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

This entry-level trim is the one we’d choose because it has plenty of kit. You get a 9.0in infotainment touchscreen with sat-nav, Bluetooth, a DAB radio and a 10-speaker stereo. On top of that, there's 18in alloy wheels, a 12.3in digital instrument display, adjustable lumbar support, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, a power-operated tailgate, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. Standard safety kit includes automatic emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, oncoming lane mitigation and lane-keep assist.

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.
