2014 Volvo S60

The 2014 Volvo S60 offers safe, well-crafted design, and runs the gamut from comfortable and quiet to flamboyant and edgy. While the Volvo S60 may not be a good reflection of the brand s past, you might say that it s a much more exciting preview for a good-looking, brawny future lineup of cars. With that in mind, the S60 is all about design and safety, as well as performance that keeps up with at least a few of the Joneses.

Plus, it maintains the leading edge for safety that gave Volvo its reputation in the first place.

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. Inside, there s a blend of flamboyance and Scandinavian simplicity that s both smart and stylish. High-quality materials, pleasing textures and that floating center stack give the car a decidedly hip vibe over some of its more traditional competitors.

The exterior of the car has been updated for 2014 to include a slightly revised front bumper, new headlight design, and LED daytime running lights.

The 2014 Volvo S60 is just a bit smaller than most U.S.-market mid-size sedans, yet it s a five-seater with true space for four adults. Front seats aren t quite the Volvo perches we like from other larger models; they re a little bit shorter in the lower cushions. But back-seat accommodations are surprisingly good for adults, thanks to some smart contouring. Factor in the quiet cabin and good ride quality and you have a true luxury-car feel in all but the R-Design, which picks up more road harshness. 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 T6 R-Design throws that out in favor of a dedicated Sport suspension that s lowered and noticeably stiffer.

Performance-wise, the S60 has its sights set somewhere between the likes of the Buick Regal GS, the Audi A4, and the BMW 3-Series. Now in the S60 s third year, Volvo is rolling out yet more members of the S60 lineup; this time, all-wheel drive is offered in the base T5, making it available with any of the engines. Also new for 2013 is a retuned version of the base turbo five, with a higher compression ratio and peak turbo boost raised 15 percent.

Volvo rolled out an S60 R-Design in 2012 model aimed at those who might just take their Volvo on the track once in a while. It offered a long list of performance upgrades, most importantly chipping the T6 models 300-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine up to 325 hp. In both the S60 T6 and R-Design models, the engine is smooth, strong, and sweet-sounding, with an uninterrupted rush of power when you need it.

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 and it lacks full manual control and paddle shifters. It s also worth pointing out that while the S60 is a blast to drive in T6 or even R-Design forms, it just doesn t feel quite as sharp as focused enthusiast sedans like the Nissan G37 or BMW 3-Series.
