The words stylish and practical aren't usually associated with Volvo's estate cars but with the v60 Volvo are hoping to change this. The exterior is certainly very pleasing on the eye with its sleek lines and bold looks. The interior is suitably stylish, with a superb feeling of quality and some clever Scandinavian design touches that make it stand out from the German competition. Surprisingly for a Volvo although there is plenty of space for occupants, however, cargo space is behind rivals. The V60 also delivers a great drive, thanks to its fine range of engines and smooth ride. Naturally as it's a Volvo, safety levels are extremely high with an abundance of airbags and safety devices throughout the car for added piece of mind. Reliability should also be very good.
