Frequently Asked Questions: The Volvo S60 Sedan

Red Bank and Rumson area drivers love the Volvo S60 sedan for three main reasons: its efficiency, its design, and its luxurious and high performing feel.

If you'd like to see what the S60 is all about, read up on some popular FAQs here and then stop by Red Bank Volvo for a visit:

Can the Volvo S60 Tow?

Yes! Despite its compact body and size, the Volvo S60 can actually tow north of 3,300 pounds--which is certainly enough for most boats and open trailers.

How Fast Can the Volvo S60 Go?

A T5 direct-injected turbocharged engine comes standard in the Volvo S60. It allows for up to 250 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque and has an 8-speed geartronic automatic transmission that makes each ride smoother and more enjoyable.

Drivers can also look forward to 0-60 miles per hour acceleration in under 5 seconds and a top speed of over 150 miles per hour.

Does the Volvo S60 Need Special Gas?

Since the Volvo S60 runs a T5 engine (most configurations), you do not need premium gas to fill it. 87 octane unleaded (regular) should work just find--and 91 is recommended every couple of months to keep things in tip top shape. Volvo also recommends keeping fuel ethanol levels below 10% and not using methanol as it could cause costly damages.

What Tech is in the Volvo S60?

Depending on the exact trim level of your S60, you could look forward to a 9-inch dashboard color touchscreen display and a 12.3-inch digital driver display for speed information, navigation, and more.

The center display is also compatible with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the included Harman Kardon speakers or available Bowers & Wilkins for an unparalleled driving experience.
