Volvo S60 and V60

We said: “Is the Volvo S60/V60 a worthy opponent to those premium German heavyweights? It very much is, because it does everything so well.

“Add into that the quality and practicality of today’s Volvo interiors, the equipment that is supplied even on entry-level models, and of course a standard-fit safety package that rivals cannot match, and the Volvo S60/V60 has to be on anyone’s test-drive list.”

Thatcham said: “Every car Volvo has produced has achieved the maximum Euro NCAP star rating, and every car has featured at the top end of the Safety Award longlist since it began in 2015. The Volvo V60 / S60 is of course no different, with an Adult Occupant Protection score of 96%.”
