S60 sedans use the P2 platform of the S80 and V70 yet measure inches less in wheelbase and body length. This year there are four models with S60 2.5T FWD, S60 2.5T AWD, S60 T5 FWD and racy S60 R AWD. 2.5T models come with Volvo's 2.5-liter light-pressure turbo for 208 hp through a five-speed automatic with optional Geartronic mode.

T5 stocks a 2.4-liter high-pressure turbo rated at 257 hp with a six-speed manual or optional five-speed Geartronic automatic. And powerful S60 R has the 300-hp 2.5-liter turbo with twin inter-coolers plus new "Instant Traction" AWD and shifting by a close-ratio six-speed manual or optional new six-speed Geartronic automatic.

For the R car, a new sport body package brings color-coordinated front and rear spoilers plus lower body side sills, while the premium package plants a premium audio kit in the dash with CD changer for six discs.
