All-New 2011 Volvo S60 Will Start At $38,550 In Late 2010

The all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sport sedan will start at $38,550 including the $850 destination charges. VCNA President and CEO Doug Speck says "When you consider you can own an extremely well-equipped 2011 Volvo S60 for only $41,400, and that you will pay nothing to repair or maintain the all-new S60 for 5 years or 60,000 miles, it really becomes a no-brainer."

The all-new Volvo S60 sport sedan comes standard with a new infotainment system which includes a 7-inch high-definition color monitor accessed through steering-wheel mounted controls. Information regarding the audio system, in-dash DVD video player, climate and vehicle settings are monitored and controlled through a thumb-activated rotator. Other standard features include a six-speed Geartronic transmission, 18-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned Dynamic chassis, speed sensitive steering with driver-selectable settings, Bluetooth, HD Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio with a complimentary six-month subscription. The all-new Volvo S60 comes standard with City Safety, an auto braking system which is active from 2 - 18 mph and automatically stops the S60 if the car in front unexpectedly stops.

Volvo will also offer Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake in which radar- and camera-based system can detect pedestrians in front of the car, warn the driver if anyone walks out into its path - and then automatically activate the S60's full braking power if the driver fails to respond in time.

The all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sport sedan goes on sale in late 2010 around the time when Geely of China completes its purchase of Sweden-based Volvo Car Corporation.
