The 2018 Volvo S60 is a pleasant car, but rivals and even the rest of Volvo’s lineup have left it in the dust.

Pros
Great safety scores
Broad lineup
Strong acceleration
Exceptionally comfortable seats
High-buck feel inside

Cons
Bland, dated styling
Old-school infotainment
Even at its best, not all that fun
Light on personality versus Volvo’s latest
