The Volvo S60 is a classy, comfortable car with a quality interior that compares well against other premium rivals in the class. It's powered by a smooth 1.6-litre petrol engine that offers decent performance and still returns good economy figures.
It’s spacious enough for general family car needs and, as you would expect from Volvo, it comes with stacks of safety kit including six airbags and an autonomous braking system that prevents low-speed impacts.
The diesel engines in the range may offer greater fuel economy, but if you don’t cover a lot of miles regularly then this version of the S60 is the one to consider.
There’s a bit of wind noise up at motorway speeds and it’s generally not as refined as its rivals, and at those faster speeds the light steering is not so welcome.
Should I add any options?
SE trim comes with alloy wheels, cruise control, climate control, Bluetooth and an upgraded stereo. You may be tempted to add speed-sensitive steering for £225, a rear camera for £375 or front parking sensors which are £325.
Anything else I should know?
This discount includes £500 off when you purchase PCP finance at 6.9% APR. If you don’t want to take this finance option then add on £500 to this saving.
