Volvo S60 (2018) Review
Volvo S60 (2018) At A Glance
The 2019 S60 is sold without a diesel engine - a sign of the manufacturer's commitment to 'electrification and a long-term future beyond the traditional combustion engine'.
Buyers can choose between two plug-in hybrid variants in the form of the 340PS T6 and 400PS T8, while conventional petrol engines will also be available in the form of the T5 and T6.
Based on the same platform as most of Volvo's current range, the S60 - unsurprisingly - looks like a saloon version of the V60 or a smaller version of the S90.
Inside is typical Volvo, with premium materials and a large Sensus Connect infotainment display in the middle of the dash providing access to navigation, car functions, audio, in-car apps, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Safety technology will be shared with the V60, such as the optional Pilot Assist system which can 'support' the driver with steering, acceleration and braking at speeds of up to 80mph. This has been upgraded with improved cornering performance, while assistance systems like Run-Off Road Mitigation and City Safety can prevent or reduce the severity of crashes.
Enthusiastic drivers can opt for an S60 with a performance handling upgrade badged Polestar Engineered - developed by Volvo's electric performance brand, Polestar. Available exclusively on the T8 plug-in hybrid, this boosts power to 415PS while also upgrading the S60's brakes, wheels and suspension.
