The new Volvo V60 is a versatile family estate car that helps you make the most of every moment. An advanced chassis, powerful engines and a choice of driving modes put you at the centre of an engaging driving experience. Inside, Scandinavian craftsmanship combines with smart technology to create a place where you will always enjoy spending time. And, inside and out, the new V60 exhibits the quality and sense of purpose that define the best Scandinavian design.
The New V60 has five supportive seats, meaning comfort for all. The folding rear backrest has a useful 60/40 split and an electrically operated folding backrest is optional.
With exceptional load space, at a volume of 529 litres to the top of the rear backrest, including the storage compartment under the floor, and up to 1364 litres when both parts of the rear backrest are folded, the V60 has one of the most practical and useful interiors. The load compartment includes a storage area under the floor that keeps valuable items out of sight and is locked together with the tailgate, as well as four shopping bag hooks and load securing eyelets that allow a variety of items to be transported safely.
The interior has a sleek centre display with touch screen and distinctive air vents featuring a vertical central strip with a metal finish. The materials used in the cabin of the new V60 enhance the feeling of modern Swedish luxury on board. Inscription trim includes decor in Driftwood – a unique wood treatment that is satisfying to look at and touch, and which references Volvo Cars’ Swedish heritage.
The new V60 is available with a panoramic roof that bathes the interior in natural light. Its large area means that those in both the front and rear seats can benefit from it, while special tinted glass reduces the transmission of unwanted heat and UV radiation. A power-operated sunshade made of perforated material makes it easy to keep strong light out if necessary, while the large front part of the roof can be tilted or opened to provide extra ventilation.
Volvo Cars' Sensus infotainment system is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. The system is controlled via an intuitive tablet-style touch screen that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and entertainment apps.
Reflecting Volvo Cars' industry-first announcement to electrify all new cars from 2019, the V60 comes with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options: the new T6 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that generates a combined 340 hp, or the T8 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that delivers 390 hp.
The regular petrol choice includes T5 or T6 powertrains and drivers who prefer diesel can select D3 or D4 engines.
The new V60 reinforces Volvo Cars' standing as the industry leader in safety, with a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, including advanced driver-support systems known from the 90 series and XC60, making the new V60 one of the safest cars on the road.
The City Safety with Autobrake technology uses automatic braking and detection systems to assist the driver in avoiding potential collisions, and is the only system on the market to recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals. In a world first, City Safety now also engages autobraking to mitigate oncoming collisions.
The Pilot Assist system – which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 80 mph – has been upgraded with improved cornering performance. The V60 also includes Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering-assistance systems. The optional Cross Traffic Alert with autobrake further improves safety for people inside and outside the car.
