Volvo S60 Models and S60 History

The Volvo S60 sedan was introduced in 2001, designed to replace the aging S70, which was discontinued afterwards. In 2002, Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA), traction control and an emergency trunk release handle were made standard features. Updates for 2003-2004 included optional add-ons and trim level tweaks. A new front fascia as well as headlamps, a grille and bumper, rocker sills (lower) and LED tail lights were part of the major changes made for 2005. Other updates included, flat-blade wipers, redesigned front seats and major updates to all trim levels and optional packages.


No major changes were in store for 2006. But in 2008, new front fascias debuted as did stability control and a new tire pressure monitoring system. 2008 saw only changes to different trims, with 2009 bringing a laundry list of previously optional features to the standard lineup. In 2010, Volvo cut the ribbons on a brand new design for the S60. 2011 saw trim level shuffling with automated wipers and headlamp washers made standard. A new style was introduced for 2014, offering a sleeker frame with new seats, an updated gauge cluster and metallic interior accents.
