The beefier sedan now smashes the century sprint in just 6.3 seconds. A whopping two seconds quicker than the older car it replaces. The improvement means the new car is even quicker to 100kmh than the much celebrated Volkswagen Golf GTI!

Quick as the new car is, it doesn’t quite match up in the handling department. Steering doesn’t feel quite as quick when stringing a series of bends together. Steering weigh though can be altered but it continues to feel wooden in our hands without much news on what the front wheels are up to. Due to the design of the steering knuckle, most Volvos suffer from a larger turning circle and the S60 is no different.

Floor the throttle and the car takes off with little hesitation. The new 8-speed automatic works smoothly and engages well. We’ve been lamenting the absence of paddle shifters on Volvos for years and finally granted our wish. Upshifts were fine but downshifts were a tad hesitant. The tactile feel of the paddles themselves could be improved as well given their plasticky feel.

 That being said, the car was pliant and comfortable across most surfaces. Although not quite well-endowed in the handling department, the car makes a comfortable cruiser for long journeys. The cabin feels well insulated from road noise.

For something this sprightly, the Volvo is surprisingly frugal. The manufacturer claims a fuel consumption figure of just 16km/L. The emissions stand at just 139g/km too making it eligible for a $10,000 rebate.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
