public debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, its saloon version named S60 is going to wait until summer before it gets revealed to the market in South Carolina.
Similar to the new V60, S60 is also going to ride on the Scalable Product Architecture of the automaker which uses the same engines just like its sibling that is more family-oriented. It only means that the public can expect to see a 2.0-L diesel unit together with T6 and T5 petrol options.
The units like the T8 and T6 plug-in hybrids are specifically meant to target those buyers who are more eco-friendly. The latter is going to produce 590 Nm of torque and 340 PS while the former is good for 640 Nm and 390 PS in V60.
When it comes to styling, if the rear end will be ignored, the S60 and V60 should be noticeably identical. The rendering from Kleber Silva provides everyone some ideas of what people have to expect this summer. If Volvo does not ditch the muscular design elements, it’s what S60 must look like at lease from the front three-fourth angle.
In terms of the actual rear end, it’s a different story and most of you might be curious to see what kind of taillight design would be implemented. In this case, the light units are big and there is a bit room between them, which stands out as a sore thumb. Apart from that, it is a dynamic design.
As of now, there are no further details being offered except for the point that Volvo S60 will be mechanically and visually similar to the Volvo V60. The sedans, wagons, and SUVs of Volvo all have that look of a martyoshka-doll, yet it is a particular decision to provide premium quality in all parts in the market.
