  • Volvo S60 Turbodiesel now available

    2/1/2012

    Volvo Philippines proudly introduces the S60 D3 Turbodiesel - a powerhouse that drives you to push the limits without worrying about fuel costs. Low emissions, 400Nm of torque, and quick, sure power ensures immense driving pleasure while you enjoy fuel efficiency of up to 22Km per liter. The single turbocharged engine will infuse your drive with the composed feeling of being in control in all situations without compromising on the fun of driving.

    Aside from the standard City Safety feature, the S60 also features a pedestrian avoidance technology that uses a digital camera and radar to constantly scan the road ahead and warns you when it identifies shapes as people who are at risk in front of your car. More importantly, the system will employ full brake force to stop your vehicle – if you don’t react in time. Volvo calls this Collision Warning with Full-Auto Break and Pedestrian Detection, but you can simply call it another Volvo world-first.

    Excellent road handling is also achieved with the enhanced Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) system. Along with the Advanced Stability Control (ASC) and Corner Traction Control (CTC), DTSC help prevent fishtails and spinouts. ASC monitors the car's behavior with high precision to further enhance stability in sharp curves and with rapid lateral movements. CTC by torque vectoring also helps the car pivot around bends with more grace by braking the inner wheel and redistributing engine torque to the outside wheel. It also improves acceleration when turning onto a road with faster traffic. Active Bending Lights with Dual Xenon technology also expand your vision range by 230% when driving in the dark and provides considerably improved illumination around bends at night.

    Driving the dynamic S60 makes your heart race with exhilaration and is further pumped up by interior systems that make you a focused – and therefore, better – driver. Volvo's new driver-control interface called Volvo Sensus, allow you to conveniently explore the hi-tech features of your car and personalize them to suit your needs. All information is displayed on a high-resolution 5" or 7" color screen, which can also display the phone, park assist camera, DVD, digital TV, among others. Everything is conveniently controlled using the ergonomic steering wheel controls -- so you can keep your attention on the traffic and your hands on the steering wheel. Above the crisp sound reproduction of the High Performance audio components, the S60’s High Performance Multimedia System’s audio level provides a full 7" integrated Multimedia color screen. This transforms your Volvo to a complete platform for the latest in in-car entertainment, communication and navigation technology. For example, you can watch DVD films or terrestrial TV broadcasts when the car is stationary. Bluetooth® and USB/iPod® connectivity further adds to the versatility of this system.

    Locally available in four different engine variants, the one you choose will define a major part of the experience ahead. Some engines favor high performance while other favor high mileage, but all of these petrol and diesel engines deliver instant power and smooth running while state-of-the-art technology makes the most of every micro-drop of fuel.
