2006 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Excellent value for the price. I would have liked to purchase more of the extras, but wanted an S60R now! After the test drive I lost sleep waiting to purchase. I would have purchased two, but opted to purchase a Dodge Charger SRT-8 as our "bigger" car. The sixth gear is an asset. The fuel economy is nice. We traded in our 2004 S60 and feel that the R version is heads and shoulders above the competition and other S60 models. The gauges are gorgeous!! The overall interior room could be a bit bigger (this is my one and only negative point). But the size is just right for a small family. As you step into the car, an ambiance of complete safety surrounds you.

Best Features

The blue gauges, powerful 300hp 2.5L engine, distinctive R identifications, very functional interior, SAFETY, performance

Worst Features

Add another two inches to the wheelbase to provide a bit more room in the back. When a car is "Sirius Ready" it should be ready, one should not have to purchase a $475 unit to complete the deal.
