Review

The Volvo V60 edges ahead of similarly-priced premium rivals thanks to its generally comfy ride, secure handling and great interior quality. And did we mention it’s blooming roomy? That's key to an estate's appeal and it's bigger on the inside than rivals such as the Audi A4 Avant. It's a great all-rounder.

get the best price

Over and above Momentum this adds full leather seat trim, an electrically adjustable driver's seat, a crystal gear knob, wood trim, keyless entry, a gesture-controlled tailgate and ambient interior lighting.

The 161bhp B3 (P) can hit 0-62mph in 9.1sec. That makes it lively if you're prepared to wind it up but it's also fairly flexible for everyday driving. It comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, as all V60s do. The engine's pretty smooth and officially averages just over 40mpg.
