2016 Volvo S60 Inscription Luxury Sedan Introduced
The latest addition to the brand’s range is a luxury iteration of the S60 sedan. The 2016 Volvo S60 Inscription is, in fact, a long-wheelbase variant of the mid-size sedan. Aside from the slightly increased length, the car’s level of luxury is what’s going to attract the customers.
2016 Volvo S60 Inscription Features
They managed to stretch the regular S60 by 3.1 inches. Although it may seem strange, the Inscription model has additional 3.4 inches of legroom at the rear seats. Perhaps it isn’t much, but having in mind that the automaker tries to compete with the most prestigious luxury vehicles within the mid-size sedan market, every inch is relevant.
The 2016 S60 Inscription comes with standard 18-inch wheels and some other features which reveal that the car belongs to the higher stratum. The car’s interior has been improved with Linear Walnut trim, accent lighting and other sophisticated details.
If you’d like to spice up your upscale Volvo sedan, you could choose the Premier option which offers leather upholstery, the Sensus package navigation package and a moonroof.
The Platinum version comes with dual xenon headlights, Sensus technology package and the incredible Harman Kardon audio system.
2016 Volvo S60 Inscription Engine Options
The sedan will have two engine options. It can be motivated either by a turbocharged 2.0-liter T5 inline-four mill that delivers 240 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque or by a turbocharged 2.5-liter T5 inline-five engine which generates 250 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.
The four-cylinder will be installed beneath the hood of the front-wheel-drive version, while the more powerful five-cylinder is reserved for the all-wheel-drive model. The engines will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2016 Volvo S60 Inscription will certainly stand out, but one of the main differences when compared to the regular S60 won’t be so obvious. The new luxury model will be built in the Volvo’s plant located in Chengdu, China.
2016 Volvo S60 Inscription Release and Price
Released as a 2016 model, the new S60 Inscription will be available this summer. Its starting price is estimated to be around $40,000.
