Volvo's new S60 model is set for a November launch in New Zealand, according to Waikato Times (18/8/00). The new car, created to compete against medium-sized executive cars like the BMW 3 series and Audi A4, is built on the same platform as the V70 estate model and S80. Designed at Volvo's Californian studios, prices have yet to be finalised although they are expected to start in the mid-$70,000 range, says the report.
