The all-new S60 is a luxury car that lives up to the reputation that Volvo has built; the only difference is that it's in a slightly smaller package. As a result, the 2019 Volvo S60 feels quite youthful and sporty.
There are four different trims of the 2019 Volvo S60, starting out with the Momentum. Though the base model of the group, the Momentum still incorporates many elements that illustrate the quality of its craftsmanship. The Inscription, a vehicle that truly showcases Scandinavian luxury, is the next choice. Finally, the S60 R-Design and T8 Polestar Engineered are both designed for those looking for premium performance and numerous upgrades.
The options don't just end at trim level. There are three different engines available on the S60, and the names of the models begin with either T5, T6, or T8. They all come with a stop/start function to save gas while the the car is not in motion, and they use an eight-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth shifting.
T5 models come on front-wheel drive Momentums, Inscriptions, and R-Design vehicles, whereas T6 models come with all-wheel drive in those same trims. The T5 engine is a four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a displacement of two liters. It has 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The T6 is more capable, with a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0L engine that has 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Estimates of fuel economy are 24/36 (city/highway ) miles per gallon on the T5 and 21/32 mpg on the T6.
Also paired with all-wheel drive are the T8 Inscription, T8 R-Design, and T8 Polestar engines. They have electric motors in addition to their gasoline-powered one, and everything in combination outputs an impressive 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.
On the 2019 Volvo S60 Momentum, there are many elements in place designed for comfort, convenience, and luxury. On the outside of the sedan are a unique front grille, LED headlights, and dual tailpipes that shine with their chrome sleeves. The car runs on 18" alloy wheels, and having heated windshield washer nozzles just shows how much thought and time went into building the S60.
Inside the S60, drivers and passengers can take advantage of the two-zone electric climate control system, which actively cleans the air and adjusts humidity as it helps control the temperature. The panoramic moonroof can be opened up with the touch of a button for fresh air.
Both of the front seats can be power-adjusted and programmed to remember certain positions. The back row can fold down, also with the push of a button, for additional storage. The leather steering wheel and leather gearshift knob are extra touches that add to the overall interior design.
For those who want to stay connected and have access to data in their phones, the 2019 Volvo S60 is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The system, which runs through an expansive nine-inch touchscreen, can be used to get directions, make calls, and play music. That music can be broadcast through either a Bowers & Wilkins or a Harman Kardon system.
Volvo is a brand known for making safety as a priority. The 2019 Volvo S60 comes with several assistive features that can automatically activate themselves when needed. The car can help keep itself in the right lane if a driver accidentally veers to one side. This holds true whether the driver is on a two-lane road or a busy, multi-lane highway. When backing up, the driver can use the park assist camera as an extra pair of eyes to make sure the vehicle is maneuvered appropriately.
An additional package can put on more safety features on the 2019 Volvo S60. It can come with adaptive cruise control so that proper distance to other vehicles is maintained as well as headlights that can actually bend as the car turns. This improves visibility on curvy, dark roads. Another advantage of getting the upgraded package is that it includes a 360-degree camera so that one can do a better job of parallel parking.
The R-Design includes a blind-spot information system that alerts drivers to obstacles behind them, to include any cross traffic. It also has a keyless entry system that features illuminated door handles. With the S60 R-Design, the trunk lid can automatically open and close, freeing up hands to carry bags or equipment.
The S60 Inscription comes with integrated Sensus Navigation. It works with either steering wheel or voice controls, and the directions are broadcast both in the touchscreen and in the driver's display. With real-time traffic and free map updates, information is always current. Another piece of the Inscription's design is the black leather-clad dashboard. This elevates the atmosphere inside the cabin to a new level.
With a high-performing engine, the T8 Polestar Engineered is expected to be available in limited quantities. These vehicles have exterior badging to mark themselves as unique from the rest along with lightweight forged alloy wheels. Inside the car, there are gearshift paddles and gold seatbelts that help give the impression that the S60 is racing around the track.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Volvo S60 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Volvo S60 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
