This is not Your Father's Volvo !
By Larry A on


2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


The first thing that caught my
attention was the fit, feel, and
comfort of the seats. The side
bolsters just beg you “drive the car”.
It’s got to be the sleeper car of the
decade. Was at 80 mph in second gear
before the end of the entrance ramp.
It’s the first time I ever had to slow
down to merge onto the I-state. Turbo
provides a solid kick in the pants with
very little lag. Makes driving FUN.
Blue gauges, aluminum accents, and blue
stitching are sharp. Salesman said it
would seem there was always someone's
bumper in your face and he was right.
This is not your father’s Volvo – it’s
my wife’s!

Best Features

300 hp; telling people who ask that the ‘R’ means “really goes”; the opportunity to provide evidence to unsuspecting BMW’s that it’s no fluke; some road noise is necessary and that’s all you hear – just what’s necessary.

Worst Features

LEDs susceptible to glare; personalization presets should activate at “unlock” to preclude seat repositioning after I open the door, especially when it’s raining.
