2020 Volvo S60 Hybrid Review

  • Strong acceleration and braking performance
  • Wonderfully comfortable and supportive seats
  • Well-executed Pilot Assist driving aids
  • Exceptional optional Bowers & Wilkins audio system
  • Frustrating touchscreen interface
  • Standard all-season tires don't have enough performance potential
  • Blind-spot monitoring now includes steering collision avoidance
  • The virtual instrument panel is now standard on all models
  • The R-Design gains standard four-zone climate control, interior lighting and a tailored dashboard
  • Part of the third S60 generation introduced for 2019

When it comes to plug-in hybrids, there are two schools of thought. The first, and most logical, is to use the battery's extra power purely to enhance the vehicle's fuel efficiency and enable a modicum of pure electric propulsion. The second, and the more fun option, is to harness the battery power to boost the vehicle's performance yet return similar or even better fuel economy. The 2020 Volvo S60 T8 follows the second option with great enthusiasm and even throws in a little electric-only range — about 22 miles — as a bonus.

Not only is the T8 just as handsome as the standard S60, but it's a whole lot more powerful, too. The S60 T8 pumps out a combined 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque from its gasoline hybrid powertrain (a standard S60 offers up 250 hp, 258 lb-ft), and it's quick enough to get you from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds. And if that's not fast enough, there's a Polestar Engineered version with more power and an adjustable suspension.

While a few luxury SUVs have gone the plug-in hybrid route, there aren't many sedans that have done the same. In fact, at the time of this review, only the BMW 3 Series offers a plug-in hybrid variant and it doesn't produce anywhere near the power of the Volvo. To see if the S60 T8 is your kind of plug-in hybrid, check out our Expert Rating below.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
The Volvo S60 Recharge (formerly called the T8) is an ambitious luxury sedan. The ability to switch between quick acceleration and emissions-free luxury in ample comfort helps set it apart from rival sedans. But compromised storage space and a frustrating user interface ultimately hold it back from being truly great.
Acceleration is the big reason to get the Recharge. Our test car accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, which is a quick time for a small luxury sedan. Our enthusiasm is somewhat dampened by the lack of a thrilling noise to accompany the speed, but this plug-in is as gutsy as advertised. The power transition from electric to gasoline and back again is smooth and unobtrusive.

We are less enamored with the brakes. They provide little to no feedback, which can make it hard to consistently stop smoothly. Emergency braking performance in our testing was also lackluster. The one-pedal driving mode, which allows you to come to a stop solely using regenerative braking, is a nice convenience and neat trick to accrue more EV power, but we would trade that for better brake pedal feeling. At almost 4,500 pounds, this is a heavy sedan and you feel it from time to time.
Volvo is known for its supremely comfortable seats, and those inside the S60 don't disappoint. The front seats also offer lots of adjustability. We also like the S60's ride — the suspension smooths out bumps and cracks quickly and the S60 remains composed even over undulating surfaces. The cabin is also very quiet, especially when you're using partial or fully electric power.

The climate control system, however, could be easier to use. It requires diving into the confusing touchscreen interface, and it needs consistent readjusting to reach your desired temperature.
With a better user interface, the S60 might be our pick for the best small luxury sedan. Instead, the confusing mix of hard buttons and screen-scrolling leaves us wanting something more intuitive. It's a shame because an excellent range of adjustability in both front seats, coupled with stellar outward visibility, make the cabin a truly comfortable place.

The S60 has good-size door cutouts that enable passengers to get in and out without too much bending. But the S60 sits low, so taller folks might have to drop down some to get into their seats. Once inside, there is good space all around in the front. The back seat is roomy for passengers up to about 6 feet tall or so.
The integrated navigation system works well in tandem with voice controls that can recognize addresses and most points of interest. Unfortunately, the 3D map fades out at the top third of the screen, rendering its cool graphics useless. The good news: Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity is included. We highly recommend the optional Bowers & Wilkins stereo system and its outstanding concert-hall modes.

The S60's adaptive cruise control works well to keep a set distance from vehicles ahead. The operation of the lane keeping system, however, can be overly busy. Some of our drivers preferred to leave it off.
Due to the battery pack that runs down the center of the car, the S60 Recharge suffers in terms of interior storage compared with other S60 trims. The center console only has about an inch's worth of depth. That's enough to lay in a phone or some keys, but that's it. A couple cupholders and slim cubbies round out the storage options for the front row. On the upside, the wide trunk is just as big as the non-hybrid S60's. At 11.6 cubic feet, it's adequate for the class, and you can fold the seats down to accommodate longer items.

The roomy back row and highly adjustable front seats make for an accommodating area for bulky child's seats. The car is rather low to the ground, which may force you to crouch during installation. But the anchor points and tethers are easy to reach, and there is room to safely secure two seats in the back.
The S60 Recharge can go an EPA-estimated 22 miles of all-electric range. After that, it's estimated to get 30 mpg in combined city/highway driving. Both figures are comparable to those for BMW's 330e sedan, yet the S60 Recharge has a lot more power.

We drove our test car on our 115-mile evaluation route without any battery charge to start out. The regenerative braking regularly charged the battery and allowed us to use electricity instead of the gas engine, saving enough fuel to average 31.5 mpg on the route. That's a good indication that the EPA ratings should be achievable.
This luxury sedan looks and feels the part. The interior is full of authentic leather and metal, with an airtight cabin that creates a quiet ride. Considering its advanced powertrain, the S60 Recharge seems appropriately priced.

Volvo includes an industry-standard four years/50,000 miles for both the basic coverage and powertrain warranty, though several other brands offer more generous packages. The S60 also comes with 12 years/unlimited miles of rust coverage, four years/unlimited miles of roadside assistance, and three years/36,000 miles of free maintenance. All are among the best in class.
On the outside the S60 Recharge is a clean-looking and sophisticated luxury sedan. But the driving experience is a grab bag. It can be powerful and sporty to smooth and efficient — sometimes all at the same time. It's not fun in a traditional "bomb into every turn apex" kind of way, but certainly the S60 Recharge provides plenty of entertainment. The real joy comes from playing with the one-pedal regenerative braking system, storing up electric energy or using it all at once in an electric-powered blast.

Which S60 does Edmunds recommend?

Since the S60 T8 includes most of the items we already want, we think the sweet spot lies with the R-Design. This ensures you get the upgrade to the Harman Kardon audio system, navigation and advanced cabin air filtration. You also get the sport seats, which use a stylish combination of textile and leather upholstery, as well as power-folding rear headrests.

Volvo S60 models

The 2020 Volvo S60 is available in four trim levels: Momentum, Inscription, R-Design and Polestar Engineered. There are four powertrain choices, starting with the T5 that uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (250 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque). It's mated to an eight-speed automatic and front-wheel drive. The T6 has a turbocharged and supercharged version of that engine (316 hp, 295 lb-ft) that comes with all-wheel drive. The T8 hybrid takes the T6's engine and adds electric motors (combined output of 400 hp, 472 lb-ft). It, too, is all-wheel-drive only and estimated to deliver 21 miles of electric-only range. The T8 Polestar Engineered gets a higher-output version of the plug-in hybrid that produces 415 hp and 494 lb-ft of torque.

The Momentum trim can be had with either the T5 or T6 powertrain. Standard features include 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, selectable drive modes, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12.3-inch instrument panel display, simulated leather upholstery, a heated four-way power-adjustable driver's seat, driver-seat memory functions, split-folding rear seats with power-folding headrests, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

On the tech front, you also get a 9-inch vertically oriented touchscreen with Volvo's Sensus infotainment system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports, and a 10-speaker audio system with satellite radio and an auxiliary audio jack. Advanced safety features include forward collision warning, full-speed automatic emergency braking, run-off road mitigation, lane keeping assist, a road sign reader, a drowsy driver warning system and remote vehicle controls.

The sporty R-Design spices things up with unique exterior design elements, LED foglights, a sport steering wheel with shift paddles, four-zone automatic climate control, premium leather and fabric upholstery, and the 10-way power front seats.

The Inscription builds on the Momentum features by adding the LED foglights, wood interior trim, leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats with four-way lumbar adjustment, and passenger-seat memory functions. This trim is also eligible for the Luxury Seating package that adds premium leather upholstery and ventilated front seats with power-adjustable side bolsters and massage functions.

All trims are eligible for the Premium package that adds a hands-free trunklid, front and rear parking sensors, auto-dimming mirrors, keyless entry, a blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning system with automatic braking and steering assist, and an automated perpendicular and parallel parking system. Also available on those trims are a 14-speaker premium Harman Kardon audio system and the Multimedia package that includes a navigation system.

If you get the Premium and Multimedia packages, the Advanced package becomes available and adds adaptive headlights, automatic high beams, LED foglights, headlight washers, a head-up display, a 360-degree surround-view camera, and Volvo's Pilot Assist semi-automated drive system with adaptive cruise control.

The T8 Polestar Engineered model is almost fully loaded with the above features along with 19-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension with Öhlins dampers, Brembo brakes and an Orrefors crystal shift knob.

Some features are available on supporting trims as options. Other add-ons for most trims include an adaptive air suspension, a Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system, a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats.

    2020 Volvo S60 video

    MARK TAKAHASHI: When you think of luxury sedans that are a little sporty, you think of the BMW 3 Series, the Audi A4, Mercedes C class. It's hard to break into that German trio, but this might actually have a chance. This is the all new 2019 Volvo S60. Before I get too deep into the S60, do me a favor and hit subscribe below. We've got some great Edmond's content coming your way. The S60 is completely redesigned for 2019, and it is the last little puzzle piece in Volvo's Renaissance. It started four years ago with the XC90. And that design language and all of the quality that, quite frankly, was surprising to me carries over to this, the S60. It looks great. It has all the sharpness that the XC90 does. I love these headlights with the signature Thor's hammer. This is the R design, and it has some black accents up front. And I kind of like it. Prices start right around $37,000 for the base T5. That has a two liter, turbocharged, four cylinder, and puts out 250 horsepower. What we have here is that T6 R design. The T6 has a turbo charged and supercharged four cylinder that puts out 316 horsepower. At the very top of the range is the T8, which is a plug-in hybrid it has 415 horsepower. I drove it earlier today. And yes, it has a decent amount of power, but I wasn't a fan of the brakes. The regenerative braking, I could never come to a smooth stop, which is why I think the T6 and possibly the T5 are your best picks. Right off the line, it accelerates nicely. It's smooth. There's no drama. There's no real delay. It's a traditional automatic transmission. You hear a little bit turbo and supercharger whine, but it's actually kind of nice. When you get on the throttle harder, between shifts, you'll hear this little raspy puff, too, which makes it feel a little more sporty, or at least sound a little more sporty. You do have selectable drive modes, as most cars do today. They do have an option for an adaptive suspension. But I don't honestly think it's worth it. It's a really good balance of comfort and performance, as it is. I've been on some rougher roads earlier today, and it handled them just fine, and on some really tight twisty roads, which I'm on the way to hit right now. The T8 was actually really fun to drive. I'm not a very familiar stretch of Pacific Coast Highway right now. And the road noise is really well taken care of. You hear it, sure. You'll hear it pretty much in any car today, but it's not at all intrusive. The wind noise is pretty much absent as well. Visibility is great. I can see all the way around with no real obstructions. When I'm in the turns, I don't have to peek around the left roof pillar right here. And in typical Volvo style, when I don't have rear passengers, I hit a button, and those rear head rests fold flat, as they are right now. Because you can fold those headrests flat, you actually have a better view rearward than almost any other car. Normally, when I think of exciting, sporty little sedans, Volvo isn't at the top of my list. But they've gone and impressed me with this S60. It's actually a lot of fun to drive. It's very confident. This one has all wheel drive. So I do feel like there's an abundance of grip. Steering feels pretty good. And I like that the steering wheel is actually kind of small. Reminds me a little bit of a Lotus Elise, where it had this minuscule, comically small steering wheel, but it also gives you almost this extra directness. We're handling these mid-corner bumps just fine, soaking them up, but there's not a lot of body roll, and it certainly isn't discouraging me from driving harder. Yeah. It's kind of good. It has the mid-grade engine. It's got plenty of beans to get me through and out of turns, and it sounds pretty decent, too. Let's see which mode I'm in. A little roller dial down here. I can go to dynamic. This should sharpen up the response a bit. I'll be damned. It's good. Well, already, it's looking good to compete against BMW and Audi. That question I posed at the beginning, it's going to be a lot easier to answer now. It's encouraging to drive this car. It's almost asking for a little more power, power, power, power, power, power. And that pavement back there is super choppy. And I know that for a fact, because I go through on my motorcycle, and you have to be really careful. This wasn't even fazed by it. So their suspension tuning, spot on. But this R design doesn't really have a lot of performance parts. It's almost more about sporty appearance than anything else. It's not until you get to the Polestar, T8, I think, that comes with a different suspension with the Ohlins dampers and all that good stuff. That means even if you go with a base T5, you're going to have the same experience when it comes to handling. Obviously, not power. But in all fairness, and with past experience with that turbo only T5 engine, it's going to be really good with this S60, because it's in the XC40, which I also like. And this should be even better, a little smaller. It's not a crossover. It's a sedan. Whoo. This is a Volvo that wants to play. Who knew? Let's see how the brakes feel. It's a little soft. Heading into a turn here, getting on the brakes a little hard. Yeah, it's just a little spongy. And I don't have that much feedback to modulate it. But I am really just nitpicking now. When it comes to comfort, I really like the seats Volvo have been putting out. First seat redesign that came out was with the XC90, and they were designed by orthopedists. And man, after hours and hours of driving, I never felt fatigue. I actually felt pretty good getting out of the car. The same with this. I have put many, many hours on this car already, and there's no soreness. I feel really well supported. it just conforms to your body. This car is a joy to drive. If it hasn't become abundantly clear that I'm already a fan of Volvo's exterior design, I'm also a fan of their interior design. It's just as clean. It's just as classy. It's a nice horizontal motif going through the dash with this sharp little lip here, some really nice materials, and the dash is dominated by this vertical touch screen. It's been used in everything since the XC90, with mixed results. But they didn't make improvements for this year. It is apparently 50% quicker to respond, and it does actually work pretty quickly now. It's not quite as intuitive as some other touchscreen systems, but as long as you give it a little time, it becomes pretty intuitive after. It starts with these four tiles here initially. You just swipe one way or the other. Now you have all these choices as far as infotainment, and you get a lot of the systems as far his driver assistance and lane keep and camera systems. It all starts making sense the more you use it. As far as storage goes, well, you have this really nice long bin here with two cup holders and another cubby up there. It's not very deep. But for cup holders, it's just fine. You have another tiny little pocket here that would probably be good for a cell phone and a center bin, which is deep enough. There is a bigger iPhone in there right now, and doesn't seem to be having a problem fitting in their. Door pockets, they're about average if you ask me. It doesn't quite fit larger water bottles, but a medium-sized one will be just fine. One thing I really like about this cabin, too, is the airiness. Now, of course, I mentioned the visibility earlier, but you also have this panoramic sunroof, which is standard throughout the lineup. It really lets the light in, but if you don't want it, you just hit this little button here, and the shade slides forward, and does a good job of keeping the sun off your head. The backseats of the S60 are nicely accommodating. My hair is just barely brushing the headliner, and I'm 5 foot 10. So that means your average male adult will be able to fit back here just fine. There's a good kind of coved out area here for the passenger, and it gives you a little bit of lateral support, and that's something that's unusual in the class, actually in sedans in general. They're usually pretty flat when it comes to seatbacks. I'd be comfortable back here for a road trip, not a problem. Right down here we have a household power outlet, which is a nice touch. Doesn't seem to be USB port back here, but if you have that, well you can get one of those wall outlets with the USB on there. This particular car has quad zone automatic climate control, which means I can control the temperature for each outboard seat here. That's nice. And there are also heated seats back here. This is the R design, probably with a lot of options, as well. So it's expected. But the interface, it's really nice. It's really clean, just like everything else in the S60. While a lot of shoppers are gravitating towards crossovers and SUVs, the S60 shouldn't be overlooked, because it has a decent amount of cargo space. Look at that. You also get some nice little flip down handles for your shopping bags. Maybe not as clever as some of the storage solutions in the XC40, XC60, but for a sedan, it hits the right mark. The question I posed at the top of this video was does this have a chance of squeezing into that German trio of BMW, Audi, and Mercedes? Yes is the short answer. The long answer is absolutely yes. It drives great. It looks great. I mean, look at this, it is sharp and clean. The price is right. You have a choice of three engines. The interior is impeccable. There really isn't a lot to knock it for, and that is a really good sign for a review. If you're looking in this class, I highly recommend going to a Volvo dealer and checking out the S60.

    Volvo S60 vs. Audi A4

    The S60 and the A4 are excellent rivals since they're so evenly matched. Both offer impressive build quality and all sorts of luxury- and safety-oriented options. Both vehicles are spacious and comfortable and ultimately easy to drive on a daily basis. The Volvo S60 presents a wider variety of available powertrains, but the A4's turbocharged four-cylinder is no slouch either.

    Volvo S60 vs. Genesis G70

    If you're looking for a bit of a bargain in the luxury class, the Genesis G70 is an excellent place to start. Available with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a 3.3-liter V6, the G70 feels sporty and high-class at the same time. Unfortunately, many of the cabin materials are sourced from other Hyundais, so at times it doesn't feel as plush as some rivals (especially the high-end S60 trim levels).

    Volvo S60 vs. BMW 3 Series

    While it's no longer the class-dominating luxury-sedan standard that it once was, the BMW 3 Series is still a worthy competitor to the S60. It has a comfortable ride, but it still offers the sporty driving experience we've come to expect from BMW. And inside, the infotainment system is relatively easy to use even if it has fallen behind some class leaders.

    Should I lease or buy a 2020 Volvo S60?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
