The S60’s T8 trim level sits near the top of the Swedish luxury sedan’s model range, above the lesser T5 and T6 trims yet one rung below the top-spec Polestar Engineered model.

The S60 T8 boasts a combined 400 horsepower from its plug-in hybrid powertrain, which includes a 313-hp turbo- and supercharged 2.0-liter inline-four, an 87-hp motor-generator, and an 11.6-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The S60’s Polestar model boosts the system’s output further to 416 horses.

All S60’s feature an eight-speed automatic transmission. Entry-level T5 models come with front-wheel drive but T6 and T8 variants have standard all-wheel drive.

Although we’ve enjoyed testing the more aggressive R-Design version fo the new S60, we felt the more luxurious Inscription trim level is a better fit for the S60’s demeanor.

The S60 T8 is estimated by the EPA to have 22 miles of pure-electric driving range.

The S60 T8 Inscription model starts at $56,395 but several options pushed our example’s as-tested price to $64,195.

Among the options on our long-termer are an 1100-watt Bowers and Wilkins audio system, a luxury seating upgrade with ventilated and massaging front seats, heaters for the rear seats and the steering wheel, Volvo’s Park Assist Pilot automatic parallel-parking system, and 19-inch wheels in place of the stock 18s.

Even with the Inscription model’s tamer exterior execution, the latest S60 is an undeniably handsome design with good proportions and elegant curves.

We have yet to test an S60 T8 model but we expect our long-termer to reach 60 mph in 4.5 seconds when it makes its initial outing to the test track.
