Hot on the heels of the S60’s unveiling, Volvo has confirmed the model will be priced from $35,800 in the United States.
The entry-level S60 T5 FWD Momentum features LED headlights, a panoramic moonroof and 18-inch alloy wheels. The model also comes equipped with a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and power front seats with a memory function. Other highlights include aluminum interior trim and a Sensus Connect infotainment system.
Moving up to the S60 T5 FWD R-Design costs $41,900 but it adds sportier styling details including gloss black accents on the grille, mirrors and window trim. The variant also has nappa leather sport seats, a unique shifter and a perforated leather steering wheel with paddle shifters.
The S60 T5 FWD Inscription costs $42,900 and it features bright chrome trim on the grille and window surrounds. Bigger changes occur in the cabin as drivers will find driftwood trim, a four-zone automatic climate control system and power front seats with lumbar support as well as power extensions.
Motivation is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission enables the model to have an EPA-estimated fuel economy 24 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.
Buyers wanting all-wheel drive and more power can opt for the S60 T6 AWD. It starts at $40,300 in Momentum trim, $45,400 in R-Design guise and $47,400 in the luxury-oriented Inscription spec.
While the model costs an additional $4,500 it rewards buyers with a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 316 hp (235 kW / 320 PS) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) of torque. It also has the added benefit of a standard all-wheel drive system.
Those seeking the ultimate in performance will need to order the S60 T8 Twin Engine Plug-In Hybrid eAWD. The model is only available in R-Design and Inscription trims which cost $54,400 and $55,400, respectively.
Power comes from a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as well as a rear electric motor. This setup enables the sedan to produce a combined output of 400 hp (298 kW / 405 PS) and 472 lb-ft (639 Nm) of torque.
Prices exclude a $995 destination charge and Volvo has already launched a configurator on its American website.
Subscription starts at $775 a month
The S60 will also be available with a subscription that promises to “make having a car as easy as having a cell phone.” That seems doubtful as Care by Volvo has been an unmitigated disaster in the United States.
Customers who are unafraid of potential problems can get a S60 T6 AWD Momentum for $775 per month. The model comes nicely equipped with linear lime wood trim as well as the premium and multimedia packages.
Buyers looking for something sportier can opt for the S60 T6 AWD R-Design which costs $850 per month. The S60 T8 eAWD Polestar Engineered will also be available through the subscription service but pricing hasn’t been released.
Each subscription includes insurance, factory scheduled maintenance, wear-and-tear replacements and a 15,000 mile (24,140 km) driving allowance every year. The subscription lasts 24 months but customers will have the option of changing vehicles and starting a new subscription after just 12 months.
Customers can order and subscribe to the S60 starting today, while the S60 T8 Polestar Engineered subscription will become available on June 28th. Customers who purchase or lease their cars can expect deliveries to occur in the fourth quarter of 2018.
