You can have it all with Volvo S60
Volvo’s DRIVe badge is attached to those models that deliver the best environmental performance in their respective classes and that translates to an impressive 114g/km CO2 emissions on the S60 version, which also equates to zero road tax, whilst the top-of-the-range R-Design trim offers a no-compromise solution for today’s motorist.
Powered by a 1.6-litre diesel engine, the DRIVe version’s fuel consumption is an amazing 65.7 mpg (EU Combined) with a driving range of up to 972 miles on one tank (based on official fuel consumption test figures on combined cycle), yet the engine produces 115 hp and 270 Nm of torque.
The S60 R-Design is available from £26,400 on the road and a wide range of funding options and finance schemes means local dealer TMS Coventry, located at 510 London Road, Coventry, can find the package to best suit the individual. Car buyers can even incorporate a monthly maintenance package to budget for routine servicing.
Designed to be sportier and more dynamic than any previous Volvo, the S60 is already a head turner with its coupe-like lines and the R-Design adds even more character and charisma.
On the inside, the driver and front passenger sit in sports seats whilst Volvo engineers have sharpened the chassis for an even more exciting and agile driving experience. R-Design badging and 18-inch five-spoke diamond-cut Ixion aluminium alloy wheels further differentiate this model.
With inspiration taken direct from the racing track, the S60’s instruments and centre stack are angled towards the driver to create a sensation of focus and control whilst the Volvo Sensus information screen is positioned high up to make it easy for the driver to keep his or hers eyes on the road.
All the functions can be controlled via buttons built into the steering wheel or via touch buttons located just below the colour screen.
The Bluetooth connection allows both hands-free phone conversations but also music streaming from a preferred Bluetooth enabled portable music player. 2012 models include the new mobile application that makes sure that the driver can stay in touch with the parked car via an iPhone or Android smart phone.
Like the rest of the S60 model range, the R-Design is fitted with Volvo’s award-winning City Safety technology, as well as a suite of other safety systems such as Dynamic Stability Traction Control and Side Impact Protection System. Pedestrian Detection with full auto brake detects pedestrians who walk into the road in front of the car and Driver Alert detects and alerts tired and distracted drivers for even higher levels of safety.
