Volvo V60 T5

The 2017 Volvo V60 T5 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that makes a confident 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, which can be delivered either to the front wheels or all wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain also features a noteworthy automatic engine start/stop system, which conserves gas by shutting off the engine when you're stopped at red lights, for example. This helps to boost EPA fuel economy estimates to 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway.
