What's New for the 2021 S60?

More standard features in 2021 make the S60 perfect for life around Los Angeles. All models are now equipped with LED headlights and fog lights. Blind-spot monitoring is also now a standard feature for the entire lineup. If that's not enough, even the base model now gets keyless entry as well as auto-dimming and power-folding side mirrors. Finally, two USB-C ports replace the previously standard 12-volt outlet.

Powertrain Options

Which of the three available powertrains matches your driving style here in Santa Monica? Your first option is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine that will have your S60 pumping out 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This engine will get you an EPA-estimated 23 miles-per-gallon in the city and 34 miles-per-gallon on the highway. Like all of the options, it is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The second engine option is also a 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder, but it is both turbocharged and supercharged. The result? It makes a staggering 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It still offers a very respectable fuel economy, with EPA estimates sitting at 21 miles-per-gallon city and 32 miler-per-gallon highway. Finally, there is that same engine as part of a plug-in hybrid setup. It makes 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque for a truly thrilling experience behind the wheel here in Venice.

Available Trim Levels

There are three different trim levels for the S60 available. The entry-level Momentum has luxury and practicality to offer you. Some of the standard features include:

  • Alloy wheels
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Leatherette upholstery
  • City Safety package
  • Nine-inch touchscreen
  • Android Auto
  • Apple CarPlay

The second option, called the R-Design, builds off of that strong start. It will have you sitting on Nappa leather sport front seats and enjoying four-zone automatic climate control. It also gets a hands-free trunk and navigation for added convenience here in Los Angeles. Finally, this more athletic model gets a lowered sport chassis. The top trim, known as the Inscription, loses some of the sportier R-Design features while gaining driftwood inlays and a unique grille.

City Safety

The highly advanced City Safety technology is found on all three trim levels of the 2021 S60. It utilizes cameras along with radar to constantly scan the sedan's surroundings. Other vehicles, cyclists, and larger animals can all be detected by this system. When a potential collision is detected, City Safety will first try to warn you. When necessary, it also has the ability to hit the brakes to try to avoid the collision.

Also standard for all three models is Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. An optional safety feature found on only select models is the Pilot Assist. By combining lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control, Pilot Assist is essentially a form of semi-autonomous driving. It can greatly reduce the strain on the driver, even in heavy traffic situations.
