Distinctive appearance inside and out; fabulous seats; performance (T5 and R); safety.
Volvo's 2007 S60 comes in three different models: the base 2.5T, sportier T5, and high-performance S60 R. 2.5T models come with a 208-horsepower, 2.5L low-pressure-turbocharged five-cylinder engine, while the T5 steps up to a 257-horsepower, 2.4L high-pressure-turbo five-cylinder. The top-performance S60 R gets a 300-horsepower, 2.5L turbo five. The 2.5T models can be equipped with an Instant Traction all-wheel drive system that delivers up to 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels as needed.
The 2.5T comes only with a five-speed automatic transmission, but the T5 model can be specified with either a six-speed manual or the automatic with Geartronic manual selection mode. The R comes only with a six-speed manual transmission.
As it's a Volvo, the S60 comes with a long list of safety features including the Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC) system, side impact air bags, inflatable curtain side-curtain air bags, and a whiplash protection system.
At the top of the range is the high-performance S60 R, which also includes version of Volvo's all-wheel drive system tuned for rapid driving, along with a "Four-C" adaptive suspension system, bi-xenon headlamps, and more powerful Brembo brakes. Inside, the S60 R gets blue-tinted gauge faces, a 300-watt surround sound system, and special aluminum and leather trim.
Most options have been streamlined into packages for 2007. On 2.5T and T5 models, a Premium Package adds a power sunroof, leather upholstery, and real wood inlays (2.5T), while a Convenience Package includes a garage door opener, rear park assist, and a compass. A Sport Package available on the 2.5T brings Volvo's highly respected sport seats, the Geartronic automatic transmission, upgraded "Tuscana" 17-inch alloy wheels, and a surround sound system with six-disc changer. A Climate Package includes heated front seats, rainsensor wipers, and a headlight wiper/washer system.
Optional on all models is a new active bi-xenon headlamp system that processes and optimizes the beam pattern and can angle the beam up to 15 degrees in either direction. Flashier 18-inch "Eudora" alloy wheels add to the T5's look, and the Four-C system is also available on the T5. A DVD-based navigation system is available on all models
The Volvo S60 gets a number of minor changes to both its appearance and equipment list for 2007. On the outside, the S60 gets a new grille and front bumper, and the available front spoiler has been redesigned for a sleeker look. A rear wing spoiler is now optional, and lower-body cladding has been body-color coordinated. Side mirrors have been redesigned with integrated turn signals. Inside, the T5 model gets a new watch-dial-inspired gauge cluster such as that used in the S60 R, and the upholstery has been revamped.
The options list has been revised and simplified into packages. A surround sound system with six-disc changer is now included in the Sport Package, and active bi-xenon headlamps are now a standalone option. A new color, Passion Red, replaces Ruby Red in the lineup, while Solid Black is deleted. Puddle lights are also no longer offered.
The S60's suspension has been retuned, with a firmer overall setting for improved handling. All models are now equipped with the dynamic stability traction control (DSTC) system.
The mid-size 2007 Volvo S60 sedans have more of a performance edge than Volvo has typically had in its mainstream sedans; each of the S60 models have turbocharged powertrains, and the suspension has been retuned this year for an even sportier handling feel. Of course, safety remains one of the S60's main selling points. Meanwhile, the S60 R still ranks as one of the best gentleman's sport sedans, bringing surprisingly good performance along with good long-distance ride comfort.
