Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, although SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, to help you pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive. Coming off a redesign just last year, the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to select from.
As has been the case for some time, you will get the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive with a four-cylinder engine or even a stronger V6, or you can get the miserly Volvo V60 2020 First Drive Hybrid. On the highway, the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive is comfortable and compliant. Volvo V60 2020 First Drive also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from over the way.
The Volvo V60 2020 First Drive can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content makes it supremely easy to drive. If you’re trying to find something with much more class and space than a small sedan, the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive might you need to be the sedan for you.
The Volvo V60 2020 First Drive is the bottom trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Volvo V60 2020 First Drive Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features on the upper trim levels can be included with the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL audio system coupled with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Volvo V60 2020 First Drive stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to create a lot of people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The Volvo V60 2020 First Drive features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.

It’s very easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
