Wider grille, daytime lighting and a new LED alloy headlight on the rear lights. This car has a clean surface and contour beauty giving a strong Scandinavian feel.

Overall very warm and comfortable, like being in a warm Swedish home on a cold night. The color theme fits beautifully with the backlit white control on the dashboard.

Volvo S60 buyers have a choice of four types of chassis – Touring, Dynamic, Four-C (Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept) and Lower Sport Chassis, previously only available in the R-Design version.
