2012 Volvo S60 Styling

8.0
On Styling

Rakish, aggressive, yet still definitely a Volvo, the 2012 S60 is the hottest-looking car Volvo's ever offered. Expressive, organic details make for a handsome sedan, matching smooth contours and sweeping lines with wedgy front and rear proportions riding on large, flashy alloy wheels.

The S60 R Design model is even more aggressive, with a rear diffuser, sport tailpipes, a spoiler, and other R Design elements marking it out as unique.

Stylish, aggressive, and modern, the 2012 Volvo S60 is handsome, but not the most daring sport sedan option available.

The interior of the S60 is a modern take on Volvo's Swedish design ethos, with a captivating floating center stack, highly textured surfaces, and uniquely accented theme details.

Eschewing the abundant leather and matte metallic trims of rival brands, Volvo has tapped into a stark, simple layout that's nonetheless warm and inviting while remaining functional. Two-tone elements can be found on the upholstery, instrument panel, and material textures. Organic themes again are visible, with the dash material modeled after rippling water.

The R Design gets its own theme, with a unique steering wheel, upholstery, and other trim items adding to the more track-oriented look.
