The S60 is a compact executive sedan available in 240hp, 258 lb-ft 2.0-liter turbo or 302 hp, 295 lb-ft 2.0-liter turbo and supercharged variants. All are available with either front or all-wheel drive (excepting the AWD only R-Design) and an 8-speed automatic transmission is standard throughout. Despite its age, performance and economy is still competitive for the segment.
The decent refinement and firm but comfortable ride is complemented by a high standard of available safety systems such as a pedestrian collision avoidance feature. The extended wheelbase variants are a welcome oddity in this class too.
