2011 Volvo S60 Mark

Volvo is no longer just for those who want to play it safe; the new S60 is a stylish and well-designed sport sedan that's very enjoyable to drive -- even if it trades off a bit of edginess for comfort and refinement.

Styling: 8 out of 10
The 2011 S60 is especially rakish and sporty-looking for a Volvo, but not especially daring in its class. The stunning interior, on the other hand is one of a kind. See details and best of the Web.

Performance: 8 out of 10
With 300 horsepower and all-wheel drive, the 2011 Volvo S60 has serious sport-sedan chops. Softened powertrain response and the lack of (expected in this class) paddle-shifters are the only letdowns. See details and best of the Web.

Quality: 9 out of 10
Considering its compactness, the 2011 Volvo S60 is surprisingly spacious inside, with an adult-sized backseat, and it doesn't sacrifice any comfort for its sporty driving response. See details and best of the Web.

Safety: 9 out of 10
The 2011 S60 offers more safety features than any other car in its class, but it's a little disappointing that, from a brand built on safety, not all of them are standard. See details and best of the Web.

You can get some of the best entertainment and tech features in this class in the 2011 Volvo S60; add more than a few, though, and the price can hit the $50k mark. See details and best of the Web

Green: 6 out of 10
The 2011 Volvo S60 is quite fuel-efficient for a 300-hp sport sedan, but against other luxury vehicles its size it's unremarkable.
