"Our" 2020 Volvo S60
This Volvo S60 R-Design is the first car that my wife, Joy, and I
bought together as a married couple! Yes, that is an Emporio
Armani hoodie that I am wearing. LOL.
This is my new baby outside the dealer when we went to test drive it
and purchase it! The R-Design is the racing model for the Volvo
S60. The car has power folding mirrors! Fancy!
This is a picture of "Allman Lee" near my house. Allman means
"General" in Swedish so I wanted to take the racing model after the old
Duke's of Hazzard car, the General Lee!
The new Volvo models feature "Thor's Hammer" as the daytime running
lights. The car has full LED headlamps which corner too with the
car. Fog Lights are standard as well on this model.
The mirrors do fold in automatically when locked. Moreover, there
is a nice panoramic moonroof.
This car looks amazing! I got the Pebble Gray Metallic color for
the exterior. This car has the $1,600 exterior styling kit too.
This R-Design model has the dual chrome exhausts also.
The R Design badge means this is a fast car! Vroom Vroom!
I got the upgraded 19 inch R Design wheels too on this baby!
The interior is quite luxurious with the Nappa leather sports seats!
Both the driver and passengers have 2 memory settings. Also,
there is a premium Harman/Kardon sound system in the car!
The Swedish flag on the passenger seat along with the R Design badging
on the headrest add to the beauty of the interior.
The dash display looks like an iPad! The front seats are heated
as is the steering wheel! The connected car has built in apps too
like weather updates.
The dash has a navigation system which be updated by the driver via a
SD card or via a download using the car's modem. Yes, there is a
GSM chip in the car!
The driving directions are displayed by the speedometer also as well as
on the head's up display in the windshield.
SXM Satellite radio along with HD radio is included with the car.
I can also stream music via bluetooth or use an iPod. Videos can
be streamed also to the display!
The climate control system is very advanced. I can precondition
the car from my app which allows air to flow in and keep the cabin cool
The four zone climate control system allows the driver and passenger to
have their temperature settings.
Four-zone means the rear passengers can also keep their area of the
cabin at the desired temperature they want.
The rear passengers can adjust their own temperature if I do not lock
it from the front dash.
I have an Amazon Echo Auto in the car so I can have access to my
"Alexa" even when I am away from home. LOL.
The power panoramic moonroof is really cool! The autodimming
mirror in the front has a compass in it along with the Home Link
buttons for the garage door.
The heated leather steering wheell allows me to control the audio
system as well as the adaptive cruise control distance and set the
Pilot Assist so the car can steer for me! Yes, the car can drive
Knight Ridder meet
the General Lee! My new 2020 Volvo S60 R-Design luxury sports
sedan is not only a work of art, it is loaded with the latest in
technological advances including Pilot Assist which means this car can
drive itself! Using adaptive cruise technology coupled together
with cameras that can monitor the lines on roads for lane keeping
assist, this car will steer for me! It is amazing!
I feel I love with this $51,000 Swedish luxury toy
around the end of the summer in 2020. My company gives us access
to special pricing for Volvos as well as other luxury car manufacturers
since we have fleet contracts throughout the world. I ended up
getting his beauty for a great deal! The R-Design is not only the
sports model for the S60 sedan, it has lots of upgrades including the
Nappa leather seats, the four zone climate control system, and piano
black finishes on the exterior. This car also had the technology
package which included the Senus Navigation and the Pilot Assist.
Moreover, this car had the special R-Design exterior styling kit which
was another $1,600 upgrade. The 19 inch R-Design wheels were a
nice upgrade too! The panoramic moonroof is standard with all S60
models. I also had the heated front seats and steering wheel on
this fully loaded car!
