2012 Volvo S60 T5 priced from $32,300

Article by Christian A., on November 7, 2010

Volvo’s front-wheel-drive 2012 S60 T5 sedan has a starting price of $32,300. It features a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine with 250hp and 266 pound-feet of torque and is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission. Volvo asserts that it can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds.

This is categorized to be on the quicker and more powerful end of the S60 T5's segment, including the Audi A4, Lexus IS 250, Acura TSX and the new Infiniti G25 (in terms of pricing).

S60 T5 is priced exactly $6250 lower than the starting price of the S60 T6, which offers all-wheel drive and a turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine that offers 300hp and 325 pound-feet of torque.

The base 2012 Volvo S60 T5 FWD is more expensive than the Acura and Infiniti, but is less costly than the Lexus, Audi, and BMW 328i.

Buyers will likely be drawn in due to the fact that the Volvo offers an exclusive five year/60,000-mile basic warranty and a five year/60,000-mile period of complimentary factory scheduled maintenance.

The S60 T5 has Corner Traction Control, which can brake the car's inner driven wheel while providing more power to the outer driven wheel. This possibly reduces understeer and improving handling.

Every S60 is offered with City Safety as standard. This feature can automatically stop the car if it detects a pedestrian while the vehicle is running from 2-18 mph. The five-cylinder S60 will offer all the expected options and technology. All the prices are inclusive of an $850 destination charge. [via AutomobileMag]
