All The Goodies We Are Expecting From The New Volvo S60

Seeing as the S60 is one of Volvo’s best-selling models to date, it only makes sense that it is now entering its third generation, design-wise. Since its debut in 2000, we have seen many different variants of the Volvo S60—from a performance car to an electric car to a cross-country car to an estate care. All of these have been successful in their own rights, but the incoming S60 might be even more special.

Upgraded Performance

The Polestar used to be the performance arm of Volvo and although it is its own brand and name now, it will continue to engineer trim lines and upgraded performance for Volvo’s lineup of vehicles. Polestar will be responsible for the upgrades seen on the third-generation Volvo S60 T8, the V60 T8 Wagon, and the XC60 T8 crossover SUV.

Powerful Powertrains

Thanks to a revised ECU, the S60’s turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter inline-four and electric motor will be made more powerful. That’s the work of Polestar engineering. The upgrades on the machine will add 15 horsepower and 22 pound-feet of torque to the sedan. This means that the vehicle could gain as much as 415 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque.

Boosted Dynamic Features

Volvo is quite proud of the fact that the S60 can now offer adjustable Öhlins shock absorbers and a strut-tower brace received from the 600-hp Polestar 1 gasoline-electric hybrid coupe with gold-painted six-piston Brembo calipers for the front brakes. There are also other enjoyable treats such as big binders that clamp down on the slotted discs and the 10-spoke wheels.

The new S60 will be made in the facilities in South Carolina, so we can expect to see the new model by next week. A high-performance model engineered by Polestar will also be in the works. Reportedly, that high-performance variant will combine the technologies and designs of the V60 wagon and the Polestar 1.



4 Things To Know About The New 2019 Audi S6

The 2019 Audi S6 will soon be unveiled and launched, but we already know a lot of details about it, particularly how it would be more aggressive in styling and it will have a more powerful drivetrain. The upcoming S6 is an important step for Audi towards dominating this segment that Mercedes-Benz and BMW are competing over.

1. Exterior

Based on the spy shots of TopSpeed, the most important exterior styling of the S6 is the new A8-style grille, whose wider element is highlighted by the sharper edges. The grille has three horizontal bars on the upper section, three in the middle section, and on the last section. It seems to us that the S6 is heavenly influenced by the A8—the headlamps are based on the A8 and it also has a more angular design.

The headlights, in particular, are slimmer and have a more angular and wider stance. Overall, the S6 has a sportier and more aggressive look than its predecessors.

2. Interior

The insides will be very similar to the A6, though this one on the S6 is headed by the all-new 12.3-inch diagonal display that replaced the traditional and analog dials on the dashboard. The display will provide information on speed and navigation. The other display in the dash will measure 10.1 inches and will include the latest MMI system with navigation. There’s another screen below—an 8.6-inch screen that has access to climate system, text input, and many other things.

The S6 will also be roomier with improvements on rear-seat legroom, headroom, and shoulder room. The trunk space will be unchanged at 18.7 cubic feet.

3. Powertrain

The current S6 is powered by a 4.0-liter V-8, which is rated at 450 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. However, Audi’s decision to downsize some engines could impact the S6. This means that the V8 could possibly be replaced by a 2.9-liter V-6. That could crank out, at best, is 450 horses and 442 pound-feet of torque.

4. Pricing

The base model would likely be priced around $73,000 to $74,ooo, depending on the options chosen. In the United States, Volvo’s current sedan is priced at $71,900.
