I have to say Volvo has been a bit behind with regard to their interior space. This car now has similar rear space to the Audi A4/BMW 3 series although it seems like it is also the same as the S80 back seat space. Guess that will have to do until they come out with the S90. The car is now a competitor for the other luxury compacts. I hope they make the move to keep this "stretched" car as the standard S60 going forward and do away with the "standard" version once they launch the S90 to keep it going until the replacement happens in 2018 or whenever they actually get a new SPA s60 on the market.
