Overview of the Volvo S60

Learn about the Volvo S60

Summary

The Volvo S60 has gained a well-deserved reputation for its above-average fuel economy, reliability and accessible luxury. The luxury sedan has taken many forms since its 2001 inception: There are both all- and front-wheel drive variants, and with the 2011 redesign drivers got the option to upgrade to a turbocharged six-cylinder engine (previously only a turbocharged five-cylinder was available). Volvo also added an eco-conscious hybrid version as part of the S60's 2019 refresh. For all generations and trims, safety is a priority—so the S60 is an excellent choice for those who value peace of mind as well as performance.

Safety

Volvo is well known for its safety features, and the S60 is no exception. The vehicle has driver and passenger airbags as well as front, side and rear head airbags to further minimize injury in the event of a collision. Even on older models, safety features aren't lacking. S60s from 2007 come standard with:

  • Stability control, which detects when there's a loss of traction
  • Anti-whiplash seats for added protection in the event of a collision
  • Full-length side-curtain airbags

In later model years, you can find Volvo's City Safety automatically applies brakes to avoid low-speed collisions—standard after the 2011 redesign, as well as advanced upgrades like lane-keep assist to help you stay in the correct lane—standard in 2019, along with rear-view camera, as well as rain-sensing wiper option adjusts speed automatically depending on the amount of water on the windshield.

Interior

The S60 certainly looks the part of a luxury sedan on the inside. That said, the driver information display is noted for not being intuitively placed, even on second-generation (2010-2018) versions of the S60, such as the 2018 edition. However, this was addressed in 2019, making the infotainment system and general driver display easier to see and use. Visibility is good across all generations thanks to thin roof pillars. And build quality is solid—even on older, first-generation models (2000-2009).

Technology

While you might find technology lacking on first-generation models, they still come with a stereo with Dolby surround sound options. The second generation and most recent models include features such as Wi-Fi hotspot capability and full smartphone integration. The 2019 vehicle also has the Volvo On Call app, which lets you locate, lock and even warm up the vehicle remotely. 

Space

The S60 can seat up to five people and has between 11 and 13 cubic feet of trunk space, depending on model year. It's perfect for carrying your weekend shopping, and there's ample head and legroom for both drivers and passengers. Things can get a bit tight in the back, however, depending on trim. The longer wheelbase of the T5 trim is the best option if you regularly carry passengers, as legroom is improved.

Comfort

Overall, the S60 delivers a quiet and comfortable ride whether you're on a long haul trip or darting through the city. While more performance-focused powertrain trims such as the T6 have more power under the hood, handling and responsiveness is adequate across all S60 options.

Frequently asked questions about the Volvo S60

The Volvo S60 gained an all-wheel drive option called the Volvo S60 AWD a year after the model's 2001 launch.

The Volvo S60 was produced in the U.S. and China. However, the U.S. became the sole producer of the S60 with the opening of its South Carolina plant in 2019.

The 2019 Volvo S60 starts at $42,400, while its highest trim—Inscription—starts at $53,900. Older models around 10 years old cost approximately $10,000.

The S60 is considered an extremely safe car. U.S. News and World Report awarded a safety rating of 10 to the 2011 Volvo S60 and all subsequent models.

The Volvo S60 has five seats. On certain models, the rear seats can be folded down for extra cargo space.
