S60L - China Rules!
This is the first major Chinese car exported to the USA- I got the S60 Inscription, Platinum from Princeton Volvo. We were looking for a car for long trips up to Canada that is both comfortable and fuel efficient. I looked at Lexus, Audi and VW cars (we had a Honda, and had a bad reliability experience with the Mercedes E320 wagon). The Audi is more quiet, but has a smaller interior with a smaller fuel tank - for long trips we really appreciated both the larger cabin, and the good fuel mileage. We recently did 1000 miles up to Canada and back and can testify that the car performed very well. Our son was comfortable in the back reading - in the Honda he got motion sickness. In particular, while some journalists do not like the adaptive cruse control, I found it fantastic - once one gets use to using it, it makes long drives on moderately busy freeways much much more enjoyable and stress free. The S60L has a longer wheel base which reduce handling, but increases stability - the car performed perfectly on busy highways with large trucks that can blow a car around. Many journalists complained about the lack of a touch screen - I strictly preferred the S60 to both the S90 and Audi A4- the navigation screen is perfect - I find the heads up display very distracting, and once one gets the hang of it, the S60 system is efficient - the hardest thing to do is enter an address, but with Volvo on call this is easy - find the address on ones phone and then send to the car. The negatives are the following - small trunk - holds about 4 roll-ons plus a bit - we got the spare tire that reduces trunk space (which for long trips is something we value - being stuck on a highway with a flat at 2am is not great). Second, one can put a Class 2 hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier, but for the moment there are no roof racks for the Inscription - Rhino Rack says they may do them in the future, but Thule (and hence Volvo) says they will not do them - so I would not recommend the car for a family that needs more space - with roof racks and a cargo box, the car could be a good family car - large cabin plus comfortable, but precise ride. Finally, the car can use regular gas, but 89 octane gets 12% better mileage, so we will use that going forward. Overall, we would get the same car again, unless there is a V60 Inscription, which would solve the lack of cargo space, while giving more cabin space.
Sporty yet safe
I am thrilled with the Volvo S60 AWD Inscription Platinum. It is a joy to drive. Hugs the road in a sporty way yet the ride is smoothe and quiet. They have every safety feature available. My 17 year old daughter even loves it and thinks it's sporty and stylish and the Harmon Kardon stereo is with the upgrade.
Outstanding
I know this brand very well, this is my 5th Volvo. Safety is of utmost importance to me, and the quality is great too. I enjoy having peace of mind when I am on the road. Love to travel and it is good to have peace of mind. I wanted something bigger, but it's me alone most of the time. So I got another S60. The sales associate Ingrid was there through the process and was helpful and not pushy, we had a good footing from the introduction. Made the sale go smoothly almost effortless. Great place, personnel and friendly people that make you feel welcomed.

The 2017 Volvo S60's aggressive wedge styling sharply droops the nose down to give an attractive stance. It looks so modern, so up-to-date, that's it's hard to believe this second-generation S60 has been on sale since the 2011 model year. Entering its sixth year, this still is a handsome, exciting-looking entry-level luxury sedan.

Volvo sells the S60 in several different trims The S60 T5 Dynamic is well equipped and powered by a turbocharged version of Volvo's latest Drive-E family of four-cylinder engines. (The Drive-E four-cylinder engine will power all Volvos in the foreseeable future and has already established itself as capable in the larger S90 sedan and XC90 crossover.) The S60 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged version that produces 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It feeds the front wheels through a new eight-speed automatic transmission. And yes, all-wheel drive is an option.

The S60 T5 Inscription model adds more equipment and a wheelbase that's stretched 3.1 inches for some extra legroom in the back. It uses the same engine and transmission as the Dynamic and Volvo also offers it with all-wheel drive.

The T6 AWD R-Design is only available with all-wheel drive and comes bursting with neat details in the interior, plus a 302-hp turbocharged and supercharged version of the Drive-E 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.The stretched wheelbase is not an option here, however.

And at the top of the trim levels is the mighty Polestar, with its new-for-2017 Drive-E 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, turbocharged and supercharged to the tune of 345 hp. It's only available with all-wheel drive, a suspension tuned for track heroics and massive wheels and tires. It's the least Volvo-like Volvo that Volvo sells: a supercar cleverly disguised as a mild-mannered Swedish sedan.

Fuel economy on the S60 is good. The front-drive S60 Dynamic is EPA rated at 29 mpg combined (25 city/ 36 highway). The hyperactive Polestar is rated at 23 mpg combined (20 city/27 highway). Anyone who cares about fuel economy likely isn't shopping for a Polestar.

When it comes to safety, there's plenty (this is Volvo, after all). The features that are standard include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and whiplash-reducing front head restraints. Low-speed frontal collision warning and collision mitigation with automatic braking (City Safety) systems are standard and can help the driver avoid a collision with other vehicles or a run-in with a stationary object at speeds of up to 19 mph by automatically applying the brakes if reaction from the driver isn't quick enough.

With literally dozens of cars from which to choose, the entry-level luxury sedan category is difficult to navigate without a guide. Edmunds is here to help you find the 2017 Volvo S60 that's right for you.
