2015 Volvo S60 D4 Excel 2.0 turbo diesel from South Africa


Swedish luxury at its best


The electric motor of the folding mirror on the driver's side malfunctioned. Repaired under warranty.

General Comments:

A good solid car and a pleasure to drive. Overtaking is a breeze and more than enough power. Still turns heads wherever I go.

The low profile rims are not the best idea. It's prone to be damaged by potholes and curb stones. Only a few mag repair shops can repair the diamond cut rims the Volvo is equipped with.

The car might also be a bit too low for people with mobility issues, but the XC60 is the perfect alternative if this is an issue.

Overall I love driving this car and it's very comforting to know it's one of the safest cars in production.

Biggest drawback is that I haven't experienced any joy with the dealers - have to watch over their shoulders if the car is booked into the workshop.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
