Volvo S60
2017
Volvo S60 2017 sedan Trim Shown: 2017 T5 sedan FWD Automatic

The S60 offers fairly agile handling but a stiff ride. A smooth and refined turbo four-cylinder and an eight-speed automatic are new, and they bring respectable performance and fuel economy. Front- and all-wheel drive are available. The interior is quiet and well-finished, with very comfortable front seats. But some controls are unintuitive, the rear seat is tight, and the trunk is small. Safety features include City Safety, which can automatically brake the car to prevent a collision, as well as an optional pedestrian-avoidance system. The AWD Cross Country sedan has raised ground clearance. The Inscription model adds almost 3 inches of rear legroom. Reliability has been average.

2011 Redesign Year
Volvo S60 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Polestar

A 2011 redesign made the S60 much nicer, with agile handling and a taut, steady ride. The standard T5 is pretty lively, but the top-level T6 is quicker and more refined. Among the advanced safety gear is an innovation Volvo called "City Safety". This helps prevent low-speed crashes by scanning the road ahead, sounding an alarm and applying the brakes if you are likely to collide with the car in front of you. This feature has since spread throughout the industry. Today, it is known as forward collision mitigation. The T5's five-cylinder engine can sound gruff, but provides lively acceleration and respectable fuel economy. The interior is quiet, neatly finished and front-seat comfort is excellent. However, the rear seats are best suited for children and trunk capacity is meager.

2001 Redesign Year
Volvo S60 2009 Trim Shown: 2009 Sedan

One of the first of the new breed of attractively styled Volvos, the 2001 S60 sedan was more stylish than the boxy S70 it replaced, but rather disappointing overall. The ride, though better than the S70's, is still a bit stiff and jiggly, and handling is neither agile nor sporty. With its 197-hp turbocharged five-cylinder engine, the 2.4T version provides fairly brisk acceleration. The higher-performance T5 doesn't feel as quick as its 247-hp rating would suggest. An AWD option arrived for 2002. The cabin is quiet, and the seats are very comfortable, though the rear accommodations are cramped. The S60's confusing audio controls were improved for 2005.
