Volvo S60L to get three-cylinder turbo power in China

The China-only Volvo S60L will become available with a ‘T3’ 1.5 liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. The Volvo S60L is a stretched version of the Volvo S60, it was launched on the Chinese car market in December 2013. The T3  engine is not available in the Volvo S60 anywhere else and only used in the Volvo V40 at the moment. The engine has an output of 180hp and 265nm.The other engines for the S60L, a a 182hp 2.0 turbo and a 214hp 2.0 turbo, will continue.

The three-cylinder engine will make the S60L much cheaper as cars in China are taxed, among other things, on engine capacity. The T3 will thus become the entry-level car of the line-up with price expected to start around 220.000 yuan. The current range starts at 269.900 yuan and ends at 330.900 yuan. The Volvo S60L T3 will be launched in early Q2.

Volvo S60L Hybrid will debut on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show

The Volvo S60L Hybrid will debut on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show and launch on the China car market later this year. The Volvo S60L is a China-only China-made stretched variant of the Volvo S60.

The S60L competes with other China-made China-only stretched sedans such as the Audi A4L, the BMW 3Li, and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C-Class L, none of which offers a hybrid, giving Volvo an unique selling point in a hard battled market.

The S60L Hybrid will be powered by a 200hp 2.0 turbo petrol engine mated to a 67hp electric motor. The combination petrol-electric is unique for China, as Volvo only offers a diesel-electric hybrid in the rest of the world. Price of the Volvo S60L Hybrid will start around 320.000 yuan.
