S60 T5 is great on highways
By volvo_md on


2004 Volvo S60 T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


We also considered competitors with
manual tranny: BMW 330, Acura TSX, Saab
9-3 vector, Lexus IS300. Quite happy
with s60t5's looks, acceleration,
handling and stability at high speeds,
and comfort. Main grouses: wide turning
radius; a little ponderous at low
speeds that affects driving in stop-and-
go traffic. If we had valued driving
dynamics above all else we would have
gone for the 330. Otherwise, T5 is a
good package of performance, handling,
safety and ride quality.

Best Features

Powerful turbo engine producing great acceleration for passing, exterior design, seat comfort, ride quality, stability at high speeds

Worst Features

Reduce turning radius; improve on somewhat heavy handling at low speed; manual gear shifting should be crisper (compare bmw 3-series)
