Here's When The All-New 2019 Volvo S60 Will Break Cover


Volvo will be presenting the 2019 S60 at its new factory in South Carolina next week.

After Volvo updated the V60 wagon for the first time in nearly a decade, its sedan sibling, the ageing S60, will also receive a long overdue update after being on sale since 2010. While the V60 broke cover earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Volvo has confirmed the third-generation S60 will make its world debut later this month on June 20. No, it won’t be at an auto show. Instead, the reveal will take place at Volvo’s new manufacturing facility in Charlestown, South Carolina, where the 2019 S60 will be produced

That may sound like an unusual location to reveal a significant new model, but Volvo recently announced it will no longer be attending major auto shows. Instead, the automaker will host "purpose-specific" events. For example, Volvo unveiled the XC40 at the 2017 Milan Fashion Week instead of a traditional auto show. As part of this new strategy, Volvo has also confirmed it won't attending the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and has no plans to return in the future. We are not saying never to car shows. We expect industry events like the Geneva Motor Show to continue evolving and we may return in future," Björn Annwall, senior vice president of strategy, brand and retail at Volvo Cars, said.

As for the 2019 Volvo S60, the automaker hasn’t shared many details about its upcoming sedan. A leaked photo shows it will look like a shrunken version of the S90, just as the V60 resembles a downsized V90. Traditionally, Volvo has adopted a Russian doll design philosophy, and the new S60 will be no different. As a result, the interior should look identical to the V60, which features a large Sensus Connect infotainment system and driver assists. Powertrains from the V60 should also carry over, which include a T5 FWD providing 250 hp and a T6 AWD with 316 hp.
