Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

The Volvo S60 is a five-seat luxury sedan that goes toe-to-toe with the BMW 3 Series, Acura TL and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The 2014 S60's mild refresh includes smoother front styling and new interior features. The S60 is available in front-or all-wheel drive with turbocharged five- and six-cylinder engines.  

New for 2014
Volvo smoothens the S60's front styling for 2014 while the inside has a new dashboard and upholstery options plus available sports seats. Other changes to the exterior include new wheel designs and LED accents on the taillights.

ExteriorIt may take a second glance to notice what's changed, but the S60's already sleek appearance is smoother with the relocation of the daytime running lamps, new headlight design and hidden windshield washer nozzles.  The grille is also wider for 2014 and uses less chrome surround. Exterior features include:

  • Integrated tailpipes
  • New wheel designs
  • Standard 17-inch wheels
  • Available 18- and 19-inch wheels
  • Available heated windshield

InteriorThe S60 seats five occupants and gains an available configurable digital gauge cluster for 2014 that replaces a standard tachometer and speedometer. It's standard on T6 trim levels and is optional on T5 trim levels. Available display choices include a traditional appearance, eco theme with eco meter and green background as well as a performance theme with red background.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
