Motorcity launches Volvo S60 Sports Sedan in Bahrain
Motorcity, the exclusive distributor of Volvo cars in Bahrain has announced the launch of the new S60 mid-size premium sports sedan in the Capital Club Bahrain. Motorcity Chairman Waleed Kanoo stated, “The S60 is the benchmark amongst premium sports sedans. It’s a car for those who want a highly personalised expression of their personality. We know the pulse of our customers and the S60’s technology and meticulous craftsmanship take their luxury experience to the next level. The 2020 Volvo S60 is available with multiple powertrain choices.
The T4 has a 190-hp FWD, while the T5 has a 254-hp AWD. The new S60 shares Volvo Cars’ Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, safety technology and infotainment system with the S90 premium Sedan, launched and award-winning XC60, all of which have achieved industry-leading safety ratings. This makes the new S60 one of the safest cars on the road. The City Safety with Autobrake technology assists the driver in avoiding potential collisions and is the only system on the market to recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals.
In a world-first for the mid-size sedan segment, City Safety now also engages autobraking to mitigate oncoming collisions. The optional Pilot Assist system – which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130km/h – has been upgraded with improved cornering performance. The S60 also includes Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering assistance systems. The optional Cross Traffic Alert with auto brake further enhances safety for people inside and outside the car.
Volvo Cars’ Sensus Connect infotainment system is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. The intuitive control is a tablet-style touch screen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment apps. The S60 is currently available at Motorcity along with the rest of the Volvo range of cars which are displayed at the Motorcity showroom in Sitra, which is open Saturdays to Thursdays from 8 am to 7 pm.
