Volvo S60 first drive

Latest swedish sedan refferd as the sportiest and "the naughtiest volvo ever" is the new volvo s60.
Overall, the new S60's visuals are fresh and attractive, yet they clearly echo the strong-shouldered heritage of the previous generation – one of the first few models that sparked Volvo's Peter Horbury-led design renaissance.
All S60s will come standard with Volvo's sport seats, and our cabin arrived decked out an attractive Beechwood Brown hides and Shimmer Graphite inlays scheme (that's orangey-brown leather and smoked silver trim to you non-designer types). While comfortable and sharp looking, we typically desire a bit more lateral bolstering in sport sedan chairs, but otherwise the comfort, adjustability and ergonomics of the S60 remain first-rate.
Volvo has chosen to launch the S60 in full-house T6 all-wheel-drive trim, but despite this, the price of entry is $38,550 ($37,700 MSRP plus $850 destination). While that's well above the outgoing car, there's gobs of additional power and kit, and crucially, it still seems like a very good value. For comparison's sake, to purchase an equivalent 300-horsepower 2011 BMW 335i XDrive would cost $43,475 – and that's with a much shorter standard equipment list.
