A carry-over from 2006, the S60 is a four-door five-passenger luxury sedan offered in three different models. First, the 2.5T comes with a 2.5-liter I5 engine that produces 208 horsepower linked to a five-speed automatic transmission, with an optional five-speed automatic. The 2.5T is also available in all-wheel-drive. There is also the T5, which increases the horsepower to 257, and the top-of-the-line R model, which puts out 300 horsepower linked to a six-speed manual transmission with an optional six-speed automatic.Read more Read less
The Volvo S60 gets a number of minor changes to both its appearance and equipment list for 2007. On the outside, the S60 gets a new grille and front bumper, and the available front spoiler has been redesigned for a sleeker look. A rear wing spoiler is now optional, and lower-body cladding has been body-color coordinated. Side mirrors have been redesigned with integrated turn signals. Inside, the T5 model gets a new watch-dial-inspired gauge cluster such as that used in the S60 R, and the upholstery has been revamped. The options list has been revised and simplified into packages. A surround sound system with six-disc changer is now included in the Sport Package, and active bi-xenon headlamps are now a standalone option. A new color, Passion Red, replaces Ruby Red in the lineup, while Solid Black is deleted. Puddle lights are also no longer offered. The S60's suspension has been retuned, with a firmer overall setting for improved handling. All models are now equipped with the dynamic stability traction control (DSTC) system.
Distinctive appearance inside and out; fabulous seats; performance (T5 and R); safety.
The mid-size 2007 Volvo S60 sedans have more of a performance edge than Volvo has typically had in its mainstream sedans; each of the S60 models have turbocharged powertrains, and the suspension has been retuned this year for an even sportier handling feel. Of course, safety remains one of the S60's main selling points. Meanwhile, the S60 R still ranks as one of the best gentleman's sport sedans, bringing surprisingly good performance along with good long-distance ride comfort.
