Volvo S60 Overview

The S60 is one of the best Volvos ever, with agile handling, a taut and steady ride, and a suite of advanced safety systems. The five-cylinder provided lively acceleration and respectable fuel economy. The top-level T6 trim with AWD is quick and refined. The interior is quiet and nicely laid out, and the front seats are very comfortable. But the rear is tight, and the trunk is small. Safety features include City Safety, which can automatically brake the car to prevent a collision, and an optional pedestrian-detection system that intervenes to avoid hitting a person. The V60 wagon and a new four-cylinder turbo engine are new.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
