2015 Volvo S60 Review & Comparison For Phoenix Arizona Shoppers

Volvo Dealer Reviews the 2015 S60

The new S60 is sleek, streamlined and styled for road-hugging handling and smooth riding comfort. Those shopping for a 2015 Volvo S60 in Phoenix will find exciting new engine choices for front-wheel drive models which offer considerable boosts in both power and fuel efficiency. That's welcome news for drivers in the Valley of the Sun, where urban sprawl adds to fuel consumption. Our 2015 Volvo S60 review will examine these new engines and look at available features, safety systems and competitive car comparisons.


Let's look at the base model engine first. The T5 Drive- E receives the new 240-horsepower turbocharged engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. To hone efficiency even further, Volvo has added an auto start/stop feature which automatically stops and restarts the engine when the car is halted. If you're not on board with this feature, consider the wasted fuel burned during what may be a third of your daily Phoenix commute time spent at a stand-still!


If you desire economy but crave power, the T6 Drive-E offers a new 302-horsepower turbocharged and supercharged engine. The supercharger provides power while the turbocharger is spooling up. As Forbes noted in their Volvo S60 review, "twin-charger setup in Volvo's new T6 Drive-E engine is a four-cylinder engine that feels like a high-performance six-cylinder. It really works too, while providing 26 percent better fuel economy." Drive-E technology is a practical marriage of power and economic efficiency.


If your travels to higher elevations require all-wheel drive, check out the S60 T5 and T6 models, equipped with 250-horsepower turbocharged five-cylinder and 325-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engines respectively, each paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. These larger engines continue to deliver worthy fuel economy for their class. As you peruse the sample Volvo S60s for sale in Phoenix below, you'll see each individual model's EPA-estimated ratings.


Volvo's reputation for safety carries on with the new S60. Besides traditional safety features found in all new Volvo models, the S60's technology package offers advanced systems like lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning systems. A long list of standard amenities is expected in a luxury sedan and you won't be disappointed with the S60's offerings of power accessories and advanced connectivity.
