The Volvo S60 Concept car was unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in early January 2009 and gives an indication of what the all-new Volvo S60 will look like when it's launched in 2010. "The all-new S60 will be one of the strongest players in a segment where the competition is razor-sharp," says Volvo Cars President and CEO Stephen Odell.
The Volvo S60 Concept presents a safety innovation that can detect a pedestrian who steps out into the path of the car. The technology, Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake and pedestrian detection, will be introduced in the all-new Volvo S60 when it's launched in 2010 and detects pedestrians and automatically activates full braking power if the driver doesn't respond to the danger.
With the interior of the Volvo S60 Concept, Volvo Cars' design director Steve Mattin and his team are displaying a variety of new ideas. "You could say that we are showing the road we would like to take in the future. This interior is without doubt the most exclusive we have ever created," says Steve Mattin.
Volvo Cars has chosen a four-cylinder 1.6-litre petrol unit using high-efficiency GTDi (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) technology, producing 180 horsepower for the Volvo S60 Concept. This engine in combination with a range of other technical measures makes it possible to cut carbon dioxide emissions to 119 g/km.
