The all-new S60 draws many styling cues from the S60 concept and features many of the same design elements as the rest of the Volvo models. Unfortunately the suicide doors from the concept didn’t make it to production, but the coupe-like roofline remains.
Volvo claims that the new S60 will drive like no other Volvo and will be safer thanks to the Pedestrian Detection system.
The 2011 Volvo S60 will enter production in early summer 2010.

Sculpted to move you – first pictures of the all-new Volvo S60
Here are the first official pictures of the all-new Volvo S60 – sportier and more dynamic than any previous Volvo model.
“The all-new Volvo S60 is sculpted to move you. It looks and drives like no other Volvo before and the car’s technology will help you to be safer and more confident behind the wheel,” says Stephen Odell, President and CEO of Volvo Cars.
The Volvo S60 can be equipped with Pedestrian Detection – a groundbreaking safety feature that can detect pedestrians in front of the car and brake automatically if the driver does not react in time.
The all-new Volvo S60 is being unveiled to the public for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in early March next year. Production of the sporty sedan model will start in early summer 2010 at the Volvo Cars plant in Ghent, Belgium.
“Customers in this segment want emotional appeal, sporty design and dynamic driving properties. The S60 has it all. We are convinced that it will be one of the strongest contenders around,” says Stephen Odell.
