2011 Volvo S60 – Click above for image gallery

The debut of the 2011 Volvo S60 is still a few months away, but the safety-oriented Swedes have released a teaser video on Facebook of the new S60 and it's shapely duds, finally giving us a complete view of Volvo's bread-and-butter sedan.

Inspired by the S60 Concept shown at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, many of the elements that debuted on the design study have made a successful transition to the sedan, including the coupe-like roof, sculpted swage line and organic, angular front fascia. We're particularly smitten by the taillamps, which evolve the familiar Volvo shape and incorporate a set of lighted tubes that compliment the heavily revised rump and its quaint spoiler.

Unfortunately, Volvo omitted any interior shots, so we'll just have to wait for the S60's debut in Geneva for a glimpse inside. In the meantime, make the jump for the video and check out the gallery of screen caps below for a series of stills.

      Why must they show it in the ugliest color possible???
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's a pretty decent looking car unless you see it from the front or back. Which is 2/3 of the car. Oh well.

      let see if the new BMW 3 series is good or not.

      It looks kinda, I don't know... "puffy" to me. Not Sean Combs puffy, but water-weight puffy. Like the new LaCrosse. I'll pass. On a Volvo-related note, why do reviews always say that Volvo makes the most comfortable seats? I test drove a new S80 recently and I got a cramp just sitting in the parking lot waiting for the guy to come out with the dealer plates. I think they're horrendous compared to the 5-series or A6 seats.

        Huh. The seats in my car (2005 S60) are frickin' amazing.

      It's not bad... however, it looks exactly like the Insignia. So much that you could change an Insignia with a bumper/grille/trunk to look exactly like this car. I'm not sure what to make of that...

      It´s MAGIC!!!!! My next car (or perhaps a V60)!!!

      That looks good, I want to see the inside.
      • 5 Years Ago
      looks good but the 5 series and the e-classe are better looking cars

      The tail lights remind me of an Edsel.

      "Volvo. They're boxy but they're good." The line from the movie "Admen." Is it me, or does anyone else remember that.

      Looks like a Buic.

      I see a combination of first-gen Lexus GS and the current Civic. Both nice cars, but not Volvos. Leaves me cold.
        • 5 Years Ago
        And LaCrosse. Definitely.
