Job: Data analyst
Drives: Volvo V60
“My V60 is perfect for family life with my two kids, and it’s one of the most stylish cars in its class.
“Yet Volvo has managed to take the looks to the next level with this new model. It has great lines and a slick profile; boxy estates seem so far in the past now. This is a car you’d want to be seen in.
“I love Volvo’s ‘Thor’s Hammer’ headlights, too, because they look good and they’re adaptive, so they won’t dazzle oncoming drivers.
“The large boot will make life easy, as will the powered tailgate, and the option of foot-activated hands-free opening is great.
“There’s loads of space for passengers, too, which should keep adults and children relaxed.
“But the biggest improvement inside is the new 9.3in portrait infotainment touchscreen. It seems easy to use and will make long journeys more of a pleasure.
“One of Volvo’s biggest selling points has to be its reputation for safety, and active systems such as automatic emergency braking hold huge appeal for me.
“Despite the political upheaval around diesel, it will remain my fuel of choice, because my V60 is incredibly economical on the motorway and the latest diesel engines are actually very clean.”
