The cheapest T8 trim is the Core, from $52,345 (plus $1,095 destination). The S60 Recharge T8 Ultimate Black Edition you see here, meanwhile, starts at $59,740 (plus destination). All versions of the S60 get a standard panoramic moonroof, keyless entry, dual-zone climate control with an air purifier, 360-degree camera, leather seats with front-row power, adaptive cruise control, Harman Kardon Sound, and Google-powered infotainment. The latter runs on a 9-inch central touchscreen, with the driver getting a 12.3-inch digital display.
As with other Volvo models using the new system, it’s generally an improvement. Having Google Maps is a real boon over the third-party navigation most cars settle on, and the Google Assistant voice control is capable, too. Volvo’s iconography feels a little weedy, though, especially compared to what Polestar is doing with the same underlying software.
The Ultimate package upgrades the power front seats, adds heating to them, throws in a head-up display, and upgrades the standard adaptive cruise control to Volvo’s Pilot Assist. That’s a hands-on system that follows the lane as well as keeping pace with the car ahead. Volvo’s excellent Bowers and Wilkins Premium Sound package is pricey — but worth it — at $3,200 extra.
The $750 Climate Package, meanwhile, throws in rear seat heating, a heated steering wheel, and high-pressure headlamp cleaners. Stepping up to the Polestar Engineered, meanwhile, gets you a specially-tuned chassis, Brembo brakes, and unique 19-inch wheels.
