With a sleek design that can cut through Cleveland traffic and thrilling performance perfect for the open road, the 2018 Volvo S60 is a great pick for anyone who wants a fun-to-drive experience in an elegant package. 

To break down exactly what this sedan has to offer drivers in the Lakewood and Elyria areas, Montrose Volvo of Cleveland put together this 2018 Volvo S60 car review.

2018 Volvo S60 Powertrain

The S60 has two engine options, with each offering a formidable power kick. The standard engine is a 2.0L turbocharged engine, producing 240 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

If you need more power, go for the available 2.0L Turbo and Supercharged engine, which generates 302 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. With an upgrade to the limited Polestar trim, you'll be treated to 362 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque.

As for handling, this model comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive with instant traction is an option in all trims. Combine that with an 8-speed automatic transmission and Corner Traction Control through Torque Vectoring, and you can feel confident taking the scenic route, no matter how winding the road.

Safety Technology

You'll feel comfortable knowing that the Volvo S60 includes several available safety technology features that act as a second set of eyes. Of course, there's no substitute for attentive driving, but these come pretty close.

The available Blind Spot Information System (BLIS™) and Cross Traffic Alert keeps an eye on your side and rear blind spots so you always know when it's clear to merge on the highway or back out of a tight spot. 

When you're driving in the city, the available Pedestrian Detection system will put you at ease by watching out for pedestrians or bikers and hitting the brakes if it senses an imminent collision. When you're out on the highway, available Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts your cruising sped to maintain a safe following distance from the person in front of you.

All the while, the Road Sign Information system keeps you updated on current speed limit and advisory signs by displaying them on your touchscreen.

Volvo S60 Interior Comforts and Convenience

When you slide into the cockpit of the 2018 S60, you'll be treated by an ergonomic seat, designed to prevent fatigue. Wrapped in leather and supportive from top-to-bottom, you'll truly feel like you're sitting in the lap of luxury.

You'll also feel like you have a personal assistant, with voice-activated Sensus Navigation and Sensus Connect. These systems allow you to set travel destinations, find and pay for parking, find stops along the way, and access your favorite smartphone apps, all through voice commands.

This way you can stay connected and informed without taking your hands off the wheel. The Wi-Fi® hotspot means not having to cut into your data limits while utilizing apps like Pandora® and maps.
