2012 Volvo S60 Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

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.

The 2012 Volvo S60 is rather fuel efficient given its luxury and performance status, but it doesn't stand out from the crowd.

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.
