Volvo - A Traditional car brand that is all too rare a guest on our blog. We want to introduce a model car in which MotorCity convinced us immediately, the 2015 Volvo S60 in 1:18 scale. You want know why? It is the engine, because the depth of the engine compartment, which Motor city provides us with, is markedly different from the vast majority of other Model car manufacturers; even the well-known. Motor City has a drive set without trim, allowing an insight of the cylinder head, hoses and radiator and do not forget the dipstick. The whole arrangement then also in four colors, so that the fan well-made model car for cooler northern lights can perform a dance of joy: Full kudos for this engine room at MotorCity who takes the turbocharged four-cylinder T5 with 180 kW / 245 hp as a model.
Good build quality, consistent appearance
But the vast remainder of the model car to be proud of: The Body in die cast zinc records the appearance of the model to accurately; the look of the model corresponds perfectly to that of the Volvo S60 as it is currently in the showrooms. Given the facilities are brilliant: all 4 doors open; as - of course - the hood and the lid from the luggage compartment. Exceptional: The sunroof can be erected, the mirrors are to work! The replicas of the headlights and taillights nestle in the exemplary Diecast environment and are designed for high-quality impression the model gives, responsible. The functional parts also exhibit a high degree of accuracy.
Great finish the interior
The door handles are designed as separate patch parts: Let's open the door and look in the interior. The overwhelmed with the dashboard and the seats. The instrument panel and air vents delight with a three-dimensional, as is immediately apparent. Shape and appearance vote anyway, but you as a viewer the impression that you hold with the S60 1:18 something even more real in your hands than just a model car. The seats agree formally as well, but that the seating surfaces a different color wear than the base is further evidence of attention to detail. Very nice is also the multifunction steering wheel, which acts on the working steering model. The small Volvo is available in Chrystal White Pearl and Seashell Silver Metallic.
Top grade for the Volvo S60
With so much praise, it is no surprise that the S60 secures the top note 1. We do not know what could be done better with a model car of mass production. Only one thing we definitely know of today: We will hold more for models of MotorCity out. The prototype for our model is on the market and the second-generation S60 since of 2010. 2 years ago, the middle class of Volvo received a face lift, we find here in the model. The internally Y20 called S60 is produced in Belgium and is available with petrol engines of 110 kW / 150 hp to 225 kW / 306 hp and diesel engines from 84 kW / 114 hp to 165 kW / 225 PS; latter quantity refers to the Biturbo four-cylinder, which is to have only since April, 2015.
Good Standard on the prototype
Not only the model, but also the prototype is lavish. Standard equipment includes 6 partly adaptive airbags, side impact protection system, the Whiplash Protection System WHIPS and the rollover protection system from Volvo. Likewise factory here are an electromechanical parking brake, the vehicle dynamics control ESC, the Trailer Stability Control TSA, a tire pressure monitoring system, the hill start assist and a two-zone climate control, radio and CD with 6 speakers.
