Best Car I've Owned
By Janez Narojnak on
2006 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Performance is astounding! 5.4 seconds to 60 with the stick, or 6.0 with the automatic. Great handling and tire grip. . 4-piston Brembo front and rear brakes stop on a dime. The BEST feature is the adjustable suspension, which has 3 positions: Comfort, Sport, amd Agreesive, which increase suspension stiffness and enhance handling further! And the agressive mode puts the transmission in the Sport mode, which inceases acceleration! Comfort, considering the 18" wheels, is very good, but don't expect the ride to be as soft as a Buick. Also, rear seat is a bit cramped. Just one more inch of leg room would help! Great reliabilty, great durability/build quality, and excellent value! Phenomenal car!
Invigorating 300-hp engine, adjustable suspension, relentless handling, tenacious tire grip, top-notch build quality, Brembo Brakes, Xenon Headlights, oh the list goes on and on!
More rear leg room, and PERHAPS a bit more ride comfort.
