Expert Quotes:

Thick, pebbled leather is everywhere, and the seats are comfortable and supportive.
Car and Driver

the rear seat offers substantial bolsters for side support
Kelley Blue Book

The suspension is stiff, not brutally so

there's no denying that the leathers, vinyls and plastics in this cabin are of solid quality

we typically desire a bit more lateral bolstering in sport sedan chairs, but otherwise the comfort, adjustability and ergonomics of the S60 remain first-rate

The S60 name makes this sedan sound like it's somewhere in the middle or toward the upper end of the range, but in truth it's barely mid-size, and actually closer to compact luxury models like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class or Acura TSX. That said, it makes good use of the space and has plenty of passenger room.

The S60 is missing the longer (or extendable) thigh supports that some other Volvo models have, but otherwise the driving and riding experience in front is excellent. The back seat looks tighter from the outside than it actually is when you get in, thanks to good contouring for adults, and outboard positions that are 'scooped in' somewhat. Even though over six feet tall can sit back there, with enough legroom, and possibly enough headroom.

Trunk space, as hinted by the tall rear deck, is abundant. Rear seatbacks fold forward and are 40/60-split, with loading ease quite impressive.

Inside, it's a European luxury-car experience. The S60 isn't perfectly quiet, but wind, tire, and road noise are well-controlled. Touring, Dynamic, and Four-C Active Chassis options provide a wide range of firmness, and the available Four-C Active Chassis suspension enables Comfort, Sport, and Advanced modes for increased driver control.


Considering the compact footprint and stylish roofline of the 2013 S60, it's remarkably comfortable and space-efficient.

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.
