What's Updated in the 2017 Volvo S60?

Compared to the previous model year, the 2017 Volvo S60 has a much more simplified engine lineup with only two engines available, a 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder or a 302-horsepower version that is both turbocharged and supercharged. This provides enough choices for the average driver but allows Volvo to keep costs down by streamlining production so they can pass the savings onto the driver. In addition to the adjustment to the engine lineup, the 2017 S60 has a new entry-level trim known as the Dynamic. This trim has leather sport seats, xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with headlight washers, R-Design styling cues, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a moonroof. It also features LED daytime running lights, heated side mirrors, cruise control, automatic climate control, and City Safety for collision avoidance.

Some changes to the S60 for the 2017 model year also apply to the other Volvo 60 series. These include new 18-inch wheels and redesigned wheels on the R-Design trim. There are also three new exterior colors, including Luminous Sand, Mussel Blue, and Bursting Blue.
