Volvo Cars today revealed their long-awaited new XC60 premium SUV at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new model replaces Volvo’s highly successful original XC60, which in the nine years since its launch became the best-selling premium mid-sized SUV in Europe, with nearly a million units sold globally. The XC60 today represents around 30% of Volvo’s total global sales.
The new XC60 is fully loaded with new technology. Steer Assist has been added to the ground-breaking City Safety system. A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses Steer Assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.
The new XC60 is set to go into production in mid-April at the Torslanda Plant in Sweden.
