For 2016, Volvo pushes the envelope for the S60 luxury sedan by introducing all-new premium Inscription models. For the first time customers have a choice of the popular standard length S60 lineup or new Inscription with its impressive three-inch stretch in wheelbase that delivers a class-leading 36.5 inches of legroom for rear seat passengers – three inches greater than the standard wheelbase models.

New S60 Inscription

The new Volvo S60 Inscription offers all of the safety, luxury and superb driving dynamics that buyers expect from the marque along with the ability for rear seat passengers to cross their legs and enjoy the ride like never before. Unlike larger long-wheelbase models from competitors, the S60 retains its nimble exterior proportions while continuing its heritage of highly attainable pricing.
