Available all-wheel drive (AWD) is a strong selling point for the V60. Throw in stellar safety record Volvo’s, and you have a vehicle a family would be proud to pass on to future generations.

The profile is graceful and elegant, with a sloping roofline that the load does not extend, but without making it look like a sedan with a backpack. In fact, some of us prefer it over the stump strain appearance of the S60, and still others as its sleek, low-to-the-ground attitude to the XC60. While the standard wheel / tire package looks good, we ordered the Sport package, as its 19-inch aluminum alloys fill the wheel arches nicely.
