It will arrive in SA next year although Volvo SA says it cannot yet confirm which models or even exactly when, but what is clear is that it will be yet another stunner.
"The new S60 is one of the most exciting cars we’ve ever made," said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. "It is a true driver’s car that gives us a strong position in the US and China sedan markets, creating growth opportunities for Volvo Cars."
It is also the first model that the brand will sell without a diesel variant in the range after Volvo promised to drop diesels. But it will slip in before the other promise that it will only introduce electrified vehicles from 2019, which means regular petrol internal combustion engines in the form of the T4 and T5 turbocharged motors.
Locally the company is also considering the super and turbocharged T6 as well as the plug-in hybrid T8.
The S60 sits on the Scalable Product Architecture platform that was first used in the latest XC90.
