What should I be paying?

Yep, there really are no diesels. So if such things as company car tax concern you, it’ll be the T6 and T8 plug-in hybrid versions that are likely to appeal most in the S60 range. Prices haven’t yet been confirmed for the new S60, which goes on sale in early 2019 (ignore the automated pricing for the old model under the title of this review). But Volvo suggests it’ll be competitive with its German foes. So that means a starting point of £30,000, with the top-spec T8 in the mid 50s.

There’s a chance you won’t own your S60, mind. Volvo is trying to pioneer a whole new car ownership model, one which started with the new XC40. Called ‘Care by Volvo’, the idea is that one monthly payment covers the car loan, servicing, insurance, and various add-ons, including the loan of any different Volvo for a week a year (in case that SUV itch really needs scratching perhaps).

Because the insurance is built into this flat fee, you can lend the car to anyone with a licence (via an app actually, so they don't even need the key). If you currently pay a high premium this might look like good value, but if your premium is low, perhaps not so much. Once Volvo properly confirms pricing, we’ll know better.
