Volvo V60. First Look

The Volvo V60 range features sleek styling

Gothenburg, Sweden — Volvo has launched its all-new V60 sports wagon that bridges the gap between the sporty S60 sedan.

Based on the new S60 sedan that was launched last year, the new V60 is available in three models — T5, D5 AWD and T6 AWD — with the two petrol-engined T5 and T6 AWD available in both standard and sporty RDesign variants.

Powering the V60 T5 is the new 2.0-litre four-cylinder GTDi petrol engine that sends 177kW of power and 320Nm of torque to the front wheels via a dual-clutch Powershift automatic transmission.

The T6, which is standard with Volvo’s permanent all-wheel drive system, uses the upgraded 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine that produces 224kW of power and 440Nm of torque, driving all four wheels through the standard six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission with Sports mode.

The diesel D5 version is powered by a 2.4-litre five-cylinder twin turbo engine sends 151kW of power and 420Nm of torque to all four wheels through the standard Geartronic automatic transmission with Sports mode.

Both T5 and T6 AWD models are also available in the sporty R-Design variant that offers sharper looks with exterior and interior enhancements and a 15mm lowered chassis to further improve driving dynamics.

The new V60 boasts a host of standard safety features and driver assistance aids with standard fitment of Volvo’s innovative City Safety system, Emergency Brake Light (EBL) system, anti-lock brakes (ABS), driver and front passenger front and side airbags and Inflatable curtain side airbags, Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS), Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC), Advanced Stability Control (ASC) and Rollover Protection System (ROPS).

Also, optionally available is Volvo’s third generation Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system that combines Collision Warning with Full Auto Braking (CWAB), Queue Assist, Pedestrian Detection and distance alert. Lane Departure Warning combined with Driver Alert is also an option.

With a Manufacturer’s List Price (MLP) starting at $54,950, the Volvo V60 T5 offers a long list of standard comfort and convenience features.

These include Electronic Climate Control with cabin pollen filter, Cruise Control, electric windows with one touch auto up/down for front and rear, electrically retractable (and heated) exterior door mirrors, power driver seat with memory for seat and mirrors, leather trim, remote central locking, rain sensor windscreen wipers, rear Park Assist, Bluetooth connectivity and 17-inch alloy wheels.

An optional High Performance Multimedia system is also available that gains a 7-inch screen. A DVD player replaces the CD player.

This same high specification is shared with the mid-range D5 AWD turbodiesel model while the top-of the range T6 AWD also gains Volvo Navigation System (VNS), a Premium Dolby Prologic surround sound system audio unit that uses the 7- inch screen, DVD player and 12 speakers, power front passenger seat, front Park Assist and larger 18-inch alloy wheels.
