Specs at a Glance


Volvo’s sedans deliver a driving experience that drivers will immediately love by blending refined luxury and exciting performance. Both the 2018 Volvo S60 and Volvo S90 are excellent choices for buyers wanting to experience Volvo quality and craftsmanship.

Both the 2018 S60 and the S90 come equipped with excellent powertrain options. The S60 offers a choice between two different 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. The base engine, a turbocharged model, delivers 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque to the road via a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. The upgraded engine adds a supercharger and turbocharger, upping the power to a sporty 302 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It uses the same excellent eight-speed automatic transmission for shifting gears. The S90 offers the same engine models as its smaller cousin the S60, but befitting its larger size, Volvo tuned each of its available power plants to deliver slightly more performance. The S90 also offers a third engine option, a plug-in hybrid model that gives drivers both the amazing range and fuel economy of a hybrid with an astonishing 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.

The S60 and S90 both have solid brakes and responsive handling, though the smaller S60 is a bit more nimble around tight corners. Both vehicles come standard with front-wheel drive transmissions, and both have available all-wheel drive options. The S60 also narrowly edges out the S90 in fuel economy, 36 mpg to 35 mpg highway/ 26 mpg to 25 mpg city, when comparing the non-hybrid models. The S90 wins out, however when it comes to raw power and straight-line speed.


The 2018 Volvo S60 is the vehicle maker’s sports sedan, and its styling lives up to that name. Its exterior styling blends aggression with luxury, with sleek lines and classy features from tip to tail. Its four doors fit seamlessly to it low, sporty frame, and great additional feature like 18-inch wheels and a sunroof improve the look even further. Inside, Volvo’s well-earned reputation for luxury is on full display, with a roomy, attractive, and comfortable cabin that seats four adults easily.


The Volvo S60 comes standard with a host of great features like LED running lights, leather seats, and automatic climate control. It also comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen in the center console that uses Volvo’s Sensus smartphone app integration, is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capable, and serves as the controls for an eight-speaker sound system. The S60 has three great available trim packages, each of which adds tons of great features. The Climate package includes things to help with cold conditions, such as a heated windshield, heated seats, and active cabin air filter. The Sports package adds a sport-tuned suspension and 19-inch alloy wheels, and the Vision package offers great high-tech safety features like blind-spot monitoring and front and rear parking sensors.

The luxury S90 sedan comes with even greater standard features than the S60, like LED headlights, a leather and wood trim interior, 10-way power adjustable seats, and much more. An available T6 inscription package adds even more luxury and performance with features including leather covering of the dash and door panels, upgraded leather upholstery and wood trim, and four-zone climate control. Both the S60 and S90 also feature Volvo’s award-winning suite of great safety features.
