Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Other than the shuffling of some minor trim items, the 2018 Volvo S60 carries over unchanged.

PROS
Good balance between a comfortable ride quality and sporty handling
Excellent safety scores and available advanced safety features
Available extended-wheelbase model offers extra legroom

CONS
Fuel economy for high-performance engine might not live up to expectations
Standard-wheelbase sedan has less rear legroom than competitors

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
