Best 6 Volvo Cars for 2016
Volvo India is preparing a plan to “explode” in the auto industry in India next year. Specifically, they are going to introduce up to 7 new awesome cars including the S60 Polestar and…
1. VOLVO S90
The Volvo S90 is said to be the flagship model in its line-up and Volvo S90 launch will occur at the Detroit Auto Show 2016. This is really a stunning car to replace the outgoing Volvo S80 sedan. The S90 comes with Thor’s Hammer LED light signature and will launch in INDIA soon.
So, you will have a highly user friendly interior and infotainment systems XC90 uses together with new engines on this Volvo S90 Beast. But this is not all Volvo will launch 6 more cars in India in 2016…
2. VOLVO S60 CROSS COUNTRY
The company has designed Volvo S60 to be the first of its kind cross sedan in India. It features SUV style like side claddings and plastic exposed wheel trim for example. In addition, the car also packs 302hp which makes it able to push from 0-60 in just 5.4 seconds. Moreover, some technological improvement is also applied such as Wi-Fi, 3D Navigation and Blind Spot Information and Adaptive Cruise Control (enabling the car to automatically adjust based on the speed and distance of a car in front of yours). As a result, Volvo S60 will surely bring you more comfortable driving experience.
3. VOLVO S60 POLESTAR
With this model, you will still be able to see the traditional bright blue color of the brand and have a chance to experience a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine built in the car, making 345PS of peak power. Apart from that, Polestar also comes with a great set of safety technologies containing automatic braking, a leather and nubuck upholstery, and heating for the seats and steering wheel. Furthermore, there are a 650-watt, 12-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system, adaptive bixenon headlights, a backup camera, a sunroof, and more to be on board.
4. VOLVO XC90 EXCELLENCE
This is really an impressive name but let’s see what it’s got. Excellence is powered by a gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid drivetrain which is made up of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is both turbocharged and supercharged. Therefore, it can give 400 horsepower and 472 foot-pounds of torque to 4 wheels. Talking about interior, the rear seats sport an electronically controlled set-up with massage and cooling features, and movable touchscreens for entertainment. That’s fantastic!
5. VOLVO XC90 R-DESIGN
This is a sportier model called R-Design. Looking at the car, we have a feeling that the shape and contours of the car are a bit more aggressive compared to other models. But, it is beautiful, right?! Besides, we also notice that the wheels are bigger and the interior boasts a more aggressive seat set-up and carbon fibre insert.
6. VOLVO V40 FACELIFT
It seems like the V40 design is inspired by the XC90 design. It has Thor’s Hammer LED DRLs and a small vertical-slat grille. Additionally, V40’s got a D4 Drive-E 4-cylinder twin turbo diesel engine rated at 190 PS and 400 Nm with a six-speed manual transmission or 8-speed Aisin automatic gearbox. The car is likely to feature a touchscreen infotainment system though there’s been no official word for that, so let’s wait and see!
7. VOLVO V40 CC FACELIFT
As you know, Volvo V40 CC has been available in India for a while yet its sales was not really good. Maybe that is the reason why the company wants to release a facelifted version of the V40 to boost the sales of the car in the future. And you need to know the facelift is limited to bumpers, grilles and wheels along with some updates in the interior department. We are looking for this cool guy!
Well, those are 7 best cars Volvo is going to launch in 2016. We bet that they want to take advantage of the growing popularity of luxury cars in India and be the first one to capitalise on it early. Then, what do you think about their products as well as strategy? Will it work? Share with us your opinions!
