I love the new volvo S60. They aren't your old run of the mill volvo's anymore. I was told my car looks like a spaceship, while I don't think this is true the styling is edgy and pushes the conservative volvo boundaries.
The performance of the vehicle is unbelievable. My previous cars are an S40 and an Impreza Sport. This car puts them to shame. The turbo is smooth but very quick (especially in sport mode). Not to mention it only takes 87 oct. gasoline. The seats are amazingly comfortable and the interior is quiet. All materials look and have a premium feel to them. My only beef with the car is the infotainment. There are lots of buttons and knobs, which aren't necessarily laid out intuitively. In my opinion it just seems sightly complicated, again, I have to stop and think sometimes when I want to carry out a stereo operation. Otherwise, the stereo is powerful and I liked the six months free sirius radio.
The value compared to other brands is exceptional. If you were to get the car with just the premium package, the car comes with way more options than its competitors at a much much cheaper price tag. Throw in the scheduled maintenance and your looking at a great bargain. I leased my car. I basically have every option minus the navigation and I am still paying about 80$ less than an entry level BMW 3 series.
Specifically for this car I cannot speak of the reliability because I've only had it for a month. I've owned a volvo in the past and never had anything wrong with it, and if I ever did it was replaced free of charge and I was given a loaner the entire time I was out of a car.
I am very happy with my purchase. I would highly recommend the vehicle to anyone who is in the market for an entry sized luxury sedan. It's a great bargain and is a quality and AMAZINGLY SAFE vehicle(if you haven't seen the new IIHS small overlap test, google it, you'll be extremely surprised by the results).
