Report: Volvo adds another version of S60 to bridge gap between base and top spec

2011 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design

In an effort to expand sales, Volvo has just added a new model to the S60 lineup. Positioned directly in between the higher level T6 and the base front-wheel drive T5 model is a new all-wheel drive S60 T5.

Prices haven’t been announced, but considering that there’s a $7,150 difference between the base T5’s $32,175 and the top of the line all-wheel drive T6’s $39,325 sticker price, it should be right smack dab in the middle.

Volvo US’s president, John Maloney apparently released the news in an interview after explaining that he wishes to have the S60 compete with models like the BMW 328i xDrive and the Audi A4 Quattro.
