Volvo S60
Volvo S60
The S60 is a concept car, but it likely resembles something we'll see in Volvo showrooms in the fairly near future. It's powered by a new four-cylinder version of Ford's new EcoBoost engines.

EcoBoost is Ford's name for a new line of turbocharged engines with sophisticated fuel injection. Six-cylinder versions will hit the market soon on a number of Ford cars and crossovers.

The engines, which run on regular gasoline, offer the performance of much engines while using much less fuel, according to Ford, Volvo's parent company.

To help fuel economy even more, the S60 concept car has automatic start-stop, meaning the engine shuts down completely whenever the car stops. It also has a "grill shutter" that closes the front grill when its air flow isn't needed to improve aerodynamics.
