Best featureThe Volvo V60 is an estate family car, but it also has many advantages as a sporty model. The engine I have is a 2 l petrol with 203 HP and the top speed of 230 KM/H. Additionally, the car accelerates to 100 KM/H in about 8 seconds, which is very sporty in my opinion. However, it is a perfect blend of practicality and fun, since these sporty characteristics are combined with comfort and amazing fuel efficiency. On average it is at about 8.5 l/100km, while on the motorway it has been known to be as low as 6. This is probably so due to the amazing 6-speed automatic transmission, although the new model’s 8-speed is said to be even better. I’m seriously thinking of upgrading to the new V60. This one has served me really well and the next one is said to be a lot better. Speaking of its design, the V60 is very sleek and nice looking. I wouldn’t really call it aggressive, but it is also not boring in any way. It is a car which you can brag about and also drive to a business meeting. On the inside, it is of the highest quality as you would expect from a Volvo. The central console is very practical and easy to use, the design is minimalistic, materials are just amazing and seats are more than comfortable. I have had longer travels in the V60 and it was surprisingly comfy. The best quality, however, has to be safety. I often drive my family and just knowing that the V60 is packed with clever safety solutions is very reassuring. Just some of self-explanatory safety features are Pedestrian Detection and Full Auto Brake.
I would love to have a bit larger boot. It’s not tiny, but it could be better.
Also, steering is very light. Women usually love this, but I would prefer a bit more feel.
