The all-new Volvo S60 comes to South Africa (probably) early in 2011 and Volvo Car SA has released details of its local lineup.
New Volvo sedan's local lineup
The executive sedan arrives in South Africa with three engine derivatives: T6, 2.0T and D5.
The flagship 3.0-litre inline six T6 produces has an output of 224 kW and 440 Nm while a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-litre will be the initial entry point into the range with 149 kW and 300 Nm on tap.
The 2.4-litre D5 engine kicks off the model’s diesel assault with power of 151 kW and 420 Nm of torque.
The S60 range will be expanded to include the 176 kW T5, and 132- and 110-kW versions of the 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine.
Along with new engines, a lot of the new car’s detail lies beneath the metal.
For example, two chassis options are offered with S60 with the sportier dynamic chassis (rather than the softer comfort chassis) standard on cars issued for the South African market.
All-new S60 will be shown for the first time at Geneva, but more detail pertaining to the local lineup – including prices – will be made available ahead of its launch here.
