The car’s spyshot reveals design references to company’s larger models.

Volvo boss Håkan Samuelsson gave us a preview of the all-New S60. The image he showed shows a camouflaged sedan undergoing testing in Norway.

Samuelsson said the car will go to production later this year. It will be produced at the company’s new factory in South Carolina, US, which can make a maximum of 100,000 cars per year. The car will be built using the company’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). The V60 will also be built on the same platform and the front styling of the S60 will likely be identical.

Specs of the new S60 will be similar to the XC60 and it will be powered by the same engines as the V60. This means there will be a 158hp and 190hp D3 and D4 units, as well as a 245hp T5 petrol, while the range will be topped by a 340hp T6 Twin Engine plug-in, and the company could introduce a T4 petrol later

Like all Volvos, the car will be loaded with safety kit from the XC60, meaning that when it hits the market in early 2019, it’s likely to be the safest car in the class.
