Our S60 D4 has been loaded with so many extras it almost tops out at more than the S60 R-Design Polestar – the rather swift petrol version.
However, I would suggest the D4 will be more than enough for most people – especially as it’s not only rapid but frugal, returning 46mpg despite a heavy right foot.
I can’t say it out BMWs a 3 Series but this is a pretty decent effort from the Swedes. And it’s every inch as easy on the eye as the benchmark German saloon.
There’s not enough feel from the steering, or driver-focussed appeal but like Sepp Blatter, it’s a tough one to catch…
