Exposed: Volvo's stunning S60

2009-09-09 10:07

A spy photographer snapped Volvo’s all-new S60 without any camouflage. The car was  caught during a photo shoot.

When Volvo's sleek S60 reaches the dealerships, it will – except for the so-called suicide doors – very closely resemble the stunning concept shown at the 2009 Detroit Motor Show.

With a coupe-like roofline, the all new S60 will add sex appeal to the once boxy and somewhat boring Volvo line-up. The S60 will eventually be offered with a high-efficiency petrol turbocharged direct injection 1.6-liter engine mated to a twin-clutch transmission.

In addition, Volvo has said to expect new technology – including a collision warning system with full auto braking and pedestrian detection.

We're guessing an official debut will take place sometime during the first quarter of 2010.
