IMO, Volvo always did a horrible job with design, never liked most of their designs and the new S60 is no different. Plus for almost the same price of that S60, I rather have a CLA 250 4Matic!

Huge difference is the fuel economy for those who cares about that. Although no published numbers yet for the CLA, it has been estimated that it will be around 40 mpg combined. That's much better than the 25 mpg for the S60 T5.

Good point, getting the best MPG possible is huge these days especially when the difference is as big as this. I rather have a sexy CLA that gets 40 MPG than some boring and ugly Volvo that gets 25 MPG.

They have "refreshed" the design on the 2014 MY. Along with new dash layout with changeable active tft display. IIHS Top Safety Pick. AWD optional. Updated "sensus" to be touch screen with wifi. Sensus is Volvo's name for MB Command just FYI.
I have a 2012 S60 now and get just about 33 highway MPG.
Also a HUGE difference in fuel tank capacity
S60 17.8 gal
CLA 13.2 gal
Hmm here is a thought am I trying to convince myself or you guys lol

I do like the larger fuel tank but the difference in fuel economy may make it a wash.

I would be surprised if the CLA 4matic gets 40 mpg. In any case I totally agree the CLA is a really hot looking car. I personally prefer the CLA style over the C class. Which is why I am interested in the CLA even tho my fully config price on the CLA is more than a well equipped C class
