2022 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered: How’s the AWD

2022 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered: How’s the AWD


The S60 is Volvo’s stylish premium compact sedan. It’s positioned below the larger S90 sedan. For 2022, Volvo added a mild hybrid system to the base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The new designation for the engine is B5 (it was formally T5). The supercharged and turbocharged T6 engine is no longer available, but the top plug-in hybrid Recharge T8 engine is still an option.

The range-topping Polestar Engineered model is only available with the Recharge T8 powertrain. It’s the S60’s performance model that comes equipped with Öhlins suspension, forged wheels and Brembo brakes.

The Swedish sedan might not sell as well as some of its competition — which includes the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class — but the S60 still has a lot to offer in terms of advanced driver aids and style.

In addition, the S60 provides a comfortable ride thanks to its superb seat comfort, handles like a true sport sedan, and has excellent build quality. For detailed information on the Volvo S60, check out our Expert Rating from our test team.
