While it may appear to be a sporty saloon, the S60 offers a comforting and steady drive as well as punchy acceleration.
With just over 400bhp available in the T8 Polestar Engineered Plug-In Hybrid model, it is the fastest Saloon that Volvo has ever produced. The Mild Hybrid S60s are no slouches either, powered by a 250bhp, 2.0 litre petrol engine with a 0-62mph time of just 6. seconds.
The S60’s 250bhp is also an improvement on its rivals, the Mercedes-Benz C Class and the BMW 3 Series. With the comparable engines offering slightly less in performance stats than the Volvo.
For fuel consumption, both the R-Design and the Inscription are available as Mild Hybrid variants. Volvo's claimed CO2 emissions for the two stand between 153-170g/km and they are capable of roughly 37.7-41.5mpg. Meanwhile, the the Polestar Engineered versions emit between 39-56g/km - a great choice for those looking for a lower emission car.
