The new Volvo V60 wagon is gorgeous and packed with semi-autonomous tech
Volvo has taken the wrappers of its new V60 wagon, which includes hybrid options, tech-filled extras and new semi-autonomous driver assist features.
The gorgeous new V60 premium estate wagon is inspired by the larger V90 and XC60 crossover and sits alongside those models among the most attractive cars the Swedish firm has ever produced.
For environmentalists, there’s a pair of twin engine plug-in hybrid models that retain the same 2.0 litre powertrain of the gasoline version, paired with a 65kw electric motor.

With the top-of-the-line T6 twin engines you’ll benefit from 310 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This version features an 8-speed automatic transmission and reaches speeds of 0-62mph in 5.8 seconds.
As is always the case, it’s safety first with Volvos. The driver assist features have received a boost thanks to the semi-autonomous Pilot Assist technology, which offers assistance with steering, acceleration and braking.
Volvo is also including blind spot monitoring, City Safety with Autobrake tech and those jarring lane departure warnings.
It has a built-in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both on board.
The new Volvo V60 will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, where we’re likely to learn more about the price.
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.
For that, you get the car, concierge service, a generous mileage allowance and the opportunity to upgrade after a year. Your insurance, services, roadside assistance and wear items are all catered for.
Unlike traditional leasing, there’s no down payment requested.
