Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Volvo S60’s driving position is tough to fault, largely thanks to the comfortable and supportive seat that adjusts electrically and has adjustable lumbar support as standard.

You sit slightly higher up than in the BMW 3 Series and Alfa Romeo Giulia, the pedals line up neatly with the seat and there’s plenty of steering-wheel adjustment.

The display is crisp and clear, making it easy to read at a glance. The system is solely touchscreen and responds to most of your taps and flicks between menus reasonably quickly. Unfortunately, as there is no physical control to help you work the system, it can be quite distracting to use on the move. We much prefer the BMW 3 Series’s iDrive system because it has a rotary dial.

Surprisingly, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring is an additional cost option, and doesn’t come as standard with any trim level.

Quality

As you might expect with a Volvo, the S60’s interior is really classy, with loads of soft-touch plastics and leathers throughout. You’ll struggle to find hard, scratchy plastics anywhere, and fabric is used in the lower down areas where you’d find it in rival cars.
