Expert Rating

4.15 (Excellent)
23 City / 32 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2017 Volvo S60 OVERVIEW

The Volvo S60 is the smallest sedan currently offered by this Swedish automaker. It is an entry-level premium sedan and an alternative to pricier models from BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz. Volvo’s reputation for safety and minimalism is evident here.

The S60 line is represented by the standard wheelbase model in T5, T6, T6 AWD and Polestar editions. A stretched wheelbase Inscription and a Cross Country line with a higher ground clearance are marketed separately.

What's New for 2017

For 2017, the Volvo S60 returns largely unchanged. Under the hood, however, you’ll find a pair of 2-liter four-cylinder engines. The first engine is turbocharged. The second engine is turbocharged and supercharged. Gone are the previously available five- and six-cylinder engines.

Choosing Your Volvo S60

Your first step in outfitting your S60 begins with your engine choice. An eight-speed automatic is standard across the model line. Both T5 models are powered by the 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Choose front-wheel drive and your S60 makes an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. All-wheel drive models are rated at 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

The T6 model is an all-wheel drive only model. It is powered by a 2-liter supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 302 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This model makes 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

The Polestar edition features the same engine as the T6, but with some important changes evident, including a larger turbo, dedicated connecting rods, a larger intake, and a higher capacity fuel pump. This model makes 362 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. The Polestar makes an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

Depending on the sub-model chosen you’ll also find various package upgrades available, including the BLIS safety suite, climate, vision, technology, navigation and audio, and sport.
