Profile

Volvo's S60R has taken the technology route in an attempt to pry sales from German rivals Audi and BMW. The new saloon features a plethora of advanced systems from the standard VVT and 4WD to the advanced traction and stability control, emergency brake assist and speed sensitive steering. But the highlight is Volvo's innovative 'Four C' adaptive damping. The system uses a network of sensors and accelerometers to change suspension settings in a fraction of a second, while providing three switchable settings - Comfort, Sport and Advanced.

For all this technology, the S60R is a competent but not an exciting handler in the mode of say an M3. It is, of course, a Volvo, so it's well built, safe and surprisingly good looking.
