In a highly competitive luxury sedan division of the automotive industry, to be the best, Volvo is asking consumers, “How naughty do you want to be?” With the all-new 2012 Volvo S60, drivers can be as naughty as they want to be. The 2011 Vincentric’s Best Value in America award winner has combined superior power, elegant designing, and top of the line safety features to become the rave of the town.
Featured in the 2012 Volvo S60 is the 2.5-liter inline five cylinder engine that is powered with 250 horsepower and 266 pounds per foot of torque. These naughty machines are equipped with a five speed automatic transmission that can either apply power to the front wheels or all four on all wheel drive models.
With a 0 to 60 time of 6.8 seconds, this Volvo leads all other luxury sedans in acceleration. This is an astonishing feat considering that it competes with the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3-series, and the Lexus IS – all of which are equipped with a six-cylinder engine. Volvo S60’s naughty five cylinder turbocharged engine causes all its competitors to eat dust.
Fuel efficiency is continually climbing up the scale as a major reason as to why consumers choose the automobile that they do. Boasting its 30 miles per gallon fuel efficiency, the 2012 S60 can allow its drivers to be naughty even longer.
The all new 2012 Volvo S60 has also brought to the table a brand new feature that will allow drivers to select between two different chassis settings. The Advanced Stability Control function features a roll rate gyroscope and acceleration sensor to detect slowly built up skids at an early stage and compensates this with great precision. In the Sport Mode, a driver has the option to shut off the spin regulation and allow for more rear skidding and more excitement.
The technology package boasts many safety features that consumers are drooling over. The Adaptive Cruise Control allows a driver to select a desired speed and gap time for the vehicle in front of them, and then automatically adjusts as the radar sensor detects slower vehicles. The Lane Departure Warning function signals the driver when the car crosses road marking without obvious reason. Finally, the Distance Alert activates a red warning light of the windshield to help drivers keep a proper distance with the vehicle in front of them.
The world’s first Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake feature is also equipped in the S60. This feature can detect pedestrians and will automatically avoid collisions at speeds up to 22mph. The driver is alerted by flashing lights and a sound signal, and if they driver does not respond, the car’s brakes are applied automatically with full braking force.
The 2012 Volvo S60 is a comfortable, elegant and powerful luxury sedan that pushes the road to its limits while providing the driver with top rated safety. Move over Shakespeare – To be naughty or not to be naughty… Is the real question. Go on be naughty, Volvo dares you!
