New Volvo S60 prices announced

The Volvo S60 arrives in showrooms in July and is available to order now

Prices have been announced for the all new Volvo S60. The Volvo S60 arrives in showrooms in July and is available to order now. Prices range from £23,295 for the Volvo S60 D3 ES up to £36,745 for the top of the range Volvo S60 T6 AWD SE LuxGeartronic Premium.

The all-new Volvo S60 is a four-door coupé, it is sportier and more distinct than any previous Volvo and it promises excellent driving dynamics in its design. There is a choice of two diesels and one petrol engine. The newly developed five-cylinder 2.0-litre D3 engine produces 163hp and 400Nm of torque. With a manual gearbox, fuel consumption is up to 54.3mpg (EU Combined, preliminary figure). The now-familiar twin-turbo D5 powerplant produces 205hp and 420Nm of torque and accelerates from 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds. The Volvo S60 D5 engine delivers fuel consumption of 53.3mpg (EU Combined).

The all-new Volvo S60 features the ground-breaking Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake system. Pedestrian Detection consists of a newly developed radar unit integrated into the car’s grille, a camera fitted in front of the interior rear-view mirror, and a central control unit. The radar’s task is to detect any object in front of the car and to determine the distance to it. The camera's role is to determine what type of object it is. The full auto brake part of the technology also responds to vehicles in front of the Volvo S60 that are at a standstill or moving in the same direction.
