Cool Wagon - 2015 Volvo V60
By jimbonada - November 25 - 11:50 pm
Picked up the 2015 V60 in October 2014 after turning in a 2012 T5 sedan. Major difference is handling. Steering is crisper and stays centered where as T5 tended to float. Also the engine is phenomenal. I'm getting 28 mpg mixed use vs 23 mpg in old T5 without a sacrifice in horsepower. What attracted me to this car is that it does not look like a wagon but more like a crossover without the height and extra cost. There is one caveat however. My car came with a start/stop feature. I've gotten used to it but for some they may not. It's the feeling of an engine stalling and starting up again. You can however manually shut it off. My wife hates it. I leave on just to annoy her. LOL!
2015.5 Volvo V60 wagon FWD - 2015 Volvo V60

Spreading the word about 2015.5 V60. I've owned Audi's, BMW's, VW's & other Volvos (last car was the XC70), & this car blows me away. Handling is perfect; fuel economy amazing; styling minimalistic but perfect. The technology features are simply amazing. I have a teen driver, so the safety features - warnings when you get too close to the car in front, lane departure warnings, blind spot, rear camera, etc. - are essential. I paid at least $12k more for comparable German cars, and didn't get anywhere near the value or features found in this car. Chose FWD because w/traction control, it's nearly as good as AWD. Space & storage also fine, even as compared to the XC70. Better than German.
Good as a sportswagon gets... - 2015 Volvo V60

If you want a wagon that goes fast, handles very well, and is still a great daily driver, it doesn't get any better than this. If you want to spend twice as much, you can get the rocket ship which is the E63 AMG wagon, but it is a much larger car. If you want the odd styling a Cadillac CTS-V, you'll get a car that's probably more fun and is certainly faster, but I didn't find it nearly as comfortable as the Volvo V60 R-Design. This car is the perfect 20-year sequel to the 1995 Volvo 850 T-5R less a bit of boot space. Unlike the T-5R, it rides comfortably (no crash-iness), has All-Wheel-Drive, and isn't just fast by 20-year-old standards.
21st Century Sportwagon - 2015 Volvo V60
By markyfish - November 10 - 2:33 pm
This car is fast, comfortable, beautifully designed, and luxurious. It is a thoroughly modern vehicle in every way and demonstrates how far Volvo has come. The new 2 litre engine is totally smooth, and the 8 speed auto always places you in a sweet spot for torque. The top notch electronics features illustrate that accidents will be preventable one day. It is the best value in premium wagons, and the design is pure and classic............
More of a hatchback than a wagon - 2015 Volvo V60
By threefingr - September 9 - 8:58 am
I've been driving my V60 with sports package for the last 3 months and have put 5000 miles on the car. The drive is nice, though there's a noticeable hesitation after stepping on the gas. Handling and ride are very good. It's much smaller than the boxy volvo wagons of old. The back hatch is adequate for groceries or a small dog (like my mini Aussie). But forget about bikes, even with the seats down. The legroom for backseat passengers is tiny. My pre-teen kids are ok but adults would be uncomfortable. The front seats on the other hand are exceptionally comfortable. The hi-tech & eco features are spotty, especially auto engine shutoff when stopped . MPG is well below EPA estimates.
9K miles in and loving it. Great car. - 2015 Volvo V60
By derickd81 - March 5 - 10:30 pm
Bought car in April, now has over 9K miles on it, including some long road trips. I have been able to hit all EPA mileage ratings, including highway. I have 30 mpg average over the last 6K miles. Car has been flawless, easy to use, drive, etc. I still catch myself staring at it, or pausing while sitting in it to take it all in. Went on a month long vacation with my wife. We fit everything we needed and our cat in the car with the seats down. Plenty of room. It's fast, quiet at highway speed, and the seats are wonderful. I've done four 12hr stints in the driver's seat at not been uncomfortable at all. This car is a gem, I think it should be on your test drive list, at the least.
Volvo Hit A Home Run Bringing the V 60 to the US - 2015 Volvo V60
By bbrigham - November 1 - 11:24 pm
What value for the money! I didn't have to pay big money for this ride. The car handles beautifully and is fun to drive. After having driven the XC 90 and V 70 AWD models for the past 10 + years --- I found the V 60 gives me the same satisfaction of ownership at a much lower price.
