About Volvo S60
Are you in the market for a modern, attractive, and spacious luxury sedan? The Volvo S60 is one model you should check out, with a lot of owners raving about its spacious cabin, powerful engine, and inclusion of high-tech safety features.
The Volvo S60 is relatively new, having been rolled out in 2000 to represent the Swedish car maker’s new generation sports sedan. It was targeted at competing against other German cars like the BMW 3-Series as well as the Mercedes-Benz W203. Since its launch, it has undergone multiple facelifts.
So what can you expect from the 2015 Volvo S60?
Here are the specs of the car:
- Engine: 2.0 liter, turbocharged and intercooled turbo I-5 engine producing 241 horsepower @ 5500 rpm
- Passenger capacity: 5 including driver
- Transmission: Eight-speed automatic with manual shifting mode
- Fuel Economy: 25 MPG city driving, 37 MPG highway driving
- 0 to 60: 4.5-5.4 seconds
- Top speed: 140 mph
- Price: Starts at $33,000
When you think of Volvo, the thought of powerful engines and staid exteriors may immediately come to mind.
The Volvo S60 is no different.
The base S60 has a new four cylinder, turbo-charged engine that provides sufficient power, even for discriminating drivers. The said model churns out better fuel economy ratings than the 2014 model at 25 miles per gallon for city driving, and 37 miles per gallon for highway driving. It is hard to find an upscale, midsize sedan that posts that impressive fuel mileage numbers.
If you want more power, opt for the S60 TS Drive-E with its supercharged four-cylinder engine.
Volvo S60 T5 and T6 engine models are front-wheel driven and feature an eight-speed automatic transmission which you’ll love as it shifts very quickly.
The S60 T6 can accelerate from standstill to 60 miles per hour in around 5.4 seconds. The more powerful Polestar can do so in 4.5 seconds, which is very commendable for a luxury sedan.
Regardless of the engine type you opt for, you can expect superior steering and handling in the S60. For the S60 cars that have the Drive E engines, there is a menu system that lets you choose from three different modes- the default Drive, Sport, and Eco plus. As the names suggest, the sport mode provides a quicker response, while the Eco plus translates to better fuel efficiency.
The bottom line is that the S60 mixes the good qualities of a family car and sport sedan. Although the car is not as lightning quick as other sport sedans, it is very responsive when on the road. Plus, it has very spacious interiors as you’ll learn later on.
Once you go inside the car, you will immediately notice the very Volvo-like floating center console that is characteristic of many Volvo cars. The dashboard is simple but functional.
There is enough space up front and in the rear. The seats are substantially bolstered. This makes the S60 a great car for long trips, and even after driving hundreds of miles you’ll surely won’t have any aches or pains due to the long hours of sitting inside the sedan.
From the outside, the back seats would look cramped. However, once you get in you’ll realize that the seats are actually well contoured. It should be able to accommodate at least two tall adults comfortably. The rear back seats also fold forward. There is also enough space for all your stuff at the back.
The S60 has the safety features you expect from a high-end car. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it a five-star rating in safety, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated it ‘good’ on all its test, including the Small-Overlap Front crash test.
Standard safety features include front, side, and side-curtain bags, stability and traction control, and anti-lock brakes. Plus it has the corner traction control that improves grips during aggressive turns, and the Road Sign information system that shows the driver relevant information such as speed limit.
If these standard safety systems are not yet enough for you, you can have other optional programs included in your car like a radar-based system that alerts you of an incoming pedestrian as well as a lane departure warning system. These systems are part of the technology package that Volvo offers as an optional add-on to the car. A standalone option is the blind spot information system that alerts you of other cars or motorcycles in your blind side.
It is not hard to understand why a lot of drivers and car buyers are all agog about the new Volvo S60. It has the things you want in a luxury sedan—powerful engine, excellent interiors, and advanced security systems.
