With Simplistic but Refined Design, the 2019 Volvo S60 Offers Three Trim Levels of Luxury

Volvo has built its reputation around offering class-leading safety features and well-rounded luxury. Volvo vehicles have been recognized for their elegant, understated designs, high-quality materials, and sophisticated technology, winning them international claim and prestige. The new 2019 S60 carries on Volvo's tradition of offering elegance and a variety of available features.

At Volvo Cars Hilton Head, we are excited to show you all that the newest S60 is capable of, and to do that, we have to explore the three available trim levels and their available features. With our wide variety of S60 trim levels and available features, you might be wondering how you will be able to choose between them.

By comparing the three trims, it should become easier to discover which trim is best for you. Everyone's driving needs are a little different, and the 2019 S60 has the variety of features for you to meet all of them. The three trim levels of the S60 include:

  • Momentum
  • R-Design
  • Inscription

Explore our new Volvo S60 models and features, and allow us to walk you through the various differences that you will find on each trim level.


The Momentum is the base model for the S60, but you can expect more than enough luxury features to keep you satisfied. The Momentum is a great option for those that have found all the luxury features they need and want to take advantage of the lower starting price.

With plenty of available features, the Momentum has an exceptional number of features to customize your experience but doesn't offer some of the features at the highest level. Some performance and top-level luxury features are not available at this level, so it becomes a balance of knowing what you're needs are and weighing it against the price you want.

Standout Features

If you're looking for a high degree of ride comfort and power when you need it, the Momentum offers lots of power and sophistication even as the base trim level. The Momentum is available in two different engine options and drivetrains so that you can have the opportunity to have the performance that you need.

The T5 forward-wheel drive Momentum comes with a four-cylinder 250-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged engine that generates 258 pound-feet of torque and an eight-speed Geartronicâ„¢ Automatic with Start/Stop and Adaptive Shift.

The T6 all-wheel drive Momentum delivers even more power and traction with a 316-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged engine that generates 296 pound-feet of torque. This engine option also comes with an eight-speed Geartronicâ„¢ Automatic with Start/Stop and Adaptive Shift for increased efficiency and a seamless driving experience.

The Momentum offers many of the same performance features that you can find on the Inscription and R-Design trims. Some of these performance features include:

  • Hill Start Assist
  • Drive Mode Settings
  • Electrical Power Steering Personalization
  • Cap-less Fuel Filling
  • Available Four-C Active Chassis


The S60 Inscription is the sweet spot for many drivers, offering the broadest range of available and standard features Unlike the Momentum, the Inscription comes in three engine options, and while the Inscription doesn't have the trim exclusive sports design of the R-Design, the Inscription comes with the most luxury features and technology.

Technology Features and Interior Design

When you step into the Inscription, the attention to detail and the advanced technology available is astounding. The Inscriptions design is focused on delivering drivers a sense of relaxation, calm, and comfort that is reflected on all levels. The Inscription departs from the Momentum by offering auto dimming exterior mirrors, Compass in the rear view mirror, and a 12.3-inch digital driver display.

While many of the technology features on the Inscription are the same as the R-Design, there are few areas where the Inscription has the upper hand. When it comes to safety features interior amenities, the Inscription comes with standard LED Front Fog Lights with Cornering Lights while they are optional on the R-Design.

The Inscription also comes with a trim-exclusive available backrest massage and seat cushion extensions for the front seats. The Inscription also offers ventilated Nappa Leather upholstery and a tailored dashboard for an even more immersive luxury experience.


The R-Design differs from the other two trim levels by having a heavier focus on a sportier driving experience. The R-Design also offers more technology features than the Momentum with Harman Kardon Premium Sound system and keyless entry with a hands-free power tailgate. How the R-Design distinguishes itself from the Inscription is by focusing on an athletic design with trim-exclusive features.

Performance Features

The R-Design is available with both T5 FWD and T6 AWD drivetrain and engine options, but it shares the T8 eAWD Twin Engine Plug-in Hybrid only with the Inscription. This option combines the power of a 313-horsepower direct-injected turbocharged and supercharged engine with an 87-horsepower electric motor for an impressive total of up to 400 horsepower.

The R-Design is different from the rest of the trims by offering performance features like paddle shifters, an available Sport chassis, and Sport pedals. This allows you to get even more enjoyment from your driving experience by having engaged features that are meant to maximize your performance.
