The completely redesigned Volvo S60 features an interior and exterior that ventures in the opposite direction of traditional Volvo models of the past. This five-seater luxury sedan features a new 3.0-L turbo-charged 6-cylinder engine with all wheel drive, producing 300 hp and 325 lb-ft torque at 5,600 rpm.
With ratings including good, acceptable, marginal, or poor, the IIHS gave the S60 a good rating for occupant protection in at least four of five evaluations, with no less than acceptable in the fifth test.

Items like unibody high-strength steel passenger cage, inflatable curtain in side-impact head protection system, and driver and front passenger dual stage supplemental restraint systems (airbags) helped contribute to winning the safety award.
