Better car than I thought it would be, quality of construction. No need to slam doors to close them, just nudge them to close and its done. Much faster than I thought it would be, once turbo kicks in, its about as fast I want to accelerate so merging onto the interstate is easily done. Car is quiet and stable at speed so you have to watch the speedometer. The car can creep up to 90+ without any really sense the car is going faster except you realize you are passing everyone else. Just FYI, top speed I've read is limited by the computer at 138 MPH. The S60 handles well, is comfortable and has a better sound system than I've ever had in my house.
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+.
The comfort and safety of this sedan are not surprising, being a Volvo and all. However I was shocked with how good the stereo system is! Seriously though this is a great car. Very, very comfortable. Rides super smoothly but has the power to make driving fun. The AWD system is rock solid - paired with snow tires I had no problems in the mountains this winter.
