Review

Picking a favourite in this class is a very tricky process because just about everything is well-accomplished. However, the Volvo V60 edges ahead of similarly-priced rivals thanks to its tidy handling and great build quality and comfortable ride. And did we mention it’s blooming roomy? The Volvo V60 is a great estate car

Trim: R DESIGN

This sporty trim is based on Momentum but adds part leather sports seats with lumbar support adjustment, a heated steering wheel with gloss black accents, sports pedals and gearknob, a rear armrest, an auto dimming rear view mirror, 18in alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension, twin exhaust pipes, front foglights and front parking sensors. Worth considering if you don't mind a firm ride in exchange for sportier looks.

Engine: 2.0 D3 [150]

This 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel takes a claimed 9.9sec to go from 0-62mph, which isn’t that quick and it’s barely more efficient on CO2 output or MPG compared with the more powerful D4, so we’d opt for that instead. A six-speed manual is standard with an eight-speed auto optional.
