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 Volvo S60 models don't stand out among sporty compact sedans; and with the recent introduction of turbocharged four-cylinder engines from Mercedes-Benz and BMW, the S60 is now looking near the back of the pack with respect to fuel economy.

With some significant changes to the base five-cylinder engine in the 2013 Volvo S60 T5 models this year, we don't yet have EPA numbers; but last year's base S60 T5 with front-wheel drive was the best of the lot, at 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. All-wheel drive models typically come in a bit lower.

There's actually no penalty for the higher performance you get in the R-Design versus the T6. Both achieve 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway in EPA testing, for 21 mpg combined.



Even considering the S60's luxury and performance status, its mileage is lackluster.

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.
