The Globe's Top Drives for 2011
|| Read our review|
A gentleman driving a Volvo wagon slowed down while passing us on Rte. 95., then gave an enthusiastic Thumbs-up to the new S60. He was right. The styling is eye-catching all around, from the just-right curves to the LED tail lights and accent lighting. The S60 is loaded with latest-generation safety features, which alone make it worthy of this list.
However, the T6's turbocharged I-6 engine with 300 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque makes this a performer, especially when mated with the optional Four-C chassis settings that allow for comfort or sport settings. A near-luxury interior and all-wheel-drive wrap up the full package. BG
