2016 Volvo S60

As you probably know, Volvo makes the safest vehicles in car industry. But its cars are also characterized by high level of luxury and advanced technologies. The S60 is a compact luxury sedan, which was originally launched in 2000. So far, we have seen two generations of it. The first one was produced from 2000 to 2009, while the second-generation model came in 2010 and it is still in production. Current model will be replaced very soon, so 2016 Volvo S60 won’t bring too many changes. This model was refreshed in 2014 and we expect to see next-year model with pretty much same characteristics.
