volvo S60
Theres more to you than a new
car. Theres the courage to dare.
Theres the curiosity to explore.
Theres the thirst for passion and
the hunger for excitement. Theres
the hunt for experiences that are
unique and for emotions that take
you to thrilling places. Thats what
the stunning Volvo S60 does.
Thats why you drive one.
Sexy. Volvo. Same sentence.
Introducing the first Volvo to freely inspire the use of adjectives and superlatives
rarely mentioned by those not on the payroll. A masterwork of automotive design,
Volvo S60 is so beautiful that we suppose pedestrians could be stunned when
they first see it. So we invented a safety system for them - a world first. But
make no mistake. This is a drivers car. It moves like no Volvo before. Too sexy
to be the safest car ever? We can live with that.
A first-class tribute to punctuality.
The advanced chassis developed for the Volvo S60 makes clear that this is no ordinary Volvo. Utilizing
innovative new technology, we have further refined Volvos Stability-enhancing DSTC system to help drivers
better realize their intentions - with more assertion, efficiency and dare we say, more pure driving enjoyment.
For example, the Advanced Stability Control feature monitors the cars behavior with high precision -
making micro-adjustments with maximum speed - to further enhance stability in sharp curves and with
rapid lateral movements. Corner Traction Control through torque vectoring also helps your car pivot around
bends with more grace by braking the inner wheel and redistributing engine torque to the outside wheel.
It also improves acceleration when turning onto a road with faster traffic. And if you want even more
driving dynamics, just activate the DSTC Sport Mode via Volvo Sensus and anti-skid becomes pro-fun.
Engineered into every Volvo is the power to avoid trouble and the structure to
minimize harm. The engine in your Volvo is also an excellent representative of this
philosophy. Fact is, every Volvo engine is built to do more with less: respond instantly,
with plenty of torque, throughout its entire rev range and do so using less fuel.
The Volvo S60 offers you three engine choices. In the T5, the powerfully efficient
2.5 liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine provides 250 horsepower, 266 ft/lb of
torque (plus a maximum over-boost to 295 ft-lb). The 3.0 liter twin-scroll turbo-
charged engine in the T6, provides a fuel efficient 300 horsepower, 325 ft/lb of
torque and for the ultimate Swedish performance experience - choose the iconic
S60 T6 R-DESIGN tuned by Polestar Racing to deliver a stunning 325 hp and 354 lb/
ft torque.
Now, with the T5 AWD model, All Wheel Drive is available on every S60*. Utilizing an
electronically controlled AWD system from Haldex, the S60 now has the traction
abilities to take on all variations of road and weather conditions. And on dry roads,
the tractive abilities and precision handling from the AWD system help to lessen
over-steer and under-steer conditions so you can enjoy the total driving experience.
Even the Volvo K-PAX racing team believes AWD delivers an edge on the race track,
particularly when it rains.
* Standard on T5 AWD, T6 and T6 R-DESIGN
Driver-focused design.
Road-focused driver.
All-systems go.
The Volvo S60 makes no apologies for this drivers-oriented interior. The
standard sport seats come with extra lateral-g support. In addition, the center
console is angled to favor the drivers side and features the new driver control
interface - Volvo Sensus. This intuitive computer command system uses a 7"
hi-resolution color monitor and a scroll wheel selector on the steering wheel
to make it easy to personalize settings and get the most from all of your
on-board technology.

Innovative safety from the people
who wrote the book.
Its no secret. Volvo makes its cars safer with innovations that lead the car industry. City Safety - standard in the S60
- is one of the most significant technological breakthroughs in collision avoidance and another Volvo world first.
But no matter how many safety innovations and patents we have, the most important safety feature in any car is the
driver, a well-informed driver. Thats why Volvo has developed the Technology Package.
These innovative driver support systems engage, inform and involve drivers in a driving experience few would have
thought possible 85 years ago - if it wasnt for our heritage of doing just that. Maybe thats why a well-informed driver
drives a Volvo. To see this supportive technology in action, please visit
Not the first Swedish beauty
that likes to avoid people.
But certainly the first car
that can.
It is not likely, yet still possible, for a pedestrian to ignore your
beautiful Volvo S60 and step into your path. Fortunately, the
worlds first pedestrian-avoidance technology is available now.
Using a digital camera and radar to constantly scan the road
ahead, shapes identified as people at risk will trigger a warning.
More importantly, the system will employ full brake force to stop
your vehicle - if you dont. Our experts call it Pedestrian
Detection with Full Auto brake*, but you can simply call it
another Volvo safety world first.
* Included in the optional Technology Package
Technology we love:
Radar-guided brakes that
help you go faster.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with queue assist*, goes beyond
the basic accelerator management of ordinary cruise control
by working with the advanced braking system. The interaction
between your cars stop-quicker and go-faster functions
managed by ACC - and informed by continuous input from
its camera and radar scouts on point - helps you maintain a
comfortable speed and a safe distance from vehicles ahead.
And thats at any speed - whether in heavy traffic queues or
at open-road speeds (0-124 mph). Having this additional
functionality can help save you from the most boring parts
of any journey. In this way, you can just sail through traffic.
* Included in the optional Technology Package
What we know:
A rear-end collision is not the best
way to meet people.
With a goal to automatically eliminate the most common (and embarrassing) type
of accident - the low-speed (below 31 mph) rear-end collision - Volvo created
City Safety. This remarkable collision avoidance and mitigation technology
- standard with the Volvo S60 - uses a closing-velocity laser sensor that tracks
the car immediately ahead of you and constantly calculates how much braking
force is needed to come to a full-stop before meeting them unintentionally.
If the system senses an imminent exchange of personal information and insurance
forms, it will automatically brake. Clearly, this technology can save you from more
than embarrassment.
Professional driver.
Favorite track.
Testing Premium Sound System.
Every component of the Volvo S60 is thoroughly tested to meet the highest standards,
with no detail is too small to perfect. For example, even the 650-watt Premium Sound
system* - with MultEQ XT anti-distortion technology from Audyssey Labratories, Class D
digital amplification, 12 high-output speakers, a standard multi media DVD player and a
high resolution 7" color screen - is tested to the limits to deliver inspiring performance. The
Volvo S60 is one of a selected number of vehicles that offer such innovative technology
for the sound system. MultEQ XT removes distortion caused by the cars cabin acoustics
and provides crisp clear sound.
* Included in the Platinum trim level
Beautiful escape.
Safe return.
Repeat as needed.
As fun as the Volvo S60 is to drive, there are times when youll have to park
it. And leave it. One last glance over the shoulder offers some comfort, but
having the right technology in hand could provide more security. Specifically,
we recommend carrying an intelligent key fob, Volvos Keyless Drive with
Personal Car Communicator (PCC)*. With it, you can check the security
status of your car from a distance and upon return, your Volvo lets you
unlock doors with a grasp of a handle and start your car without a key in
hand - its enough to have the key in your pocket or handbag.
* Included in T5 Premier trim level, standard T6 and R-DESIGN
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Queue Assist automatically
maintains your set speed and distance to the vehicle ahead of
you - whether youre driving on the highway or in slow moving
stop and go traffic. Included in the optional Technology Package.
Innovated for your enjoyment,
the Volvo safety technologies will
protect more than the fun of driving.
Across the world, Volvo equals safety. And that comes with good reason, because few
carmakers can match our record of safety innovations and the commitment for safety that has
guided us for more than 85 years. Of course, this makes us extremely proud. But were not
satisfied. Because we know what we want to achieve: zero accidents. This vision calls for
innovative thinking and a brand new approach to the way we design cars. Good news is weve
already come a long way. For starters, our cars are more fun and engaging to drive than ever
(because a bored driver will never be a safe driver). Neither is the technology needed any
figment of the imagination - some are already available. This means driving a Volvo today is
like having a first peek at a very exciting automotive future - a future where passionate
engineering and design do more to help you get the most out of life.

To help minimize its total environmental impact,
every Volvo is designed to facilitate recovery
and recycling at the end of its useful life.
Designed to catch the light brilliantly,
this car also reflects a promise.
Thankfully, the automotive industry is moving away from fantasyland to the real world. Our
journey towards a better environment started already in the early 70s. Then we were among
the first carmakers to acknowledge the environmental downside of cars and to do something
about it. Since then we are constantly innovating to reduce the environmental impact of the
cars and how we make them.
Were introducing new technology such as plug-in hybrid vehicles that will further reduce
CO2 emissions and can be charged from a standard wall socket. And were heavily engaged
in the development of electrical vehicles - a technology that will dramatically reduce the
environmental footprint of our cars and make them even more fun to drive.
Cleaner exhaust.
Good for you, and for the world we share.
Fast responding after a cold start, Volvos advanced
