Volvo Cars is again offering another premium vehicle that caters to the needs and wants of its customers in the United States. Dubbed as the Volvo S60 Inscription, this vehicle tries to meet the most common features that US customers are looking for in a car.
One of these features is comfortable seating for rear passengers. Those occupying the posterior part of the cabin usually complain of not having enough legroom. Volvo addresses this by increasing the rear seat legroom of the S60 Inscription by 3.5 inches.
Such revamp means the Volvo S60 Inscription offers best-in-class rear accommodation. Moreover, the Volvo S60 Inscription features materials that do not only speak of the vehicle’s premium quality and class but also convey the Volvo brand’s Scandinavian roots.
Likewise, the Volvo S60 Inscription features elements that contribute to its premium feel and looks such as silk metal detailing, linear Walnut trim, spacious rear seating and a distinct 19-inch wheels.
Furthermore, the vehicle also features interior accent lighting and Inscription branded tread plates. For the 2016 model year, the S60 Inscription can be availed in two variants: Premier and Platinum.
For the Premier variant, included elements are leather upholstery, a sun/moon roof and the Sensus Navigation package. It will be available with the T5 in both front-wheel drive and All-Wheel Drive.
On the other hand, the Platinum variant includes all the features of the Premier version, but with the addition of the full Sensus technology package, dual Xenon lights and a high-end Harman Kardon audio system, as well as a convenience package.
Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy & Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Car Group, remarked that the carmaker conducted extensive research to determine what customers want and expect from Volvo Cars, as part of efforts to revive the brand in the US.
He said that the research results showed that customers want innovative safety; high-performance yet eco-friendly powertrains; and vehicle connectivity – all of which comprise the traditional strength of Volvo’s product offering.
Moreover, Kerssemakers remarked that those qualities are all in the S60 Inscription, with the addition of luxury and the use of natural materials, as well as the brand’s Scandinavian design language. He added that the addition of the Harman Kardon audio system and full vehicle connectivity allows Volvo to offer a competitive entry in the mid-sized sedan segment.
