The Volvo S60 is being labelled as the sexiest and naughtiest new mid-sizer on the market. But is it really? It has just picked up International Sedan of the Year Award, and its range spreads from a fuel-efficient D5 turbodiesel to a full-blown turbocharged all-wheel drive T6 petrol. It all sounds like the makings of an elegant, intelligent sedan.

Even though the Ford-Volvo marriage has been officially annulled, the Volvo S60 is based on Ford's EUCD platform (underpinning the current Ford Mondeo). On top of the already well-received Ford Mondeo base, Volvo has implemented a variety of new technologies and Norse finesse to the platform, including big leaps forward in pedestrian safety, a suave interior decor and splashes of contemporary yet cool design.

Our test car is the top of the range T6 with the R-Design package. The R-Design pack ($4200 option) includes a sharp new bodykit including a low chin spoiler on the front (so sharp it will scrub out on driveways if you're not careful), a piano black grille with an 'R-Design' badge, and a racy rear diffuser setup at the back. There's also a subtle boot lip spoiler and dark-accented 17-inch alloys to top it off. It looks great and reminds you - and onlookers - that this is not your average boring person's Volvo.

18-inch alloy wheels and heated front seats are now standard on the 2016 Volvo XC70 . The 300-hp turbo I-6 has been discontinued while the 3.2 AWD trim has been replaced by the T5 AWD variant.

Essentially a raised wagon, the 2016 Volvo XC70 is a two-row crossover available in front- and all-wheel-drive configurations. A replacement, rumored to be called the V90, will be revealed sometime in late 2015 and early 2016 alongside the successor to the S80 midsize luxury sedan, which is the car that the XC70 is based on.

Front drive XC70s are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 rated at 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque while all-wheel-drive-equipped variants utilize a 2.5-liter turbocharged I-5 with 250 hp and 266 lb-ft. An eight-speed automatic is the only gearbox available on front-drive XC70s while all-wheel-drive models are equipped with a six-speed unit. Fuel economy is class competitive, with front drive models achieving up to 23/31 mpg city/highway. Opting for the all-wheel-drive XC70 drops those numbers down to 19/26 mpg.

With help from parent company Geely, Volvo is ready to fight Mercedes-Benz , BMW , and Audi with a lineup of luxury vehicles that look spectacular and still offer the safety technology consumers expect of the brand. Volvo’s lineup not only includes great sedans and wagons, but also SUVs and the S60 and V60 performance cars.

Least Expensive : The Volvo S60 is the Swedish manufacturer’s entry-level luxury sports sedan. With all the safety and security Volvo is known for, the S60 starts under $35,000.

Sportiest : An upgraded suspension, forged wheels, a brilliant all-wheel drive system, and around 350 horsepower all provide the Volvo S60 Polestar and V60 Polestar with more sporting credentials than your average Volvo.
