Most folks acquainted with automobiles can tell you a story about an old Volvo station wagon, and how it was relegated to some sort of strenuous duty, whether it was hauling around various items, serving as the first auto for a learning driver, or being generally unstoppable during spontaneous road trips.
Volvo has also confirmed the V60 will be available as part of the super-premium Volvo Care subscription service, which starts at $600 a month.
A second version of the T6 is also expected for the USA market, and it will introduce a new plug-in hybrid powertrain to Americans.
Volvo is renowned for its supreme safety tech, so it comes as no surprise that the V60 is equipped with all manner of hi-tech driver assists. As a result, the V60 offers improved interior and luggage space.
The new Volvo V60 is 4.6 inches longer than the XC60, measuring 187.4 inches in length, while the wheelbase is 113 inches. All of which will help this new Swedish Estate blitz the Euro NCAP tests. 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.
This is Volvo so there's plenty of safety stuff on offer including City Safre with Autobrake, Pilot Assist, Run-ff Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and Cross TRaffic Alert.
The array of safety technology offered will match other latest-generation Volvos.
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. Drivers use a vertically oriented, tablet-style screen to control the various vehicle, infotainment, and connected service functions.
The 2019 Volvo V60 combines practical elements with distinctive styling. "The new V60 honors that tradition, but also takes it much further".
Unique looks, efficient power, passenger comfort, and most importantly, occupant safety, are shaped into a contemporary, refined package with the new 2019 Volvo V60.
We're expecting the new V60 to be in Volvo's United Kingdom showrooms at the end of Q2 2018, and although Volvo hasn't revealed pricing for the new V60 it should start from a bit over £30k.
