How to pair intcrown s601

Tried the S60.

I don't know if anyone is interested, but I have test-driven an S60 and don't want to withhold my impressions from interested readers. First of all, my motivation and initial situation: I have been driving a BMW E90 320d since 2005, which will be replaced in the near future (or not). This means that the yardstick is also clear. Alternatively, others are buzzing through my head: A4, E90 FL, Lexus IS, C Benz.

Optical impressions: I personally like it. From the side, as with almost all front-wheel drive vehicles, the nose is a bit dominant but not really annoying. Inside I find it very beautiful overall. The red knob in the middle in front of the windshield is a bit annoying, the round instruments look terribly cheap in the basic version, ok in the top version. The center console is really something. Overall, I found the dashboard a little too far away from the driver, which affects readability a little, and you (I) have to lean forward a little to operate the handbrake. Overall, you sit higher than in the Bimmer, which makes it easier to get in and out.

Driving: The moose basically has a completely different character than the Bavarian. In short: less sporty. The BMW is better suited to sharpening corners, so to speak, which can also be annoying, depending on the mood, the S60 looks much quieter, maybe less funny. I found the chassis with the 4C technology great, so you can adjust the characteristics a little in the direction of the threesome without completely achieving its light footedness. I also liked the engine (D3). A little more cultivated than that of the BMW or maybe just better insulated. Attracts from low tours like a buffalo but is not that easy to turn. What I liked a lot is the roaring sound when you turn it up. Timing belts are less fine. The circuit is IMHO ok.

Costs: Significant differences come to light when you want to claim the numerous goodies. If I equip one of the two Bavarians or a Swabian similarly, the difference will screw up to several thousand euro, as we know. The resale issue probably speaks against the Chinese.

Sound: A high-quality audio system is very important to me. I only briefly tested the top version in the Volvo, but it made a very promising impression.

Image: Could hardly be more different: BMW rather chubby, Volvo cool.

Conclusion: I think the new S60 is definitely an alternative to the well-known premium products. For individualists.

I would appreciate any input in the decision-making process.

There is behind it;)

Today I had a brand new S60 as a replacement vehicle. Because my medium-sized moose was for the scheduled health check.

I was able to test the jump-in field for around 70 km. Subjective conclusion. Exterior design is great. One of the most beautiful cars to hit the market in recent years. Inside, unfortunately, design triumphed over ergonomics. Very good workmanship, great seating position and again a bit quieter than the previous models.

The pure step backwards: the new navigation system. Fiddly, illogical to use and the enter button in the center console is an impertinence. Already at km-stand 230 total crash of the navigation software. Allegedly, the headquarters should have already ordered an update for the first S60 children. Download time: 45 minutes How proud I am of the retractable navigation system in the XC70 including steering wheel controls. All of this has rationalized the savings frenzy with the S60. There is no added value with roads from the North Cape to Anatolia. The result: subjectively interchangeable all-world technology as far as the navigation system is concerned. The display cave is reminiscent of old Opel traditions. Since VOLVO engineers urgently have to sit down with designers.

In addition, the buttons on the center console are much too small. This makes the submenus even more a safety problem in flowing traffic. City Safe is a must with this design.

Outwardly a great car with new, slightly sporty VOLVO driving behavior. The operation - actually an old VOLVO virtue - anything but promising. I hope that this is not the future for the entire VOLVO family, otherwise, as a frequent driver, a brand change is imminent for me in the medium term. Too bad.
