Volvo Auto India launched the 2014 Volvo XC60 facelift today. The launch event took place at Swedish Embassy, New Delhi.
Pricing for the 2014 Facelift XC60 (Ex-Showroom Delhi) is as follows:-
XC60 D4 KIN INR 40, 50,000
XC60 D4 SUM* INR 43, 50,000
XC60 D5 SUM INR 46, 55,000
The car was launched along with the S60 Facelift. Key Enhancements in the New XC60 include:-
> Laser Assisted Automatic Braking- City safety: City Safety up to 50 km/hr – When the city throws its chaotic face, you’d be a step ahead and a lot safer. The latest version of City Safety prevents collisions up to 50 km/h. This laser based feature senses emergency situations beforehand and pre-charges the brakes to increase the impact of braking or even deploys the brakes if in case they are’nt timely applied.
> Digital TFT Instrument Cluster with 3 Modes: Thin Film Transistor (TFT) is the latest technology user in monitors and televisions. You can choose from 3 graphic display themes “Elegance (Amberish), ECO (Greenish), and Performance (Sporty Reddish)”. The driving modes transform the interactive dashboard, monitor your driving, and assist you in maintaining optimization and not to mention the mood.
> Sport Leather Seats: The new sport seat has great hugging side support all the way from the thighs to the shoulders, so the seat keeps the driver firmly in position when cornering fast. Nearly one hundred people of all shapes and sizes tested this seat, only followed by a really enthusiastic response. Also adjustments are made to the seat back, so it provides more legroom for passengers in the rear.
> Gear Shift Paddles: The three-spoke steering wheels can now be accompanied by paddle shifters for cars specified with automatic transmission. They turn the automatic box into a manual with the benefit of gear shifting with both hands on the wheel. The paddle shifters give the enthusiastic driver an additional edge, particularly when powering round twisty roads. And for the added comfort of drivers in Sweden and other cold countries, the steering wheel can also be specified with heating for increased comfort on cold winter days.
> LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL): Together with wider grille and daylight running lights, they give 60 cars a striking, squat presence.
> Dual Exhaust Tail Pipes, Integrated: The new integrated tailpipes, which can be specified with some engine variants, are the physical and visual link to the technically advanced engines. But it is not just about beautiful design: the designers have had to cope with the fact that at operating temperature, the tailpipes have to remain perfectly in place despite the exhaust system expanding in length by up to 25 mm. This is another example of true Scandinavian precision engineering.
The refined XC60 has a commanding driving position supported by generous ground clearance and the class-leading chassis. The XC60 is designed to feel every bit as nimble and agile as a standard height road car.
The car is available in 8 colours i.e. Black Metallic, Electric Silver, Caspian Blue, Twilight Bronze, Flamenco Red Pearl, Crystal White Pearl, Bright Silver Metallic and Rich Java.
The cars will be retailed through Volvo’s dealerships across the country starting today.
