Earlier this week, we took a drive down to the Palm Jumeirah. Not to check out the beautiful landscape or anything, we were there to see the new 2020 Volvo S60!
Built on Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture platform, the latest S60 features all the new-classic Volvo styling cues. With Volvo’s signature distinctive waterfall grille flanked by T-shaped ‘Thor’s Hammer’ LED headlight design, the S60 leaves a lasting impression.
“The new S60 is one of the most exciting Volvo cars around,” said Oscar Rivoli, Managing Director of Trading Enterprises. “It is a true driver’s car that brings acclaimed technology from the 90 series and the 60 series into this segment, making it one of the best sports sedans in the market.”
With the bold looks comes a long list of options, including Volvo Cars’ Sensus Connect infotainment system. Fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, drivers stay connected at all times.
All of this is controlled via a tablet-styled touch screen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment.
There’s safety, and then there’s Volvo S60 safety
On top of all the options, owners can add the optional Pilot Assist system. Supporting the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads at speeds of up to 130km/h.
The safety system has been updated for the 2020 Volvo S60 with the addition of improved cornering performance.
Also available is the Run-Off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering systems. The optional Cross Traffic Alert with auto brake further enhances safety for people inside and outside the car.
The latest S60 is available with two 2.0-litre turbocharged engines – T5 and T4 – both of which are connected to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The T5 produces 250 bhp and 350Nm of torque, while the T4 engine delivers 187 bhp 300 Nm of torque.
The 2020 Volvo S60 is available across all Trading Enterprises – Volvo showrooms starting at AED 159,900 for the T4 Inscription.
Stay tuned as we’ll be taking the S60 out for a spin soon!
