According to Volvo's design philosophy, making a car easy to understand and use is just as important as styling its surface. If the product is not functional, it can't be beautiful. Building upon that axiom, the S60 gains more standard equipment for 2008 while its roster of available option packages has been streamlined for simplicity.

The S60 T5 is now fitted with standard leather sport seating, power glass sunroof, compass in the rearview mirror, Satellite Radio prep, 5-speed 'Geartronic' transmission and 17-inch silver bright diamond cut 'Cassiopeia' wheels. All S60 variants gain standard auxiliary input and MP3 capability plus standard WMA CD readability.

A higher, more premium level of packaged equipment is offered. For example, on the S60 2.5T and 2.5T AWD, the new Advanced Package includes popular features such as a Premium sound system with in-dash 6-disc CD player, rear park assist, aluminum inlays and Volvo's Interior Air Quality System (IAQS).

Selecting the Advanced Package for the T5 gains Active Bi-Xenon headlamps that employ a mini-processor to gather data and optimize the beam pattern. The headlamp beams can be turned up to 15 degrees in either direction. A rear spoiler and brushed aluminum door handles and trunk moldings are also included. New to the Volvo lineup, a luxurious Imola two-tone leather interior can be specified for the T5 with the Advanced Package at no additional charge.


Last year, the S60 received a new grille, front bumper, redesigned front spoiler for better aerodynamics and a more aggressive appearance plus new outside mirrors with integrated turn signals. For added convenience, these automatically flash three times with light pressure on the turn signal stalk.

The S60's sporty driving character was also enhanced at that time. The standard chassis received firmer front and rear shock absorbers and springs with increased torsional rigidity by about 25 percent. Anti-rolls bars were made sturdier and supported by solid bushings. These changes work together to promote a harmonious balance between reassuring road manners and supple ride comfort.

In the Volvo tradition, the S60 benefits from a comprehensive array of safety features. All models are equipped with Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC) and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The list continues with standard Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) with side airbags and Inflatable Curtain (IC), Whiplash Protection Seating System (WHIPS), seat belts with pyrotechnic pretensioners in all seating positions, dual-stage front airbags (SRS), Volvo's safety cage construction and the ISO-FIX attachment for rearward-facing child safety seats.

All-Wheel Drive with Instant TractionTM is standard on the S60 2.5T AWD. It mates with the turbocharged engine for positive, instantaneous torque and optimum launch performance. The computer controlled Haldex all-wheel-drive system instantly delivers up to 50 percent more torque to the rear axle only when needed, such as during takeoff.


Volvo has been a pioneer and leader in the turbocharging of family cars for more than a quarter of a century. Thus, all S60 models are turbocharged. Three versions of the versatile S60 sport sedan are offered for 2008: the S60 2.5T, S60 2.5T AWD and S60 T5. The limited-production run of the high-performance S60 R ended with the conclusion of the 2007 model year.
