2020 Volvo S60 R-Design review

2019 Volvo S60 T5 review

Having already tested the T6 and T8 variants, we were keen to sample the entry level, price leading 2019 Volvo S60 in T5 guise. Trent headed to Sweden to put the big sedan through its paces in its natural environment.

2019 Volvo S60 review: First drive

The all-new Volvo S60 is an excellent thing. It's engaging to drive, offers a beautiful interior with plenty of room, but it's let down by firm suspension and fidgety brakes on the high-performance S60 T8 Twin Engine Polestar Engineered. But, keep in mind that Volvo will offer the S60 featuring air suspension with adaptive dampers, which will likely solve the ride issues...

Luxury Sedan Comparison Final Round : Mercedes-Benz C-Class v BMW 3 Series v Volvo S60

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class was Australia’s favourite luxury car in 2013. Perhaps a more impressive fact, however, is that Stuttgart’s mid-sized model outsold every mainstream medium car except the Camry and Mazda 6. It’s fair, then, to call this a significant volume car – as is its decades-old arch enemy, the BMW 3 Series, which matched that last feat...

Luxury Sedan Comparison Round Two : Infiniti Q50 v Lexus IS v Volvo S60

The Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class accounted for three-quarters of their segment’s sales in 2013, though that still meant one in four buyers looking for a mid-sized luxury car priced above $60,000 wanted something non-German. We had this factoid in mind when we decided to do something a bit different with our plan to compare the new-generation C-Class just released...

Audi S4 v Volvo S60 Polestar : Comparison Review

Performance sedans come in various degrees of hardcore, and the Audi S4 and Volvo S60 Polestar aim to play in a middle ground sweet spot. They are more premium than our home-grown FPV and HSV sports sedans, yet aren’t quite as focused as the German trio of BMW M3, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and Audi’s own RS5 Sportback...

Volvo S60 Owner Reviews

2011 Volvo S60 T5 review

It is totally a coincidence when buying this 2011 Volvo S60 T5 that I used to own an entry-level 2009 Volvo S40 diesel, which came with a leather but uncomfortable seat and Bluetooth only for phone calls. So, when I was looking for a larger car, Volvo wasn’t really on my option list...

2013 Volvo S60 T5 Luxury Review

Reliable, safe and good low down torque when pushed. Spacious and fuel economy on highway is 5.9 litres per 100 The interior quality is second to none no squeaks or rattles and servicing costs are very reasonable now having completed 35,000km of trouble free motoring. The noticeable thing is slight wind noise from the side mirrors at speed...

2015 Volvo S60 Polestar Review

Having owned a Mazda MPS 6 for 10 years, I reluctantly decided it was time for an upgrade. I say reluctantly because the MPS 6 was a brilliant car, a real drivers car with superb performance and quality. This is my first Volvo and so far i'm very impressed. The finish and build quality is excellent, as is the long list of standard features and inclusions...

2011 VOLVO S60 T4 Review

Ok. I have rated this car pretty high. But you need to understand I looked for a car to fit my purpose. This one came top. Price: For the base model (T4) which I bought, the value is mind boggling. About the only thing I really wanted that didn't come standard was the navigation. Compared to its competitors, it is unbelievable that this car comes in under $50k...
