For the 2023 model year, the Volvo S60 is expected to arrive as a refreshed sedan. The 2023 Volvo S60 is expected to arrive with an updated design and the automaker’s new Android-based infotainment system. The available S60 Recharge is expected to arrive with more range thanks to a larger battery pack.
Despite being refreshed for 2023, the S60’s exterior design will only get minor updates. The sedan’s front and rear bumpers will be updated, while the S60 will gain some new wheel designs. Beyond these changes, the S60 will continue to share the same overall design as the current model, which features an upscale, conservative look with round edges and standout lighting.
We don’t expect to see any changes to the 2023 S60’s interior design for the new model year. The current sedan has an upscale look with minimal analog controls, simple lines, and premium materials. Most of the S60’s physical controls are located toward the bottom of the center console, below the vertically-oriented touchscreen. They’re well-labeled and easy to access for the driver.
The biggest change for the 2023 S60 is expected to happen on the inside where the sedan will arrive with Volvo’s Android-based infotainment system. The system is found on the all-electric XC50 Recharge and Polestar 2. Official figures on screen size and included features aren’t available yet. The Polestar 2 comes with a standard 11.2-inch touchscreen, four USB ports, eight audio speakers, satellite radio, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
With the Volvo S60 benefitting from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a mild-hybrid system for the 2022 model year, we don’t expect to see any changes to the sedan’s powertrains for 2023. The current engine is rated at 247 horsepower. The available turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine found in the Recharge trim should arrive with more range. The powertrain is rated at up to 415 hp. Range should increase from 22 miles to 41 miles. Both engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2023 Volvo S60’s list of safety features shouldn't change for the upcoming model year. The current model comes standard with forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring. Available safety features should include adaptive cruise control, Volvo’s Pilot Assist system, front parking sensors, automatic park assist, and a surround-view parking camera.
