2011 Volvo S60 Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The S60's EPA fuel economy ratings of 18 mpg city, 26 highway are on par for the class, though if fuel-efficiency is a priority they're not particularly impressive if you weigh them against any number of slightly larger V-6-powered luxury sedans.

However, Volvo vehicles have a reputation for lasting a long time, and the brand has shown strong corporate responsibility and a concern for the environment long before it was a marketing tool, so that could be a tie-breaker for some shoppers. The automaker claims to design its vehicles for 85 percent recyclability and 95 percent recoverability.

The 2011 Volvo S60 is quite fuel-efficient for a 300-hp sport sedan, but against other luxury vehicles its size it's unremarkable.
