2020 Volvo S60 Hybrid Trims & Specs

The Volvo S60 T8 is available in two basic trims, both sharing the same powertrain and output: The R-Design and Inscription, although a third is available in the limited-to-20 Polestar Engineered variant. Both variants are propelled by a pair of electric motors that supplement thrust from a turbo- and supercharged 2.0-liter four-pot, for a combined output of 400 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque, while the Polestar models gets 415 hp and 494 lb-ft. An eight-speed automatic gearbox is the only option, sending power to all four 18-inch wheels (19s on the Polestar).

A number of safety and convenience features are standard on both models, with the slightly more expensive Inscription trim having access to optional massaging front seats. The R-Design is the sportier of the two, bearing a bespoke set of seats and a unique steering wheel and gear-lever. The exterior is also characterized by gloss black accents, while the Inscription model is trimmed in genuine leather inside and features chrome accents on the exterior.

🚘What's the Price of the 2020 Volvo S60 Hybrid?

Pricing for the S60 T8 starts at $55,400 for the sporty R-Design model before destination ($995), options, and taxes. Interestingly, the Inscription - which focuses more on luxury - carries an identical asking price, despite differences in styling and certain equipment changes. The limited-availability Polestar Engineered model started at $64,800, or at $1,100 per month on the Care By Volvo subscription service. Fully loaded with options like a valet key, massaging front seats, bigger wheels, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, an upgraded Bowers & Wilkins 15-speaker sound system, and an automatic parking system, the luxurious Inscription will set you back a little over $66,000. Because this is a plug-in hybrid, the S60 T8 also qualifies for $5,000 tax credit.

🚗What 2020 Volvo S60 Hybrid Model Should I Buy?

We feel the Inscription model is by far the most appealing S60 available, but the decision to opt for the T6 or T8 will mainly depend on your living situation and daily commute. If you can charge every day only drive less than 25 miles to work, the T8 could save you money in the long run. Assuming you do opt for the T8, we suggest adding the Bowers and Wilkins audio, Luxury Seating Package, Heated Rear Seats and Steering Wheel, Park Assist Pilot, and the 19-inch wheels for a total cost of just under $64,000. Yes, that price is dangerously close to the BMW M3 but just remember, an M3 doesn't have massage seats.
