Good start but could use a little help....

2013 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Been driving my S60 R-Design for just over a year.
Great styling differentiates this car from a standard A4 or 3-Series.
Motor is smooth and powerful with very little or no turbo lag.

Interior is clean and comes off like a German car with a little twist.
I actually use the on-dash dial pad often. It's not simply a gimmick.

All in all, its a nice upgrade from my G37x but leaves me wanting just a little more.
Maybe I'll consider the new Limited Edition R-Design if it isn't cost prohibitive.

Update: The breaks are still horrible. Couple of distinct rattles which are well hidden.
