Does the Volvo S60 offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto?

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto both come standard on the S60. Both of these systems enable you to use your smartphone apps through the S60's touchscreen. Since this car has a standard 9-inch display, it's easy to see the details of your music or navigation directions.

Does the Volvo S60 have a backup camera?

All S60 trim levels come with a standard rear park assist camera. When you shift into reverse, the video feed from the camera is displayed on the screen in the center of the dashboard. Do you park in a busy or crowded area? You can also upgrade to the Volvo 360-degree surround-view camera, which shows you the view in every direction.

Does the Volvo S60 offer remote start?

Yes. This feature is included in Volvo On Call, which is standard on every S60 model. With this system, you'll need to download the Volvo On Call app. Then, you can use it to set the temperature inside the car and start the vehicle from any location; that way, it's warm and ready to go when you arrive.

Is the Volvo S60 good at driving in the snow?

If you're planning to drive in the snow around East Lansing, it's a good idea to choose an S60 trim level with all-wheel drive. This system adjusts the power to your wheels so that you can get better traction on snowy or icy roads around Dewitt. To give you extra peace of mind in the snow, features like stability control and run-off road mitigation come standard on all S60 models.

Does the Volvo S60 require special fuel?

The Volvo S60 uses standard gasoline. If you choose an S60 with the T5 powertrain, Volvo recommends that you use premium unleaded to get the best performance from the engine. However, this engine can also run on regular unleaded with an 87 octane rating.

If you're planning to get an S60 with a T6 or T8 engine, you'll need to use premium unleaded gas with an octane rating of 91 or higher. This is because these engines feature high-performance parts. Volvo also recommends that you use a top tier detergent gasoline whenever you can to help the engine last longer as you drive in and around Mason, MI.

How many trim levels does the Volvo S60 offer?

The S60 comes in three different trim levels: the Inscription, Momentum, and R-Design. Within each trim level, you can choose the T5 engine in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the T6 with all-wheel drive, or the T8 with all-wheel drive.

Does the Volvo S60 have Apple CarPlay?

Yes; every model has Apple CarPlay. To use it, you'll need a compatible iPhone.
