The 2011 S60 is especially rakish and sporty-looking for a Volvo, but not especially daring in its class. The stunning interior, on the other hand is one of a kind.

Expert Quotes:

adheres to the 'four-door coupe' aesthetic
Motor Trend


The 2011 S60 looks like a Volvo, yet its more rakish and aggressive than anything that's ever before been in this Swedish brand's stable. The S60 is handsome, expressive, and organic all at once from the outside, with smooth contours and swooping lines matched up with a low, wedgy front and pert tail, and framed with large flashy alloy wheels.

Inside the S60 has has an ultra-cool floating center stack of controls that pushes the Swedish design ethos into a hipper direction. Textures and design themes inside are far from the ordinary for luxury sedans.

Instead of simply wrapping the interior in lots of leather and matte-metallic trims, as some automakers do, Volvo has harnessed the starkness and contrasts of Scandinavian design and produced a surprisingly warm, functional interior. It not only employs contrast in the way of two-tone for the instrument panel and upholstery, but also up close in the texture of materials; the texture of the material atop the dash, for instance, was modeled after rippled water.

Conclusion

The 2011 S60 is especially rakish and sporty-looking for a Volvo, but not especially daring in its class. The stunning interior, on the other hand is one of a kind.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
