How Much Does the Volvo S60 Cost

The 2020 Volvo S60 starts at $36,050, which is about average for a 

luxury small car. Higher trim levels with the standard engine retail 

for a little under $43,000. S60 models with the mid range engine 

run between $40,550 and $47,400, while the S60 plug-in-hybrid 

model starts at $55,400. An S60 with most options added can cost 

more than $58,300.

2020 Volvo S60 Interior

How Many People Does the S60 Seat?

The Volvo S60 sedan can seat five people. The comfortable front 

seats have ample side bolstering and offer lots of power 

adjustments to help you find a relaxing position.

It’s classified as a luxury small car, but the S60 is roomy. There’s 

plenty of headroom, even under the standard moon roof, and the 

second row has plenty of legroom for taller adults to stretch out.

Synthetic leather upholstery is standard. You can opt for goodies 

like full Nappa leather upholstery and heated front and rear seats. 

Ventilated, massaging front seats are also optional.

S60 and Child Car Seats

There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the 

S60’s rear outboard seats, as well as an upper tether on the rear 

middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 

system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for ease of use. 

The lower anchors are behind plastic flaps, which make them easy 

to find. However, it can be difficult to maneuver your hands 

around the anchors to attach the car-seat straps.

S60 Interior Quality

Clean lines, quality materials, and a lack of clutter all help make 

this one of the most attractive cabins in the segment.

S60 Cargo Space

The S60’s trunk has 11.6 cubic feet of space. That’s a little below 

average for the class, but it's enough to handle lots of grocery or 

shopping bags. The trunk is wide but a little shallow. Standard 

split-folding rear seats allow you to haul longer items, and a hands-

free power trunk lid is optional.

By comparison, the Audi A4 has 13 cubic feet of space. The BMW 

3 Series sedan has one of the largest cargo holds in the class at 17 

cubic feet.

S60 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

Volvo’s Sensus infotainment system features a vertical 9-inch 

touch screen that dominates the center stack and dashboard and 

acts as command center for most of the car’s functions. However, 

it’ll likely take some time getting used to this interface. There are 

few physical knobs, and simple actions like entering navigation 

can require multiple steps.

Standard features include remote start, a moon roof, a 12.3-inch 

digital instrument display, dual-zone automatic climate control, 

Android Auto, Apple Car Play, satellite radio, and two USB ports. 

Optional features include navigation, a 14-speaker Harman Kardon 

premium audio system, and a Bowers & Wilkins premium stereo.

S60 Performance

S60 Engine: Keeps Improving

The Volvo S60 is available with one of three power trains. The T5 

base engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 

250 horsepower. That’s a good amount for a sports sedan, and it 

should be enough for most shoppers.

The T6 adds a supercharger to the base engine to achieve 316 

horsepower. This twin charged engine has muscular low-end 

power thanks to the supercharger, which also covers any turbo lag.

The S60 comes in a T8 plug-in-hybrid variant that adds an electric 

motor for a combined 400 horses.

All models are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It 

mostly snaps off timely and predictable shifts, though some critics 

say downshifts could be more precise.

S60 Gas Mileage: Admirable

According to the EPA, the S60 with its standard engine returns 23 

mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. Those numbers are 

pretty good for a luxury small car, but rivals like the BMW 3 

Series and Audi A4 are more efficient. Those German competitors 

are among the class leaders for fuel economy. The S60’s twin 

charged T6 engine gets an estimated 21 mpg in the city and 32 

mpg on the highway.

At the time of writing, we do not have official EPA estimates for 

the T8 plug-in hybrid. However, the nearly identical 2019 S60 

plug-in hybrid earned a combined 74 MPGe and has an all-electric 

driving range of 22 miles.

S60 Ride and Handling: Cool As a Cucumber

The S60 prioritizes a relaxed, calm ride over outright driving 

engagement. It can soak up large bumps in the road with ease, 

though models with a sport suspension feel a little stiffer. With the 

T5’s standard front-wheel drive, the S60 isn’t as athletic as sport-

oriented rear-wheel-drive rivals. All-wheel drive is optional. In 

most situations, the steering feels light and disconnected from the 


S60 Reliability

Is the Volvo S60 Reliable?

The 2020 Volvo S60 has a below-average predicted reliability 

rating of 2.5 out of five from J.D. Power.

Volvo S60 Warranty

Volvo covers the S60 with a four-year/50,000-mile warranty.

2020 Volvo S60 Safety

S60 Crash Test Results

At the time of writing, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety 

Administration nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has 

crash tested the 2020 Volvo S60.

The nearly identical 2019 S60 earned the highest score of Good in 

all six IIHS crash tests, as well as the top rating of Superior for the 

effectiveness of its front crash prevention features. However, the 

car received the second-lowest score of Marginal for how well its 

headlights illuminate the road ahead.

S60 Safety Features

The S60 comes loaded with standard active safety technologies. 

Among them are forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, 

forward automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, 

lane departure warning, lane keep assist, oncoming collision 

mitigation, traffic sign recognition, automatic high-beam 

headlights, and a rear view camera.

You can opt for blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, 

reverse automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, a 

head-up display, a surround-view parking camera, adaptive 

headlights and fog lights, and front and rear parking sensors.

Like most other Volvo models, the S60 can be equipped with Pilot 

Assist. This driver assistance system controls your speed relative 

to other vehicles around you, and it provides steering input to keep 

you centered in your lane. This is not a semi- or fully autonomous 

driving mode. The driver is always responsible for safe operation 

of the vehicle.
