US Debut for the Volvo S60 Inscription, an LWB Version Imported from China

Besides the S60 Cross Country premium crossover sedan, Volvo’s Detroit Auto Show booth also includes the S60 Inscription long-wheelbase sedan. The latter is said to offer “class-leading rear space,” which is something US customers have consistently requested, according to Volvo.

The Volvo S60 Inscription will be the first model sold in the US imported from China, where it will be built at the company main production facility in Chengdu. Volvo reassures its US customers that the Chinese plant builds cars “in accordance with globally monitored quality standards such as the Volvo Cars Manufacturing System,” which means it complies with the automaker’s global quality engineering, quality audit and quality assurance standards.

Sold as the S60 L in China, the model has a 3.2 inches (81mm) longer wheelbase than that of the standard S60. The S60 Inscription will be exported to the US beginning with the second quarter of this year.

Volvo didn’t offer details about the engine lineup for the US, but in China the Volvo S60 L is offered with two turbocharged five-cylinder gasoline engines, a 180hp 2.0-liter and a 213hp 2.0-liter T5.
