Product Overview

Volvo S60 III is a compact executive sedan in production from 2018. It is available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 2.0 liters paired to an Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission.
Built on Volvo's new SPA platform, the S60 Mk3 has a full inline-4 engine lineup. This is a unique choice in its class. Compared to earlier S60 models, the limitation of I4 engine is apparent when it comes to smoothness.
Volvo compensates with electronic gimmicks and an "aggressive" styling that departs from its classy predecessors.
Volvo has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.27 coefficient of drag to show for it.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Volvo S60 III comes with double-wishbone and multi-link suspensions.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Volvo has had several years of (under Geely ownership) well-funded development time for its plug-in powertrains. In town or country pootling, it’s as delightfully smooth and serene as a pure EV. When the engine is fired up, it does so almost imperceptibly unless you stomp inelegantly on the throttle. But we found the standard Hybrid mode to be the most balanced for most situations.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals
  • Not the most fun to drive

The Polestar Engineered is distinguished from the standard T8 by gold brake calipers, a 12mm ride-height squat and a set of dazzling 20in Y-spoke alloys shod in 245-section Pirelli P Zero tyres. Power is also up to 405bhp, with roughly 90bhp of that delivered by the rear-mounted electric motor, and spring rates are up five per cent compared to Volvo’s existing R-Design sports chassis.

Pros
  • Strikingly refined powertrain
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • Lacklustre infotainment system

The S60 is a largely amiable companion, too. Mature, sophisticated and largely uncomplicated in feel. It starts, goes and revs quietly and freely, with an eight-speed gearbox. Handling is secure, reassuring and never exciting but always capable. I’d have one of these over an Audi A4 or Mercedes C-Class.

Pros
  • Decent ride and handling
  • Decent standard equipment

  • Expensive for what’s on offer

The T5 R-Design has the same 247bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox. It looks great, too, with far tauter lines in the metal than you’d think, while the rear-end treatment is much more effective than that of the slightly blobby S90. The minimal yet stylish interior makes the S60 pleasant and relaxing on the morning commute.

Pros
  • Sophisticated interior
  • Comfortable to drive

  • Lacklustre handling

The Volvo's engine is coarser when it's working as well, but otherwise it's a nicely refined package. Both cars' eight-speed automatic transmissions were superbly smooth and rarely got caught out switching between power sources. The Volvo is faster and rides as well as the BMW, plus its powertrain is punchy yet smooth while delivering strong fuel efficiency.

Pros
  • Punchy powertrain
  • Lots of safety tech
  • Excellent fuel efficiency
Cons
  • Cheap to run
  • Lack of boot space

The new Volvo S60 is for sale in the tough compact executive saloon market. With R-Design and Polestar models being offered from launch, Volvo is aiming to deliver a sporty drive with its new saloon. Rivals for the S60 include the usual suspects: the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class, Audi A4 and Jaguar XE.

Pros
  • Cheap to drive

Cons
  • No diesel engines

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Volvo's interior is among the best in class, with a simple yet elegant design and high-quality materials used throughout. Wind and road noise are hushed even at motorway speeds, and engine noise is very well isolated. There's lots of legroom in the back, although the £1,200 sunroof does eat into headroom. The S60 isn't as good to drive nor as comfortable as some of its key rivals.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
  • Good standard equipment
Cons
  • Not as good to drive as rivals
  • Not as comfortable as rivals

, but without feeling skittish. For a saloon car, it's a lot of fun, and yet it doesn't sacrifice ride quality. It's a little firm, but nowhere near as unsettled as the Volvo on a rough road. Our car's adaptive dampers are expensive, but probably one of few options that are worth adding. From 30-50mph in third and fourth, it took 2.8 and 3.5 seconds respectively.

Pros
  • Well-damped and comfortable ride

Volvo S60 is one of the nicest-looking saloon in the business. Inscription car makes such smooth, refined progress that you'll have to keep a close eye on the speedometer. Cabin quality is almost unimpeachable, with a soft-touch dashboard and a luxurious-feeling steering wheel.

From a standstill, the S60 races to 62mph in just 4.2 seconds. The addition of a strut brace under the bonnet has given the Polestar Engineered S60 a tighter feel compared with the standard T8 R-Design. There's a slightly crisper feel to the steering, and the new six-piston Brembo brakes give a much more progressive feel. But it's hardly any quicker than a T8.

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The T8 Polestar Engineered brings something new and a little different to the fast car party. It suffers from the brilliance of its rivals, but we love the throttle and damping, as well as its stealthy, badass, looks. It's not fast or focused enough to seriously challenge the BMW M3, nor is it as charismatic to drive as the six-cylinder Mercedes-AMG C43. But what it does do well is cover ground quickly, quietly and without fuss.

Pros
  • Impressive handling
  • Impressive damping and body control
  • Excellent interior quality
Cons
  • Not fast enough to challenge the BMW M3
  • Bassy low-speed ride

The S60's cabin is beautifully crafted, with loads of leather, contrast stitching and upscale materials. R-Design models feature Nappa leather-covered seats that are dressed up with fabric accents. An entry-level, front-drive, S60 Momentum model can be had for right around $37,000.

With the dampers tuned somewhere between medium and medium-well, the S60 Polestar Engineered delivers a compliant ride. The steering has nice weight to its action but feels a little numb on center, but at least the wheel itself is a joy to hold. There's a boatload of driver-assistance tech standard, including adaptive cruise control.
