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.

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 B3 (P) is good but if you can opt for this 194bhp B4 (P), which is our pick of the range. It knocks a second off the B3’s 0-62mph time (8.0sec), it’s more energetic at motorway speeds and, having a bit more oomph suits a car designed to carry people plus luggage. It's also slightly more efficient than the B3 (P) because you have to work it less strenuously, so officially it still averages just over 40mpg.
