Having abandoned leasing I had done for many years and retiring, I decided to buy. Having looked at the Audi, BMW, and Volvo reviews for a fast SUV, I tried and then bought a Xc60.
It is the best car I have driven in 54 years.
Second was an Audi S4 I had
many years ago.
The Volvo handles almost as well-the Audi was
shorter and and lower,
a sports car in disguise.
But the Volvo handles so well in much greater
comfort (Is this a function of age?), and elegance and relative silence that I cannot imagine a better bargain. It comes near enough to the Audi in turning corners that I was amazed, given its weight and height. The interior defines simple elegance. Perfect for over 40s.
Pickup, speed, comfort, and elegance!!
The one thing I do seriously miss is a 5 CD changer. MP3 is degraded sound, especially for those who appreciate great music. And, the better sound system comes as part of a larger package of unrelated and unwonted items!!
