The S60 gets an all-new infotainment system where information from the audio unit, navigation system, mobile phone and other functions is presented on a five-inch or seven-inch colour screen in the upper part of the centre console. The screen is installed high to make it easy for the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road.
“We are one of the few manufacturers to give the driver access to all infotainment functions via controls in the steering wheel,” says Tomas Ahlborg, Project Director for the all-new S60.
The audio experience in the all-new S60 has been enhanced compared with previous models.
“Our most advanced system, Premium Sound, has a class-D digital 5x130W amplifier with circuits from Sweden’s Anaview, Dolby Digital in combination with Dolby Pro Logic II Surround, the award-winning MultEQ from Audyssey Laboratories and 12 loudspeakers. All this creates an audio experience of absolute world class,” says Tomas Ahlborg.
The Volvo S60 is one of the first car models in the world to use Audyssey Laboratories MultEQ technology, the standard for room equalization in the home and professional theatre markets. MultEQ removes distortion caused by the car cabin’s acoustics, enabling crisp, clear sound with improved soundstage for everyone in the car.
In addition to the top-of-the line Premium Sound, the all-new S60 is available with a choice of three other audio systems.
