KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz - Updated Date: 3/21/2014


The 2015 Volvo S60 sedan is largely carryover, with the exception of what's under the hood. The new Drive-E T5 and T6 4-cylinder engines are the first in a whole new series of powerplants from the Swedish manufacturer that will eventually replace all of its current engines. They're a nicely modern addition to this car, which already boasts one of the most accommodating interiors in its class. Performance is eager, with responsive handling and, topping it off, there's Volvo's long-standing reputation for the utmost in safety features and occupant protection. The 2015 S60 comes in both front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) – although the Drive-E engines are only available on front-drive models for now – all wrapped up in a sleekly elegant exterior and competitively priced.

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 2015 Volvo S60 looks great, goes quick and sets the standard in safety features.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The 2015 Volvo S60 has the performance goods, but if you want an impressive badge to show to your friends, enemies and frenemies, you'll probably look elsewhere.

What's New for 2015

With a thorough refresh last year, the only real change to the 2015 Volvo S60 is the addition of the Drive-E 4-cylinder engines. Available in either turbocharged T5 or turbocharged and supercharged T6 models, the new engines are the first of a family that will eventually replace all of Volvo's existing engines.

Driving It Driving Impressions

As good a time as we've had driving the Volvo S60 since it was introduced a few years back, the new Drive-E engines up the ante with smooth power deliver and surprisingly good fuel economy. The front-wheel-drive T5 and T6 models feature the new engines, with the T6 offering just over 300 horsepower. It's plenty quick, too, with Volvo estimating the front-wheel-drive T6 will reach 60 mph from a standstill in just 5.6 seconds. All-wheel-drive models use the older drivetrains, but regardless of which model you choose, the S60 earns some pretty high marks. All of the S60 sedans are tuned for comfort, with a Sport package that amps up handling, but not at the expense of ride quality. For the die-hard corner carvers, the R-Design version and its Sports Chassis is the perfect choice. Still, we figure the Touring Chassis will be the best pick for most Volvo buyers.

Favorite Features

DRIVE-E
These new 4-cylinder engines put Volvo and the S60 sedan in the forefront of engine technology. Smooth, refined, powerful and fuel-efficient, they change the game for the Swedish company, making it an even better alternative to German brands.

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.
