Learn about the Updated 2017 Volvo S60

Perhaps the biggest change for the 2017 Volvo S60 is the engine lineup. For the past few years, Volvo has been streamlining its engine lineup and replacing larger powertrains with turbocharged and/or supercharged 4-cylinders. For the 2017 model year, the S60 finally joins the other models. The 2016 S60 T5 AWD's 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine is no longer available. Instead, you now have a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that can also be supercharged. With just the turbocharging, it has 240 horsepower. When it is supercharged, the output increases to 302 horses, and the S60 Polestar gets 362 horsepower.


Another adjustment to the mechanical components of the S60 for 2017 is that every trim level is offered with all-wheel drive, giving you confidence during the winters in Virginia. You will also notice that the former 6-speed automatic transmission is gone, replaced by the 8-speed one found on the Volvo's 90 series models. The S60 also now offers two different 18-inch alloy wheel choices, both of which are new with unique new wheels for the R-Design. The exterior colors have expanded to now include Mussel Blue and Luminous Sand, with Bursting Blue available on the R-Design. Volvo updated the On Call smartphone app to include calendar integration and Windows 10 compatibility. The S60 also adds CleanZone, the latest Volvo filtration technology, to give you a clean, breathable cabin.

Explore the Volvo S60's History

Volvo introduced the S60 sedan in 2001 as a replacement for the S70, which was growing old. Designers made traction control, an emergency trunk release handle, and Emergency Brake Assistance standard in 2002. For 2005, the Volvo S60 received updates to the front fascia, bumper, grille, headlamps, and lower rocker sills, along with LED taillights. Less noticeable changes for the same year were redesigned front seats, flat-blade wipers, and adjustments to the option packages and trim levels. 


The 2008 S60 saw new front fascias once again along with a new tire pressure monitoring system and stability control. For 2009, a long list of features that had previously been optional became standard, including wood trim, a power glass sunroof, and sport leather seats. The Volvo S60 is currently in its second generation, which began in 2010. The 2013 S60 saw a major refresh, bringing it closer to the current model you will find new at your Virginia dealership.
