Benefits of Driving a 2013 Volvo S60 Sedan

Volvo's handsome S60 is the Swedish carmaker's strongest international superstar sedan yet, and it covers all bases in the realms of design, performance and safety. The entry-level T5 offers excellent turbocharged power and now the sure-footedness of all-wheel drive, while the 3.0L T6 and T6 R-Design models offer standard all-wheel drive and world-class performance. As always, safety features abound on the S60, and the overall package provides stiff competition to everything from the cars of the BMW 3-Series to offerings from Acura, Lexus and Infiniti.

What's new for 2013?

Following a significant redesign back in 2011 and the introduction of the entry-level 2.5L turbocharged T5 model last year, Volvo's popular S60 enters 2013 with subtle updates to keep it fresh and exciting. Most notable is the availability of Haldex all-wheel drive on turbocharged T5 models, a feature previously found on T6 models alone. More changes in the T5's mechanicals include a revised compression ratio and engine management to allow for faster shifts from the 6-speed automatic transmission and improved acceleration; Volvo claims a 0 to 60 mph time of 6.4 seconds in front-wheel drive models. Additionally, the Dynamic Package has been dropped, rear heated seats are now an option and trim levels have been labeled Premier, Premier Plus and Platinum.

Model Strengths

  • Impressive handling performance
  • innovative safety features
  • powerful, efficient turbocharged engines
  • all-wheel drive available across the lineup

Model Review

With its 2011 redesign of the S60 sedan, Volvo served notice to other sport sedan makers of the world. Good things continue in 2013 with new features across the board.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
