Volvo has always prioritized comfort and safety over fun, but the latest generation of the S60 has proven itself to be both comfortable and enjoyable to drive. It has a fair amount of power on tap, so there really is no reason that it shouldn’t be able to keep up with the likes of the Audi S4, especially if you opt for the electrified Polestar Engineered trim.

Naturally, comfort is still a primary concern, and the well-cushioned seats complement the suspension perfectly to absorb most bumps in the road with ease. In fact, it’s this supreme level of comfort that disguises the Volvo’s ability to have fun. You may not even realize how fast you are going when you swing into a corner, and the bolstered sport seats on the R-Design and Polestar models do an even better job of keeping you firmly in your seat.

Unfortunately, there is little-to-no feedback from the electrically assisted steering, but responses are quick and accurate. The wheel also gains a bit of heft as you speed along, ensuring that you are able to maneuver well without oversteering. Setting the drive mode to Dynamic helps a lot in this regard, as Eco and Comfort lean more into the traditional strengths of the brand.

While it may be true that there are more athletic rivals out there, the Volvo S60 isn’t ready to throw in the towel. In fact, it has come a long way to stand on almost equal ground with its more famed competitors from Germany. However, it isn’t yet at the level of performance-oriented rivals like the BMW M Performance or Mercedes-AMG models. Our faith has been renewed, though, and we are excited to see what Volvo has in store for us moving forward.
