The Volvo S60 offers one of the nicest interiors in the executive car class and (as you'd expect from the Swedish manufacturer) is impressive on the safety front. Opting for the S60 Recharge plug-in hybrid makes it a good choice for company car drivers, but the price and not-so-fun driving experience make it hard to justify over a BMW 330e.
The trimSee full equipment
This entry-level trim gives you a generous amount of standard equipment and includes 18in alloy wheels, cruise control, keyless entry and start, automatic LED headlights, automatic window wipers, front and rear parking sensors, heated front seats, adjustable lumbar support, a 9in touchscreen infotainment system and lots of safety kit. The lowered sports chassis makes the S60 a bit uncomfortable to drive, so we prefer Inscription trim, which comes with a softer dynamic chassis.
The engineSee full engine specs
This 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine has plug-in hybrid tech, so it's teamed with a larger battery and electric motors to deliver 448bhp to all four wheels. That gives it rapid acceleration, with an official 0-60mph time of just 4.4sec. It can can cover a claimed 56 miles on battery power alone (although we’d take the official figure with a pinch of salt)
