Our time behind the wheel of the Volvo S60 was thrilling with more ups than downs.
Nawaf Rahman

Driven by design, yet underpinned by the brand’s age-old core value of safety, Volvo’s renaissance – which is still in full swing – is no new news. The Swedish manufacturer has been quietly reestablishing itself.

Which brings us to the S60 T8 R-Design. This latest offering marks the next phase for Volvo that started with the award-winning new-generation XC90. S60 aims in life is to take all of that goodness and squeeze it into a stylish, classy sedan package that could hold its head up high in company like the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. First impression: the S60 knows how to make an entrance and wears the Volvo design language exceptionally well. The model receives a visual freshening by way of the aggressive R-Design front bumper with a gaping lower intake that matches with the clean, contemporary line and swoopy roofline. It is no exaggeration to say that it stands out from every angle and looks particularly great upfront with its imposing grille and dynamic and futuristic “Thor’s hammer” headlights.
