VOLVO S60 review

NGC verdict 02.11.2011

No Volvo I've ever driven got the stares and positive looks of this car. It's a big evolutionary step for Volvo and makes the S60 a stronger rival for the Audi A4 than I expected with little compromise in the hunt for good fuel economy. That said, keener drivers will still opt for the more agile, and rear-wheel drive BMW 3-Series.

Prices are competitive though some friends thought the instruments looked 'basic'. Irritating electronic hand brake (try driving on snowy, hilly roads or parking between vehicles on a slope) would put me off the car. I would also want a normal spare wheel not just a can of sealant. Otherwise it's a stylish, pleasant car especially for those doing long motorway hauls.
