The 2015 Volvo S60 comes in a wide variety of configurations, all of them delivering unparalleled safety.
At the bottom, there's a sporting European sedan with good fuel economy that faces off against the Acura TLX; add $20K and you can have the T6 R Design model that Volvo wants to pit against the 333-hp Audi S4.
The S60 is fun to drive, and a good long-distance tourer, but it's not the same league--for performance or handling--as competitors like the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series, or the more luxurious and solid Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
The Infiniti Q70 (formerly Infiniti M range) is larger inside and out, and not as sporty, but its flashy shape and luxurious interior are at the opposite end of the scale from the Volvo.
One dark-horse contender might be the German-designed Buick Regal GS, perhaps not as striking in looks but a good performer that's comfortable up front--and price-competitive.
