2007 Volvo S60
A sporty and safety oriented facelift

The front spoiler has been redesigned.

APN,
9th May 2006.

The Volvo S60 midsize sedan is being further refined for its 2007 model year, with a spiced up design and fine-tuned chassis.

Exterior - On the design side, the optional front spoiler has been redesigned to get a more pronounced and protruding contour at the bottom. On optional variants, the entire front spoiler, including the sills and rear lower bumper, are colour coordinated with the car body. The boot lid can also be specified with a sporty new wing spoiler.

The 2007 model also gets a new grille with a larger and more pronounced Volvo emblem in the form of the classic but rejuvenated iron symbol.

The door mirrors feature integrated side indicators. At the same time, a practical new indicator function is being introduced: press lightly on the lever and the indicator flashes three times.

The boot lid can also be specified with a sporty new wing spoiler.

Three new exterior colours – Electric Silver, Orinoco Blue and Maple Red – increase the choice, as do the three new aluminium wheels – Nodus (7x16 inches), Tucana (7.5x17 inches) and Eudora (8x18 inches).

Interior - The new interior features include optional Grid Aluminium metal decor panels, designed to create a more three-dimensional impression and tactile feeling. On the column stalks, the air intake controls and the steering wheel, aluminium bright work has been added. The bright work is also included on the new three-spoke sports steering wheel in perforated leather (option).

To enhance the sporty tone, the instrument panel can be optionally specified with the same type of watch-like instruments introduced in the new Volvo S80 and that were previously the exclusive preserve of Volvo’s sportiest model, the S60 R. Another new option is the interior rear-view mirror with a built-in compass.

Chassis - To highlight the car’s sporty nature on the road, the standard chassis has been further developed in a number of areas. Firmer shock absorbers and springs front and rear increase the car’s torsional rigidity by about 25 percent.

The anti-roll bars are also sturdier than before and the bushes are solid, which together promote a harmonious balance between reassuring road manners and supple ride comfort.

Turning headlights - The Volvo S60 can also be optionally equipped with Active Bi-Xenon Light – the moving headlight beams that follow the curve of the road. A mini-processor is used to measure and analyse a number of parameters and optimise the beam pattern accordingly. The headlight beams can be turned up to 15 degrees in either direction, and can thus illuminate a longer stretch of road even in curves.
