The Top Gear car review:Volvo S60

£21,890£35,990
6/10
Overall verdict
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
 

For: 

Comfort and interior quality is top notch and safety tech is amazing

Against: 

Not the most inspiring drive, to say the least

Overview

What is it?

Curvy and distinctive Swedish saloon that puts safety at the forefront of its not inconsiderable engineering prowess, the S60 is giving up some of its past Volvo identity to become another accomplished but indistinguishable Euro-box with competent road manners, good refinement and lots of kit at a keen price.

This facelifted one gives the front end a much-needed refresh, and also tries to clean up the mass of controls inside, although with more limited success here.
