The safety feature laden and luxurious Volvo S60 gets a few updates for 2016. These include an extended-wheelbase model that offers more legroom and some changes in content for the various trim levels and options packages.

I love driving the S60, though it feels heavier than other mid-size sedans like an Acura TLX or a Lexus ES350. I think it may have to do with heavier sheet metal and other components of the S60 that lead it to such high marks in the safety and crash survival tests.

And the S60 is full of safety features. Standard safety features include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and whiplash-reducing front head restraints. Low-speed frontal collision warning and collision mitigation with automatic braking (“City Safety”) systems are standard and can help the driver avoid a collision with other vehicles or a stationary object at speeds of up to 19 mph by automatically applying the brakes if reaction from the driver isn’t quick enough.

Also standard is Volvo’s On Call system that includes emergency assistance, automatic crash notification and stolen vehicle assistance.

Included in the optional Technology package (standard on the Platinum trim) is an upgraded version of the forward collision mitigation system that adds pedestrian and cyclist detection. This package also includes electronic warnings for driver inattention, lane departure warning and lane departure intervention (Drive-E trims).

My test vehicle had this optional package and it really works. A couple of times my test Volvo told me it was time for me to take a break, because the computer/car thought I was being inattentive. I couldn’t agree more and asked the car if it could please take over my life for me so I could only think about driving when I’m driving.

It did not respond.

The 2016 S60 scored the highest possible scores when tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The S60 is available in standard and extended-wheelbase (Inscription) versions. On the standard wheelbase, the trim levels are T5 Drive-E, T5 AWD, T6 Drive-E, T6 Drive-E Platinum, T6 R-Design AWD and T6 R-Design AWD Platinum.

Trims for the extended-wheelbase Inscription models are the T5 Inscription, T5 Inscription Platinum, T5 AWD Inscription and T5 AWD Inscription Platinum.

My test vehicle was the T5 FWD Inscription model with the Platinum package. It was loaded with options.

My one complaint is the complicated navigation system.

Under the hood there was a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It was a great driving vehicle – smooth, quiet, sleek handling and good road manners.

With a good mix of highway and city miles, I got about 30 mpg for the week I drove my test S60.

The final price for my test vehicle was $45,925.
