Trim: R Design Plus

Engine: 2.0 T5

THIS 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol pumps out 247bhp. That’s enough for a 0-60mph time of 6.9 seconds, and acceleration builds strongly from around 1800rpm. However, while the S60 is far from sluggish, the rival BMW 330i and Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce are significantly quicker.
