The Design of the 2011 Volvo S60
This is a car that manages to look classy and athletic at the same time; it is a confident looking car that is sure to get some admiring glances no matter where you go. If you liked the look of the of the previous Volvo S60 you will be impressed by the changes; if you weren’t impressed by the old S60 then you still might like the look of this car. The lines of this car are sleek and polished.
Under the Hood
As you would expect there are a number of choices when it comes to choice in engine. If you a lot of power under the hood then the 3.0 litre T6 should be enough to fill that particular yearning; 300 horse power is not to be sniffed at. If you want power but something a little less rich then you might settle for the 2.4 litre turbo charged diesel engine.
Inside the 2011 Volvo S60
The interior of the all new Volvo S60 manages to provide class as well as sophistication. Few cars offer the driver so much control. One of the most exciting aspects of the Volvo is the pedestrian detection device; handy if you tend to spend a lot of time driving on pavements. It is a great safety feature though and if someone walks in your path and you are going less than 21 miles per hour it will bring the car to full stop; if you are going faster than this then it will reduce your speed as quickly as possible. You can also expect an anti-skid system and of course plenty of air bags. When you touch the steering you are sure to be impressed by just how responsive it is. Everything inside the car is state of the art and if you love that type of thing then you are going to be happy as a pig in manure.
Some Final Thoughts
This all new Volvo S60 should be something worth waiting for if you are after a car that offers the latest technology in a stylish package. The Swedish makers seem to have judged the market just right and this next version of the S60 is sure to do well. The added new safety measures may greatly decrease the amount of fatal accidents involving pedestrians and this has to be a good thing.
