Although on the smaller side, the car has plenty of room to seat 4 adults comfortably. We have a newborn and the car seat's size requires the passenger seat to be moved up but still allows for plenty of leg room for the passenger.
The car is stylish and removed from the boxier look of previous Volvo models. The interior is what makes the car over the top. Seats are comfortable leather and easily adjustable. Plenty of headroom and I am over 6ft tall. The sound system is great and does not need an aftermarket upgrade. The dash display is a crisp gray background with digital white letters/numerals.
It handles well and has plenty of get up and go. I average over 24 mpg with most of my driving in town.
I've always liked the new Volvo style, but the new S60 in 2012 came out blazing. I had the premium design, all leather interior with, at the time, first auto-stop and accident prevention feature that was standard on all Volvos. That alone made the car 3X safer than other similar cars in the price range. The handling was always so smooth, love the turning radius, there wasn't any noise or crackling like in cheaper brands. I love that the interior surfaces were all soft, not cheap hard plastic, it makes a huge difference when you get into and out of the car banding, hands or feet by accident. It felt like the quality was all around me. I loved the connectivity to my iPhone, was always so seamless, and the trunk with folding seats was A+.
Pick this car!

I went for the Volvo for safety, fuel economy, and ease of driving. Excellent vehicle!
