No rest time for Volvo Design Chief Steve Mattin after bringing the XC60 Concept into the world. Steve has been working on the next S60, and these first renderings by our neighbours Auto Motor & Sport from Sweden look very promising indeed.

AMS had a friendly chat with Steve at the Geneva Show and managed to catch some glimpses of the next S60 design sketches, which they then sent over to their GCI artist, the attached pictures show the result, a bold new design for the S60, which is to mingle with the BMW 3-series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-class crowd. With the S40 growing up, and the S80 already in the line-up, the S60 is looking to stand out and become it's own model, you can expect a V60 too.

US headquarters delayed the S60 programme for 6 months, due to funding problems, but as things stand now we should be seeing the S60 on the roads in 2009/2010. It should also sell better than the current version, no big news there, with an expected 150,000 (450k to 600k) unit increase.

Big thanks go out to Pär.
