    I had sort of assumed that was what Volvo managers were for.

    Must be nice work if you can get it - decent salary, elk benefits, midnight sun, you don't have to do any work and someone else gets the blame when it goes wrong.
    I meant that they are Ford-choosen managers. And after all for the most important decisions they do have to take into account Ford manager's opinion.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    I would say it is hard to lay blame to Ford entirely - to what degree Ford is responsible may be very hard to gauge.

    I might have grown a bit more accustomed to this shape.
    But still in comparison to the XC90, this XC60 is a bit lame.

    The new Volvo S60, V60 and XC60:

    Major renewal boosts the dynamic appearance and appeal of the Volvo 60 cluster

    • New design focusing on quality and attention to detail
    • Fuel consumption down to a class-leading 4.0 l/100km and CO2 emissions of just 106 g/km in the Volvo S60
    • New, more comfortable sport seats
    • Sensus Connected Touch system with unique on-line possibilities
    • Permanent high beam with groundbreaking technology


    "This is the most extensive development of existing models in our company's history. Each of the enhancements is designed around our customers' needs. We have focused on quality and attention to detail in order to give these dynamic models a major boost and sharpen their competitiveness," says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy & Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Car Group. He continues: "The S60 and XC60 are our best-selling models in several important markets, and the innovative V60 Plug-in Hybrid has got off to a flying start. We have been listening very carefully to our customers in order to make improvements that ensure that we make these successful cars more attractive."

    Emphasised attention to detail

    Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed.

    This is evident in the redesigned interior and exterior of the new 60 cars.
