There is perhaps no quality more necessary and desired within the realm of automobiles than reliability.
Cars are an inherently expensive piece of machinery. Whether it is to make, buy or maintain, there is always a very large barrier of entry when it comes to the amount of dollars needed. That's why durability and reliability are among the most sought-after qualities for any consumer vehicle. As such, is there any car manufacturer out there with a better track record of producing durable and reliable cars better than Volvo.
The answer is: No. Probably not.
Oh sure, everyone likes to point to Japanese manufacturers such as Honda or Toyota. And they're not wrong. Toyotas and Hondas are excellent cars, engineered with an enviable eye for efficiency and durability. They hold up that standard well. And yet even Volvos manage to outlast those vehicles. Maybe it's just something about the air in Sweden. Or in the water. Or in the meatballs. Whatever it is, Volvo has it and that attention to detail is what has kept Volvos cars running for decades.
That sort of pride in engineering is certainly present within the Volvo S60, the latest iteration of Volvo's most popular sedan to roll off the line.
Of course, durability and reliability don't mean you can't also drive with style and power, the latter of which is certain present in the new Volvo S60. The Volvo S60 T5 Drive-E features a turbocharger and direct-injection. The T6 Drive-E employs both a turbocharger and a supercharger for the 2.0L engine for increased engine output. And inside the passenger cabin, Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed. This is reflected inside by the attention to detail, authentic materials such as wood and leather, and the easy to use controls.
So if you're looking for the ultimate in reliable cars that also look good and drive well, look no further than the Volvo S60.
