2007 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Exceptional. Fun car but not an ostentatious sports car. Compared to Infiniti G35, Audi S4, and BMW 330. Surprising power. Tight handling with the advantage of variable All-Wheel Drive. No problems with the R in mountain snow. Get this w/ a manual transmission for maximum fun. Great finishing touches on interior, gauges and electronics. Hwy fuel economy better than 30 MPG. Overall, good value for performance.
Variable chassis (comfort, sport or advanced) makes this a car for both me and my wife. Comfortable and appropriately-sized cabin leaving room for others without making the car a boat.
Wide turning radius most noticeable at slow speeds (e.g. parking lots).
