2016 Volvo S60 Inscription OVERVIEW

A new Inscription series of Volvo’s stylish S60 sedan, riding a wheelbase three inches longer than usual, has joined the lineup for 2016. It replaces the previous S60 T5 Platinum. With their extended wheelbase, Inscription editions claim the most backseat legroom in the segment.

Inscription models come with a choice of two engines: a newer, fuel-efficient four-cylinder in front-wheel drive sedans, or an older five-cylinder with all-wheel drive. Each version comes in a choice of two trim levels. Standard-length S60 sedans have only adequate back-seat room, trailing some midsize models.

What's New for 2016

Inscription sedans with the extended wheelbase are new for 2016. Designers had to reshape the basic S60’s roofline to accommodate the extra body length. Built in China, Inscription models with front-drive include power steering personalization. Speed-sensitive steering goes into Inscription sedans with all-wheel drive.

Choosing Your Volvo S60 Inscription

In the T5 Drive-E Inscription sedans, which have front-wheel drive, a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine makes 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is used. A turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine goes into AWD Inscription models, sending 250 horsepower and 266 pound-feet to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel economy of the T5 Drive-E Inscription is estimated at 25 mpg city/37 mpg highway, or 29 mpg in combined driving. Considerably less thrifty, the AWD model gets an estimate of only 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway, or 23 mpg combined.

T5 Drive-E Inscription Premier

In addition to the 2-liter four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic, the $38,700 entry-level version of the new extended-wheelbase sedan comes with a rearview camera, rear park assist, powered rear-window sunshade, side-window sunshades, dual-zone automatic temperature control, walnut wood interior trim, contour seats, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

T5 Drive-E Inscription Platinum

For an additional $3,000, the upper front-drive trim level adds a Harman Kardon 650-watt, 12-speaker audio system; Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity; pedestrian protection sensors; adaptive cruise control; HomeLink garage door opener; heated power mirrors with memory; DVD rear-seat entertainment; and lane-change assist.

T5 AWD Inscription Premier

Starting at $40,200, the all-wheel drive Premier edition of the new Inscription series gets the extended-length body and 2.5-liter engine with six-speed automatic. Standard equipment is nearly identical to the Drive-E Premier.

T5 AWD Inscription Platinum

For $3,000 more than Premier, the AWD Platinum version adds standard equipment similar to the Drive-E Platinum model.

CarsDirect Tip

Choosing an Inscription version adds $4,750 to the standard-length T5 price. Is it worth the extra dollars? Could be, if you frequently carry passengers any distance in the back seat. Those additional inches can make quite a difference. All S60s carry on Volvo’s reputation for superior safety ratings.
