Volvo has released a teaser of its upcoming S60, which is set to debut on June 20, 2018. This comes after a recent announcement that the sedan will be the first model to benefit from the new Polestar Engineered upgrade programme.

The brief video gives us an overhead view of the S60, allowing us to see the differences from its wagon sibling, the V60. The most obvious is the rear, which follows a standard sedan design with a large rear window.

It isn’t too far-fetched to assume the S60 will closely mimic the larger S90 in this area, a theory supported by spyshots and leaked photos. This new shape also requires new windows to be fitted, including the glass on the sunroof. The roof rails that were present on the V60 are also omitted on the S60.

As for the face, this S60 has undergone the Polestar Engineered treatment as the badge on the grille clearly indicates. It looks rather sporty too, with a bumper design that is close to the Polestar 1 plug-in hybrid rather than the V60 – note the size of the corner inlets and lower apron. Yes, the brand’s Thor’s Hammer LED daytime running lights are present here as well.

Based on the details from the Polestar Engineered announcement, the T8 Twin Engine powertrain will be available for the S60. The line-up should also include other petrol options like a T6 and T5, but Volvo has said the new S60 will not come with a diesel engine.

We’ll know more about the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class competitor when the S60 makes its debut next week. For now, do you like what you see?
