Volvo expands the S60 lineup for 2012 with the new S60 T5. the front-drive T5 receives a new 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine, plus a unique list of standard equipment.
Emotionally charged styling sets the tone for the promise of a great drive. The S60's profile radiates the look of a four-door coupe with a twist. The slim roofline is accompanied by a distinctive contour on the shoulders of the lower body, creating a "double wave" that stretches from the headlights to the taillights.
The new 2012 Volvo S60 T5, propelled by its 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine, puts out 250 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque. Coupled with its lighter weight as a front-drive model, the T5 is capable of 0-60 mph acceleration in 6.8 seconds.
The engine is matched with a six-speed "Geartronic" transmission that offers completely automatic shifts or allows the driver to shift manually for an added sense of control.
Driving dynamics have been fine-tuned on the S60 with a choice of three unique designs. The Dynamic Chassis, optional on the T5, places the focus on optimizing control and agility. The T5 comes with a Touring Chassis, placing the greatest emphasis on ride comfort.
Volvo's FOUR-C (Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept) active chassis employs sensors that continuously monitor the car's behavior and adjust the dampers in fractions of a second to suit the current driving situation. The driver can select from three different settings: Comfort, Sport and Advanced.
A Driver Control Interface manages information from the audio unit, navigation system (if equipped) and other functions, displaying them onto a 7-inch high-definition color monitor in the upper part of the center console.
