2015 Volvo S60

Up to 19 MPG city / 28 MPG hwy
$33,300 - $45,700

BMW's 3-Series has worn a sport-sedan crown that's been tough to topple for many years, but Volvo's S60 is as good a car as any to try. Safety is a given with Volvo, and the S60 earned the highest rating among luxury European models in the new IIHS small overlap test. Not satisfied to just save its own occupants, Volvo has pioneered the world's first Pedestrian Detection technology, a system that watches specifically for people in the trajectory of travel and automatically applies the brakes to prevent hitting them. Important as it is, safety isn't everything, so the S60 also comes to the table with some serious performance. The base model manages 250 horsepower from its 2.5-liter turbocharged Inline 5 to power the front wheels as standard, or all four wheels optionally. The S60 T6 gains a cylinder and .5-liters of displacement to send 300 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque to all the wheels. The top-tier R-Design model ups power to 325 horses and 354 lb-ft of torque to push the limits of the sport-tuned chassis. Any combination of components propelling the car will be enjoyed from the S60's sleek, modern cabin boasting what are probably the most comfortable seats in the world. See more... See Less

Pros Cons
The interior styling & comfort is fantastic Poor gas mileage

Excellent handling and road feel without bumpy, stiff ride. Interior trim cheapens vehicle due to plastic looking like metal but not metal
Styling of the seats - very high quality leather / feel, very comfortable Trunk storage - spare tire takes up most of trunk.
Vehicle weight - not influenced by wind Bumpy ride due to stiff suspension
Ride is very smooth and acceleration is nice Have no feel for backing distance - need rear camera
Seat comfort and convenient controls within reach Steering wheel lacks impression of high quality
Overall styling of the car interior & exterior Navigation controls - to hard to operate, not intuititive - radio also
Interior comfort - took 2500 mile trip and my back don't hurt Infotainment system controls far too complicated.
Performance and acceleration are superb No awd option for 5 - cylinder model
