This is my second Volvo, going from a
2000 S70 to a 2004 S60 2.5T. The turbo
makes this a fast, fun to drive, sporty
car. The premium and sport packages
provide a high-end feel and a solid
drive. It's admittedly not as roomy or
comfortable as the S70, but the ride is
substantially improved. The stereo is
also excellent. While it's probably
not the fastest car on the road (I test
drove an Infiniti G35 that was superior
in speed and handling), it's fast
enough and has enough of a luxury feel
to rate the car highly.
The interior overall is not as roomy or
comfortable as older model Volvos.
Even though they're trying to bridge
the gap between performance and
comfort, I think they need to boost the
comfort level a bit for your average
