2019 Volvo S60 Specs, Release Dates, Prices

The S60 is Volvo luxury 4-door midsize sedan. The new S60 shares Volvo own Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, safety technology and infotainment system with the new V60 premium mid-size wagon, as well as the 90 Series cars and the XC60, all of which have achieved industry-leading safety ratings. This makes the new 2019 Volvo S60 one of the safest cars on the road.

Like the V60 estate, the S60 carries the proud and confident face of Volvo’s design language, along with classic Volvo styling cues. Key features include the iconic “Thor’s Hammer” LED headlight design, the new grille and Volvo Iron Mark, and the expressive use of the Volvo word mark on the rear.
Inside, Volvo has taken cues from the clean, Scandinavian interior design first introduced in the 90 Series cars, raising the bar in the segment with natural materials and new details on the dashboard and instrument panel.
