I am planning to buy a 2012 S60 T6 early next year.

Where is the gas tank located? From a safety standpoint I'd feel better if it were located in front of the rear axle.

The Ford Pinto and now the Jeep Grand Cherokee have it located in back of the rear axle. In some instances, a fire results when these cars are struck in the rear....apparently they are more susceptible then cars with the gas tank located in front of the rear axle.
