New engine and gearbox, comfort, safety, sporty styling
Low speed ride, interior space
The S60 gets a stronger diesel engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox that makes it a competent alternative to popular German luxury sedans
Editor's View of Volvo S60
The Volvo S60 till now was a fringe player in the luxury sedan segment. The specifications didn’t hold up against its rivals and the space and luxury was not right up there. But a new engine and gearbox has changed that and the comfier cabin gives the S60 that added bit of luxury now. It handles well and performs on par in the segment. The S60 on the whole however is still a far better car to drive and own than before.
