Review continues below


For 2006, the mid-size S60 sedan is now powered in the base model by a 208-horsepower, turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine; an alternately available 2.3-liter, turbocharged five-cylinder generates 247 horses in the sporty T5 edition. Both front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available with five-speed manual and five-speed automatic transmissions. A high-performance edition - the S60R - offers a speedy 300-horsepower, 2.5-liter in-line-five-cylinder engine, mated to a just-added six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission that affords manual gear changes. The S60R also offers a Servotronic power-steering system, suspension upgrades, beefier Brembo brakes, and a newly upgraded Haldex "Instant Traction" all-wheel drive system. For 2006, the AWD and T5 versions get redesigned alloy wheels. Standard equipment includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, and front-side airbags. A "Four-C" chassis is available on the T5 that allows the driver to switch from "comfort" to "sport" ride and handling settings.
