2015 NAIAS: Volvo S60 Inscription image

The Volvo S60 Inscription has been shown in a local premiere during the 2015 North American International Auto Show, in Detroit.

Besides the new generation of the XC90, Volvo has also brought the new S60 Inscription to the 2015 Detroit Motor Show. The model in question is basically a renamed version of the S60L, which is already being sold in China, after being introduced at the Guangzhou Motor Show, back in 2013. The new car will be commercialized in the United States too, but under its new name, the S60 Inscription, and what better automotive event to present it locally than the one currently taking place in Detroit.

The brand new Volvo S60 Inscription is riding on a stretched wheelbase, which has increased by 3.2 inches to a total of 112.5 inches and considering the fact that Chinese simply love long wheelbase versions of just about every car out there, chances are Americans will get used to them too. In the United States, the new model will be adding an extra 3.4 inches of leg roof for the rear passengers which, according to the car manufacturer, is a best in class figure.

Besides the modified distance between the front and the rear axle, the new Volvo S60 Inscription is also getting some Inscription branded tread plates, silk metal detailing in the cabin, Linear Walnut trim, interior accent lighting and 19-inch alloy wheels. In the Premier variant, the model will add the sunroof, Sensus Navigation package and leather upholstery while the Platinum will come with Sensus tech package, bi-xenon headlights and Harman Kardon audio system. The T5 engine will be offered in FWD and AWD.
