Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Capable of producing 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque.

Speaking to Indian Autos Blog today at the launch of the second generation Volvo XC90, Tomas Ernberg, Managing Director of Volvo Auto India, has confirmed that the powerful S60 T6 petrol will launch in the country in July 2015.

Volvo S60 T6 for India
Volvo India had offered the T6 variant with the 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine when the S60 was launched in 2011.

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.

The main USP of the S60 T6 is the 2.0-liter, direct-injected four-cylinder mated to an eight-speed transaxle, which sends power to the front wheels. To be precise, it produces a whopping 302 hp and 400 Nm of torque, enabling the T6 to do 0-100 kph in just 5.4 seconds (international specification).

The S60 T6 will admissibly be a niche product for Indian customers looking for a performance-oriented vehicle. It also marks the reentry of the S60 into the petrol market, which is offered in two diesel-engined specifications.
