The V60 is Volvo’s elegant and versatile 5-door premium mid-size estate. Launched in 2010 and revamped in 2013, the V60 has been a resounding success in many of Volvo’s key markets ever since. Like its S60 sibling, it is also available as a powerful Polestar version.
As with all Volvos, the powertrain offer is based on the Drive-E 2.0 litre turbo- and super-charged engines designed and built at Volvo’s engine factory in Skövde.
The Drive-E range of low emission, high performance petrol and diesel engines offers a perfect blend of driver enjoyment and fuel economy, whilst retaining a responsive feel for city driving.
The V60 is also available in two diesel-powered Twin Engine plug-in hybrid variants. More details around the powertrain offer can be found in the Technical Specifications.
The V60 offers a full range of connectivity options that include Volvo On Call, a phone-based app that allows you to control certain features in your car, (such as pre-heating, locking and unlocking, navigation and vehicle location services). Volvo On Call now works with wearables such as Apple Watch and Android Wear and also has Windows 10 compatibility, meaning that Volvo On Call can now be operated from your PC as well as your smartphone.
Sensus delivers a range of native apps offering streaming music via TuneIn and Baidu and geo-location services (such as Yelp and Wikilocations), to name but a few. Read more about Sensus in our factsheet.
The Harman Kardon Premium Sound system is tuned to perfection in Volvo’s advanced audio lab, enabling high quality music streaming.
The V60 comes with one of the most comprehensive standard safety offers available in the segment, including City Safety, which offers a range of collision avoidance and mitigation functionalities including pedestrian and cyclist detection. A range of optional safety and convenience systems are also available in the 60 Series cars.
