What we dislike:
cons

cons
Pedestrian Detection an option

Rear passengers have more legroom than before while headroom is pretty good considering the sloping roofline. There is some wheel arch intrusion on the front passenger foot well though; hopefully this doesn't translate to off set pedals in the right hand drive cars that we'll get.

The S60's interior not only look good but offers a high level of perceived luxury and build quality that matches the German models as well.

It took ten years for Volvo to give us the second generation S60 and judging from the drive in Portugal, the new model has been thoroughly developed to compete with the Germans - it's certainly a giant leap over the first S60.
