    The modern Scandinavian design of the Volvo S60 boosts functionality with thoughtful attention to detail. Luxury demands that the driver be in control that is why the Volvo S60 has the intelligent Volvo Sensus. This infotainment system allows the driver to customize his car and entertainment settings through buttons on the steering wheel. The center console is angled towards the driver to ensure that he can still stay focused on the road while ergonomically designed seats make the driving experience more comfortable. To top that, materials inside a Volvo are all meticulously chosen and tested for allergens, making sure you and your loved ones are safe.

    The Volvo S60 also bagged the 2011 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and New Car Assessment Program (US-NCAP) 5-star rating for safety as well as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick. Thanks to the advanced preventive safety technologies such as the world-first City Safety, a rear-end collision avoidance and mitigation technology that is standard across all locally available variants of the Volvo S60.

Add to that is an array of advanced safety systems and technologies which will guarantee you and yours peace of mind.

Optimized engine management systems together with a range of technical modifications make the Volvo S60 D3 one of the most efficient engines in its class.

    There’s also the Volvo S60 1.6L T4 that features an agile engine with superior fuel efficiency. The direct fuel-injection technology reduces CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, while the turbocharger provides this relatively small engine with 180hp and 240Nm of torque to deal with any driving situation.
