Now in its second generation,
the Volvo S60 is a good-looking saloon car that comes laden with safety
equipment and provides a comfortable cabin for up to five travellers. The S60
is an executive-level car that offers a genuine alternative to vehicles
produced by certain premium German car manufacturers.
The four-door S60 sports a sleek design which, in tandem with the car’s assertive stance, makes it an attractive addition to any household driveway. The vehicle rides on lightweight 16-inch alloy wheels as standard, each boasting a striking five-spoke motif. The S60’s range of exterior lighting includes LED daytime running lights, which provide vibrant illumination and a distinctive light signature.
The car’s cabin is just as attractively assembled and well-built as its exterior. Furthermore, the S60 offers enviable levels of comfort thanks to large, supportive seats, as well as forgiving suspension that allows the car to seemingly glide over the bumpiest of surfaces. The vehicle’s well-appointed interior is well-insulated too, protecting occupants from engine sounds and buffeting winds, for example. The S60 makes even the longest of journeys feel as relaxing as possible, ensuring that you’ll finish each trip feeling surprisingly refreshed.
A 2.0-litre petrol engine is fitted as standard with entry-level Business Edition trims. This produces 190bhp, 300Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately seven seconds – and delivers up to 50.4mpg and a 131g/km CO2 emissions figure. Optimal fuel efficiency is returned by another 2.0-litre 190bhp diesel unit, which is also available for Business Editions grades. This variant manages as much as 72.8mpg and produces emissions as low as 102g/km. No matter which engine you select, it will come with a fuel-saving auomatic start-stop system.
Technology and safety
All S60 models feature climate control as standard, providing an agreeable in-cabin temperature at all times. An eight-speaker sound system, complete with CD/DVD player, AM/FM tuner and DAB digital radio, is the perfect accompaniment for each trip. Bluetooth connectivity is included too, enabling you to stream your favourite audio content – and enjoy hands-free telephoning. Last but not least, a satellite navigation system helps you get to your destination on time, and features a seven-inch colour display screen, offering 3D mapping, traffic updates and more.
The S60 is replete with driver aids and passive safety features. These include Electronic Stability Control, for optimal handling on slippery surfaces, and Collision Avoidance System, which detects and helps prevent potential impact from vehicles ahead.
