All-new Volvo V60 family estate revealed

Share
The Swedish vehicle maker took the wraps off its new five-door mid-size premium estate in the suburbs of Stokholm to highlight what it said was Volvo Cars pedigree in family estates

The new V60 will be available with Volvo's D3 and D4 diesel powertrains as well as T5 and T6 petrol engines and will also mark the introduction of the new T6 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that generates a combined 340hp. This is the evolution of that auto and frankly, for a station wagon, it's stunning. The good news is that the new S60's debut isn't too far away, since Volvo has confirmed that it will debut this summer. It will make its public debut at upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

It hasn't even been a few hours since Volvo unveiled the brand-new V60 wagon, but already we're hearing information about when its sedan sibling will get the same treatment.

It's business as usual in the V60's smart interior, too, with a design that echoes the other cars in the range. It'll also get Volvo's new design language, looking nearly identical to the 90 series models, with "Thor's Hammer" LED headlights, L-shaped rear lights and sharp styling cues. Total system output for the plug-in T6 AWD drivetrain is 340 hp and 435 lb. -ft. of torque, with a fully electric driving range of about 28 miles.

Typical of current Volvo products, the V60 will offer all-wheel drive as standard in most of its trim levels.

It is also counting on a Saudi-Iraqi rapprochement to weaken Iran's influence there. The fighters have also been largely defeated in neighbouring Syria.

New safety features are available for the 2019 V60, and include an updated version of Volvo's City Safety suite of collision avoidance technologies. The company's Pilot Assist system that can steer, accelerate, and brake the vehicle without driver intervention will be on the options list. In a world first, City Safety now also engages autobraking to mitigate oncoming collisions. While South Carolina may seem like a unusual location for a debut, it makes sense - Volvo's new American manufacturing facility is located in Berkeley County. Volvo's newest estate is expected to arrive in showrooms in September 2018, although an exact date has not been announced.

The vehicle will also feature the company's Sensus infotainment system, which is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times.

The array of safety technology offered will match other latest-generation Volvos.

The V60 is equipped with the latest version of the Volvo's Sensus infotainment system running through a vertical tablet-style touch screen similar to the setup found in all recent Volvo releases. "The new V60 honors that tradition, but also takes it much further".
