Expert Quotes:

While that's well above the outgoing car, there's gobs of additional power and kit, and crucially, it still seems like a very good value.
Autoblog

The 2011 Volvo S60 is also a relative bargain.
Automobile Magazine

Finding a place to put iPhones and snacks is no problem in the S60, as the front door bins, glovebox and cupholders are generously sized
Edmunds

Start ticking off options, and you can easily push the price of the car north of $45,000.
AutoWeek

Figure a well-equipped S60 will ring in somewhere in the low-$40,000 range, which is a lot for a Volvo but several grand less than a comparably kitted-out BMW 335i xDrive.
Car and Driver

From sound system upgrades to navigation, traffic information, and all of the climate control features you can imagine, the 2012 Volvo S60 offers a wide range of upgrades on top of a fairly comprehensive base specification.

Entry-level S60 T5 models include power accessories, cruise control, driver control interface, a trip computer, Bluetooth hands-free communication and Bluetooth audio streaming, HD Radio, USB/iPod/auxiliary input, CD/MP3 audio system, and more.

The T6 adds to the T5's equipment list with a standard integrated garage door opener, leather upholstery, and 18-inch alloy wheels among other times.

Moving up to the R Design gets all of the T6's features, except where replaced by unique R Design versions. Unique elements to the R Design include: interior and exterior styling, a sport steering wheel, diamond-cut dark gray alloy wheels, and of course the R Design performance upgrades.

Optional extras available on all S60s include headlight washers, rain-sensing wipers, power-retractable door mirrors with ground lighting, park-assist rear camera, navigation, and a premium Dolby Pro Logic surround sound system.

While the base spec of the S60 is feature-packed, the long list of technology and safety upgrades available can quickly add to the price, easily pushing loaded models above the $50,000 mark.

Conclusion

The 2012 Volvo S60 offers some of the best safety and entertainment technology in the class, but piling on the options can quickly raise the price tag.

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.
