Volvo debuted the third-gen S60 in India in November 2020. The carmaker has now officially started accepting pre-launch bookings for the sedan. While we will have to wait till March 2021 to know the exact price of the new S60, Volvo is offering the new sedan at an introductory price of Rs 45.9 lakh for a limited number of bookings made online. The deliveries of cars booked during January and February will commence from mid-March.
Under the hood, the S60 will be offered with a petrol engine only. It gets a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine making 190PS of power and 300Nm of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
In terms of features, it gets a panoramic Sunroof, four-zone AC, wireless mobile charging, LED headlamps with bending function, digital instrument cluster, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 600 watt Harman Kardon sound system.
Safety features on offer include City Safety with Steering Support, adaptive cruise control with pilot assist, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping aid, driver alert control and hill launch assist.
At an introductory price of Rs 45.9 lakh, the S60 is more expensive than its rivals like the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 facelift, Mercedes Benz C-Class and the Jaguar XE. However, it is to be noted that the S60 is being offered in a single full loaded variant only and it undercuts top-spec variants of all of its rivals. BMW is also gearing up to launch the LWB version of the 3 Series sedan called 3 Series Limousine. It will go on sale on 21 January 2021 and will also compete with the S60 sedan.
