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.
