Volvo S60 Car Pictures

Share















Volvo S60 car photos, pictures, images and wallpaper. The S60 car marked a clean break for Volvo from the boxy design that many stereotyped the brand with in 1980s and 90s. Its design by Peter Horbury built upon the styling of the S80 and was the most marked departure from traditional Volvo styling since Horbury joined the firm in 1992. Accordingly, Volvo marketed the car as heralding a “Revolvolution.” It was built upon Volvo’s P2 platform, which was shared with three other Volvo models: the S80, the V70 and the XC90. First introduced in 2003, Volvo's S60 R boasted AWD (Haldex) mated to a 300 hp / 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) engine. 2004-2005 models came with a 6-speed manual transmission, as well as a 5-speed automatic which allowed only 258 ft-lb. torque. 2006-2007 models were available with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The 2006-2007 Automatic Transmission allowed for the full torque of 295lbs. (however, this torque was still limited to 258 ft-lbs.
