2009 model year changes
For its last year before a major redesign, the mid-size S60 gets expanded standard features for 2009, although price across the line increase considerably. Sport leather seats, a power glass sunroof, and wood trim are now among the standard features, and Geartronic manual control is now included with the automatic transmission in all trims. T5 equipment is also stepped up, with all the contents of the former Advanced Package now standard; they include a 325-watt surround-sound system, 6-disc changer, brushed aluminum handles, active bi-xenon headlamps, and rear park assist. Across the model line the number of colors has been reduced; Willow Green, Magic Blue and Maple Red are no longer available.

Special features for 2009
Even though the S60 has continued for many years now essentially unchanged--and is slated to be replaced by a redesigned version next year--styling is still a selling point for the S60, which has a look that stands out in a crowded parking lot. The S60 isn't bargain-priced relative to other vehicles in its class, but it does include much more standard equipment than rival vehicles; so if you want to have a very well equipped vehicle it's still a good deal. The 2.5T AWD model is a nice, luxurious car for those who have to frequently drive on slick roads, while the S60 is a great choice overall for long-haul drivers because of the top-notch seats.
