2014 Volvo S60 Overview
The Volvo S60 is a five-seat luxury sedan that goes toe-to-toe with the BMW 3 Series, Acura TL and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The 2014 S60's mild refresh includes smoother front styling and new interior features. The S60 is available in front-or all-wheel drive with turbocharged five- and six-cylinder engines.
New for 2014
Volvo smoothens the S60's front styling for 2014 while the inside has a new dashboard and upholstery options plus available sports seats. Other changes to the exterior include new wheel designs and LED accents on the taillights.
It may take a second glance to notice what's changed, but the S60's already sleek appearance is smoother with the relocation of the daytime running lamps, new headlight design and hidden windshield washer nozzles. The grille is also wider for 2014 and uses less chrome surround. The S60 comes standard with re-designed 17- inch wheels with 18- and 19-inch wheels available. Integrated tailpipes are part of Volvo’s most recent revamp to provide a cleaner, sophisticated look. Option to equip heated windshield also available.
The S60 seats five occupants and gains an available configurable digital gauge cluster for 2014 that replaces a standard tachometer and speedometer. It's standard on T6 trim levels and is optional on T5 trim levels. Available display choices include a traditional appearance, eco theme with eco meter and green background as well as a performance theme with red background.
Other new technology includes a Sensus Connected Touch multimedia system with 7-inch display. Sensus receives an internet connection from a wireless card or mobile phone to power apps like internet radio, weather and a web browser. The inside also has newly available upholstery colors, a new headliner and authentic wood inlays. Additional options include sports seats, heated steering wheel, multimedia system with in-car apps and internet connectivity, and paddle shifters.
Under the Hood
The base S60 T5 is powered by a standard five-cylinder turbocharged engine making 250 horsepower paired with front-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. A more-powerful six-cylinder turbocharged engine is standard in T6 models making 300-hp or 325-hp in the T6 R-Design. All T6 trims have all-wheel drive. For 2014, Volvo decreases zero-to-60 mph times of T6 AWD models by .2 seconds with new transmission programming that shortens shifting times. Six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive comes standard along with touring suspensions. Additional options include Dynamic and Sports suspensions as well as an AWD drivetrain.
Volvo's City Safety technology is standard and includes a low-speed collision prevention feature that works at speeds up to 31 mph to automatically brake when a collision is detected. Standard safety features include antilock brakes, electronic stability control, and collision warning with auto brake. Additional technological safety features include pedestrian and cyclist detection, blind spot monitoring, and cross-traffic alert.
