24 February 2011

Volvo has introduced ultra-frugal DRIVe versions of its new S60 and V60.

Powering both models is a 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual ’box with stop-start technology. The Volvo S60 DRIVe will produce CO2 emissions of 114 g/km and achieve 65.7mpg, with the larger V60 variant emitting 119 g/km CO2 and achieving 62.8mpg.

Available to order now, prices for the S60 start from £23,495 for the base ES model.

Nine variants are available with DRIVe technology, seven of which emit less than 120g/km. In spring 2011, new DRIVe models be made available in the V70 and S80.
