Heico Sportiv will build its own interpretation of the Volvo S60 T6 Design. Only 100 units will be produced for this limited edition series. Each unit will be more powerful than before; its styling will be very aggressive; and it will have an imposing Sapphire Black metallic exterior.
Priced at EUR63,968, this latest Heico interpretation will offer upgrades and an exclusivity that makes the vehicle worth the money spent for it. Powering the car is a revised six-cylinder turbo petrol engine that offers 26 hp more, resulting to a total output of 330 hp.
The car is equipped with a six-speed automatic and four wheel drive, enabling it to accelerate from zero to 60mph in 5.8 seconds and reach an electronically controlled speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The car’s fuel consumption figure is pegged at 10.3l/100 km, 22 mpg. Heico tweaked the exterior of the new Volvo S60 T6 Design to make it stand out.
Furthermore, the Volvo S60 is fitted with a two-part front spoiler, rear bumper diffuser, oval tailpipes arranged as four-pipe sports exhaust system and 19-inch Diamond-cut set wheels in matt black paint with Pirelli tires.
Volvo S60 by Heico Sportiv is 30 mm lower than the standard version and it has Volvo's latest features on the Summum trim, including automatic air conditioning, high-quality audio package, electric windows, cruise control , multifunction leather steering wheel, electric foldable mirrors, rain sensor, leather upholstery and dual-xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights.
The brand new style of the Volvo S60, with its firm, dynamic look, exudes the car’s masculine nature.
Exterior Design Director Fedde Talsma said that they have really improved the S60's road appeal with a brand new design at the front. The more firm-looking and focused headlamps aid to create this latest, expressive design. They were sort of creating a vision of a wolf’s eyes when they were creating the design. He also said that they have emphasized the horizontal lines of the S60 both at the rear and at the front. With specific details like a wider grille, new LED light guide on tail lamps, and daylight running lights, the S60 gets a stunning and stable presence. The vehicle has a look that is based in the ordinary world of cars. The neat surfaces and curves give it a Scandinavian feel.
The interior has improvements like the new upholstery themes, new headliner, new wood inlays, and silk metal frames that surround the air vents and better light controls.
Colour and Trim Design Director Lena Jiseborn said that the full effect of the design is cozy and warm, just like the feel of a warm Swedish house on a breezy cold night. The color themes go well with the backlit white controls in the dashboard and anywhere inside the car.
Under the skin, at the core of the active driving experience, is a full spectrum of chassis settings, made around the consumer’s personal needs. The Volvo S60 client has an option of four chassis variants – Dynamic, Lower Sport, Touring, and Four-C (Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept), formerly offered on the R-Design variant.
Sensus Connected Touch - connectivity on a different level
Volvo’s HMI (Human Machine Interface) functionality is called Sensus. The latest edition is the brand new Sensus Connected Touch.
It allows Internet and connectivity in the car and turns the 7-inch screen to a top-of-the-line infared, beam-scanned touch display that can be utilized even while wearing gloves – a first in this type of class and a very handy feature during winter.
