For better traction, the Ghibli has larger standard tires than the S60 (F:245/45R19 & R:275/40R19 vs. 235/45R18). The Ghibli’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the S60 (F:245/40R20 & R:285/35R20 vs. 235/45R18).

The Ghibli’s standard 275/40R19 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the S60’s standard 45 series tires. The Ghibli’s optional 245/35R21 front and 285/30R21 rear tires have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile than the S60’s optional 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Ghibli has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the S60. The Ghibli’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 19-inch wheels optional on the S60.

Suspension and Handling

The Ghibli has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The S60’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The front and rear suspension of the Ghibli uses coil springs for better ride, handling and control than the S60, which uses transverse leafs springs in the rear. Coil springs compress more progressively and offer more suspension travel for a smoother ride with less bottoming out.

The Ghibli offers an optional driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads. The S60’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

The Ghibli’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The S60 doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Ghibli’s wheelbase is 4.9 inches longer than on the S60 (118 inches vs. 113.1 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Ghibli is 1.4 inches wider in the front and 2.1 inches wider in the rear than on the S60.

The Ghibli’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the S60’s (55% to 45%). This gives the Ghibli more stable handling and braking.

The Ghibli S Q4 handles at .91 G’s, while the S60 Polestar pulls only .90 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

Because it has more passenger and cargo room, the EPA rates the Ghibli a Large car, while the S60 is rated a Compact.

The Ghibli has 12 cubic feet more passenger volume than the S60 (108 vs. 96).

The Ghibli has 1.4 inches more front headroom, 1.7 inches more front shoulder room, 1.6 inches more rear headroom and 2 inches more rear shoulder room than the S60.

The engine in the Ghibli is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the S60. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because the accessory belts are in front.

The Ghibli’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel and glides the driver’s seat back, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The S60 doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The Ghibli’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The S60 does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The Ghibli will cost the buyer less in the long run because of its superior resale value. The IntelliChoice estimates that the Ghibli will retain % of its original price after five years, while the S60 only retains -498.28% to 42%.
