Volvo S60 / 2011

The all-new Volvo S60 makes its worldwide introduction at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday 2 March 2010. It dispatches into one of the auto world's most serious sections supported by a rich new car like plan, dynamic driving qualities and notable Pedestrian Detection security innovation.
In its general shape, the all-new Volvo S60 is a roadster; sportier and more particular than any past Volvo. In its plan, it guarantees incredible driving attributes, even before you get in the driver's seat. To convey the most elevated levels of driving pleasure, the body group have refined each and every detail that impacts a vehicle's driving properties and tweaked the driving experience to offer the most powerful ride at any point seen before on a Volvo. The all-new S60 territory will be accessible from dispatch with a decision of two diesels and one petroleum motor, including an uprated elite 3.0-liter T6 petroleum variant with 304bhp, a 2.4-liter 205bhp D5 and a 2.0-liter 163bhp D3 powerplant. A DRIVe form controlled by a 1.6-liter diesel motor with CO2 outflows of around 115g/km and efficiency of up to 65.7mpg (consolidated cycle, starter figure) will join the reach later in 2011. In its general shape, the all-new Volvo S60 is a four-entryway car - sportier and more particular than any past Volvo. The C-mainstay of the all-new Volvo S60 extends right to the tail lights - and the thin car - like rooftop line is joined by another shape on the shoulders on one or the other side of the lower body. This makes a delicate twofold wave in the line from the headlamps at the front to the tail lights at the back.

The Volvo S60's athletic position is highlighted by an etched cap and short shades front and back, in addition to what Volvo's plan group calls the "circuit" plan. The vehicle's lines don't end unexpectedly however rather keep on streaming naturally, repeating the smooth states of the circuit. This energetic appearance can be additionally upgraded with an outside styling unit that joins front and back slide plates, two casings in the lower valence, side scrape plates, exhaust tailpipe finishers and 18-inch composite wheels. Volvo's originators have likewise utilized LED (Light Emitting Diode) innovation to make particular, signature lights at the front and back that make the vehicle unmistakably recognizable as a Volvo S60, even in obscurity. The all-new Volvo S60 is being presented with a scope of outside colors including two new shades: Vibrant Copper and Electrum Gold. The new Volvo S60 is the most wearing Volvo at any point assembled and during the advancement cycle, the skeleton group refined each and every detail to calibrate the driving experience.
The aftereffect of their works is a recently evolved Dynamic frame, standard on each new Volvo S60. The controlling stuff proportion is 10% quicker than in past models to give improved guiding feel and more keen reaction. The controlling section's thicker tubing and stiffer brambles have expanded torsional unbending nature by 100%. This likewise adds to the expanded sensation of direct contact with the haggles street. The front spring swaggers have thicker cylinders contrasted and the games body in the Volvo S80. The resultant 47% increment of solidness implies that the body structure is better ready to ingest parallel burdens. The actual springs are more limited and stiffer than previously and the Eigen recurrence has expanded by 10%. At the front, spring swagger mounting solidness has expanded by 50%. The front and back subframe brambles are up to twice as firm contrasted and past models. The connection arm bushings have likewise been enhanced for energetic driving and full control. The damper mountings at the back are made of PUR (polyurethane) rather than elastic to give better harmony among solace and dynamic control. Stefan Sällqvist, liable for the Volvo S60 skeleton advancement clarified: "We spent numerous weeks tweaking the dampers out in the English open country. We drove on old Roman streets that have just at any point gotten a couple of layers of landing area throughout the long term - an ideal climate for tracking down the right damping qualities."Advanced Stability Control.The Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) in the all-new Volvo S60 has various refined components to work on driving delight and security.The Volvo S60 is the principal cantina available with Volvo's Advanced Stability Control. With another roll sensor, it's feasible to distinguish any sliding inclination whatsoever beginning phase.

This implies that the counter pallet framework can step in prior and with more noteworthy accuracy. Progressed Stability Control is an extraordinary resource in powerful driving that includes impressive parallel powers. The powerful new skeleton is upheld by a scope of electronic frameworks that further hone the energetic driving experience. Corner Traction Control is another element that utilizes force vectoring so the vehicle takes corners all the more easily. This innovation is a further refinement of the DSTC framework. When taking a bend, the vehicle's inward determined wheel is slowed down simultaneously as more force is communicated to the external driven wheel. This permits the driver to take the corner all the more firmly while lessening any propensity to understeer. An exceptionally progressed slowing mechanism is a significant piece of the unique driving properties of the all-new Volvo S60. Various provisions cooperate to give the most brief conceivable halting distance in all situations. Innovation incorporates: Prepared Alert Brakes can foresee when crisis slowing down is required. The brake calipers are applied softly to the brake circles even before the driver presses the brake pedal. Water powered Brake Assist helps the driver brake in the briefest conceivable distance. In a crisis circumstance where the driver doesn't press the brake pedal quick or hard enough, Hydraulic Brake Assist can assist with using the ABS framework ideally and consequently abbreviate the in general slowing down distance. Streamlined Hydraulic Brakes is a framework that enhances slowing down capacity during firm slowing down by utilizing hydrodynamics to make up for low vacuum strain in the brake servo.Blurring Brake Support utilizes the water driven framework to continuously develop brake tension during long, hard slowing down.
This diminishes the danger of brake blur and keeps up with pedal feel. The all-new S60 is outfitted with an Electronic Parking Brake as standard. All variations of the new Volvo S60 can be determined with the FOUR-C dynamic skeleton, which has been changed and refined for better control and solace. This is a high level, self-changing undercarriage framework that utilizes various sensors to persistently screen the vehicle's conduct. In simple parts of a second, the dampers are acclimated to suit the current driving circumstance. With three elective undercarriage settings, everything necessary is for the driver to press a button to modify the vehicle's person: Comfort, Sport or Advanced.ENGINE RANGE.At dispatch, the Volvo S60 territory will be accessible with a decision of two diesels and one petroleum motor. Every one of the motors have been created to fulfill the most noteworthy needs on lively, unique driving with serious fuel utilization. The elite twin super D5 produces 205 pull and 420Nm of force. Speed increase from 0-62mph requires 7.8 seconds (manual and programmed) and maximum velocity is 146mph (manual) and 143mph (programmed). In the latest D5 adaptation, presented in spring 2009, the exhibition and driveability necessities have been met by fitting two turbochargers of various sizes, one taking over from the other and giving added power inside a more extensive fire up range. The outcome is ready reaction and quick speed increase at all paces, with consistent exchanges in the super fire up range between the two turbochargers. The corresponding properties of the two turbos join elite with lower fuel utilization of 47.9mpg (EU Combined, starter figure). Progressed fuel infusion innovation utilizing piezoelectric fuel valves gives accurate dissemination of fuel in the ignition chamber, with productive burning and low discharges as a result.Smaller relocation brings down fuel utilization.Likewise there is the recently evolved 2.0-liter D3 motor delivering 163hp and 400Nm of force. Speed increase from 0-62mph requires 9.2 seconds (manual and programmed) and maximum velocity is 137mph (manual) and 134 mph (programmed). The new five-chamber 2.0D is, on a basic level, a similar motor as the present 2.4D, however chamber limit has been diminished with a more limited stroke to upgrade fuel utilization. With a manual gearbox fuel utilization is currently up to 54.3mpg (EU Combined, starter figure). The motor has been streamlined to bring to the table decreased fuel utilization and the infusion framework has an alternate kind of piezoelectrical fuel valve contrasted and the D5 motor. These valves downplay fuel utilization on account of especially quick and exact infusion beats under high tension.This outcomes in undeniably more effective ignition.To give the vehicle better driving properties, the turbocharger has been tweaked for high force from low fires up. Both turbodiesels are accessible with six-speed manual gearbox as standard or a discretionary six-speed programmed transmission. An upkeep free particulate channel that snares around 95% of the ash particles is fitted as standard in the two motors.Elite T6 petroleum motor The 3.0-liter T6 petroleum motor creates 304 hp and 440 Nm of force, improving speed increase and smooth advancement out and about. Speed increase from 0-62 mph requires 6.5 seconds and maximum velocity is 155 mph. Volvo Cars' motor experts have prevailed with regards to cutting fuel utilization by around 10% to 27.7 mpg (EU Combined, fundamental figure).

The motor's force is conveyed to the wheels through Volvo's second-age six-speed programmed Geartronic transmission. New valves and lower contact mean quicker stuff changes than previously. AWD (All Wheel Drive) is standard on the T6. During the principal year of creation a DRIVe adaptation of the all-new Volvo S60 will be presented, highlighting another 1.6-liter diesel motor. Fuel utilization will be a noteworthy 65.7mpg (EU Combined, primer figure), comparing to CO2 emanations roughly under 115 g/km. The uprated motor produces 115 hp and 270 Nm of force, and may be accessible with a six-speed manual gearbox. Later during the principal year of creation, the all-new Volvo S60 will likewise open up with a 2.0 GTDi variation (T5) delivering 240 hp and force of 320 Nm. Moreover, there will be a 1.6-liter GTDi motor accessible in two forms: 180 hp (T4) and 150 hp (T3) with force of 240 Nm. All the GTDi motors will be accessible in blend with Volvo's discretionary programmed six-speed Powershift transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. The Powershift idea works like two equal manual gearboxes with independent grips, giving speedy and fuel-saving gearchanges.
The all-new Volvo S60 highlights the earth shattering Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake framework. Walker Detection comprises of a recently formed radar unit coordinated into the vehicle's grille, a camera fitted before the inside back see reflect, and a focal control unit. The radar's assignment is to recognize any article before the vehicle and to decide the distance to it. The camera figures out what kind of item it is. The full auto brake a piece of the innovation additionally reacts to vehicles in front that are at a halt or that are moving a similar way as the vehicle fitted with the framework. The recently evolved double mode radar's a lot more extensive field of vision guarantees that walkers going to venture into the street can be recognized from the beginning. The camera has higher goal than the past age auto brake which makes it conceivable to distinguish the walker's example of development. "The auto-slowing mechanism necessitates that the item is affirmed by both the radar and the camera. Because of the high level sensor innovation utilized, it is presently conceivable to increment to full slowing down power," clarifies Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo Cars. "Distinguishing walkers with adequately high unwavering quality has been a complicated test. Our creative innovation is modified to follow a person on foot's example of development and furthermore to work out whether the individual is probably going to venture into the street before the vehicle.
The framework can recognize walkers who are 80 cm tall and upwards, in other words including kids." In a crisis circumstance the driver initially gets a perceptible admonition joined with a blazing light in the windscreen's head up show. To create a quick, natural response, this admonition looks like a brake light. Simultaneously, the vehicle's brakes are pre-charged. In the event that the driver doesn't respond to the notice and a mishap is impending, full slowing down power is consequently applied. This innovation has similar restrictions as the natural eye, and actually like us it "sees" less well in obscurity and in helpless climate. Person on foot Detection with Full Auto Brake can keep away from an impact with a walker at velocities of up to 21mph if the driver doesn't respond on schedule. At higher rates, the attention is on diminishing the vehicle's speed however much as could be expected preceding the effect. The speed decrease is up to 21mph. Insights uncover that the vehicle's speed has significant significance for the result of the mishap. A lower speed of effect implies that the danger of genuine injury is altogether decreased. For example, in case speed is sliced from 30mph to 15mph, Pedestrian Detection with full auto brake is relied upon to decrease the casualty hazard by as much as 20% and in specific cases by up to 85 percent. The all-new Volvo S60 likewise includes City Safety as standard, as seen on its greater sibling - the XC60. The framework can diminish or even altogether keep away from low-speed backside impacts at speeds up to 18mph. 

Extra security frameworks accessible: 

Driver Alert Control (DAC). An extraordinary innovation to caution drained and occupied drivers. This capacity screens the vehicle's advancement between the path markers and cautions the driver if their driving example changes in an irregular or uncontrolled manner. Vulnerable side Information System (BLIS) recognizes vehicles in the back vulnerable side on the two sides of the vehicle. An admonition light adjacent to the applicable entryway reflect hits on alert the driver to the risk. Dynamic Bi-Xenon Lights are explained headlights that follow the bend of the street. For best chance brightening when driving in obscurity on contorting streets. Path Departure Warning alarms the driver if the vehicle stumbles into the path markers without the turn pointer being utilized.
