Volvo S60 - model year 2017


The S60 is Volvo’s elegant and dynamic 4-door premium mid-size sports sedan. The current, second generation of the S60 was launched in 2010 and underwent a major renewal in 2013. The S60 has been one of Volvo’s best-selling models in many markets ever since its inception. Like its V60 sibling, it is also available as a powerful Polestar version.


As with all Volvos, the powertrain offer is based on the Drive-E 2.0 litre turbo- and super-charged engines.


The Drive-E range of low emission, high performance engines offers a perfect blend of driver enjoyment and fuel economy, whilst retaining a responsive feel for city driving.


More details around the powertrain offer can be found in the Technical Specifications.



The S60 offers a full range of connectivity options that include Volvo On Call, a phone-based app that allows you to control certain features in your car, such as pre-heating, locking and unlocking, navigation and vehicle location services. Volvo On Call now works with wearables such as Apple Watch and Android Wear and also has Windows 10 compatibility, meaning that Volvo On Call can now be operated from your PC as well as your smartphone.


Sensus delivers a range of native apps offering streaming music via TuneIn and geo-location services such as Yelp and Wikilocations. Read more about Sensus in our factsheet.


The Harman Kardon Premium Sound system is tuned to perfection in Volvo’s advanced audio lab, enabling high quality music streaming.



The S60 comes with one of the most comprehensive standard safety offers available in the segment, including City Safety, which delivers a range of collision avoidance and mitigation functionalities including pedestrian and cyclist detection. A range of optional safety and convenience systems are also available in the 60 Series cars.
