Volvo Car India opens bookings for new S60 sedan

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 20 Jan 2021


Volvo Car India has opened advance online bookings for the new S60 sedan. The carmaker has set an introductory price of Rs 45.9 lakh (ex-showroom) for a limited number of bookings made online at www.volvocars.in.

The company is also offering complimentary membership to its exclusive Tre Kronor Experience program to the early buyers of the luxury sedan. The deliveries of cars booked during January and February will commence from mid-March.

Built on Volvo Cars’ own Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, the new S60 has secured a five-star rating from Euro NCAP. The new S60 shares safety technology and infotainment system with the top-of-the-line 90 Series cars 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 recognize pedestrians, cyclists and large animals. In a world first for the midsize sedan segment, City Safety now also engages auto braking to mitigate oncoming collisions.

The Pilot Assist system – which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130kph – has been upgraded with improved cornering performance. The S60 also includes Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and steering assistance systems.

The car’s Sensus Connect infotainment system is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 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.

 “As a brand, we have saved more than a million lives through our safety innovations and we are committed to help saving the next million. The new S60 is one of the safest sedans today and surely helps us save more lives,” Charles Frump, Managing Director – Volvo Car India, said.

 “The new S60 is an exciting car and will attract people who like top-of-the-line luxury and safety features in their ride. As we open the bookings for S60, we want to make sure the customers remain safe while retaining the flexibility to book the car from anywhere. The online route achieves both these goals efficiently,” Frump added.

The Volvo Tre Kronor Experience Program will entitle the new S60 owners a host of priority and personalised experiences such as a dedicated Volvo relationship manager, doorstep solutions for certain services, complimentary pick up and drop of cars for service-related needs, benefits for referring new customers and rewards for new purchases.
