New sedan Volvo S60 spied without camouflageMarch 9, 2018
The official premiere of the four-door sedan Volvo S60 of the new generation will take place this year.
Photo S60 without any disguise was made at the Volvo plant in Torsland and published by the local edition TeknikensVarld. The sedan is next to the XC60 crossover of the latest generation and a certain car covered with a cloth. It is assumed that the “hidden” model is the future electric car of the brand.
As expected, the feed of the new Volvo S60 is made in the style of the “senior” sedan Volvo S90. There is no front-end image, but earlier the head of the Swedish company posted in his Twitter photo a camouflaged test prototype “four-door” – in front of the model copies the newly introduced V60 wagon of the new generation.
The model S60 is built on a SPA platform with a transverse arrangement of the engine. Technique of a sedan, probably, will get from the “shed”. The range of Volvo V60 includes the usual petrol engines T5 and T6, D3 and D4 diesel engines, as well as two hybrid power units – the 340-horsepower T6 Twin Engine AWD and the 390-horsepower T8 Twin Engine AWD. The hybrid station wagon is equipped with an electric motor that rotates the rear wheels, and a battery with a capacity of 10.4 kWh. Gasoline engine in the modification of the T6 Twin Engine AWD produces 253 hp, in the version of the T8 Twin Engine AWD – 303 hp. All versions of the Volvo V60 are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, for diesel cars there is also a 6MKP.
The list of sedan equipment will be similar to the arsenal of other recent models of the brand: the automatic emergency braking system with the recognition of pedestrians, cyclists and large animals, the Pilot Assist system (partially takes on the functions of taxiing, acceleration and braking on the tracks), a warning technology for vehicles moving in the transverse direction, and so on.
Production of S60 will be adjusted at the new American Volvo plant. The public premiere of the four-door sedan will take place at the end of this summer.
