Volvo All Electric 2019 Review

The clean, straightforward design of the Volvo All Electric 2019 is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.

Volvo All Electric 2019 Release date and Specs

The Volvo All Electric 2019 SUV is in its last year before a redesign, but thankfully not a rethink. It’s spacious, quiet, comfortable, and capable, mostly thanks to its standard all-wheel-drive system and chunky flat-4 enging. The Volvo All Electric 2019 offers a pleasantly high driving position, lots of front elbow room, and a dashboard far enough away to make the interior feel spacious. The upright shape and low window line make the interior airy and light and give excellent outward visibility.

Noise suppression is good, with more sound deadening added last year, as well as an acoustic windshield, thicker window glass, and better door seals. This helps address a chronic Volvo All Electric 2019 Review weak point and makes the car much more pleasant for longer trips.

Over the past few years, Volvo has thoroughly transformed its car lineup. Its new and revamped models share the company’s modular car architecture, versatile powertrain family and clean, simple approach to design. All this newness has made the ancient S60 look, well, ancient. But the revolution has finally come to the S60 — the new model not only looks like a scaled-down version of its bigger siblings, it drives like one of them, too. That’s mostly good, but there’s some bad in there, too.

Out are the swooping curves of the old model, and in are the straight lines, upright grille, and traditional sedan shape. It looks athletic, thanks to subtle accents over the wheel arches, and a body that looks almost vacuum-formed around its mechanical parts. The front wheels are pushed to the far edges, far ahead of the A-pillar, reducing overhang as much as possible and giving it the appearance of a rear-drive car.

The interior follows the exterior’s lead, echoing the S90’s themes in a slightly narrower package. The dashboard’s simple, wide design, the slender vents, and the elegant Sensus infotainment system look like carbon copies of the bigger sedan. R-Design and Polestar models add attractive leather surfacing with nice stitching on the dash, but low-end models make do with soft-touch plastics — albeit nice ones with attractive grain.

The higher-trim front seats are the best in the business, providing ample bolstering and thick, luxurious cushioning. Lower trim models don’t get as much adjustability or support, so this upgrade comes highly recommended. Space up front is ample too, while surprisingly, the back seat is actually comfortable for adults. I could sit behind my 5-foot-11-inch self with more than enough room to be at ease on a long drive, which isn’t something I can say for many cars in this segment.

So the S60 is beautiful to behold inside and out, but how does it drive? Well in the case of both the T6 R-Design and the Polestar, the answer is good but with some rough edges. In this review, we’ll be focusing on the R-Design only, and you can read our impressions of the Polestar soon.

The R-Design we drove was an all-wheel-drive T6 model that has a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It’s the same engine available elsewhere in the Volvo line, and is similarly quite punchy and responsive. It doesn’t even feel that much slower than the Polestar Engineered S60, though it does lack the down-low torque provided by that model’s electric motor.

Volvo All Electric 2019 Exterior and Interior Review

Top safety scores and continual updates to safety features put the Volvo All Electric 2019 among the safest cars in its class. All Volvo All Electric 2019 include a rearview camera as standard equipment. This year, all Limited and Touring models now come with blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts. Those features are also added to Premium models ordered with Subaru’s EyeSight system.

The best value in Volvo All Electric 2019 is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
