2013 Volvo S60: Bold new design

2013-02-21 08:22

BOLD NEW DESIGN: The 2013 Volvo S60 sports a new design as well as upgraded interior elements.

 

The new Volvo S60 sports a redesigned front which the Swedish automaker hopes will give it a more "purposeful, dynamic appearance".

PROUDLY SCANDINAVIAN


Fedde Talsma, Volvo's exterior design director, said: "We've really increased the S60's road presence with a new front design. The more focused and determined-looking headlights help create this new, expressive face.

"We've emphasised the S60's horizontal lines, front and rear. Together with details such as a wider grille, daylight running lights and a new LED unit on the tail lights, they give the S60 a striking, road-hugging presence.

"The car has a beauty that is rooted in the natural world. The clean surfaces and contours give it a very Scandinavian feel."

The interior benifits from new upholstery colours, wood inlays and the metal frames around the air vents and light controls.

Lena Jiseborn, Volvo's design director for colour and trim, said: "The overall effect is very warm and cosy, like being in a warm Swedish house on a cold night. The colour themes correspond beautifully with the backlit white controls in the dash and elsewhere in the car."

Customers have a choice of three chassis types - Dynamic, Four-C (Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept) and the R-Design Lowered sport chassis.
