Expert Quotes:

18/26 mpg city/highway

fuel economy (18 mpg city/26 mpg highway) is just a hair below the rear-drive 335i.
Kelley Blue Book

Fuel economy is average compared with other six-cylinder models in this class

figures that are on the money with other six-cylinder all-wheel drive offerings in the segment

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.

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.
