After 6,500 miles, at an average 43.2mpg, the S60 has not developed a single squeak, rattle or niggle to disturb the impression that this is an immaculately engineered car. Were I to secure a promotion (or two … or three) my company car shortlist would only feature the BMW 330d, Audi A4 2.5 TDi, Mercedes-Benz C270 CDI and the Volvo S60, and on current experience the Volvo would clinch the deal. Rarely can winter driving have been so cosseting or comfortable than in a car designed to take on the bitterness of northern Sweden.
