Effortless performance meets intuitive technology, while a sophisticated chassis balances comfort and control. The Volvo S60 is a place where connected, easy-to-use technology prevails.
The S60 celebrates the joy of driving through its design and confidently communicates its ability on the road. Sculpted sides, muscular shoulders and a sleek profile highlight the Volvo S60’s athletic character, while the Scandinavian elegance and a distinctive dynamic design combine to give the model a focused and powerful presence on the road. The prominent Volvo emblem is displayed on the fierce front grille while the front bumper and long bonnet elongate the model’s stance. When paired with full LED headlights and the unique T-shaped light signature, the S60 is easily recognised both day and night. For an even more purposeful presence, add an exterior styling kit that includes front and rear splitters, a rear diffuser and integrated split tail pipes that create a powerful impression. Optional alloy wheels enhance the car’s spirited character.
The model is tailored for a spirited drive with a combination of purity, quality and purpose reflecting the cornerstones of Scandinavian interior design. Volvo cars’ seats are renowned for their long-distance comfort. The S60 features five luxurious, spacious and heated front and outer rear seats meaning that every passenger will travel in comfort. Volvo’s new-generation seats provide support that leaves you feeling fresh after any journey. The standard fitted Comfort Seats have power height adjustment while the Contour Seats are standard or optional depending on trim – and provide even greater side support, as well as an adjustable cushion extension. There is a large load compartment, accommodating up to 442 litres and the option of a 60/40 split rear backrest.The panoramic roof bathes the interior in natural light. It’s large enough that those in both the front and rear seats can benefit from it, while special tinted glass reduces unwanted heat and UV radiation. It features a power-operated sunshade that makes it easy to keep strong light out if necessary, while the front part of the roof can be tilted or opened to provide extra ventilation. The uncluttered space invites you to savour the sense of luxury and focus on enjoying the drive and includes an intuitive command centre, while unique air vents, starter knob and driving mode controller have slender, metal-finished controls. Bowers & Wilkins audio is the top-level sound system for the new S60. Total output is 1100 watts to 15 speakers, while three different room modes – Studio, Individual Stage and Gothenburg Concert Hall – allow you to tailor the sound to your music or mood. Details such as stainless steel speaker panels, Bowers & Wilkins logos and distinctive yellow speaker cones create an exclusive visual impression.
The new S60 is available with a range of features that use the car’s connectivity services to make journeys simpler and help you remain connected whilst enjoying your favourite music. The centre display with 9” touch screen is the effortless way you can connect to the outside world.

Smart technology and seamless smartphone integration lets you effortlessly enjoy your favourite music and podcasts and with the integrated Spotify app there’s no need to connect your phone. Support for Apple CarPlay allows you to link an Apple iPhone, while Android Auto is also supported. The car’s intuitive centre touch screen, or simple voice control, is all you need to access a world of entertainment. The Sensus Connect package gives you access to a range of additional apps that mean you can enjoy internet radio and audiobooks in your new S60. The Volvo On Call app connects your phone, tablet or wearable device with your new S60 to make life less complicated and more enjoyable.

The S60 inspires you to drive, with a chassis that strikes a balance between comfort and control. Precise, responsive steering creates a feeling of connection to the road. Enjoy efficient engines, strong performance and plug-in hybrid models capable of zero-emissions running. The innovative and integral rear suspension boasts sharp handling and keeps weight to a minimum, for maximum agility. There is an abundance of drive modes available to choose from allowing you to tailor your driving experience to your mood including Four-C active chassis, an electronically controlled damping system that gives you even greater control over how the S60 responds. The system constantly assesses the current road conditions and your driving style, and adapts the shock absorbers to provide the best balance of comfort and control. When switching between the car’s drive modes the Four-C system also adjusts the suspension characteristics, so the car always behaves exactly the way you want it to. The S60 T6 Twin Engine and T8 Twin Engine models have plug-in hybrid powertrains that give you exceptional performance, versatility and efficiency, supplied by the combination of a four-cylinder petrol engine driving. The innovative engines balance strong performance with low emissions and fuel consumption, so you can enjoy the feeling of power, responsibly. Power is sent through smooth-shifting transmissions – an 8-speed Geartronic automatic with steering wheel-mounted paddles on the R-Design variants, or a six-speed manual gearbox.
The innovative safety features that make the S60 a safe place for you and your passengers are the result of decades of innovation. The 360˚ Camera makes parking easier by showing a bird’s-eye view of your car and its immediate surroundings on the large centre display while Pilot Assist is an additional support function that helps make driving in heavy traffic less tiring and works at speeds of up to 130km/h. At the core is a rigid safety cell that protects all the car’s occupants, while crumple zones front and rear dissipate as much energy as possible in the event of a collision. City Safety is an innovation by Volvo that helps to protect people inside and outside by spotting potential danger and helping you avoid it. It can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision.
