Test Drive | The Volvo V60

I was given the opportunity to test the all new, ‘naughty’ Volvo in both the D5 Manual Diesel and the D3 Diesel.  It has to be said that really were quite – impressive vehicles that more than just the Volvo safety.

Today’s car is pretty much led from the by the big three; Audi, BMW and Mercedes, and in years there have many attempts by a lot of the big car brands to try and the club – however not many rejuvenated their brands to the Volvo has nor have they got as to creating the big four! The truth is; it that the only difference cars these days is the Whether a saloon or a city the technology and design behind is all pretty much on a par.

So why will the V60 make such a big on the car industry? It may well be the diversity of the the number of choices you get when your model or the little that really make you like you’re driving a model. It certainly felt as if the and finish was of a high standard, the wheel felt divine and the seats were fantastic.

Then there are the techy the park assist camera provides the driver with a view around the vehicle was surprisingly clear. Additionally the V60 had an Sat-Nav, which seemed to be one of the intelligent systems on the market. On top of impressive features – parking road and traffic information, and assist cameras were into both the D3 and the D5.

The cabin felt spacious with the electronics centre in reach to change the radio or to the Sat-Nav. The passenger seats also roomy, and both would fit five people Despite this, it felt the seat pulled forward was little headroom; I certainly a few bumps on the head when my seat!

I also didn’t feel the for the cubby hole area the Sat-Nav centre, I couldn’t see a use for it.

to the naughtier side of the V60! The D5 capacity is 2.4 litres and offers acceleration, and I mean rapid, and is smooth power delivery at all Volvo tells us it has a top speed of (not that I got anywhere and 0-60mph in 7.5 seconds.

In comparison, the D3 goes in 8.9 seconds and has a top speed of 137mph or 135mph for the auto).  The D3 engine is 2.0 turbo diesel, which is economical but still delivers on It is designed to offer ‘excellent at low revs’ Volvo says, hopes to make an engaging yet driving experience.

The D3 is definitely a for someone who wants a little power, but still the capabilities and the of the D5 and Volvo said they the D3 to be the ‘biggest seller’ in the UK.

The Volvo V60 is rather economical. The manual D5 an extraordinary 142g/km of CO 2 emissions and the D3 CO 2 emissions are 144g/km. Both engines with manual boxes are well under the CO 2 company car tax break, so the V60 manual be an ideal car for a business fleet.

I really can t fault the Volvo it s stylish and comfortable in design. It felt exceptionally easy to but didn t lack performance at the time. I wouldn’t say it was a threat to the big brands on the market, but it will be competition!

The V60 has made Volvo little bit more risky and of extremely exciting to drive!
