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

Using relatively small, turbocharged engines enables the Volvo S60 to achieve a balance of performance with gas mileage. The front-wheel-drive base S60 T5 is the best of the lot, at 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway for a combined rating of 23 mpg.

The S60 T6 and R Design models both score 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway in EPA testing, for 21 mpg combined.

Despite the respectable figures, the S60 doesn't stand out amongst its luxury sedan competitors, which also use advanced technologies and engines to achieve reasonable gas mileage.

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.
