New Volvo S60 2011
The 2011 all-new Volvo S60 has been launched in Malaysia in two fully-imported variants, the 2.0 T5 and 3.0 T6 AWD, costing RM 288,000 and RM 348,000, respectively (prices are OTR without insurance). Available in two colours, Vibrant Copper and Flamenco Red, the all-new S60 was launched at the remote Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang, where Volvo Car Malaysia intended and succeeded in showing off the S60’s new-found dynamics and latest safety gadgets.
The S60 T5 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder engine with 240 hp at 5500 rpm and 320 Nm between 1800–5000 rpm. A six-speed Powershift dual-clutch transmission directs the power to the front wheels, allowing the S60 T5 to complete the century sprint in 7.5 seconds. The S60 T6 uses a 3.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged, direct-injected straight-six engine producing 304 hp at 5600 rpm and 440 Nm between 2100–4200 rpm. Power goes to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic torque converter transmission—enough for the S60 T6 to hit 100 km/h from rest in 6.1 seconds.
