Almost a year after the original concept version was unveiled; Volvo has today released the first official images of the all-new S60.
Promising to be sportier and more dynamic than any Volvo to date, the new S60 remains largely identical to the concept from which it was derived.
While details are still emerging, Volvo has so far confirmed that the S60 can be equipped with Pedestrian Detection - a groundbreaking safety feature that can detect pedestrians in front of the car and brake automatically if the driver does not react in time.
"The all-new Volvo S60 is sculpted to move you. It looks and drives like no other Volvo before and the car's technology will help you to be safer and more confident behind the wheel," says Stephen Odell, President and CEO of Volvo Cars.
The Volvo S60 will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year, with production due to begin in summer 2010 at the Volvo Cars plant in Ghent, Belgium.
"Customers in this segment want emotional appeal, sporty design and dynamic driving properties. The S60 has it all. We are convinced that it will be one of the strongest contenders around," says Stephen Odell.
Volvo Australia has confirmed that the S60 will arrive locally in the fourth quarter of 2010.
