Volvo extends S60 range with plug-in hybrid and new trim levels

Get In Touch

Volvo has extended its S60 range – the third generation of the firm’s premium mid-size saloon – to incorporate further powertrain choices and equipment grades, including an all­-wheel­-drive petrol­-electric hybrid and a trim level that focuses on luxury and craftsmanship.

Electrifying hybrid powertrain

The existing T5 turbocharged 250hp petrol unit has been joined by an all-wheel-drive T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain, combining a 303hp petrol engine with an 87hp electric motor for a total output of 390hp. Performance is suitably electrifying, with 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds.

The T8 Twin Engine’s 11.8kWh battery provides an electric-only range of up to 36 miles, with CO2 emissions from just 39g/km. Fuel economy (on the WLTP combined cycle) is up to 176.5mpg.

Like the T5, the T8 Twin Engine uses a Volvo Drive-E petrol engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Volvo S60 R-Design

Dynamic or new luxurious trim levels

The R-Design Edition launch trim has been replaced by R-Design Plus and is joined by the new Inscription Plus variant.

R-Design Plus is designed to provide a more focused driving experience, thanks to (on T5 versions) stiffer springs, faster-responding monotube dampers, thicker anti-roll bars and a 12mm lower ride height (petrol-electric hybrid R-Design Plus variants come with the standard suspension settings). Other R-Design Plus highlights include a head-up display, gearshift paddles, high­gloss black exterior trim elements, a choice of 18­, 19­ or 20-inch alloy wheels, Metal Mesh aluminium interior inlays and part-leather sports seats.

Inscription Plus trim is for those who appreciate their high-end luxuries. The exterior features chrome trim along with a different design of alloy wheels, projecting exclusivity and refined Scandinavian style. Inside, fine Nappa full-leather upholstery and beautifully crafted details such as the Driftwood décor inlays reward the senses. Inscription Plus versions also benefit from cooled seats, on top of the heated seats of other S60s.

Prices

The expanded S60 range is available to buy now, priced from £37,935 on the road for the T5 R-Design Plus, with the T8 Twin Engine R-Design Plus being available for £49,805 on the road.
