Volvo S60 D5 SE - 6,333 miles



SPENDING so much time behind the wheel of various cars gives a Fleet News tester plenty of time for reflection on the merits or otherwise of particular models.

On climbing aboard a Ford Transit the other week I was pleased to find it had built-in to the dash a mobile phone holder and it started me wondering why so few cars boast such a facility.

Time after time I take the keys to a new car and find myself looking in vain for a suitable cubby hole in which to put my trusty Nokia.

However, with the Volvo S60, I have solved this problem. The ping-out coffee cup holder on the dash provides just the right amount of room for a phone, while the gaps in the side allow for the charging wire to feed through to the cigarette lighter.

Meanwhile, the heated seats are proving a great asset, especially to my girlfriend, who refuses to turn hers off, even though I swear I can smell burning after a few miles!

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
