2022 Volvo S60 T5 Momentum Review
2022 Volvo S60 T5 Momentum Review – Volvo said it became an SUV company, but it has not completely ignored its roots. The new generation mid-size Sedan, Volvo S60 T5 is backed by the same Scalable Product Architecture that supports its twin SUV, XC60. T5 will represent an entry-level longer drivetrain option in Australia, powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine.
With the launch of the S60 sedan and wagon V60 in Europe this year, the Volvo XC90 became the most remarkable, oldest model in the lineup. After being launched recently in 2015, it was still relatively shiny, but the Swedish maker then released a hit after a hit SUV, recording back to back Wheels COTY won with XC60 first and then XC40.
S60 is never as tight as a premium sedan. A kind of rival for German heavy bats such as the BMW 3-series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4, the Swedish steering and the usual ride was never much troublesome that trio. Somehow it worked out both less and less delivered. But how time has changed.
For starters, just look at the problem. As the barrage of the latest models led by a pair of headlights inspired by Thor’s hammer and a slightly wider grip, the S60 is a sweet-looking object. Even against the triple German premiums, or perhaps the Jaguar XE UK, it will definitely claim a new fan. But it will also soothe the crowd, have all the latest active driving assistance technologies. Volvo tends to be clever in such things.
Volvo with a bag of money, and then take a refreshing approach to handoff. The result is a series of convincing drivetrains, slick aesthetics and some of the latest technologies throughout its new model.
2022 Volvo S60 T5 Interior Design
Get into the new S60 and there is a little more space than a slightly seductive dimension, but unlike the new 3-series that opens its shirt as it grows, Volvo is visually slightly softer. Comfortable and supportive, and the ergonomics are fine, except for the steering wheel, although it feels comfortable in hand, it can put the latch too close to the palm of the hand when rotated. In the back is a 442L boot that is equivalent to a segment and there is plenty of storage and a thoughtful touch around the cab, as you find in XC60.
The Australian Volvo said it would target the equivalent German model but would add more equipment, promising a series of goods for sensible coins. We hope the T5 will enter the market at a price of slightly above $60,000, with inclusion such as the 9.0-inch infotainment system, a 12.0-inch digital driver display, automatic driving assistance, heated front, and back seats and retractable rear window curtains.
The Under-hood T5 is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, generating 184kW and 350Nm through an eight-speed automatic transmission. It has no turbo blow and T6 supercharged, and of course the crap plug-in hybrid ‘ twin-engine ‘ T8, but it’s great for seamless acceleration and cruising along the highway. Volvo claimed the time was 0-100 km/h 6.5 seconds which was probably in perfect condition but was hampered by heavy Swedish rain. We also rode the front wheels that prevented the grip. The all-wheel-drive version that Australia has set to accept is a faster touch and will undoubtedly be the grip.
2022 Volvo S60 T5 Engine
The S60 T5 base has a 250-cylinder four-hp turbocharged that drives the front wheels; The T6 version has a standard all-wheel drive and obtains power 66 horsepower from its additional supercharger. Power increased to 400 horsepower in the all-wheel-drive T8 hybrid plug-in, and the best Engineered Polestar T8 is even more sporty. Its plug-in-hybrid powertrain generates 415 horsepower and 494 lb-ft torque as well as an all-wheel-drive feature.
Along with adaptive silencer and exclusive 19-inch wheels, Polestar editions are solely available as part of the Care by Volvo subscription plan. During the first drive of high spec S60 trim levels, we were very impressed with how well they handled. The steering proved fast and precise along the winding roads, and there was an incredible bend handle. Likewise, the robust model T6 316-HP and Polestar Engineered is effectively fast and responsive.
