Swiss carmaker Volvo has developed the new Volvo S60, a model that combines style and comfort under one roof. The carmaker established a starting price of $38.170 as tested. The new car is available with all-wheel drive and its price is a lot lower than any other leather-seated AWD German model. The S60 T5 only requires regular fuel, in case you were wondering. Its 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine found under the hood is capable of producing 250 horsepower and 266 lb. ft. of torque. This output is quite impressive, but not like the T6 capable of generating 300 horsepower or the high-pressure turbo-five.
For example, the older engine was not capable of delivering power in a linear way and here is where the difference of feel comes from. The new engine provides all this and more. For the interior, the Swiss carmaker offers different elements that are beautifully designed finished. If you happen to be on one of the front seats, get ready for a true experience as the seats are very comfy. In terms of ride, know that is well controlled and compliant without float and very comfortable as well. The new Volvo S60 T5 has a high-tech chassis and this is one of the best things Volvo can be proud off. The trunk has a decent size and the access is great in comparison with the previous S60. Its back glass extends far to the rear and takes a lot of the space that belonged once to the trunk lid.
The access slot is smaller and the hinges a take a piece out of it too. The good thing though, is that they are trimmed in so the risk of crushing the cargo does not exist. We mentioned the incredible front seats, but know that the rear ones are also comfortable despite the fact that the cushion may be a little bit lower than some passengers might like. The ones over six-four-two may also have difficulties with the legroom. We have to admit, the new Volvo S60 T5 is a decent choice in terms of design, space and price.
