The Volvo S60 is a handsome, comfortable and subtle alternative to conventional executive saloons from Audi, BMW and Mercedes.

Review Summary
The new small S60 has style, an innovative well-made interior, pioneering pedestrian-in-the-road sensing safety equipment and a new range of five-cylinder engines.

The Telegraph
Review Summary
For all the talk of a newfound sportiness, the S60 remains very ordinary to drive compared with Audi’s A3 saloon or BMW’s 3-series. Instead, the S60 is a safe and stylish choice, and if you choose the D4 diesel engine, it’s a quiet, powerful and fuel-efficient one, too.

Review Summary
The S60 is a good car in the right specification, but the DRIVe model lacks the sparkle of its mainstream S60 stablemates that keen drivers will expect.

A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.

Review Summary
The Volvo S60 is an appealing alternative to its German rivals, even if it's not as good to drive. It scores best for safety and comfort.

Review Summary
This is the worst Volvo I've driven in years, and the worst current-generation S60 ever, and I'm not going to recommend it to anyone unless something is done to make it less uncomfortable.
