2013 Volvo S60
2013 Volvo S60

New For 2013

Four-wheel drive is now available on the S60 T5. Keyless Drive and a power glass moonroof are now standard on T6 AWD models, and heated rear seats are optional. Automatic windshield wipers, headlight washers, and tunnel detection are now standard on all models. There is a new trim strategy: Premier to Premier Plus to Platinum. There are three new exterior colors: ember black, electric silver, and rebel blue.

Overview

The S60 challenges the class leaders on refinement and handling. The model line has been fully fleshed out now with five- and six-cylinder engines coupled with front- or four-wheel drive. The base front-wheel-drive T5 shares the turbocharged five-cylinder found in the C70 and the C30, but here it has been tweaked to make 250 hp; for 2013, all-wheel drive is available on the T5. The all-wheel-drive T6 is powered by Volvo’s well-regarded 3.0-liter turbocharged in-line six-cylinder making 300 hp. Topping the S60 range is the T6 R-Design, which shares the all-wheel-drive layout and six-cylinder engine of the T6 but has tweaks to the engine and the suspension that raise power to 325 hp and give the S60 a sportier mien. The only transmission is a six-speed automatic. Regardless of which S60 you choose, you will find a superbly executed interior with an aesthetically pleasing center console, a wealth of premium soft-touch materials, and artfully designed trim. The exterior is equally fetching, as the S60 carries on the modern Volvo design aesthetic that was first seen in the original S80 and has proliferated throughout the lineup. With the S60, Volvo has managed to carve out a distinct product in an impossibly crowded field, and it holds its own, in both value and performance, with the best cars in the segment.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard. City Safety, which automatically brakes the car when it senses a collision is about to take place, is standard. A blind-spot monitoring system is optional.

You'll like:

  • Beautifully executed interior
  • Powerful engines
  • Precise steering and handling

You won't like:

  • Slow infotainment system
  • Poor rearward visibility

2013 Volvo S60 T6 Front Driving
The Wide Open Throttle regulars of Angus MacKenzie, Jonny Lieberman and Carlos Lago were joined again this week by the stars of Roadkill and Hot Rod Unlimited, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan to add their hands-on performance perspective to the conversation. The show kicks off with a discussion of the Volvo S60 T6 vs. the Audi S4, with the consensus that the VW Group's deep pockets and engineering expertise made it almost impossible for Volvo to pull off an upset. Add the Audi's inherently more high-performance seven-speed dual clutch, and the competition was almost over before it started.
2013 Volvo S60 Polestar Front Three Quarter
Australia: the land down under with the Great Barrier Reef, kangaroos, and high-performance Volvos. Wait, what? Australian buyers will now have the choice of a Polestar-fettled S60 sedan inspired by the audacious S60 Polestar Concept.
2014 Volvo V60 Front Three Quarter 2
It’s hard out there for a U.S.-market Volvo dealer: even as models like the S60 and XC60 gain traction in their segments, a lack of different models have pushed sales lower. The bosses in Sweden have noticed, and may be rushing help to the American outlets, perhaps with a new station wagon.
Volvo City Safety Cyclist Detection Schematic
Volvo’s City Safety active safety system initially protected against hitting stationary obstacles or other cars, but was then expanded to avoid pedestrians, and again to prevent hitting wildlife. Now the City Safety setup, which can automatically stop a car without the driver’s input in an emergency, can avoid cyclists.
2014 Volvo S60 With Active High Beams Front Clip
It’s not enough any more to equip a car with automatic high beam headlights — the next step is active high beams, which shift light away from other cars while keeping full-beam coverage everywhere else. We’ve already seen similar systems from Mercedes-Benz and Audi, and Volvo will follow suit on a number of its recently-updated models.
