2013 Volvo S60 Comfort & Quality

9.0
Comfort & Quality
The S60 name makes this sedan sound like it's somewhere in the middle or toward the upper end of the range, but in truth it's barely mid-size, and actually closer to compact luxury models like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class or Acura TSX. That said, it makes good use of the space and has plenty of passenger room.

The S60 is missing the longer (or extendable) thigh supports that some other Volvo models have, but otherwise the driving and riding experience in front is excellent. The back seat looks tighter from the outside than it actually is when you get in, thanks to good contouring for adults, and outboard positions that are 'scooped in' somewhat. Even though over six feet tall can sit back there, with enough legroom, and possibly enough headroom.

Trunk space, as hinted by the tall rear deck, is abundant. Rear seatbacks fold forward and are 40/60-split, with loading ease quite impressive.

Considering the compact footprint and stylish roofline of the 2013 S60, it's remarkably comfortable and space-efficient.

Inside, it's a European luxury-car experience. The S60 isn't perfectly quiet, but wind, tire, and road noise are well-controlled. Touring, Dynamic, and Four-C Active Chassis options provide a wide range of firmness, and the available Four-C Active Chassis suspension enables Comfort, Sport, and Advanced modes for increased driver control.
