TCC’s Bottom Line
Stunning performance is still the calling card for the 2011 BMW M3; the weight it's gained may just be a sign of its success. Volvo is no longer just for those who want to play it safe; the new S60 is a stylish and well-designed sport sedan that's very enjoyable to drive - even if it trades off a bit of edginess for comfort and refinement.
