Volvo V60 D2 R-Design
£299 per month with a £6,771 deposit (6.9 per cent APR)
Featuring eye-catching looks, an upmarket cabin and a new diesel engine that blends strong performance and excellent efficiency, the revised Volvo V60 is able to take the fight to its premium rivals in this class.
It rivals the BMW 3 Series Touring, Mercedes C-Class Estate and Audi A4 Avant, and features a range of efficient engines and an optional eight-speed automatic gearbox. This gearbox is a £1,485 option, so it's disappointing that it doesn't shift as smoothly as the gearboxes in its rivals. A new plug-in hybrid version, which returns a claimed 150mpg and CO2 emissions of only 49g/km, is now available and the V60 is available in four-wheel-drive as well.
