2015 Volvo S60 T6 Drive-E FWD: Swedish delight

A trip back in time to my first moments at the wheel of a vehicle. A Volvo to be precise. 

I remember when I started driving, over a decade ago (I won’t reveal the exact number of years or I’ll sound like an old fart). My first few kilometers as a newly-licensed driver were at the wheel of a 1998 Volvo S70. The sedan was that sturdy, comfortable, and quiet ride that would take me to Costco every Saturday morning for my weekly driving practice, with my dad as the instructor.

So when I received the keys to the 2015 Volvo S60 T6 Drive-E, I expected memories of yesteryears to surface once more and to feel 16 again. Then I stepped on the gas pedal and the memories I had of Volvo made way to brand new ones. That car is everything but “quiet”.
