Good mpg but less than book on mixed roads, light body helps. Really sticks to road with handling package. Speculation is that it may wind up here someday, perhaps in a slightly altered form. One caveat - don't buy this car if you plan on regularly having adults ride in the back seat - leg room is awful. Touring, Dynamic, and Four-C Active Chassis options provide a wide range of firmness, and the available Four-C Active Chassis suspension enables Comfort, Sport, and Advanced modes for increased driver control.
Unfortunately, the V60 will also feature Volvo's unintuitive touch-screen infotainment setup, which our testers found frustrating to use. Volvo's number for this recall is R89712. What the owner should do? Performance of the 6 Turbo is awesome and it howls like the old Porsche 6 cylinder turbos - a great engine and they don't make them anymore so the value of this should hold up better than the same year 5's. The value of this car is amazing. All-wheel-drive models typically come in a bit lower.
If the wrong amount of fuel is being injected into the combustion chamber, or being injected at the wrong time, the engine will not start. I could go on extolling the virtues of this car but, if you are in the market for a large executive estate, do take a test drive before making a decision. Note: This recall is an expansion of recall 16V-918. On a long motorway run, you're basically driving a diesel Volvo with a bit of a weight problem. The interior is logically ergonomic and well appointed. I find the ride gratingly harsh over bumps, the turning circle is too wide, the gear lever is set too far back and fuel economy dips considerably from the advertised figures.
Inside, it's a European luxury-car experience. The Volvo S60 has sharp handling, a sleek design, and advanced features. In addition to all the expected safety features--such as front, side, and side-curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes; and stability and traction control--what sets the S60 apart is its safety technology. My Volvo S60 is a very strong car that provides a very comfortable ride in the city or highway. In electric-only mode the plug-in station wagon can cover up to 31 miles, but that's likely an optimistic number given a battery capacity of only 11. The V60 plug-in hits up to 78 mph on electric-only power, but is rather frisky in hybrid mode. The 4C dynamic chassis system in the T6 makes it the pick of the bunch for combining performance and comfort; T6 models get driver-selectable steering feel, too.
The 0 to 60 mph dash can be accomplished in 5. Modern Scandinavian minimalism marks the interior, with brushed metallic trim—wood is optional—adorning our car. I never thought I would be stating that I purchased a Volvo. Check the battery and the terminal cable connections. The T6 offers all-wheel drive, plus a 316-hp four-cylinder engine that is both turbocharged and supercharged.
Even the standard nonsports seats are very comfortable, although the old-fashioned manual knob for lumbar adjustment is awkward. Just remember: a vehicle will always require air, fuel, and the ignition to operate. Volvo's Swedish design ethos really shows inside, where the brand has taken textured surfaces and contrasting hues to a new level. Driven volvo cars for 25 years. The Commission does not take any responsibility for the accuracy of the information provided. Like the S60, the V60 feels enjoyable to drive, with well-weighted and responsive steering.
The only disappointment here is the six-speed automatic transmission, which doesn't always respond as quickly as you might hope for a sport sedan. There's also the option of front- or all-wheel drive for those in need of an all-weather sedan. With large wheels and a wedge-shaped nose-to-tail design with swooping lines in the middle, the S60 is more noticeable on the road than any Volvo to come before it. Ok, so it's a performance machine, but how do the fuel economy figures look? Adults fit in the tight rear seat. Volvo's number for this recall is R89708.
It feels even stronger than its numbers might suggest, and while it's disappointing that there's no manual gearbox available the six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive pair for easy driving, fast acceleration, confident traction and great all-weather capability. If you want a big, luxurious estate, you certainly don't need one of the Germans. All three cars are sized more for small families or couples hauling around outdoorsy gear, rather than being sedan-based moving vans. This wagon version of the S60 has fairly agile handling, but the ride is overly firm. There is not enough places to put cables, sat nav gear, you have a floating console which takes up space and leaves dead space behind. I love my Volvo and hope to keep it many years to come! Everything about this car is just precisely perfect. That S60, which was a.
So, here we turn to an overseas review of the updated 2014 V60 Plug-In Hybrid for a review of the vehicle that might someday show up on the lot of your nearest Volvo dealer. Bought as I thought it would be a good engine and it is, but the interior is for sales people on the road, the cabin for the driver isn't thought out well. Corner Traction Control directs torque across the car to enhance grip in aggressive maneuvers; a radar-based Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake can identify and brake for pedestrians or other objects—like cyclists—in the road if the driver doesn't give the system indication they're trying to avoid it. Yet Volvo is still not a go-to brand or even top-of-mind when people shop in the luxury class. The T6 R-Design throws that out in favor of a dedicated Sport suspension that's lowered and noticeably stiffer. Also in the delivery of the car she was very patient with me in explaining the new features that I had not had on my previous Volvos.
