2006 Volvo S60 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
I test drove a BWW, Acura and the S60. For the price, it was not even close. The S60's comfort level, performance and safety features were either comparable or superior to the BMW and Acura. I have a 2 yr. old, so I weighed safety pretty heavily in my buying decision. The S60 has more than enough power + I did not feel the "turbo lag". I found the turbo to be smooth and responsive.
Safety features, incredibly comfortable seats, smooth ride. A alot of fun to drive
More storage space up front, more leg room in the back.
