Motorcity, the exclusive distributor of Volvo cars in Bahrain has announced the launch of the new S60 mid-size premium sports sedan at a press event in the Capital Club Bahrain.
Expressing his excitement at the launch of the new Volvo, Motorcity Chairman Mr. Waleed Kanoo stated, “The S60 is the benchmark amongst premium sports sedans. It’s a car for those who want a highly personalised expression of their personality. We know the pulse of our customers and the S60’s technology and meticulous craftsmanship takes their luxury experience to the next level.
With innovation in its DNA, impressive interior and stylish exterior, there cannot be a better vehicle to make an impression other than the S60. We are confident that Volvo‘s reputation for advanced safety features will further motivate discerning customers to explore the classy S60.”
The 2020 Volvo S60 is available with multiple powertrain choices. The T4 has a 190-hp FWD, while the T5 has a 254-hp AWD.
The new S60 shares Volvo Cars’ own Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, safety technology and infotainment system with the S90 premium Sedan, launched and award-winning XC60, all of which have achieved industry-leading safety ratings. This makes the new S60 one of the safest cars on the road.
The City Safety with Autobrake technology assists the driver in avoiding potential collisions, and is the only system on the market to recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals. In a world first for the mid-size sedan segment, City Safety now also engages auto braking to mitigate oncoming collisions.
The optional Pilot Assist system – which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130km/h – has been upgraded with improved cornering performance. The S60 also includes Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering assistance systems. The optional Cross Traffic Alert with autobrake further enhances safety for people inside and outside the car.
Volvo Cars’ Sensus Connect infotainment system is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. The intuitive control is a tablet-style touch screen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment apps.
