The new Volvo S60 2021: the third generation sedan.

At the opening of a new plant in Charleston, South Carolina, the Swedish automaker unveiled the third-generation Volvo S60 sedan, the first model on the company’s assembly line.

Judging by the photo of the new Volvo S60 2021, the car turned out to be very harmonious and balanced, although we have already seen most of the design decisions on the previously presented V60 station wagon and the older S90 four-door.

At the front, there is an almost complete copy of the five-door with a similar radiator grille and the same head optics, flaunting proprietary diode sections, called the «torus hammer».

Is that the design of the front bumper on the Volvo S60 is done a little differently.

The clean lines of the sidewalls on the «sixty» are complemented by a stiffening rib in the area of ​​the rear fenders and a curved sill line.

The stern is distinguished by fashionable C-shaped lights, but unlike the older brother, the section for the license plate is located not on the bumper, but on the trunk lid, while the inscription «Volvo» is displayed in large letters along its edge.

The interior of the new 2021 Volvo S60 is also familiar from a number of other models, where Swedish minimalism has long been actively used.

The steering wheel, instrument panel, the entire front panel, center console and dashboard are absolutely the same as on the carriage.

The vertically oriented 9.0-inch touchpad of the «Sensus Connect» multimedia system supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G connectivity.


With the change of generation, the new Volvo S60 2021 body moved to the modular SPA platform, which made it possible to slightly reduce the total weight of the car and add additional rigidity to the structure.

The overall length of the sedan is 4,761 mm (+ 126), the wheelbase has added 96 millimeters to 2,872, the width is 2,040 millimeters (including side mirrors), and the height is 2,872.

The volume of the trunk of the model was increased from 380 to 442 liters, and with the backs of the rear sofa folded down, 1,680 will fit in the compartment.

A couple of them were two rechargeable hybrids T6 Twin Engine and T8 Twin Engine — both come with all-wheel drive and can please with 340 and 400 «horses».

With the latter, the S60 III sedan is able to gain a hundred from a standstill in 4.9 seconds — the dynamic characteristics of other versions have not yet been specified.

But that’s not all — the top-end variant can be retrofitted with the optional Polestar Engineered package, which includes engine boost up to 415 hp. and 670 Nm, installation of adjustable Ohlins shock absorbers, a front suspension strut, more efficient Brembo brakes with gold calipers and specially designed wheels.
