2014 VOLVO S60: Bold Scaninavian design that is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces – without clutter – is evident in the redesigned 2014 Volvo S60 that's on display at the 106th annual Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 8-17. There is a performance nature about the four-door’s appearances, emphasized by new, comfortable sport seats. Initially, the new S60 is available in S60 T5, S60 T5 Premier AWD and S60 T5 R-Design AWD packages. For 2014, all Volvo S60 trim levels come equipped with the 2.5-liter. Inline five-cylinder engine that generates 250 horsepower to the front wheels via a six-speed “Geartronic” driver-adaptive automatic transmission with Sport Mode. The powertrain has a 3,300 lbs. towing capacity. To give drivers in cold climate extra comfort, three-spoke steering wheels can now be specified with electric heating. Cars with automatic transmission can get paddle shifters that give the driver the opportunity to shift gear manually with both hands on the wheel. Cars equipped with a rain sensor can now also get an electrically heated windscreen for rapid de-icing on cold winter days. The new Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with full auto brake is equipped with an advanced sensor system that scans the area ahead. If a cyclist heading in the same direction as the car suddenly swerves out in front of the car as it approaches from behind and collision is imminent, there is an instant warning and full braking power is applied. The S60 R-Design model features a unique face with a redesigned, dynamic, expressive nose. The frameless Tech Matte Black grille has high-gloss black stripes, a silk metal diagonal and a refined R-Design emblem. Those DRL lights in the outer corners reinforce the low, road-hugging impression. At the rear, the unique diffuser with aero fins is flanked by the round, high-tech R-Design tailpipes. The R-Design version is now available with all-new 19" Ixion II wheels. Depending on model, 17-inch “Pandora” or “Sadia” alloy wheels come standard, or 18-inch “Titania” alloy hubs. When traveling, the S60 affords 12.0 cu. ft. of luggage space in the trunk compartment.
