Audi A4, Saab linear and aero, and BMW
325i models were the cars I was test
driving as a potential second car (have
4x4 for winter conditions and needed
cargo space). I drove '04 S60 turbo on a
lark, and was completely not expecting
the speed (have an old Volvo wagon turbo
also -should not have been TOO surprised
I guess) at such quiet acceleration. It
was a complete surprise to drive - for
under 30K US dollars, a true bargain.
Smooth, quiet acceleration / simplified
but functional very front cabin
architecture / very comfortable seating
/ safety rating not met by BMW or Saab.
Spartan cupholders in front - need an
update for the Starbucks crowd / cell
phone hook-up on steering wheel needed /
exterior color options are limited
