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


After a long research period and a slew of test drives (shucks) I finally selected the S60 R. My selection criteria were: 300 hp, AWD, and convertible; and I looked at GS300 AWD, G35 AWD, Z Roadster, M3, 330 xi, C55 AMG, SLK 350, WRX STi, and S4. None of the cars match all three criteria, but the S60 R did the best at the most affordable price. I also like the fact you don't see them everywhere like you would with a BMW. And aside from a few small "R"s there is nothing that readily identifies this Volvo as the hot rod version. The S60 R is the atheltic WRX STi that has grown up and wearing a suit and tie.

Best Features

300 hp / 295 ft-lb, selectable, suspension, comfortable seats, beautiful interior, handsome exterior

Worst Features

Turn radius of a cow. One button for lock/unlock instead of a rocker button.
