Volvo V60 estate officially revealed ahead of Geneva debut

Volvo V60 estate officially revealed ahead of Geneva debut

After a subtle vintage teaser and a leak, the all-new Volvo V60 is revealed in all its estate glory. The second-generation V60 is bigger, more practical, festooned with technologies and is also more handsome looking than the outgoing car. The Scandinavian estate will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

The new V60 is based on the new SPA (Scalable Product Platform) sharing it with all the other vehicles in the Volvo family.  It measures 4,761mm in length with a wheelbase of 2,872mm making it longer than the XC60 crossover-SUV. The estate now boasts of 529 litres of boot space (almost 100 litres more than older V60) which can be boosted to 1,364 litres with the rear seats folded down. That’s the best in class numbers compared to the German rivals. The crisp body lines with subtle creases and stately lines make the V60 estate look magnificent like all the current age Volvos.

Thor’s Hammer headlights are now a Volvo signature, while the rear LED tail lights and tailgate are all similar to the bigger V90. The cabin is similar to all the modern Volvos borrowing the minimum and functional interiors. There is a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, large nine-inch infotainment touchscreen with navigation and smartphone connectivity, premium materials and adequate cabin space. Being a Volvo, the V90 packs in all the safety equipment you can imagine.

Volvo will offer the V60 with two plug-in hybrid powertrains. The 2.0-litre T6 all-wheel-drive plug-in with 310bhp will sit alongside the T8 hybrid producing 303bhp. The regular petrol engine on offer will be the 242bhp T5 and 335bhp T6. The diesel options would be the four-cylinder D3 and D4 turbodiesels producing 150bhp and 180bhp respectively. 

The new Volvo V60 will go on sale in the third quarter of 2018. The estate is priced at £31,810 (Rs 28 lakhs) in the UK. Volvo will introduce the Cross Country version of the V60 Estate but that will come later. The practical estates have always been the forte of Volvo. With the new breed of these station wagons ranging from the V40 to the V90, Volvo wants to capitalise on the body style with their brilliantly packaged products. The Gothenburg-based carmaker might also bring in the V60 in India. If it does come to India, the V60 will slot in above the V40.
