David Thomas David Thomas 8.6 out of 10 2013 Volvo S60 Sedan

The 2013 Volvo S60 sedan is an understandable top seller for Volvo thanks to stylish looks, a contemporary interior and a price that takes some of the sting out of its monthly payment.

Volvo’s S60 T6 turned the brand’s reputation on its ear, and the R-Design iteration is a mightier and meaner looking ride.

Staff Review Edmunds.com 7.8 out of 10 2012 Volvo S60 Sedan

The 2012 Volvo S60 is a well-balanced and stylish luxury sedan. It’s a solid alternative to otherwise ubiquitous German luxury sedans.

Take any car at all over the brilliant roads that we drove in the great American West, and, unless you’re numb to fun altogether, you’ll have a great time. Do so in a car as good looking, comfortable, and satisfying to drive as the S60 T5 AWD, and you’re likely to remember it for life.

The 2012 Volvo S60 sedan is probably the best-looking car ever penned by Volvo. It’s an absolute delight on roads where you can come close to exploiting its potential without going to jail, a hospital, or both.

The Volvo S60 hits the mark where it aims. Its styling is beautiful, its leather and aluminum interior satisfying, and its function nearly flawless. Great power and cornering with all-wheel drive, with unmatched safety

Staff Review MotorWeek 7.2 out of 10 2012 Volvo S60 Sedan

While the 2012 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design doesn’t challenge the best of its German rivals in all-out performance, it is deceptively fast, handsome, and overall a very capable and extremely comfortable sport sedan.

While competing in a small segment, the wide variety of options available for the S60, plus its solid luxury drive, powerful engine and handsome styling, make worth a serious look to a far wider group of customers.

The 2012 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design was a blast to drive, and it debunked my previous notions about Volvos being simply practical. And it’s still got the cutting-edge safety features that put any driver’s mind at ease.

The S60 R-Design is a well-executed, sporty addition to the Volvo lineup, at a price that undercuts comparably powered BMW 335s and Audi A4s.

Think of the 2012 Volvo S60 R-Design as a high performance sports sedan for the more rational, practical person. Starting at a little over $43k, it’s also quite rational in terms of price.

The competent suspension, responsive handling and good engine performance is only half the story. The 2013 Volvo S60 T5 AWD is a handsome and daresay charming alternative to upscale import and domestic compact sedans.
