Overview

The Volvo S60 enters a new generation with its 2011 model. The S60 is a sporty, performance-oriented midsize sedan with a turbocharged engine and a long list of standard or optional luxury and high-tech features. The new S60 is slightly bigger than the previous generation, and promises enhanced safety and versatility, Volvo says.

The 2011 Volvo S60 comes in a single trim, with various packaged and stand-alone options. (A lesser-equipped trim will be available later in the model year.) Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, sport suspension, leather upholstery, a full menu of power accessories (including an 8-way power driver's seat), dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, 8-speaker sound system, and much more. The Premium option package includes a sunroof, adaptive xenon headlights, and a power passenger seat. Other option packages add adaptive cruise control, state-of-the-art safety features, navigation system, premium sound system, and other upgrades. Stand-alone options include different suspension systems, keyless entry and ignition, rear-seat entertainment system, and more. Trunk capacity is 12 cubic feet, according to Volvo, and the rear seats and front passenger seat fold down for more cargo space.

The 2011 Volvo S60's base engine is a turbocharged, 300-horsepower, 3.0-liter, inline 6-cylinder unit that produces 325 lb.-ft. of torque; it delivers 17 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. It works with a 6-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. A 5-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive will be offered later in the year.

The 2011 Volvo S60's standard safety features include anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, stability control, traction control, rollover protection, front side air bags, side curtain air bags, and a City Safety feature that automatically applies brakes in certain hazardous situations. Various high-tech safety features are optional, including one that detects pedestrians (and stops for them) if the driver doesn't. A blind-spot warning system is also optional.

Starting MSRP for the 2011 Volvo S60 is $37,700.
