Completely Redesigned for 2019

Volvo opted for an all-new S60 model for the 2019 model year. Rather than a simple facelift, the S60 got a top-to-bottom redesign. The most obvious changes are on the outside. A fresh side profile offers a more premium look overall. The S60 also gets the now brand-standard "Thor's Hammer" headlight design. The cabin has been completely redone as well. Notably, the 2019 S60 comes with a standard 19-inch touchscreen display in the center console. On the performance end, the 2019 S60 comes with a new T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Varied Powertrain Options

The new S60 lets drivers take their pick from a range of powertrain options. From turbocharged gas engines to advanced hybrid technology, the S60 serves drivers of varying performance tastes. The standard T5 powertrain uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit. It produces a respectable 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The T6 powertrain coaxes more power out of the 2.0-liter unit by adding a supercharger. This time around, it makes 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the T8 Twin Engine powertrain uses a plug-in hybrid design to deliver both compelling power and excellent efficiency. Working together, the 2.0-liter gas engine and the electric motor make 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. 

Front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain for the new S60. However, higher trim levels come with an available all-wheel drive system. Certain models also come with selectable drive modes that adjust parameters and optimize driving dynamics for your preferences.

Distinctly Scandinavian Interior

Volvo doubles down on its tradition of handsome, yet pragmatic cabin spaces with the new S60. The new sedan brings together aesthetic appeal, upscale comfort, and ergonomic design. Step inside and you'll find a wide range of features aimed at providing an all-around excellent driving experience.

High quality materials are used throughout the S60's interior. Perforated leather upholstery with contrast stitching is nice to the touch and to the eyes. Many control surfaces throughout the cabin are finished in metal, resulting in a satisfying weightiness during use. Metal-mesh trim pieces accentuate the interior further, while available driftwood gives the space a distinct look.

The S60's cabin isn't just nice to look at -- it's easy and comfortable to use. Volvo provides standard seats designed to support you throughout your journey. Available Contour seats offer extra adjustment parameters and side support. Controls on the doors, center console, and steering wheel have been placed for easy, intuitive access.

To finish things off, Volvo equipped the 2019 S60 with a standard nine-inch touchscreen display. You can control a wide range of functions through this simple interface.

Thorough Safety

For years, Volvo vehicles have carried a reputation for substantial safety. While Volvo continues to excel in passive safety, new models like the S60 continue to get more and more active safety technology features. The S60 itself has a long list of available features.

Blind Spot Information System: This system monitors other vehicles in low visibility areas. If a vehicle is in your blind spot, a signal on your side mirror will let you know before you decide to turn or merge.

Active Bending Lights: As you turn your wheel, this available system will turn your headlights accordingly. That means better visibility around bends in the road during dark or low visibility conditions.

Lane Keeping Aid: This feature pays attention to lane lines as you go down the road. It can send a signal and even correct steering if you begin to merge into another lane without signaling.

Road Sign Information: Road Sign Information (RSI) recognizes speed limit signs as you pass them and displays the information in your instrument panel. You can also opt to have the system alert send an alert if you surpass the current speed limit.

Run-off Road Mitigation: If you begin to veer off of the road, this system can detect the mistake and automatically correct steering to keep you out of a ditch.

Automatic Braking After Collision: Cars often continue to move even after a collision. This system automatically employs braking after an accident to bring the vehicle to a stop.

2019 Volvo S60 Trim Levels

Not every S60 is the same. Volvo offers four trim levels with varying standard features, cosmetic packages, and more.

Momentum: The S60 with the lowest price tag is anything but base level. The S60 Momentum comes with standard features like leather seats, LED headlights, and a nine-inch touchscreen display.

Inscription: Luxury is the focus in the S60 Inscription. New paint colors and available 18" and 19"-inch wheels give it a distinguished exterior look. On the inside, standard wood trim complement leather upholstery with a variety of color options.

R-Design: If you're seeking a sportier experience, the R-Design is for you. Black trim pieces on the outside make for a more aggressive look. Performance is tuned for tighter, more precise feel.

Polestar: This performance-focused model comes standard with the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain. Upgraded suspension and braking components provide improved handling as well.
