At the crossroads of high efficiency, supreme comfort, and sharp styling, you'll find the 2017 Volvo S60, an eye-catching small luxury sedan that stands out for all the right reasons.
To help our local car shoppers learn more about what the latest S60 model has in store, Smythe Volvo put together the following detailed Volvo S60 review.
Can you see yourself behind the wheel of the S60 cruising around Summit, Morristown, and Westfield in style? Let's find out!
The Volvo S60 Is Refined and Efficient
Striking the right balance between power and efficiency is where most sport-oriented sedans trip up, but not the Volvo S60. Matching turbocharged power with poised drive dynamics, the 2017 S60 yields a ride that's inspired yet efficient.
The S60 model has three available Drive-E turbocharged engines that correspond to its three trim levels: the T5, T6, and the new-for-2017 Polestar.
The S60 T5 gets a standard 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that makes 240 horsepower. Turbocharging gives this motor the high-power output of a larger engine without increasing its chamber size, producing a peppy feel while boosting fuel return.
Together, this main engine, its standard 8-speed automatic transmission, and exclusive ECO+ mode achieve an EPA-estimated 25 city/36 highway MPG, which are outstanding marks for the class. The 2016 S60 was even ranked on Autobytel.com's recent list of the Top 10 Best Gas Mileage Luxury Cars.
More Power? No Problem
For those seeking stronger acceleration, the 302 horsepower T6 or the mighty 362 horsepower Polestar are more than up for the challenge.
Luxury Cabin for Five
How do you define a luxury interior? Touchscreens? Leather seating? Glinting chrome trim? Take a seat in the 2017 Volvo S60 and you'll get your answer.
Superior Seating Comfort
The Volvo S60 is outfitted with sleek leatherette seats that aren't your average buckets. Featuring a custom mix of bolstering that's geared toward improving ergonomics while providing exceptional comfort, the S60's seats are ideal for re-energizing during long commutes and road trips.
The sedan offers 41.9 inches of legroom up front and 33.5 inches in the back.
The long-wheelbase S60 Inscription body style offers three additional inches of legroom for the back seat, which is great for those who plan on using their S60 as a routine family traveler.
At the dashboard, a mix of soft-touch materials and high-quality hardware center around the 7-inch Sensus infotainment system.
Sensus houses everything you need to stay connected on your journey, including a Bluetooth® connection, satellite radio, and control of the 8-speaker sound system. You also have the ability to launch your own Wi-Fi hotspot for your car for internet access anywhere over the course of your travels.
