2015.5 S60 Sport Package

19" wheels, stiffer suspension, and paddle shifters.

Been driving this car for about 500 miles. Paddle shifters are silly. I like the sports suspension (it's tight, and even though the the car is FWD) it drives tight almost like my previous German cars. Maybe a little rougher than Bilstein touring shocks but not so tight as Bilstein sport shocks. But I think if I were to do it over again, I wouldn't go 19" wheels. With the low-profile Pirelli's you're going to feel the road a lot more -- esp. some of the LA freeways and this in neighboring counties. On perfect freeways it's perfect, on less-than-perfect freeways not so much. If you're doing distance driving on less-than-perfect highways or freeways, it's something to consider.

Apparently, in Southern California, they're pushing the sports package. Trying to make the Volvo "hip" it was suggested to me. I think it's a little overkill.

That's my initial impression.
