KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 9/4/2013


The handsome 2014 Volvo S60 has a new front end treatment that makes it look even better than before, if that's possible. In addition, the interior is one of the most accommodating in the segment, performance is commendably eager, handling is responsive and predictable and, to top it all, there's Volvo's long-standing and impeccable reputation for the utmost in safety features and occupant protection. Depending upon trim level, there are three strong and efficient engines from which to choose, with the strongest delivering 325 horsepower and, for those who must deal with bad weather and slick roads, all-wheel drive is available. All wrapped up in that sleekly elegant exterior, and with competitive pricing, the Volvo S60 deserves serious consideration. That's why we named it one of the 10 Best Luxury Cars Under $40,000 for 2014.

You'll Like This Car If...

For those who want a first-class and highly-attractive sports sedan in the European mode, and also want to stand out from the crowd, the 2014 Volvo S60 looks great, goes quick and sets the standard in safety features.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The 2014 Volvo S60 is certainly no slouch in performance and handling but, if what matters to you is having not only the capability but also the image, you'll probably look elsewhere.

What's New for 2014

The 2014 Volvo S60 has an all-new front end. Inside, there's a new instrument cluster and trim treatments. The option packages are upgraded, and there's a new Sport Package and a Blind Spot Information System Package, an enhanced Tire Pressure Monitoring System, additional stand-alone options and some new paint colors.

Driving It Driving Impressions

We have spent a considerable time behind the wheel of the Volvo S60 T5 with all-wheel drive (AWD) and, even though it unfortunately did not cover pavement layered in rain, snow, hail, sleet or any other foul-weather treatment, that drive did prove that the S60 with the all-wheel drive has a high level of capability, poise and confidence-inspiring stability – and the front-drive version of the S60 earns some pretty high marks in its own right. Starting from the "base" end of the line, the T5 and its Touring Chassis is intended for a comfortable ride but is no slouch in the sporty handling department. The Dynamic Chassis of the T6 AWD model, with its more powerful engine, adds considerable response when the driving becomes more enthusiastic. For the die-hard corner carvers, the R-Design version and its Sports Chassis are the perfect choice. Still, we figure the Touring Chassis will be the best pick for most Volvo buyers.

Favorite Features

PEDESTRIAN DETECTION WITH FULL AUTO BRAKE
Saying the name takes longer than the feature takes to save a life. The technology alerts the driver to a potential collision with a pedestrian and stops the car as quickly as possible if the driver doesn't immediately react.

COMPREHENSIVE OCCUPANT PROTECTION
Nothing beats a Volvo when it comes to the comprehensiveness of the safety package, and the S60 certainly holds up the brand's reputation in this vital department. After all, why do so many people buy a Volvo?
