Ownership cost

What used Volvo S60 saloon will I get for my budget?

Prices for the Volvo S60 start at £18,000 for an early car with a high mileage, so it's best to budget for a spend between £21,000 and £25,000 or more for something with a more average number of miles from late-2018 or early 2019. Spend between £25,000 and £30,000 on a used 2020 car, more for the plug-in hybrid versions.

How much does it cost to run a Volvo S60 saloon?

MPG

The 2.0 T5 petrol averages 41.5mpg under the latest WLTP tests, where the plug-in hybrid version, the T8, averages an extraordinary 166.2mpg. You probably won't see this figure in the real world, unless you charge it up regularly and your journeys are short, and the car fits into your lifestyle. 

Road tax

All versions of the S60 fall under the flat-rate fee of the current road tax system, unless it was worth more than £40,000 when new (including any factory-fitted optional extras). If it was, you will have to pay an additional surcharge every year until the car reaches six years of age. The road tax is currently £150 a year and the luxury tax £325 a year.

Servicing

Volvo's servicing certainly isn’t the cheapest around, but you can spread the costs with a monthly service plan.

Insurance

The cheapest S60 to insure is in group 34 and the plug-in hybrid T in 42. On the whole, the S60 sits in higher insurance groups than the Audi A4 and could cost you more per year to insure.
