Ever since Volvo first unveiled the all-new 2018 V60 wagon, we've been waiting to see its sedan counterpart. Now the wait is over and Volvo has pulled the wraps off the 2019 S60 mid-size premium sedan. The Volvo S60 is a predictably beautiful car sharing a very similar look with the V60, except, of course, for the back.

The new S60 was unveiled at the Volvo plant in Charleston, South Carolina, which was inaugurated on the same day as the unveiling. The 2019 S60 will be the first Volvo to be manufactured in the U.S. at this new facility.

"The new S60 is one of the most exciting Volvo cars we've ever made," said Hakan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars. "It is a true driver's car that gives us a strong position in the U.S. and China sedan markets, creating more growth opportunities for Volvo Cars."

Volvo referring to the S60 as a "sports sedan" puts it in the territory of established German competitors like the BMW 3-Series, the Audi A4 and the Mercedes-Benz C Class. Indeed, the engine options in the new S60 are slated to make the car a proper sports sedan.

The base engine is the T5, which is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 that makes 250 horsepower. From there, you can upgrade to the T6, which is both turbocharged and supercharged and makes 310 hp. Another option is a plug-in hybrid using the T6 engine which makes a combined 340 hp. Finally, the strongest engine in the new S60 is the T8, which is only available as a hybrid and makes 400 hp or 415 if you opt for the high-performance Polestar Engineered package which also upgrades the wheels, brakes and suspension.

Like all other Volvos, front-wheel-drive is standard and all-wheel-drive is optional. However, if you want a FWD Volvo, your only engine option is the T5. A T5 FWD S60 starts at $35,800, which prices the car right in line with other luxury sedan competitors. That price gets higher as you advance in engines and through the three trims: The base Momentum, the sporty R-Design and the luxurious Inscription.

The S60 continues Volvo's reputation for safety with technology like Autobrake emergency braking and the optional Pilot Assist system, which can assist with steering, acceleration and braking to help avoid accidents. Other technology in the S60 includes the Sensus Connect infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

With a striking design inside and out, top safety features and promising performance, the all-new 2019 Volvo S60 is poised to be a serious player in a very competitive segment.
