Quick Look

The 2015 Volvo S60 is a fair-priced, good-looking and well-performing sedan that doesn’t come with too many changes this year, but the changes it does come with are tremendous. Those changes involve the presence of two new four-cylinder engines, which give the Volvo a good performance boost – in case some drivers felt like that’s what was missing from the previous models.




Full Review

The 2015 Volvo S60 is nearly the same as the last year’s model, but it does offer a few updates – particularly under the hood. The S60 is entering its sixth year now, which is an achievement in its own right, given the kind of competition it has to deal with. Yet this car delivers exactly what you would expect from a $40,000 sedan. It has a pair of fantastic new engines, attractive exterior design and a very comfortable cabin.

On the outside, Volvo sedans just seem far too boxy to still be active in this day and age. Yet the S60 is actually one of the most stylish sedans around. It does have that Volvo look to it, but with so many modern touches, it’s hardly out of date. The front end is smoother and more minimalist (in a good way). The detailing like all the numerous LEDs for various lighting functions show a kin attention to the finest of fine details. However, the sloping roof at the back end gives off that "four-door coupe" vibe, which means that its trunk is tiny.

On the inside, the new S60 comes with comfortable and highly supportive seats, which in truth Volvo has boasted for a while. The T5 and T6 versions of the sedan contain standard sports-inspired seats, engineered and built for the long road trips, while heated seats are available for both front and rear occupants (in higher trims, of course). And since this a Volvo, a bran recognized for great instrumentation, it’s all easy to see and mostly logical to operate, but the single-knob controller for the infotainment system can by a little annoying and just plain unintuitive. Our favourite feature is addition of the Audyssey Laboratories' MultEQ technology, which makes the sound quality clear and sharp in all the models.

Under the hood, the 2015 S60 has two new Drive-E four-cylinders, which means that the sedan now offers four different engines. The 2.0-litre turbocharged Drive-E T5 generates 240 horsepower, while the turbocharged and supercharged Drive-E T6 puts out 302. Both engines are available exclusively for front-wheel-drive models, while being connected to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive models, on the other hand, get the older engines, with The T5 taking an inline five-cylinder that puts out 250 horsepower and T6 R-Design taking a 3.0-litre inline-six, which yield 325 horsepower. These engines are all connected to a six-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode.

Overall, the 2015 Volvo S60 is one of those cars that don’t get enough respect, as far as we are concerned. It has a set of impressive engines, good looks and plenty of comfort. So, if you are looking for an alternative to the Audi A4, Lexus IS250 or BMW 328i, then this is it. We highly recommend it!

Power and Performance:

Last year the Volvo S60 got some design updates; for 2015, the S60 gets two new engine options that combine power with much better fuel efficiency. In general, the 2015 Volvo S60 has performance to match its aggressive styling--though its high-end R-Design models may not deliver quite the handling and refinement to match some enthusiasts' demands.

The new 2.0-liter direct-injected Drive-E four-cylinder engine, in two different forms, offers strong performance in a lighter package, along with much better fuel-economy ratings. But it's only available for front-wheel-drive models. If you want the benefits of the new engines with all-wheel drive, you'll have to wait until the S60 is redesigned two or three years hence.

Interiors and Special Features:

One of the most enduring attractions for Volvos has been their comfortable and highly supportive seats, and the 2015 S60 maintains that reputation, with T5 and T6 sedans fitted with standard sports-inspired seats that are engineered and built for the long-haul ride. Heated seats are available for both front and rear occupants. As you would expect, the instrumentation is easy to see and mostly logical to operate, although the single-knob controller for the infotainment system isn't very intuitive. Sound quality from the audio system, thanks to the application of Audyssey Laboratories' MultEQ technology, is clear and crisp throughout the range.

Safety features:

In addition to a full complement of airbags, side-impact protection and whiplash-protection systems, standard fare for S60 models includes City Safety, technology that will minimize or prevent collisions at 31 miles per hour or below by automatically priming or applying the brakes if closing velocity is excessive.

The S60 earned perfect 5-star ratings in all National Highway Traffic Safety Administration test categories. It's also an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety-designated Top Safety Pick.

The optional Technology Package adds a pedestrian detection system (also with automatic braking), driver drowsiness alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. Also available are a blind spot monitoring system, parallel park assist and a rear cross-traffic alert system.
