Volvo XC60 Makes North American Debut, 2018 S90 U.S. Pricing & New Features Announced  Volvo Cars debuted the all-new 2018 XC60 and the 2018 S90 with new features and pricing details at the New York International Auto Show today. The all-new XC60 features an expressive, athletic take on the design language introduced with the award winning XC90. The 2018 S90 will mark its second model year with the introduction of a new, longer wheelbased adding 4 inches of additional rear leg room, which is best in class. The 2018 S90 also debuts a 400 horespower T8 Twin-Engine Plug-In Electric Hyrbid propulsion system.

The 2018 XC60 replaces the current XC60 which has enjoyed a nine year run, with sales increasing globally within the last year. Over 1 Million XC60s have been sold globally and represents 30% of Volvo Cars' global sales.

'The Volvo XC60 is an important car for Volvo in the United States,' said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President of the Americas; President and CEO of Volvo Car USA, 'It provides a new and more athletic attitude to the design language that was first shown in the 90 series cars.'

Elements of the new Volvo design language, including Thor's Hammer LED headlamps, soft Nappa Leather and a 9 inch center touch screen bring a new standard of luxury to the mid-sized SUV market.

'The XC60 is an SUV not designed to look down on others but to drive. The exterior has an athletic sculpture with a subtle, timeless quality. The interior is a masterful composition of well-resolved architecture, beautiful materials and the very latest technology - all perfectly blended together. The XC60 provides a true Scandinavian experience which will make our customers feel special,' said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President, Design at Volvo Car Group.

The XC60's performance will match the vehicle's muscular looks. The T8 Twin Engine Plug-In Electric Hybrid will offer 400 horsepower. A gas-powerd T6 turbo-and-super charged engine will provide 316 horesepower and a T5 turbo engine will deliver 250 horsepower.

Steer Assist has been added to the ground-breaking City Safety system. A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo's Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.

'We have focused on building a car that can deliver pleasure to all of your senses – from a commanding view of the road ahead in a beautifully appointed and calm cabin, to a safe, inspired and confident ride,' said Henrik Green, Senior Vice President Product & Quality at Volvo Car Group. 'We've paid particular attention to making life easier for our customers by providing them with the creature comforts and services that take the hassle out of everyday life.'
