The mid-size S60 sedan offers a new Blind Spot Information System for 2005 that can warn of other vehicles in close proximity that the driver not otherwise spot. Two side-mirror-mounted cameras keep an electric eye on the area alongside and to the offset rear of the car, and when another vehicle enters its range the system alerts the driver via a dashboard-mounted warning light. Also newly added is water repellent glass on the door mirrors and front side windows to help prevent rainwater from obstructing the driver's outward visibility. The S60 continues to come powered by a choice of turbocharged engines, including a 168-horsepower, 2.4-liter five-cylinder, a 208-horsepower 2.5-liter five-cylinder and a 2.3-liter that generates 247 horses in the sporty T5 edition. A high-performance version - the S60R - offers a speedy 300-hp, 2.5-liter in-line five-cylinder engine, along with a Servotronic power-steering system, Brembo brakes, and Haldex all-wheel drive. Both five-speed manual and automatic transmissions are available throughout the line, with four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and front-side airbags standard.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
