Volvo S60 T4 1.6 Review
Safe but sexy

Introduction

When it was first launched, the automotive industry was impressed with the new steps that Volvo has taken to attract a younger group of drivers. It started first with the XC60 that was much different from the slightly boxy XC90.

Then we got a glimpse of the current S60 when the C70 was launched. When the S60 was launched, it was the first time anyone ever used ‘sexy’ and Volvo in the same sentence. The design that was penned by Steve Mattin embodied soulful character and emotion in the new sedan. A design that was both dynamic and elegant at the same time.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
