They have listed many things as O=Optional in the feature list. If someone could garner the pricing of these options?

Congrats for the rocket. There's nothing like it in it's category at the moment and as GTO remarked it competes with segment above (5 series, E class and A6). Post some pics. What's the real fuel economy BTW?

Errm..there is. If you meant that in terms of performance that is...
Its something i own & its a diesel and also competes with cars 1 class bigger whilst being quicker than most of them.
Audi A4 3.0 TDi
If you've read about it, you might know what its capable of & with our quality of petrol, its also quicker than the Volvo rocket.

I'm talking about petrol variants i.e. Audi 3.2 FSI
3.0 TDI is something different but then we can't compare 3.0 TDI to T6

Yes, The do have a new MD, Mr. Tomas Ernberg. He was earlier with Volvo cars Dubai. The chap is relatively young, and he seems quite aggressive in his intent of making India a success story for Volvo.

They have a cash rich owner in Geely of China, thus the company now has new found capital to develop new models. This i think is a good thing. Volvo was not exactly highest on Ford's agenda.

I just checked the rates in Chennai for XC 60 & it is decent value for money

XC60 D3 163 Bhp Kinetic. Rs 41,20,000/- On Road Chennai
XC60 D3 163 Bhp Summum. Rs 44,77,500/- On Road Chennai

It is less than Audi Q5 2.0 and i hope we see more of Volvo's on the road now

Spoke to the Mumbai dealer in Thane. The S60 D3 is expected only after another 2 weeks. Presently he has in stock the topline T6 petrol. The D3 comes with an auto tranny, xenons and cruise control.

All of a sudden the S60 looks a lot more VFM now. Now only if Volvo starts to concentrate on expanding their Dealer network, the Germans may see a whiff of competition heading their way.

It's a lovely crossover this XC 60. I hope with this new D3 engine, it gets greater appreciation by our public and more of these become visible on our roads! Volvo really need to up their presence with more dealerships and service centers too, for their vehicles to catch on here. Personally I love their close attention to safety and I do like their slightly quirky design too.
But despite their best efforts, if the XC60 costs 44 lacs in Chennai, then it will probably cost about 47 lacs in Bangalore, which is still way too expensive. I think this price is high because one can get an LR Freelander2 for roughly the same price and most people here who go for size, street presence and brand, would probably go for the LR over the XC.

Until now i haven't had a single scratch under the hood as of yet *touchwood*. Maybe I am not that bad of a driver.

I can now dream of owning one of these babies for real. Heck, I wouldn't mind going pre-owned as well, but I know it'll be a struggle to find any up for sale in the used car market. One can hope.

And yes, kau_therock, you owe us an ownership review! Details please, with plenty of pictures too. We want to know your tale!
I will surely post a review. This is surely going to test my writing skills since I haven't reviewed anything for ages now.

I own a 530D too and I can surely say this feels way above it. The sheer quality ( could be since it is a CBU) is breath-taking. Don't even get me started on the vroom. Lol.

Interesting to see Shreenath open up a Volvo dealership in the Western Suburbs in Mumbai. They've opened up just near JVPD Circle. Earlier they were at Thane only.

Guess Volvo is trying harder now to build a place in the Indian industry.

The S60 seems to be sweetly priced and if they're improving their dealership networks along-with aggressive marketing, lets see how far it goes.

It will be interesting to see Volvo's numbers in the next couple of years !


Cheers,
Yogesh.

Hey guys, I am looking to buy a S60 Kinetic and am looking for feedback from owners. Am currently worried about all the comments on the spares and post sales service. How good is it. Also any information on the discount that they can offer? I am being told 3 Lakhs for the S60 Kinetic (buying it on company lease). Owners, do help a possible fellow Volvoite

Volvo India To Launch XC60 & S60 Facelift In October.

Volvo is likely to revise prices upwards on the facelifted models
