Some of the Hottest Cars to Hit the Road

Volvo S60 Black Enterprise

In an attempt to add sexiness to the traditional image of a Volvo being “the safe, but boring car,” Volvo Cars of North America LLC unveiled its 2011 Volvo S60 sport sedan in what it says is signals a revolution in Volvo design. Calling the S60 a “jawdropping” car that has “smile-inducing features,” Volvo expects it to eventually become its top seller in the U.S. The S60 has the slim coupe-like roof line and a new contour on the shoulders on either side of the lower body of the vehicle. Though sleek and aerodynamic, the S60 wouldn’t be a Volvo without increased safety measures. This car comes with a pedestrian detection with full auto brake feature that helps the driver avoid accidents. The car’s radar- and camera-based system can detect pedestrians in front of the car, warn the driver if anyone walks out into its path - and then automatically activate the S60's full braking power if the driver fails to respond in time. The  five-passenger Volvo S60 arrives at dealerships later this fall.

The feature allows drivers to switch from the brake pedal to the accelerator on steep inclines without worrying about tapping the car behind them.
