Volvo S60 review

£22,105 - £52,395
Published: 13 Jan 2015
Another safe and sensible saloon from the Volvo team. Which mixes Swedish style with good engines

Good stuff

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

Bad stuff

Not the most inspiring drive, to say the least


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.

What's the verdict?

A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
