The Volvo S60 Inscription and the Volvo S60 Cross Country will boost Volvo’s presence in the important premium sedan market.
The new Volvo S60 Inscription will offer class-leading rear space, something consistently requested by US customers.
It will be made at Volvo’s plant in Chengdu, China, and is on show for the first time at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Chengdu is Volvo’s main production facility in China and has been built in accordance with globally monitored quality standards such as the Volvo Cars Manufacturing System, which ensures Volvo Cars’ global quality engineering, quality audit and quality assurance standards.
Levels of installed technology and equipment are the same as the company’s European facilities, as are the working environment, safety and environmental performance standards. Exports to the US will start in the second quarter of this year.
Volvo Cars is stepping up to meet the demands of its core customers with the unveiling of the exciting S60 Cross Country at the Detroit Auto Show.
Back in 1997, when Volvo Cars was the first premium brand to introduce an all-road capable variant of its successful wagons, no one could predict the future success of the crossover concept. Today, the crossover is ubiquitous and has helped to define a whole new category of lifestyle vehicle.
Volvo Cars is once again taking a bold step forward – this time in the sedan segment – with the unveiling of the S60 Cross Country – the first premium sedan with the same level of capability and rugged design cues of the renowned Cross Country wagons.
“We want to further explore the market with our Cross Country brand. We did this back in 1997 with the V70 Cross Country and it led to the birth of a whole new segment. We have included all the capability-driven benefits of the Cross Country brand in this new model, while offering a completely unique expression of adventure and all-road readiness in a distinctly sporty and stylish package,” said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.
