Volvo unveiled its third-era, 2019 Volvo S60 immediately and I maintain having the identical thought — that is what the Buick Century might have advanced into if Common Motors performed its playing cards proper. That’s not a dig on the tri-defend model, the Regal is a advantageous vehicle, however the S60 is a car value getting enthusiastic about.
Unusual, because the car isn’t actually all that new. The XC60 and V60 have been round for a short while and Volvo’s sedan appears to be extra of the identical. However there are some key variations to go together with the welcome similarities (the wagon clearly has probably the most in widespread with the S60), and there’s extra to the car than simply attractiveness and fascinating specifications. The S60 represents Volvo’s first American-made car, constructed at its new $1.1 billion plant close to Charleston, South Carolina. It’s additionally the primary Volvo mannequin to forego a diesel choice.
For probably the most half, the sedan’s styling is on par with the very good-looking wagon. There’s an understated magnificence with a touch of menace, helped largely by the “Thor’s hammer” LEDs bisecting the headlamps. The bodywork is a nicely thought-out collection of muscular bulges and a few rigorously chosen exhausting edges — none of which seem overdone. There’s not a lot to fault right here.
The interior can also be similar to the V60, which additionally makes use of the model’s Scalable Product Structure. It’s principally the S90, solely extra compact, with fewer fancy trim items and a special middle armrest. Volvo’s 9-inch Sensus Join touchscreen infotainment system is standard gear and could be mated to both Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. It may possibly additionally function a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and runs a lot of apps from go.
Tech spills over into driving aides with automated braking coming standard. Volvo’s Pilot Help package deal might be optioned if you’d like the vehicle to maneuver by way of visitors (even cease-and-go) whereas sustaining its lane. Simply keep in mind to remain awake, because it’s undoubtedly not self-driving.
A 250-horsepower T5 engine serves as the bottom powerplant. Entrance-wheel drive comes standard, however consumers can choice all-wheel drive with the 316-horsepower S60 T6. There’ll even be Twin Engine plug-in hybrid variants. Whereas it’s unclear if the hybrid T6 is destined for North America (there’s no pricing information on it), the four hundred-horsepower T8 undoubtedly might be.
There’s additionally a Polestar Engineered S60 that tacks on a further 15 horsepower to the T8 whereas tightening up the suspension and brakes. It boasts gold calipers, matching seat belts, and distinctive wheels.
Pricing for the Volvo S60 (T5 Momentum) begins at $36,795, together with the $995 vacation spot charge. The T6 Momentum begins at $forty one,295 whereas the T8 doesn’t hassle itself with such a pedestrian trim. R-Design fashions will run $forty two,895 with the T5 engine, $forty six,395 with the T6, and $fifty five,395 with the T8 Twin Engine plug-in. Luxurious targeted Inscription trims prices $forty three,895 with the T5, $forty eight,395 with the T6 choice, and $fifty six,395 with the T8.
Volvo continues doing the Care by Volvo factor for the 2019 S60. Whereas this system has been a little bit of a multitude, some may discover it a superior various to leasing. Care by Volvo nets you the car, insurance coverage, and basic maintenance for a flat month-to-month price. It’s going to solely be out there on three fashions of the S60: The S60 T6 AWD with Momentum ($775 per thirty days), the S60 T6 AWD R-Design ($850 per thirty days) and the Polestar Engineered T8, which Volvo plans to launch pricing information for later.
Orders start this month, however deliveries gained’t begin till later this yr.
