The Volvo S60 Is a Safe, Sleek Luxury Sedan

Over the past several years, Volvo has moved away from its traditional design to a curvy, sleek look. Never is it more on display than with the new 2013 Volvo S60, the company's five-seat luxury sedan. The flowing, low-to-the-ground design of the S60 is reminiscent of classic sports cars, while the endless list of safety features makes the sedan both reliable and family-friendly. Rain-triggered windshield wipers and self-wiping headlights come standard this year, in what proves to be the most sophisticated and luxurious S60 to date.

Also new this year, buyers will choose between the Premiere, Premiere Plus, and Platinum editions, with perks added to each. The Premiere features a moon roof, the Premiere Plus boasts parking sensors, and the Platinum adds a high-end stereo, navigation system, and more. Other optional features include a compass, high-intensity headlights, and a backup camera. The S60 also is chock-full of standard perks, such as climate control, Bluetooth capabilities, and satellite radio.

While the Volvo sedan prides itself on features, safety, and user-friendliness, it doesn't shy away from power and drivability. Under the hood of the S60 is a 300-horsepower turbo-charged six-cylinder engine, with six-speed automatic transmission and available all-wheel drive. Throw in traction control and an electronic stability system, and the S60 can hold its own against any car in its class on the road.

Among the S60's best qualities is its commitment to safety and its innovative safety features. Along with standard features such as side-impact and curtain airbags, Volvo has implemented its "City Safety" system on all of the S60s. The system is meant to protect against low-speed rear-endings. Optional Pedestrian Detection works similarly, automatically breaking at low speeds.
