Good: The S60 is one of those rare Volvo models that seems to brood over firepower more than anything else. The T6 petrol, with its turbocharged 6-cylinder engine is really very quick.
Bad: The 6-speed automatic gearbox, though smooth, is a bit too relaxed and isn"t as responsive as some of the rival units.
Verdict: What sets the S60 apart is its styling, ride quality and safety package. It sure looks distinctive and will get you all the attention. The only chink in its armor is the slow-shifting auto box and the poor economy of the T6 petrol version.
