2015 Volvo S60
2015 Volvo S60

New for 2015

The Volvo S60 receives a number of changes for the 2015 model year, including the new Drive-E engines (a turbo and turbo/supercharged I-4) and a new eight-speed automatic for front-wheel-drive models, a limited run of Polestar high-performance versions, and minor trim changes for all models.

Vehicle Overview

The Volvo S60 is a compact sedan available in front- and all-wheel-drive trims, and for 2015 the sedan is also available as a V60 wagon. The capable duo comes in various forms from the efficient T5 with the new Drive-E engines to the high-performance R-Design models and the exclusive Polestar. The S60 is the smallest vehicle in the Volvo lineup, sitting below the S80 and XC70 crossover-wagon.

Summary

The 2015 Volvo S60 introduces a new line of Drive-E engines. They are currently available with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel-drive models continue on with the same inline five- and six-cylinder mills.

Model: T5 Drive-E
Engine and Transmission: Turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 — eight-speed auto

Model: T6 AWD R-Design

Power: 345 hp/369 lb-ft
EPA-rated fuel efficiency: 18/26 mpg
As with the Volvo's German competitors, the S60 offers plenty of features, including the Sensus infotainment system (7-inch touchscreen, built-in music apps, built-in Wi-Fi hot spot, navigation, and Volvo On Call smartphone connectivity), engine stop-start technology, adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera system, active high beams (automatically switches to low beams when other vehicles, pedestrians, or cyclists are detected), park assistance, blind-spot warning, lane-keeping assist, forward collision warning, and an optional Harman Kardon premium audio system.
The 2015 Volvo S60 received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) and is considered a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS.

What We Think

Although the incredibly capable 2015 Volvo S60 Polestar models are getting lots of attention, the regular S60 line is nothing to turn your nose up at. The new S60 and related V60 wagon are “better than any Volvo wagon [or sedan] you remember thanks to a livelier, premium-quality personality and a new Drive-E powertrain that squeezes out more mpg from its engine without squeezing out the fun in the process,” we noted in a 2015 Volvo V60 Driven Review. Practicality is still the aim, but now the S60 has set its sights on the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, and Mercedes Benz C-Class, moving up into the luxury sport sedan segment. In sampling the various available chassis setups, we found Touring to be the most comfortable for climes with less than ideal roads.
In a Driven Review of a 2015 Volvo S60 AWD Polestar, we said: “All the dynamic performance of this car — speeding, steering and stopping — has been so well blended together that you’re aware only of driving, not specifications. This is what you want from a mature, well-developed sporting sedan, and it is as if the Volvo S60 Polestar has taken all the best aspects of the Audi S4, BMW M3, and Mercedes-AMG C63 and stitched them together.” Volvo is back with a new sense of focus, and by what we’ve seen in the S60, we can’t wait to see what else they have waiting for us. When considering the possibilities of an S60, carefully choose a suspension/chassis tune that won’t damage your fillings because of your imperfect roads, and if you have inclement weather, think about pairing the Drive-E (and its have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too approach to performance and fuel economy) with a nice set of winter tires.

2015 Volvo S60 AWD Polestar Review
Riverside, California -- Sweltering in the blazing desert sunlight outside the 110-year-old Mission Inn, it seems pretty dumb to be getting ready to drive the 2015 Volvo S60 Polestar. Just minutes ago, we were shown a picture of this all-wheel-drive car in its natural environment, an icy road in Sweden. We have looked carefully, yet can see no signs of frozen Arctic tundra in the vicinity of the Mission Inn.
