He said –

The Volvo S60 T6 gives 300 hp from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and it is going to be a racecar for the roads. It will be introduced in July this year.

Exterior wise, the S60 T6 will remain identical to the the regular diesel models. It’s sporty characteristics are highlighted with large alloy rims, and large dual exhaust tips.
