Volvo S60

Mid-Size Sedan, Premium


 

2011 Volvo S60

The Volvo S60 kept Vincentric’s Best Value in America award in the family, moving last year’s winner, the Volvo S80, into second place in 2011. This one-two punch from Volvo showed that better-than-average maintenance and repair costs, strong fuel economy, and low insurance costs are a dynamic combination when searching for best value.  Like the Volvo S80 in 2010, the Volvo S60 is a first time winner in 2011, no small feat in this class of over 20 luxury sedans.
