Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

by Brian Wong -

The 2019 Volvo S60 is a completely redesigned luxury sedan, but it feels oddly familiar. From the Thor's hammer headlight design to the tablet-style touchscreen and stylish interior, the 2019 S60 is more of a continuation for Volvo than an evolution.

Volvo's platform, its Scalable Project Architecture, sits underneath most of its cars and SUVs. Each vehicle shares the same base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the same Sensus Connect multimedia system and the same vertically oriented 9-inch touchscreen.

This means that when I met the redesigned S60, it was less like meeting a stranger and more like catching up with an old friend. Volvo has settled on a formula that feels like a winner to me, and the S60 is no exception. I tested two versions of the S60 around Santa Monica, Calif.: a T6 AWD R-Design with all the options boxes checked and the T8 Polestar Engineered.

Available Trims and Powertrains

The S60, like other Volvos, offers Momentum, Inscription and R-Design trim levels. The front-wheel-drive T5 and all-wheel-drive T6 models are offered across all three trims, while the plug-in hybrid T8 is only offered in Inscription or R-Design guise. The T5 features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 250 horsepower and 258 pounds-feet o... Read More

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.
