Volvo's mid size saloon. Sober and quiet - handling is not up to the class best but the interior is second to none. Diesels are fast and frugal, petrols smooth and T5's very fast.
Handling and ride not up to class best but the S60 is very comfortable and stable. Excellent seats and interior ergonomics. Usually very well equipped.
2.0T is the most popular model. They tend to be about £500.00 cheaper on average than the 2.4 Diesels but usually have a mileage some 20,000 less. 2.5 petrol S60s are a real bargain.
If you intend to sell the car on again relatively quickly then the 2.4 diesel auto is the obvious choice as it will hold on to its value. If the car is to be retained for the long term the petrol models make the most sense. Particularly the 2.5 SE.
Volvos lose value far more quickly than the premium German competition. Expect to pay as little as £3500 for an early 2.0T model. Prices range up to £12,500 for a fully loaded, 3 year old 2.4 Geartronic auto.
The best time to buy is at four to five years old and with an average mileage of 60,000 miles for a diesel or 45,000 miles for a petrol.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Volvo S60 you would aim to buy a 6 year old and sell it before it is 7 years old.
Diesel Volvo S60 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Volvo S60 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Volvo S60 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
