The 2008 S60 is Volvo's entry into a highly competitive European midsize sedan market that includes Audi's A4, BMW's 3-Series, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The design has been around since 2000, but Volvo has done much to keep it fresh, including an exterior styling update in 2007. With competitive pricing, ample standard equipment, premium options, and plenty of performance from either of its turbocharged engines, the Volvo S60 represents a safe, smart, distinctive alternative to any other midsize sedan on the road.
For 2008, the high-performance Volvo S60 R has been discontinued, leaving the T5 as the top-of-the-line model, which this year is available only with a five-speed Geartronic automatic transmission. It now comes standard with leather seating, power sunroof, rearview mirror compass, satellite radio capability, and 17-inch Cassiopeia wheels. All trim levels--2.5T, 2.5T AWD, T5--offer new option packages that include premium sound systems.
The loss of the 300-horsepower S60 R means that just two power options are available on Volvo's entry-level sedan for 2008. The base 2.5T relies on a low-boost, turbocharged 208-horsepower 2.5L inline five-cylinder to drive its front wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission, while the 2.5R AWD uses the same setup to power all four wheels, accompanied by Volvo's Instant Traction delivery system. The S60 T5 derives its power from a high-boost, 257-horsepower turbocharged 2.4L I5 that delivers 258 lb-ft of torque. It is available in front-wheel drive only and comes standard with Volvo's five-speed Geartronic transmission with manual shift mode.
