2020 Volvo S60 vs 2019 Volvo S60

Serving Chamblee, GA

The Volvo S60 only gets a few small changes between the 2020 and 2019 model years. The 2020 S60 now comes with more safety technology, including blind-spot monitoring and steering collision avoidance. The instrument panel with a virtual display now comes standard. You'll find some changes to the R-Design this year too, which now has four-zone climate control, a tailored dashboard for the driver, and interior lighting. With the 2020 model year, you can also select a premium Bowers & Wilkins audio system for your vehicle. The 2019 Volvo S60 got a full design change over the 2018 model year. Starting this year, consumers could choose to get a high-performance variant called the T8, which is a hybrid plug-in. Beginning in 2019, the Pilot Assist feature was semi-automated and newly optional. Both model years feature impressive braking performance and fast acceleration. They have cushioned, comfortable, and support seats, and many driving aids available through the Pilot Assist feature.


With its fast acceleration and ample power, the S60 is made with performance in mind. Starting in 2019, you also have a choice of gasoline or hybrid engines. The base engine is a 2.0L with four cylinders. This engine is turbocharged. Its power output reaches 250 HP at 5,500 RPM. The second engine in the lineup is a 2.0L with four cylinders. It also has turbo-charged capabilities.

Additionally, it is supercharged for optimal performance. This engine generates 316 HP at 5,700 RPM. The third engine option for both model years is a 2.0L T8 engine. This combined gasoline and hybrid engine produces up to 400 HP at 6,000 RPM. Front-wheel drive is standard on the base engine, while the others get all-wheel drive instead.


Both the 2020 and 2019 Volvo S60 have dramatic and distinctive exteriors and cabins. They share a common unique feature called Thor's headlights, which are hammer-shaped lights equipped with LED bulbs for visibility and a unique look. The base trim of both model years is called the Momentum. This trim features 18-inch wheels and a cabin with leather upholstery. The driver's seat is multi-way adjustable, and you get a panoramic sunroof. The R-Design adds sportier exterior accents and LED fog lights. The T8 Polestar has larger 19-inch wheels and Brembo brakes. The Premium package adds adaptive headlights, automatic high beams, and washers for the headlights.


All trims in both the 2020 and 2019 S60 are well-equipped. Even at the base level, you get leather seats and a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with the Momentum. This trim gets dual-zone climate control as well. An available package adds a nine-inch driver's information display, dual USB ports, and a 10-speaker sound system. The R-Design gets four-zone climate control, 10-way adjustable seats, and four-zone climate control. The Inscription features heated and ventilated seats.
