Volvo puts $3000 premium on V60

Ikea hauler: Volvo’s all-new V60 wagon adds an extra door and more cargo space to the S60 sedan menu.

Keen pricing and a long options list emerges for Volvo s all-new V60 wagon

11 March 2011

VOLVO Car Australia has placed a $3000 premium on the five-door wagon version of its all-new S60 sedan, the V60, which will be formally launched late this month.

Official manufacturer s list prices obtained by GoAuto for Volvo s most important new model in 2011 show the entry-level V60 T5 will carry a sticker price of $54,950, representing a $3000 premium over the equivalent S60 T5 sedan ($51,950) that became available in Australia this week.

The five-variant Belgian-built mid-size V60 wagon line-up will mirror the closely related S60 sedan range that was launched in D5 turbo-diesel and T6 turbo-petrol guises in December, before being joined by entry-level T5 and more sporting R-Design versions this week.

That means the base V60 T5 will come with the same Ford-sourced 177kW/320Nm 2.0-litre GDTi turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and front-wheel drive configuration as this month s new S60 T5 sedan and XC60 T5 crossover, which were released in the same week as a thorough 2011 upgrade for the entire Volvo model range.

Matched exclusively with a six-speed dual-clutch PowerShift automated manual transmission the sub-$55,000 base-level V60 T5 is also $10,500 more expensive than the cheapest version of Volvo s smaller S40-based wagon the more accurately named V50 T5 S ($44,450), which is powered by a 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine and also costs $3000 more than the S40 T5 on hich it’s based.

As with the new S60, the base V60 T5 will be available in R-Design form for a further $4200 ($59,150), returning the same combine fuel consumption of 8.7 litres per 100km 0.4L/100km more than the S60 T5.

Priced at $60,950, the mid-range V60 D5 AWD powered by the same 151kW 2.4-litre inline five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine as the S60 D5 AWD drives all four wheels via a conventional Geartronic torque converter automatic transmission and returns 7.1L/100km.

Rounding out the V60 range to be launched on March 28 will be the 224kW 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six-cylinder petrol-engined T6 AWD, which at $67,950 is just $2000 more affordable than the larger but relatively new V70 wagon, and its range-topping R-Design sibling ($72,150), which also comes only in AWD Geartronic guise returning 10.3L/100km.

As with the S60, all V60 models have an 1800kg braked towing capacity (750kg unbraked) and measure 4628mm long, 1865mm wide, 1462mm high and ride on a 2776mm wheelbase, but the wagon derivative is up to 75kg heavier with tare weights ranging between 1653kg (T5) and 1804kg (T6).

Again reflecting the S60 line-up, standard V60 safety equipment will include the pedestrian-friendly City Safety system, electronic stability control, ABS brakes, Roll Over Protection System (ROPS), latest-generation Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) and twin front, front-side and full-length side curtain airbags.

Also standard across the range is climate-control, cruise control, leather trim, a High Performance sound system, power windows, retractable exterior mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity, reversing sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels, while the T6 adds 18-inch alloys.

R-Design models add a more aggressive front bumper with gloss black grille, colour-matched body components, larger intakes for the rear diffuser, twin exhaust outlets, five-spoke 18-inch Ixion diamond-cut alloy wheels, sports seats with larger squab bolsters trimmed in R-Design leather, a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, sports leather gearshifter, sports pedals and R-Design floor mats, trim inlays and watch-dial instruments.

The V60 R-Design chassis has been lowered by 15mm via 15 per cent stiffer springs accompanied by firmer anti-roll bars and a front strut tower brace under the bonnet a move that Volvo says increases body rigidity and steering feel while the standard S60 s twin-tube rear dampers have been replaced with mono-tube dampers and the bushings that attach the rear dampers to the body have been stiffened by 20 per cent.

An extensive V60 options list will include adaptive cruise control ($4175), Volvo s Blind Spot Information System ($1275), a reversing camera ($795), interior compass ($100), Urbane wood interior inlays ($700), bi-Xenon headlights ($2650), inclination sensor ($975), Volvo Guard alarm ($850), grocery bag holder ($200), humidity sensor ($150) and even a sunglass holder ($100).

V60 options continue with a sunroof ($2650), lane departure warning system ($2075), electric folding head restraints ($200), heated front and rear seats ($325 each), speed-sensitive steering ($800), Four-C active suspension ($4175), Nivomat self-levelling suspension ($1350), headlight washers ($275) and a range of tinted and/or water-repellent rear windows ($200-$850).

Also like the S60, Volvo is considering more fuel-efficient DRIVe versions of the V60 for Australia, while a plug-in hybrid version of the V60 wagon was revealed at this month s Geneva motor show.

Confirmed for left-hand drive production in 2012 and on the wish-list for Australia, the plug-in V60 returns just 1.9L/100km and emits less than 50 grams of CO2 per kilometre thanks to a 50kW electric motor that drives the rear wheels and a 150kW/440Nm 2.4-litre D5 diesel that drives the front wheels.
