(2002 model shown)




For 2006, the mid-size S60 sedan is now powered in the base model by a 208-horsepower, turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine; an alternately available 2.3-liter, turbocharged five-cylinder generates 247 horses in the sporty T5 edition. Both front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available with five-speed manual and five-speed automatic transmissions. A high-performance edition - the S60R - offers a speedy 300-horsepower, 2.5-liter in-line-five-cylinder engine, mated to a just-added six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission that affords manual gear changes. The S60R also offers a Servotronic power-steering system, suspension upgrades, beefier Brembo brakes, and a newly upgraded Haldex "Instant Traction" all-wheel drive system. For 2006, the AWD and T5 versions get redesigned alloy wheels. Standard equipment includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, and front-side airbags. A "Four-C" chassis is available on the T5 that allows the driver to switch from "comfort" to "sport" ride and handling settings.

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.
