Volvo S60 – Bigger Drive with Better Performance

21.09.2016 г.

Volvo S60

This 2016, Volvo S60 has got two brand new models, with the first one being the 2016 S60 Cross Country. This is the off road version of S60 sedan that has AWD or all wheel drive, raised ride height and fender flares that look tough. The second one is the luxurious looking 2016 S60 Inscription that doesn’t just lay on thick luxury layer but also gets around 3 inches of extra legroom. It is certainly great news since the Volvo S60 has already been established to be a solid luxury car, not to mention that it is almost pretty much like a bargain with its affordable starting price. With its 2 powerful 4-cyliner engines and the available 6-cylinder engine and all wheel drive, the family of Volvo S60 is no doubt a very strong alternative to the famous luxury sedans.

What Meets the Eye

Things could have gone badly if the standard S60 is lengthened but you would be surprised to know that the S60 Inscription manages to look quite nice, especially with the nicely proportioned rear doors and elongated roofline. On the other hand, the S60 Cross Country is no doubt more peculiar looking. It is not common to see sedans that are high rising but Volvo states that they see a market and the addition of the fender extensions and ride height is remarkably eye catching. All models under the Volvo S60 series get a front end that has several LEDs for different lighting functions. Its sloping rear end boasts of the present fashionable 4 door coupe profile although his also betrays a tinier trunk.

A Look Inside

Bigger is always better as far as the latest 2016 S60 Inscription is concerned as well as its expanded rear seat. With almost 3 inches of extra legroom, this sedan goes from being cramped to comfortable for the rear seaters that allow them to appreciate other parts of the finely crafted interior. You will also love the exceptionally supportive and comfortable driver’s seat, with the instrumentation calling for logical operation and is very easy to see even though the single knob controller for the car’s infotainment system is not really that intuitive. Throughout the range, the crisp and clear quality of the audio system is made better by the MultEQ technology of Audyssey Laboratories.

Driving Impressions

The most notable advance in driving Volvo S60 came the previous year when they debuted their all new Drive E family with 4 cylinder engines. Added to the front wheel drive T6 and T5 models, the latest engines are packing a punch, with T6 getting from standstill to freeway-friendly 60 miles per hour in a matter of 5.6 seconds. When you choose the all wheel drive, you will get older engines although there is no reason for you to skip over these if you are living in a place where AWD is a must. No matter what you choose, you can look forward to conducting business from one of the most comfortable driver’s seats ever seen combined with a refined and quiet interior.
