Volvo S60 2014 competition

2014  Volvo S60’s backseat is a bit tight and sporting credentials aren’t quite on the same level as the BMW 3 Series or Cadillac ATS. However, 2014 Volvo S60 is top of comfort-tuned entry-level luxury sedans like the Acura TL, 2014 Audi A4 and 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Also, its price is often thousands less than the competition.

Volvo S60 2014 – driving impressions

The 2014 Volvo S60 is a comfortable, sophisticated and well-behaved luxury sedan. The T6 engines are smooth and powerful, and the all-wheel-drive system apportions power to individual wheels to maximize traction and grip through turns. Most buyers would likely find the acceleration, response and fuel economy of the T5 to be compelling, but the Volvo’s comfortable ride is its strong suit.
