2012 Volvo S60 Long-Term Road Test

2012 Volvo S60: Low Expectations Exceeded. Or Something.

January 30, 2012


Going back and looking at our semi-recent posts on the S60, I've noticed how a few editors have noted that the car has grown on them. Basically, the more they drive it, the more they like it.

You can count me in that group, too. I can't really give you a definitive reason as to why we've reacted this way. Maybe it's because Volvo's been lacking a competitive entry-luxury sedan for so long that we've just been pleasantly surprised. Or maybe it's because the S60's character is very well suited for daily driving/commuting, which is what we mostly do with our long-term cars. Maybe it's both. But I will say the S60 is one of my top five favorite cars in the fleet right now.
