Volvo S60 2014 – 2018 Common Faults

An indepth coverage of all the worst and common faults on these Volvo S60 (2014 – 2018) used car review.

Hello this was really beginning at 60 if you have a potential of volvo owner the answer may well be yes the swedish mark is second generation and 60 salon wars we were told at its launch back in 2010 the most dynamic wall ever was to talk at and to drive by 2014 too their design was in need of an update and that’s what it got addition k2 revised model result between

2014 and 2018 that we are going to look at is a potentially used car buy with his second generation s60 model status origins tenure and his team set out to create something as far away from the boxer will stereotype as they could get at the result is rather handsome with a gold like rufan and aston martin style tail flourishes brand marketers even go as fast to

Call this a four-door corp by which they mean the kind of really rakish design you’d get in a rival like same inside the cla class or volkswagen cc in the middle this is far boxer and more practical than either of those two cars but the floor wing supposedly race tracking spot looks are still pleasing on the eye it’s a sleek shape too with strong shoulder lines

And a slippery 0.29 cd drag coefficient this updated version got what wally described as more focused and the dominant looking headlamps added to create what was intended to bear more explorative front end there’s 60 horizontal lines were also emphasized at both the front and rear arm together with details such as a wide grill and daylight running lights the rest

Changes give this guy more striking to possible presence under the skin of course the original second generation s60 recipe is that it always was ford mondale based which means that the underpinnings are exactly the same as those used in the brand supposedly larger recent state and s67 models from this era both original marketing material for this model suggested

That bias would be so carried away by the sweeping shape that they’d be surprised to find this car has rear doors we wanted and we don’t think you will be either not to volvos market is this wasn’t a four-door corp if it was there wouldn’t be the class competitive headroom that’s on offered back here as with most cars in the compact executive segment to adults will

Be comfortable but 3 will be a squash in fact i thought rear seat idle will be even more uncomfortable than they could normally be in a car of this kind thanks to the narrow tuft center seat that to be perched upon outback the 339 little boot capacity is rather more compact i think it should be around 30 percent smaller than the trunk you’d get in say an old f0 from

This year indeed it’s even smaller than the space you’d get in the salon version of that costs more diminutive stabler made the audi a3 what was the key library of this issue which is why as you’d expect a 60 by 40 split fault in the rear bench is standard and also more surprisingly wirefold flat front passenger seat is also included across the range so that really

Long loads can be accommodated there’s an almost unique feature in this class but if it is not enough the new dealer will direct your doors at the 360 estate version of this car which offer 430 liter boot extendable to 1241 liters with the seats folded should this s6 trunk be sufficient for your needs you will at least find the space it does offer to be eminently

Usable we especially like the shallow hinged both floor compartment lift up the flap and you can mess up the floor with mighty stuff then when you remove your wireless or whatever the flap goes down again and you don’t have to worry about cleaning the boot flow i will automatically anyway out of sight out of mind and a little bit most of the s60 owners we thought

Were very happy with the cars but not available in bicycles which can be an awkward fit in this car check for parking bumps and scripts especially on the art design models the piccolobos are very susceptible to carbon the t5 and d5 models have quite an appetite for frontals so check this some life left in the rubber as usual check the allure for curb scoffing and

The rear of the cabin and the boot for damage caused by unruly kit or totally luggage you might not approach the idea of driving a wall salon with much enthusiasm something which might be justified in fear we were talking about one of the brand’s bigger models but we are not hezeka the mark describes as a premium spot salon as it runs on the underpinners of a ford

Mondeo universally recognized as one of the most dynamically adept family cars out there in other words they are great grounds for optimism when it comes to the on the road experience optimism largely justified once you are up to speed provided to take the trouble to adjust your thinking into the distinctly involve or feel this car has true it isn’t quite as sharp

Either to steer or to throw around the bends as a rival bmw or od but apparently this entire intentional the swedish brand reagent with such cars are too stiffy setup rubbing them in extremists of the security and predictability that create a really fluid drive it’s a 90 bill point but we have to agree that you really do feel confident and speed and the will of

This car if you’re prepared to throw it around a bit the bands flow together beautifully and it’s as sure-footed as any of its drivers from this era when conditions turn nasty the reasons why i have much to do with dynamic changes carefully developed over the most demanding british b roads you can take this a step further by opting for it our design model is stiffer

Suspension but personally we wouldn’t this film set up dilutes one of this car’s greatest watches the compost right at office other post offices super in fact the world is on offer in this car’s german rivals now there are other ways to make this s6 handle more sharply that don’t go off higher chiropractors bills namely find yourself an i60 host original open and

Put a tick in the box for the optional 4c which stands for continuously controlled chase’s concept active changes with the depth of dumping that wear comfort spot our advantage settings enables their driver to alter the character of the car based on the road yawn and the multi irene even if you do without this feature a couple of other standard inclusions are enough

To offer up a surprising degree of dynamic brow first surprisingly quick and direct stealing setup and secondly torque vectoring a setup which works through the turns to counter both understeer and wheel spin by letting micro breaking whichever front wheel is threatening to lose grip firing you on from bend to bend in a way that will be revolutionary to long time

World war honors if you are on a default digital model you’ll also benefit from a reduction in engine weight of as much as 90 kilograms in comparison to some of the other drive chains across the range with the last buck to carry around up front this car feels even more eager to turn in and all this from an s60 that still manages to offer more relaxed long distance

Refinement than any of the mark has yet produced it’s a surprising drive but we haven’t here talk about engines this is something we are not normally very prescriptive about insuring driving impressions and reviews like this different owners do after all have different needs when it comes to specifying what lies under the opponent with this improved mk2 s60 model

2 we are going to make an exception to that rule we can’t really see why it buy this car with any engine other than the default diesel unit they understand why that is a little background information is needed as a brand all traditionally relied on a ford engine where for its modern era models in the period around the turn of the century a safe approach but not

A very profitable one which is why when the chinese zhenjang gili corporation is quite the company in 2010 the first priority was to make the golden book make herself sufficient and the underbonnet department clearly such a goal would take time to accomplish which was why the original version of the s60 model was first launched with the same four derived 1.6 2.0

And 2.4 liter engines used in other volvo models but behind the scenes the engineers were hard at work completely in their own in-house range of power plants the so-called driver e a range of engines all of these were to be two point solution in size if the petrol diesel with a lineup of different power outputs brought enough to eventually completely replace the

Existing ford units back in 2014 through only one of the new generation driving engines had been brought to market the 181 bhp 16 with diesel power plant you’ll find in the default model with recommend here at a stroke this engine makes the typical volvo used car sales person’s job rather awkward as it’s cleaner and more economical than the feeblest 115 bhp 1.6

Liter d2 s60 but fast and more responsive than the prices diesel in the lineup the more power plant 215 bhp 2.4 liter d5 s60 variant let’s be more specific as well as being able to average nearly 75 amp engine limit under 100 grams per kilometer of co2 the default gets to 62 miles per hour from resting just 7.6 seconds on the way to 140 miles per hour even if you

Opt for an 8-speed automatic version the stars are hardly affected such are the benefits of modern technology of course there’s always the possibility that your budget might not be able to stretch up to default purchase all that you might be offered as a miserable deal on an s60 with one of the older engines to allow for that scenario will tell you that if you opt

For a 1.6 literature d2 warrant you choose to boost your diesel s60s power up to 136 bhp in the 2.083 model you’re looking at a 0 to 62 miles per hour sprint timer of around 11 seconds in route to a maximum speed in the region of 120 miles per hour and the top speed is up to 115 bhpd5 version those figures are improved to 7.5 seconds and 143 miles per hour waiting

To can up a little further by paying action for a polisher performance pack that marginally boosts the above output to 130 bhp but if you do that you’ll end up paying a lot of money for a car that still isn’t a better all-round package than the s60 d4 would recommend volvo founders ghost of larson and alsa gabriel song would have been surprised by this revised

Mk2 model s60 but not too surprised after all the things we expect the brand to deliver are certainly very much evident class live in safety solid build quality and a cool classic scandinavian feel adjusted in this case for the first time they’ve been fused with more vibrant design i drive focus chases and high tech engine technology it’s that the last that should

Really revitalize this car’s appeal as a more cost effective alternative to german brand compact executive saloons any car that can deliver 99 grams per kilometer of co2 62 miles per from rest in under 7 seconds and nearly 75 mpg in regular use has to be worth it of anyone’s respect a small brand roller maybe but it was punching well above its weight hair true that

May not quite be the not only sporting car we were promised in the original ads and it could be a little more practical to on the plus size 2 when you will find it hard not to be worn over by the smooth riding safely sensible volvo package this s60 can deliver overall then also have here is a less returns 60 a highly impressive package that an intriguing alternative

To the company executive mainstream if you try it if you have or had such a modest information about what an outbreaks in the comments
