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.
