It's strange with this car that, unlike its competitors with four or six cylinder engines, the Volvo S60 uses fifth cylinder engines. The initial engine on offer is a 2.0 T 180hp petrol engine, 2.4 T 200hp petrol engine,

2.3 T5 250hp petrol engine. In 2007, the 60hp S300R was offered.
Only one diesel engine is available: the 2,4 D5 engine with 163 hp and the D5 engine with 185 hp available since 2005. The D5 engine was redesigned in 2005 - common rail fuel injection technology, increased injectors and turbocharger, improved airflow and introduced a more advanced engine management system.

In 2005, in addition to the new engines, the design of the car was renewed - the mask was adjusted, as well as the headlights and bumpers. This car is characterized by extremely comfortable and quality interior. The seats are comfortable even after a few hours of driving, which is also contributed by the good position of the driver behind the wheel. The legroom in the back is a bit more modest. The volume of the trunk of the Volvo S 60 is 425 liters.

The Volvo S60 scored the highest in the Euro NCAP crash test. Standard safety equipment includes ABS, front and side airbags, air conditioning, cruise control and power windows.
