What used Volvo S60 saloon will I get for my budget?
A whisker under £4000 will get you behind the wheel of an S60, but this will be for a car with a high mileage. We think it'd be better to up the ante to between £6000 and £8000 where you'll find a good 2013 or 2014 example with below average mileage. In the same price range you might even get your hands on a decent 2014 or 2015 S60 with slightly above average milage but with a full service history. Spend between £10,000 and £12,000 for a 2015 or 2016 S60 in good condition with around 40,000 miles. If you're looking to splash out then you'll get a 2017 or even a 2018 with low miles for upwards of £15,000.
How much does it cost to run a Volvo S60 saloon?
Not surprisingly the diesels are the most economical, with any of the various D2-badged models being the most efficient, with some models returning a claimed official average of 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 99g/km. Petrol-engined cars will cost you more at the pumps, with the most economical version being the 1.6 T3, with claimed official figures of 51.4mpg under the old NEDC testing regime.
Annual car tax (VED) is based on CO2 output for all cars registered before April 2017, so the diesels will be cheap to tax. However, cars registered after that date will pay a flat rate of tax currently £145 a year.To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information.
Insurance costs for the S60 should be fairly reasonable, though, as that safety kit and Volvo’s good reputation for security mean that the groupings are relatively low. Servicing, however, won’t be inexpensive, because Volvo dealers do not provide fixed price servicing, but they are competitive with other premium brands.
