The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Volvo S60 isn’t a sport sedan, but it is a comfortable, safe, all-weather mid-size car with an eager powertrain. If you don’t mind buying a 2009 Saab 9-5 that looks almost exactly like the 1999 model, there’s still a lot of quirky appeal.
