2012 Volvo S60 T5: Put Away Childish Things
November 02, 2011
Last night was my first time driving our 2012 Volvo S60 T5, and I instantly liked it. It's hard for me to isolate any one thing that makes me feel that this is a car I'd buy. It's a combination of driveability, ergonomics and intuitive controls (although I'm a little worried by Brent's observation that the more you use the interface, the more annoying it is). Our review says the car has "cosseting" front seats, and that's no lie.
Overall, this seems like a car for a grown up: It doesn't need to shout or use gimmickry to win your admiration. Its understated elegance and performance do the job.
What are the cars that you love now, but would never have appealed to you when you were a driving newbie?
