It's finally happening after a long wait and the Swedish carmaker, Volvo, is all set to bring the third-generation of S60 in India and its launch is set for November 27. Yes, in less than a week, the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class, Jaguar XE and Audi A6 rival will be unveiled in Indian shores.
Before we go any further and bring you the launch details of the Volvo S60 in India, make sure you are a member of our exclusive 91Wheels Telegram Group where we share the latest information about the Indian Automotive Industry.
The initial launch was supposed to be in 2020 itself but the COVID-19 situation pushed the launch to the first quarter of 2021 now. However, the good news is that the luxury sedan will be unveiled on November 27 and that may give the potential buyers as to what it gets.
Sharing our deeds on the design then it retains the signature Thor hammer LED Daytime Running Light along with a chiselled front grille. It also gets an angular front bumper with neat fog light housing in it. Overall, the front looks sleeker now and looks ready to rival the competition.
At the rear, it draws inspiration from the elder sibling, S90 in terms of taillights design. The C-Shaped design looks good and to even out the approach, the rear bumper now projects a muscular design. It will come with 19-inch alloy wheels.
Under the hood, the new S60 will continue the 2.0-litre-inline turbocharged petrol engine which generates 310 bhp with a peak torque of 400 Nm. This is the T8 engine and we expect it to be offered with the T4 engine. The latter is the same found in the baby Volvo which is the XC40. This unit is 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol which makes 187 bhp at 5000 RPM with a peak torque of 300 Nm at 1300 RPM. This engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
