petrol engine produces 306bhp and a massive 400Nm of torque. With
the 8-speed automatic gearbox the S60 T6 has a top speed of 230kmph and will do
0-10kmph in 5.6 seconds. The S60 also features 18-inch alloy wheels which
enhance the visual appeal of this car.The interiors of the car have been
finished with wood and leather giving it a sophisticated warm feel.
Tom von Bonsdorff, Managing Director,
Volvo Auto India said, "India is one of the fastest growing markets for
Volvo. An array of recent launches – XC90, V40 Cross Country Petrol, V40 and
now S60 T6 Petrol will add a positive thrust to the brand presence in India.
The Volvo S60 is a beautifully balanced combination of dynamism, style and
comfort. I look forward to further strengthening Volvo car’s presence here. We
are happy to bring the new Volvo Retail Experience with our new dealer in
Chennai. VAI is confident of expanding its market share and creating more
patrons for its brand.”
The car comes with an Adaptive Digital
Display which uses an active TFT (Thin Film Transistor) crystal display to
bring the driver personalised information in three different themes -- Elegance,
Eco and Performance. The S60 also has a feature IntelliSafe which is Volvo's
blanket name for all active safety systems. It also has the City Safety feature
which is active at speeds up to 50 kmph. City Safety automatically applies the
car’s brakes if the driver does not react in time when the car in front slows
down or stops - or if the S60 is approaching a stationary vehicle too fast.
The new Volvo S60 T6 Petrol will be
available in Volvo dealerships across the country starting July 3, 2015. With
the S60 T6 launch, Vovo has also opened a brand new dealership in Chennai
located on the Anna Salai Main Road, Teynampet under the name of Artemis Cars.
The dealership is spread over 4600sqft with what they call “a true Scandinavian
ambience” with a ‘Cool on the outside’ and ‘Warm on the inside’ feel.
