Volvo V60: This is it!

Volvo V60: This is it!

The T5, T6, and T8 engines will also make their way into the new wagon; however, these engines have been revised in order to give the V60 unique performance numbers.

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.

First introduced in Europe back in 2010 before it came to America in 2014, the Swedish station wagon is overdue an update.

In the UK, Volvo will initially offer the V60 with a choice of D3 and D4 diesel engines, both with front-wheel drive and a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes. And with the debut of the redesigned 2019 Volvo V60, the company shows it's as serious as ever about this particular breed, and even more serious about redefining its image as an upscale automaker.

Volvo's mid-size V60 wagon is the latest Swede to welcome the family design language.

.

The new 2018 Volvo V60 estate - the second of Volvo's new 60 Series models - is revealed in Sweden with looks which echo those of the bigger V90, but with cues from the new XC60. Nothing has yet been said about electric range.




Volvo V60 is also offered with premium subscription service "Care by Volvo".

SWEDISH auto maker Volvo has taken the wraps off its new V60 medium sized estate vehicle which for the first time will be available as a plug-in hybrid. For the first time, City Safety includes a feature which enables automatic braking to mitigate an oncoming collision.

Meet the handsome new Volvo V60 - a new family estate set to arrive in the United Kingdom towards the end of 2018. The V60 also comes with the latest version of the company's Pilot Assist semi-autonomous system that can now operate unassisted on "well-marked roads" at a maximum speed of 80 miles per hour. The V60 also includes Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering-assistance systems.

"The new V60 honours that tradition but also takes it much further".

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 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.
