The bookings can be made from their website www.volvocars.in and the deliveries for the S60 sedans booked in January and February will commence from mid-March.
This is the first time that the company is taking bookings online only, as it recognizes the need to keep customers safe in the current times while giving them a hassle-free buying experience. The exclusive complimentary Volvo Tre Kronor Experience Program will entitle the new S60 owners a host of priority and personalized experiences such as a dedicated Volvo relationship manager, doorstep solutions for certain services, complimentary pick up and drop of cars for service-related needs, benefits for referring new customers and rewards for new purchases.

The new S60 is one of the safest sedans today and surely helps us save more lives. The new S60 is an exciting car and will attract people who like top-of-the-line luxury and safety features in their ride. As we open the bookings for S60, we want to make sure the customers remain safe while retaining the flexibility to book the car from anywhere. The online route achieves both these goals efficiently.”
The all-new Volvo S60 is built on Volvo’ own Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform. The all-new S60 has already scored a 5-star rating in Euro-NCAP crash tests. The new S60 shares safety technology and infotainment system with the top-of-the-line 90 Series cars and award-winning XC60, all of which have achieved industry-leading safety ratings. This makes the new S60 one of the safest cars on the road.
Volvo is known to make safe cars and the all-new S60 is no different. It gets features like City Safety with Steering Support, Adaptive Cruise Control, Pilot Assist, Oncoming Mitigation by Braking, Lane Keeping Aid, Driver Alert Control, Speed Alert, Brakes with Hill Start Assist.

The all-new Volvo is available in a single trim. It is available with a petrol engine only. The T4-inscription trim of S60 will be powered by a 2.0 litre, four cylinder, petrol engine that generates 190 Hp and 300 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and comes with different drive modes too (Comfort, Eco and Dynamic).
On the outside, S60 gets signature Thor’s hammer headlight, sporty grille with Volvo logo in the centre. The design is similar to other Volvo cars that we see in the market.
