Taller occupants may find the seat bottom cushions a bit short on thigh support, but the front-seat experience is otherwise roomy and relaxed, with comfortable seats. The outboard rear-seat positions are able to fit taller passengers than they'd otherwise be able to, thanks to Volvo's decision to place the seats lower and recess them somewhat into the seatback. The resulting additional leg room alows even those over six feet in height to sit comfortably.
The high rear deck isn't just for sporty, wedge-shaped design; it also makes the trunk larger, and with its large opening and 40/60 split-folding rear seats, the S60 can hold a surprising amount of cargo.
Wind, tire, and road noise are well-controlled, and the ride quality is European: firm, but smooth. Three different suspension options offer some variability in ride, with Touring, Dynamic, and Four-C Active Chassis options. The Dynamic suspension is standard, with Touring offered as a no-cost, more comfortable option. The upgrade to Four-C Active Chassis suspension enables Comfort, Sport, and Advanced modes for increased driver control.
