Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The Volvo V60 has a generous amount of front head and leg room, but that's reduced significantly if you opt for the range-topping Ultimate trim, because it comes with a standard-fit panoramic roof. More positively, the interior is good and wide, so you can get your elbows out without irking your passenger.
Rear space is a strength. Again, head room is fine (panoramic roof aside) and the rear leg room is much better than in the Audi A4 Avant and Mercedes C-Class Estate. There are roomier estate cars of course, but only if you're prepared to lose the premium badge and buy the Skoda Superb Estate or spend more on the bigger Volvo V90.
