For 2014, Volvo unveils new S60 and XC60 models. Exemplifying Scandinavian design with simple shapes and surfaces and devoid of unnecessary clutter, both models are receiving facelifts.

The S60 features hidden windshield washer nozzles, new headlamps, a wider grille and the chrome grille surround has gone. At the rear, LED tail lights are added along with integrated exhaust tips to give an updated appearance. The XC60 SUV also sports a new hood and headlamps, along with the black exterior trim removed for a more sophisticated appearance. Boasting lower fuel consumption and boosted performance, both cars finally get paddle shifters to better exploit the performance and the automatic transmissions, particularly on twisty roads.

Volvo also offers its innovative IntelliSafe, which blankets all the active safety systems, as well as Volvo's world-first City Safety technology. Fitted as standard, the latter features Pedestrian Detection. There is also ethe nhanced Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), which is now radar-based, and Road Sign Information in the instrument display.
