The Volvo S60 is being further refined, with the sights firmly set on sharpening the sedan model’s already sporty profile. We’re making the S60 even sportier in every respect,” says Gerry Keaney, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service “We’ve both spiced up the design and fine-tuned the chassis to create a car with even greater driving appeal.
The Volvo S60 combines excellent performance and a great shape with outstanding safety features. It feels like a tight European sedan and does a good job of smoothing out rough roads. The S60 fills the middle range in Volvo’s lineup: It’s larger than the S40, but not quite as large as the premium-luxury S80. Its interior is handsome and the available leather has a high-quality look and feel. Notable improvements for ’06 include a revised all-wheel-drive system for better performance, newly designed wheels and simplification of the options and packages.
Volvo’s S60 is an all-new mid-size model that brings the Swedish firm’s safety legacy and standards to consumers for whom the S40 is too small and the S80 too big. Not surprisingly, it also fits between those models in price — starting at $26,500 but running to about $35,000 for a full prom dress edition.
