Chinese-Built Long-Wheelbase Volvo S60 Coming Stateside


Would you buy it?

The Volvo S60 is a pretty good-looking car, and it offers all of the performance, luxury, reliability and safety that American customers have come to expect from the Swedish manufacturer. So a little bit more of that goodness - in the form of an extended-wheelbase version - should be an appealing idea for American customers, shouldn't it? But will buyers in the United States still be drawn to the car knowing that it was imported to America from China?

Volvo has just announced it will import the Chengdu-built S60L to the US and Russian markets, where it will ride on the same 2,856 mm wheelbase as the one it's offered with in China. Like it or not, the move to Chinese imports won't be limited to this model, as Volvo will also be manufacturing the US-spec 2015 XC90 – expected to be one of its best-selling models in America – at the same factory.
