Volvo Cars is very much responsible for the manufacture and production of the Volvo S60. Aside from that, Volvo Cars also is the responsible for everything and anything that has got to do with the Volvo S60 before even the vehicle has been brought for production. Starting from the year 2000, the Volvo S60 has been continuously manufactured. It took the spot and niche left vacant by the Volvo S70 in the line up for vehicle models from Volvo. It has been designed and crafted as a midsize car.
The Volvo S60 has been made available in one body style only which is a sedan that holds four doors. This vehicle has been built on the FF AWD D3 platform. This same platform is shared by the sedan with its relatives like the Volvo V70, the Volvo S80, and the Volvo XC 90. Competition that this vehicle has in the automobile market include the Acura TL, the Audi A4, the BMW 3 series, the Infiniti G35, the Jaguar X type, the Lexus ES, the Mercedes Benz C Class, the Saab 9-3, and the Cadillac CTS.
Just like most of the cars that is marketed and produced under the Volvo brand, the Volvo S60 sedan is a luxury car. The design was the product of the creative mind of Peter Horbury. For this sedan, the advertising tagline was “Revolvolution”.
Volvo vehicles are more known to be box type cars and vehicles. However, the Volvo S60 seems to be the start of a new fad and generation of Volvos for this sedan is known as the curvier and softer vehicle under this brand. Given as an option for this vehicle is a new system that the company calls BLIS which means blind spot information system and of course this is for added safety.
Another safety feature for this vehicle is the rain repellent coating on the front side window of the car and the mirror glass which assists in keeping the vehicle clear. And once a person takes a ride inside the vehicle, they would be able to notice the fine and luxurious features that the vehicle holds inside like its center console which has been ideally and functionally located as well as designed to exude luxury.
