In 2001, Volvo debuted the S60, a sports sedan to take on the likes of the BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. In 2020, the S60 underwent a huge redesign in an effort to keep up with the times. For the 2013 model year, the S60 carries over with some minor revisions within each trim level.
The 2013 S60 comes in three main designs – T5, T6 and T6 R-Design – with a smattering of trim levels for each design. For the 2013 model year, the T5 trim level sees changes to its engine, increasing compression and lowering friction, a 0.4-second drop in its 0-to-60 mph time, new standard features (rain-sensing wipers, headlight washers and polished dual exhaust), and a shuffling of its trim levels. In 2013, the T6 design sees the addition of standard rain-sensing wipers, headlight washers, power passenger seat, keyless drive with Personal Car Communicator and power moonroof, a new exterior color, and a shuffling of its trim levels. For the 2013 model year, the T6 R-Design receives larger brake rotors, the addition of standard rain-sensing wipers, headlight washers and accessory-prep cable, and the same trim-level shuffling as the T5 and T6 designs.
The base model for the 2013 Volvo S60 is named the T5 trim level, and it starts off with a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 266 foot-pounds of torque. The engine hooks up to a six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission that delivers power to the front wheels. On the outside, the T5 comes standard with stability control and corner traction control to keep the car glued to the road, polished dual exhaust and 4-by-7-inch “Balder” alloy wheels to add some extra style, and power heated outside mirrors for buyers in colder climates. Inside the cabin, the T5 includes a 160-watt, eight-speaker, AM/FM/CD/HD Radio/SiriusXM audio system with USB and Aux inputs, Bluetooth connectivity for added convenience and safety, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob for added style, and heated front seats for cooler climates.
The T5 Platinum trim level is the top package for the five-cylinder-equipped S60 and it continues to enhance the luxury of the vehicle. On the outside, the T5 Platinum trim level adds in a rearview camera to help you avoid obstacles when backing up and the rest is all carried over from the T5 Premier Plus trim level. Inside the S60’s cabin, the T5 Platinum trim adds in a 650-watt, 12-speaker audio system with CD/DVD.HD Radio/MP3 capabilities, auxiliary and USB inputs, and Dolby Pro-Logic II surround sound, Volvo Navigation with voice control, and two complimentary map updates.
The T5 Premier is the next trim level up and it adds in some extra luxury items. On the outside, the T5 Premier trim level adds in a power glass moonroof for some extra airflow. Inside the cabin, the T5 Premier adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror for added safety and convenience, power passenger seat with eight-way adjustment for additional comfort, leather seating in your choice of off-black and anthracite, beechwood brown/off black and anthracite, soft beige/off black and anthracite, or soft beige and sandstone beige, keyless drive with Personal Car Communicator for added convenience and safety, and an accessory-prep cable for additional connectivity to the audio system.

Great power and acceleration across the board, BMW quality and great styling, but standard faux leather is tacky
Mercedes-Benz pedigree, awesome mpg and competitive base price, but fake leather interior and slow base format
Excellent base price, up and comer in the segment and standard leather, but lacks a pedigree and boring Audi styling
Honda quality, standard leather and V-6 standard, but relatively high priced and the odd Acura beak are a turn off
