We are at the launch of the new generation Volvo XC60 and S60 and both of these cars get new looks along with added features. The luxury segment is witnessing a fierce battle and after launching the Volvo V40 Cross Country this is Volvo's next attempt at increasing market share. As you can see both of these cars have had their designs changed.
The new XC60 gets a redesigned front featuring a new hood plus it does away with any black trim now being available in full body colour. It also gets new headlamps plus the grille with the chrome bars looks more premium too. Inside the new XC60 gets some subtle updates with wood inlays and metal inserts.
The big news inside is the new 7-inch touch screen display and the Adaptive Digital Display (taken from the V40). Among other features it gets torque vectoring system, Corner Traction Control and Hill Descent Control (optional).
The new S60 is very important for Volvo India and it gets some big changes. The front is new while the side/rear views remain more or less the same. In total, at the front it gets a wider grille, new DRL headlamps and more horizontal lines.
At the rear it gets new LED tail-lamps. Inside just like the XC60 the new S60 gets wood inlays and metal inserts plus 7-inch touch screen display and the Adaptive Digital Display. Paddle shifters are there with the automatic gearbox and it has a new feature called Active High Beam Control which means you need not switch between low and high beam. Instead, Active High Beam Control makes it possible keep the headlights on full beam continuously.
