Overview of the Volvo S60

Learn about the Volvo S60


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.
