When it comes to features the Swedes don't skimp. The S60 has Bluetooth hands-free wireless and audio streaming, rain sensing windshield wipers, headlight washers, torque vectoring, a 7-inch color LCD screen, HD radio, electronic climate control, and Volvo's innovative City Safety. In addition to the standard equipment, Volvo has created new trim levels for 2013 which contain previous optional equipment such as push-button start, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, and front and rear park assist.
A Swedish value
Volvo undercuts the competition with its pricing on the S60, which starts at $32,645 for a base T5 model. The trim levels are reasonably priced, with each increasing the price approximately $2,000. A fully loaded T6 R-Design will ring in close to $55,000.
Volvo's in a unique position, as it has always been a reference point when it comes to safety. With the current-generation S60, Volvo has upped the safety technology while adding a dose of aggressive styling and luxury.
At the end of the day, the Volvo costs less than the competition, offers more interior space, and is distinctly Swedish. For more information be sure to read our full review of the 2013 Volvo S60 here.
