2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I drove and evaluated the new M3 and 535I compared with the Volvo S60R. The R has better lines and exterior design than the BMW and the standard power, although turbocharged, gives you the torque and power you need to satisfy even the most discerning motorhead, particularly with the standard 6- speed. Turbo lag is nearly non- existent and even when cruising along at 70-80mph+ in 6th gear, pressing the accelerator will push your head back into the seat. Volvo solid throughout, great interior (upgrade for Atacama leather is outrageously expensive - and it looks like a new baseball glove for $1,800). Incredible braking power.

Best Features

Ext. design; metalic paint, 18" R type wheels/brakes; 60/40 rear seat with both sides folding into cabin for additional room (w/ ski pass-through); auto up power windows; entire drivetrain including best AWD system I've driven yet; suspension mode feature (partic. adv. mode!).

Worst Features

Inc. ht. of grnd. effects (air dam);Inc. ht. of splr. on trunk to wash under it;Inc. the ht. of the strg. column or let me lower the seat more so my legs are not touching the wheel;prem. sound is lame;Nd. seat heat auto-off;Nd. compass on the RV mirror and put the O.S. temp up there.
