About Volvo S60

Volvo S60 appeared in 2001 as a compact executive sedan, replacing the S70. Braking the tradition of boxy design, Volvo was known for in the 1980s and 90s, the design of Volvo S60 (based on the styling of the S80) was developed by a team lead by Peter Horbury. A front drive near-luxury sedan appeared with a sportier profile due to the combination of coupe and sedan look. It shared Volvo's P2 platform with such Volvo models: the S80, the V70, the XC70, and the XC90. An outstanding touring car, a flexible family car, the S60 went on sale, offering three models. They featured inline five-cylinder engines. The base sedan came with a 2,4-liter engine, which produced 168 hp. The turbocharged version went into the 2,4T and developed 197 hp. The T5 came with a turbocharged 2,3-liter engine, delivering 247 hp. Five-speed manual gearbox or optional five-speed automatic transmission was offered for base sedans and the T5s, but the 2,4T was automatic only.

The model is slightly larger than the replaced S70 with increases in size appearing most notably in the wheelbase (106,8 inches), the height (56,4 inches), and the width (71,4 inches). Volvo S60 is 6 inches shorter overall though (180,4 inches). More interior space and 17-inch wheels (for the T5 and the 2,4T) were the upgrades. Two traction-control/antiskid systems were available. The T5 offered Stability Traction Control (STC), while it was optional on others. A more sophisticated Dynamic STC was also available for the T5 and 2.4T. It added selective braking at all four wheels improving cornering stability in active driving. The models were supplied with a sport suspension (for the T5), a satellite-linked navigation system with pop-up dashboard screen, and Volvo's On-Call Plus assistance system. A refreshed 2005 version of the S60 got the interior with new seats, trim, and an updated center console. The exterior was also updated with the folowing new auto parts: headlamps, body-colored side moldings, and bumpers. With more powerful T5 engine (+10hp) the near-luxury sedan was slightly longer and wider.

Second-generation version of Volvo S60 was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 17, 2010, appearing as a 2011 model in North America. Sharing the same platform (Volvo Y20 platform) with the XC60, the new model features longer wheelbase (109,3 inches). It is actually wider (73,4 inches), taller (58,4 inches), and longer overall (182,2 inches). The sedan presents a completely new design with new large Volvo iron symbol, parallel to the grille day running lamps, and larger spaced letters in the brand name on rear. As for new safety feature, Pedestrian Detection helps to apply brakes in case the driver does not react in time if a pedestrian is detected in front of the car.

The Volvo S60 may be defined as a luxury car, but while others in its class want to catch your attention with a ton of performance and torque you'll never need, the S60 instead concentrates on the stuff you do require, like unabashed comfort. The S60 is the type of ride drivers love because it allows you to just stretch your feet out and lounge while navigating the landscape. Flush with soothing interior amenities, the S60 is elegance in motion without ever leaving its confines. But the exterior design is classical and chic; leaving no doubt that this model is as fashionable as it is accommodating.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.

2002 Volvo S60 | Posted by Nanci | (Montgomery Village, MD)

The customized seat covers that you made fit the seats in my car perfectly. I wish that that were the end of the story. I have been driving around for weeks with the seat cover hanging off and dragging on the car floor. The straps that attach the cover to the seat are not adequate for the job and have stretched off and need to be reinforced. A car upholstery store will make new and stronger straps for $75. Its inconvenient to leave my car with them for an entire day so they can make the repair. Also the original seat had a pocket in the front of the seat where the back of my knees would meet the seat. This wasn't included in the customized covers.
