Benefits of Driving a 2014 Volvo S60 Sedan

The Volvo S60 is priced between about $32,000 and $46,000, putting it in competition with plenty of other entry level luxury sedans from Europe. Unlike entries from BMW and Audi however, the base Volvo comes equipped with a 5-cylinder powerplant that makes significantly more horsepower than the 4-cylinder engines utilized in the base 3-series and Audi A4. This value disparity is echoed up through the S60 lineup, with the Volvo S60 giving buyers more car, more engine and more features for their money.

What's new for 2014?

The Volvo S60 gets redesigned styling for 2014. The biggest change is to the front end, which manages to look both more conventional and sportier at the same time. The rear end also gets updates to the taillights and the exhaust pipes. Inside, Volvo has increased the sporting quotient of the S60 by adding paddle shifters to the steering wheel on select models. The software controlling the transmission has also been improved, allowing for quicker shifts during spirited driving.

Model Strengths

  • Sporty styling, competitive price, strong performance, available all-wheel-drive, plenty of safety features

Model Review

The 2014 Volvo S60 comes with an option of two different engines, each connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. T5-trimmed Volvos come with a 2.5L turbocharged 5-cylinder making 250 horsepower and a very impressive 266 foot pounds of torque. T6 S60s come with a 3.0L V6 making 300 horsepower or, in R-design trim 325 horsepower. T6 Volvos come with all-wheel-drive as standard, though it's a $2,000 option across the entire T5 line as well.

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.
