In the Heico Sportiv “angered” Volvo V60August 20, 2018
German tuning studio worked on a compact Swedish Volvo V60.
The design of the Volvo brand, debuted on the flagship crossover XC90, looks modern and very impressive, gathering a lot of rave reviews from consumers. But, with experienced tuners, and this is Heico Sportiv, there are their secrets and developments, how to add attraction to the car and improve it in technical terms. This statement received proof in the latest project of the company, based on the Volvo V60.
Heico specialists performed a number of upgrades, dealing with both the technical stuffing and the exterior of the car. First of all, we mention the increase in power – with the help of chip tuning in the studio increased the power of the diesel D4 from 190 hp and 400 Nm of torque to 220 hp and 480 Nm, and the petrol T6 with 310 hp and 400 Nm – up to 340 hp. and 470 Nm. Also in the near future will be available a new intercooler and sports air filter.
The sports character of the “charged” station wagon Volvo V60 is designed to be evidenced by a four-barrel exhaust system with oval chrome-plated nipples measuring 120×74 mm and Heico Sportiv logos. And a set of proprietary lightweight 21-inch wheels in combination with track wideners (20 or 30 mm), shod in Continental tires or Pirelli tires with dimensions of 255 / 30R21. As an option, 19- or 20-inch disks are also available. The wheels look even more impressive, thanks to an underestimation of the suspension by 30 mm with the help of sports springs.
In the cabin, the only change was the special aluminum handles for controlling the ventilating deflectors with laser engraving Heico Sportiv.
By the way, Volvo V60 is well sold in the European market, for example, last year the owners of this car were 37 951 people, and for the first six months of this year the sales of the station wagon was 22 806 units.
