3 Things We Need To Know About The 2019 Volvo S60

2019 Volvo S60

Volvo already presented the V60 before critics and car enthusiasts at this week’s 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This means that the Swedish automaker is gearing for a reveal of both the S60 and the V60 sometime soon. We’re particularly hoping that it will happen during the New York International Auto Show at the end of this month after all, both cars are tagged as 2019 models due to the showrooms later this year.

Now, Swedish website Teknikens Varld posted a photo of the new S60 from the rear, contrary to the front-facing photo that Volvo released a week ago. This means we have more info on how the 2019 Volvo S60 will look like.

1. Scaled-down S90

Just like before, the new S60 will look like a scaled-down version of the S90. This makes sense since the V60 also happens to be a miniscule V90 in design and style. The interior of the S60 should be very near what we saw in the V60’s cabin.

2. Longer model

Much like the V60, which is five inches longer than the model it replaced, the S60 will also be lengthier over the current generation S60. There’s no word yet on the size difference, but we’re expecting somewhere along the same lines of the difference between the current V60 and the new V60—yes, a whooping five inches. The extra length, at least 3.75 inches, will be distributed to the wheelbase that will increase the legroom for rear-seat passengers.

3. T5 and T6 engines

The S60 will arrive with T5 and T6 engines that will be able to produce 250 and 316 horsepower, respectively. Plug-in hybrid models are to be expected and these will use twin engines to power them up. The T8, in particular, is already in the schedule, but it won’t be available for US customers.

The new 2019 Volvo S60 will be the first model produced at Volvo’s plant in Charleston, South Carolina.

 

Top Picks From The 2018 Geneva Motor Show

The 2018 Geneva Motor Show is in full swing with heart-stopping decadence of vehicles and concepts and everything else in between. There’s truly nothing like it and when it comes to bucket list, the Geneva Motor Show is in every car lover’s list.

Here, we looked at the top three picks that were revealed just recently in the ongoing Geneva Auto Show other than the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door.

1. RUF SCR

If you love vintage cars, look no further than the RUF SCR. The $650,000 price tag may throw you off, but there is simply nothing like this. It looks like a classic Porsche 911, except that this one uses completely custom chassis that will reduce weight and improve handling conditions. All of this will help fuel the 4.0-liter water-cooled flat-six that is able to produce 510 horsepower.

2. Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo

Porsche plans to release the actual Mission E next year as competition in the EV industry heats up. Directly, the Mission E will compete with Tesla and will finally fulfill Porsche’s dream of an all-electric Mission E. The one previewed at the Geneva Motor Show is not the final design yet, but it is closer in design to the actual Mission E than the ones we saw in the past years. According to Porsche, the Mission E will be able to do 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and 0-125mph in 12 seconds flat.

3. Bentley Bentayga Hybrid

The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid unveiled during the motor show will be the same one that will come rolling off the factories. This is the first hybrid car that Bentley ever created, making sure it’s as special as they come. It has a plug-in system and batteries to power its twin electric motors that are paired with 3.0-liter V6 turbo gasoline engine. As a result, it will only emit 75g/km of carbon dioxide, far less, of course, than the three Bentayga models. The twin electric motors can go up to 30 miles before the gasoline engine kicks in. The batteries, on the other hand, can be fully charged in just 2.5 hours at a high-output charging station.
