Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview After taking a year off, Volvo's S60 luxury sedan returns in redesigned form for 2011. Along with all-new exterior and interior styling, the S60 features a new 300-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder and all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Cadillac CTS, Infiniti G37x and Acura TL.
Exterior The redesigned S60 is the latest Volvo to distance the brand from its boxy designs of old. Overall, the S60's compact stance, flowing lines and low roofline make for a very stylish luxury car. Eighteen-inch alloy wheels are standard, but smaller 17-inch rims are available. A Premium Package includes a power moonroof and adaptive xenon headlights.
Interior The S60 has room for five on front bucket seats and a 60/40-split folding backseat. The seats can be finished in a rich brown leather — Beechwood Brown — that you don't see every day. The front passenger seat also folds flat to make it easier to carry long items. The S60 also features Volvo's floating center control panel that can be finished in aluminum or wood.
Standard features include automatic climate control, cruise control, heated side mirrors, Bluetooth cell phone connectivity and a CD stereo with auxiliary and USB ports. Available features include rain-sensing windshield wipers, a navigation system and a premium audio system with a DVD player.
Under the Hood At launch, the S60 will be powered by a 300-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder, but more engines could be offered in the future. This engine teams with a six-speed automatic transmission and drives all four wheels through the S60's all-wheel-drive system. Volvo's Four-C adaptive suspension is optional.
Safety Standard safety features include antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system and active front head restraints. City Safety, Volvo's system designed to lessen the severity or prevent altogether a rear-end collision with another vehicle, is also standard.
Along the same lines as City Safety is the optional Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake, which can prevent collisions where the difference in speed is 22 mph or less — including ones where a pedestrian is involved. Additional options include Lane Departure Warning, a blind-spot monitoring system, and front and rear parking sensors.
