2012 Volvo S60 T5: The Uncommon Choice

September 09, 2011

volvo_s60_dealer.jpg I like driving our Volvo S60. I like the interior design, the supportive seats and the power from turbocharged inline-5. Plus, it's not a 3 Series/A4/C-Class/IS which, in Southern California at least, is a nice bonus. It seems like even Starbucks baristas drive BMWs these days. Cars off the beaten path deserve a little extra love as long as they're competitive.

I was driving around yesterday and even had a friend of mine wave to me as he was driving the other way. I guess I was pretty easy to spot seeing as how a pumpkin orange 2012 Volvo S60 with Jersey plates is a rare bird out here.
