The V60, Volvo's dynamic sportswagon, is aimed at those who want coupé styling and driving enjoyment but with added versatility and carrying capacity.
Based on Volvo's new S60, the most dynamic saloon in the company's range, the V60 maintains the fun-to-drive qualities and performance of its four-door counterpart but offers more space and versatility.
Volvo designers have preserved the coupé-like style of the S60. Note the low roof and wedge shape. Note also the tapered coupé-like tail. From the B-pillar forward, the V60 is identical to the S60. Rear door sheetmetal is also identical, although the windows and ‘door uppers' are different.
The roof and whole rear end are new, reflecting the re-designed tail to offer extra carrying capacity. The boot capacity is a generous 430 litres to the window line, with rear seats up, and 557 litres when loaded to the roof. When rear seats are folded, capacity jumps to a capacious 1241 litres.
Introducing the new Drive-E powertrain
Our new four-cylinder D4 engine offers performance equivalent to six and even eight-cylinder engines - giving you 181 hp, and only producing 113g/km CO2.
Volvo's new direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the GTDi (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection), is available in 150PS T3, 180PS T4 and 240PS T5 guises. The T3 and T4 units have 1.6 litres capacity, while the T5 is a 2.0 litre. In its latter guise the engine also pioneers a new sheet steel turbocharger that allows for higher temperatures, improving efficiency and cutting emissions.
The GTDi engines are available with Volvo's twin-clutch Powershift automatic gearbox, which gives lightning-fast shift changes and can also operate as a full automatic.
