2011 Volvo S60 priced from $38,550

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 10, 2010

Later this year, the 2011 Volvo S60 will arrive at US showrooms, carrying a base price of $38,550 (including an $850 destination charge). This base price is quite higher than the 2009 model, but you can expect some extra standard equipment in the new 2011 S60.

The outgoing model is offered with three different trims but the 2011 S60 is available only with a 300-horsepower turbocharged inline-six, a six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive.

To be offered as standard in this model are a sport-tuned suspension package, leather seats, a 7-inch in-dash screen, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a HD radio tuner, Sirius satellite radio, and Volvo's City Safety automatic braking system.

However, there are several option groups that are available as well. The $1500 premium package includes a power moonroof, a power front passenger seat, and adaptive Xenon HID headlamps.

The climate group, which is priced at $800, includes heated front seats and windshield washer nozzles, along with headlamp washers, rain-sensing wipers, and an interior air purifier. Meanwhile, the S60's multimedia package enables drivers to use that giant in-dash screen for navigation.

For $2700 more, buyers get the navigation system with real-time updates, a rear park assist camera, and an Audyssey 12-speaker surround sound system.

The $2100 tech package gets added gadgets, including Volvo's pedestrian detection system, adaptive cruise control, collision warning, and lane departure warnings.

However, the blind-spot detection system (BLIS) continues to be a stand-alone $700 option. Volvo made its sport-tuned suspension standard, but those who want a softer ride quality can request for the touring chassis at no extra cost. Those who want to switch between the two can get Volvo's Four-C adaptive suspension system for $750 more.

Volvo Announces Pricing of All-New 2011 S60 Sport Sedan

Volvo Cars of North America, LLC (VCNA) today announced pricing for the all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sport sedan of $37,700*. The all-new S60 packs more style, performance and technology than many of its competitors, but at a substantially lower price when showroom equipped. The all-new 2011 Volvo S60 beats a showroom equipped 2011 BMW 335i xDrive by a whopping $7,150, and a Mercedes-Benz C350 by an impressive $1,765. The all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sport sedan goes on sale in late 2010.

The all-new 2011 Volvo S60 is included in Volvo segment leading Safe + Secure Coverage Plan. The program provides best-in-class coverage, offers the lowest cost of luxury ownership (according to IntelliChoice) and has been a major contributor to Volvo's recent sales success. Specifically, it includes:

5 years/60,000 miles of New Car Warranty
5 years/60,000 miles of Complimentary Factory Scheduled Maintenance
5 years/60,000 miles of Wear and Tear Coverage
5 years/Unlimited miles of Volvo On Call Roadside Assistance.

"The all-new S60 has been a long time coming," said VCNA President and CEO, Doug Speck, "but it's been worth the wait. With 300 horsepower, standard all-wheel drive, its stunning design and Volvo's latest technology, it's the kind of car that will put a smile on any driving enthusiast's face." Today's pricing announcement gives the competition pause for thought. "When you consider you can own an extremely well-equipped 2011 Volvo S60 for only $41,400, and that you will pay nothing to repair or maintain the all-new S60 for 5 years or 60,000 miles, it really becomes a no-brainer," continued Speck.
