Safety Enhanced ~ by Dynamic Design
Village Automotive Group’s Boston Volvo and Volvo Village of Norwell, introduces the all-new 2012 Volvo S60 R-design as Volvo’s sportiest sedan to date, without any compromises. Sporting an array of details and advanced technology, the S60 R-design is without doubt, the most dynamic Volvo ever, joining Volvo’s growing range of performance styled models.
Leading the luxury sedan world with three best-in-class categories, the S60 R-design excels in fuel efficiency, grabbing a convenient 30 mpg, leads in acceleration, racing from zero-to-sixty in 5.6 seconds and, with a 5 year/50,000 mile warranty, provides the best-in-class coverage plan.
With two chassis settings, the S60 R-design can add more driving support by selecting Advance Stability Control, or let you get a little more daunting with Sport-Mode.
From a visual standpoint, the Volvo S60 R-design has added spoilers, a revised front grille, color-coordinated body moldings, stylish rims and sporty tailpipes. With a redesigned front clip showcasing a grille painted in glossy piano black, the sporty appearance is further enhanced with color-matched body components, details in matte finish and a hexagonal pattern that is repeated both front and rear. Also, distinctive twin exhaust tailpipes and unique five-spoke 18-inch diamond cut wheels emphasize the sporty overall appeal.
The S60 R-design’s interior boasts both driver and front passenger sports seats that are matched by an all-new seat cushion with even closer side support than before, with a seat cushion that shapes itself to the occupant’s body.
With City Safety standard, and world-first Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake technology, the S60 R-design keeps a watchful eye out for people or cars that unexpectedly cross your path. The driver assistance system consists of a newly developed radar unit integrated into the S60′s grille, featuring a camera fitted in front of the inside rearview mirror and a central control unit that will detect any object in front of the car and determine the distance to it, while also determining what type of object it is. The system helps to avoid hitting a pedestrian at up to 22 mph and is also programmed to respond to vehicles in front that are at a standstill or are moving in the same direction as the car fitted with the system.
