The S60 T8 Twin Engine with 400hp offers effortless performance with unmatched efficiency. It also features a selection of Drive Modes for every road. Pure mode provides the most efficient and clean drive. Power mode ensures outstanding performance.

Central to our vision of sustainability, our Drive-E powertrains are more enjoyable to drive and better for the world around us. The S60's innovative engines balance strong performance with low emissions and fuel consumption. Dynamic in all driving situations, our engines feature turbocharging technology and advanced transmissions for responsive power. The T6 engine also has a supercharger, for even more exhilarating performance. Plus, multiple Drive Modes offer precise control over the car’s powertrain.
The S60 offers a choice of Drive Modes, so you can tailor your driving experience to your mood. There are three default settings for the engine, automatic gearbox, steering, brakes and stability control system that put the focus on driving, comfort or fuel economy and emissions. You can also create your own combination with Individual mode. In plug-in hybrid models, an AWD mode is also available.
Precise steering, handling and ride comfort all work together to create a connected feeling to the road in all driving situations. Plus, the innovative rear suspension helps keep weight to a minimum for maximum agility.
Welcome to an uncluttered space that puts the focus on you. The S60’s large 9” Sensus Touchscreen is your intuitive command center. Unique air vents have slender, metal-finished controls with diamond-pattern finishes. The same finish is used for the ignition and driving mode controller. The R-Design trim highlights the sporty nature of the car, with Metal Mesh Aluminum décor panels and contrast stitching for the seats, tunnel console, doors and gearshift. The Inscription trim includes décor panels in Driftwood, a unique wood treatment.
The sculpted, supportive seats are perfectly contoured for long-distance comfort. And the feeling of sitting low to the ground puts you at one with the road. Power height adjustment comes standard. Contour seats – which are standard or optional depending on trim – provide even greater side support, as well as multi-directional lumbar support and an adjustable cushion extension.
With Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM, all the functions you love about your smartphone are seamlessly integrated onto your car’s intuitive 9” Sensus Touchscreen to help you stay well connected. Make calls, send & receive messages, enjoy music, listen to podcasts and navigate easily using the touchscreen, steering wheel controls or voice control. Sensus Connect gives you access to a range of additional apps to enjoy Internet radio and audiobooks, too.
This high-quality audio system delivers 600 watts to 14 speakers through a 12-channel amplifier, for clear and powerful sound. Developed with renowned audio brand Harman Kardon, the system precisely optimizes the response of each speaker to ensure a powerful audio experience for everyone in the car. Automatic Level Adjustment creates a consistent level of volume and intensity, while special algorithms adjust the output to compensate for external noise.
This standard safety feature helps to make accidents where a vehicle leaves the road less likely to happen. It detects if the car is about to leave the road unintentionally between 40 and 86 mph, and can use steering and braking to guide the car back onto the right path. If the car does leave the road, Run-Off Road Protection reduces the chances of serious injury. The structure of the front seat frame absorbs the impact of a hard landing, while prepared safety belts automatically tighten to hold front seat occupants in place.
Please note: the driver is responsible for how the car is controlled at all times.
The passenger compartment is reinforced with a high percentage of one of the strongest steel types available –¬ ultra high-strength boron steel – to create a protective cage around everyone in the car. In addition, crumple zones in the front and rear dissipate as much energy as possible in the event of a collision.
Make parking easier with a bird’s-eye view of your car and its immediate surroundings on your large touchscreen display. The 360° SurroundView Camera allows you to see objects or vehicles that may be hard to spot using only the windows and mirrors – and is especially useful when fitting into tight spaces.
