2017 Volvo S60 Walk Around


Sweeping curves blend with organic details and a wedge-like profile, resulting in a clean and classy appearance, devoid of clutter. Less flashy than some rivals, the S60 is plain and conservative.

Unquestionably, the S60 is a Swedish Volvo, even though the company is now Chinese-owned. Inscription models, with their longer wheelbase, approach elegant status. The taller S60 Cross Country sedan conveys a moderately rugged appearance, though it may not be as pleasing to the eye as a standard S60.

Interior

Comfortable cruising is a high point. The S60 comes with some of the best front seats you’re likely to find in any automobile, though abundant bolstering could make it snug for larger folks. For a compact sedan, the cabin is spacious, and affords excellent visibility.

Back-seat passengers aren’t quite as fortunate unless they’re in an Inscription model, which provides extra legroom. Still, even standard-length models won’t cramp six-footers.

Compared to more contemporary luxury sedans, the S60’s interior seems plain, far from fancy, though the black dashboard has a textured look. Angling in the driver’s direction, however, that dashboard has a businesslike aura, while the all-digital gauge cluster suggests greater modernity. Instruments are bright and easy to read.

Trunk space ranks as voluminous, evident from the sedan’s tall tail. Rear 60/40-split seatbacks fold forward and incorporate a pass-through for longer items.
