Attention, company car drivers! No longer do you need to simply choose between the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, for a new premium executive saloon has arrived.

This is the 2019 Volvo S60, which the Swedish brand has lined up as "a true driver's car" – without abandoning its traditional values of ride comfort, spaciousness and interior luxury.

One thing has been consigned to history by the third-generation S60, however: diesel power. Instead, it will offer turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engines with 246bhp and 306bhp.

Or, for potentially greater efficiency, there are petrol-electric plug-in hybrid powertrains, with 385bhp and 409bhp. The latter option is available in the sporting Polestar Engineered model, which also gets revamped wheels, suspension and brakes.

Inside, the new S60 features a fully loaded 9.0in touchscreen infotainment system and leather seats. Standard safety technology includes automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance, while a semi-autonomous driving system is on the options list.

The S60 will go on sale in the next few months, priced from around £32,000.

If you're interested in the S60, come along for an exclusive preview on Friday 1 February in Daventry, Northamptonshire.

You'll get a hands-on preview of the car, as well as a Q&A opportunity with the Volvo team, before being interviewed for our magazine and website.
