S60 R Review
By drapolas on
2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
I was looking for a performance sedan
for quite some time, and decided to
test drive the S60 R just as a joke.
After driving it, and learning more
about the amazing technology features
on board, I couldn't stop talking
about it. I usually prefer German and
Japanese cars, and I test drove the
BMW 330 xi, the Audi A4 3.0, the new
S4, and the infiniti G35 coupe. It
took me 6 months to finally convince
myself that the S60 R was just a
better overall package of performance
and practicality. It just provide the
best of all comfort, performance, fun
with the best seats in the automotive
industry. The engine is a marvel
particularly with the 6 Speed Manual.
The 4C adaptive suspension is really
effective, and enhances the dynamics,
and handling of the car quite well. I
really like the Navigation system,
which provides an easy to use
interface, and detailed directions.
Not to mention the superb Stereo
system with the in-dash CD changer.
I feel that it has a rather wide
turning radius (42.7 ft) which makes
it a little harder to maneuver in
tight areas. Otherwise it is just an
amazing performance machine.
