Is there a better sport sedan?
By jon heberling on
2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
With IPD ECU and exhaust 335 hp. The Brembo brakes should be on all volvos, they would be a great selling point. Where can one find more comfortable seats? Performance is outrageous. The grip in snow and ice is quite assuring. Not being a racing driver I cannot address subtelties in steering, but I doubt that a BMW M3 or a $50,000 Mercedes could compare to this one. An Audi S4 weighs 300# more, so could not handle as well. A truly wonderful car this Volvo. The atacama leather too is unmatched by the competition.
Lose more weight. Use simpler technology like cranks on windows and for seat adjustment. Also I question the use of huge tires where one must drive in wet conditions.
