On top of the usual enhancements the Lux version adds leather upholstery and Piano Black inlays to the interior, which also serve to enhance residual values as well as adding luxury, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a rear parking camera. Also added to the Lux version is Volvo’s active information display which ensures the most important information is relayed to the driver at all times.
It looks like driving for business could get – well – more luxurious.

THE Volvo V60 and S60 model ranges get a little boost of luxury for 2017 with the Volvo V60 and S60 Business Edition Lux versions.
The Business Edition Lux combines the practicality and connectivity of the standard Business Edition and adds an extra layer of executive panache to broaden the appeal of an already popular specification.
The existing Business Edition accounts for nearly one third of all “60” sales and with an impressive choice of variants, good equipment levels, and low BIK tax rates it’s not hard to see why.
As you would expect from a Volvo the V60/S60 has a solid reputation among private and business drivers alike. The Business Edition already provides the class leading safety features that Volvo is renowned for.
The IntelliSafe system covers everything from automatic high beam, pedestrian and cyclist detection, City Safety automatic braking, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring. Also included as standard are active headlights, park assist, and road sign monitoring systems.
The safety systems are complemented by an equally technological interior. Volvo has aimed the Business Edition at the executive level company car driver so the accompanying specification is suitably impressive.
The cloud-based Sensus Connect system works with the SatNav to allow you to find and pay for parking spaces before you reach your destination. It will also connect to your smartphone and even help you to book servicing appointments at a Volvo dealer.
Added to that the Business Edition also includes LED running lights, cruise control, electronic climate control, and a premium infotainment system with DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity.
Volvo says the Business Edition “strikes the perfect balance between class-leading safety, connectivity, power and efficiency”, and after listening to customer feedback has also uncovered demand for a more luxurious version. Hence the Business Edition Lux.
