The Parkers VerdictThe Parkers Verdict

The Volvo S60 is in a market place crowded with talented machinery and it does not quite have the driving aptitude to stand out, even if it is very safe.

While the S60 is good to drive in isolation, it is not a patch on the BMW 3 Series for driving fun and nor is it as comfortable as a Mercedes C-Class.

Still, the S60 goes round corners gamely and with good agility. It’s a shame, though, the steering doesn’t offer more feel and Volvo’s optional three settings for the steering feel simply detract from the driving experience.

So is it good enough to beat its rivals? Read the full Volvo S60 review to find out.
