2015 Volvo S60 Consumer Review
The S-60 is first-class and highly attractive sports sedan. It sets the standard in safety features. It has a 4-cylinder engine with Turbo boost. There is responsive handling and great performance. My model is the front-wheel drive although it also comes with all-wheel drive. It handles great on snowy roads. The interior is comfortable and roomy for 4 adults and one child in the middle rear seat. Heated seats are a must for northern climates and I use them daily. They are fully heated within 5 minutes. The instrumentation is easy to see and navigate. The infotainment system does take some getting used to as it isn't very intuitive. The audio system is clear. It is a sleek-looking sedan. No more boxy Volvo sedans! It has a contemporary front end. One feature that isn't desirable is the smallish trunk. I have had much difficulty trying to fit large luggage for 3 adults into the trunk. I usually have to put one large suitcase in the back seat and the carry-on pieces will go inside the trunk. The maintenance costs are predictably more expensive than domestic vehicles. A replacement battery just cost $280. But that is to be expected for a luxury vehicle. All-in-all, this is a great, safe, good-looking, and reliable care.
