2016's: Volvo V60Del Stewart

The Volvo V60 is the car for people who need the versatility of an estate but want the handling of a sports sedan - all in a stylish Scandinavian package.

The 2016 V60 is available with full range of engines from Volvo Cars’ four-cylinder Drive-E powertrain family. Fuel consumption in a V60 D2 with 120 hp and manual gearbox is down to 3.7 l/100 km, translating into CO2 emissions at 98 g/km.

DESIGN

Accentuated road presence

As with the Volvo S60, the design team has accentuated V60's road presence by emphasising its horizontal lines, which visually connects the car directly to the road. The V60's silhouette is a visual reminder that this is no ordinary estate - it's a wagon with a coupé-like appearance.

To enhance the visual appeal of the car, it is possible to specify the V60 with expressive 19-inch wheels and keep the same profile height as 18-inch ones, without compromising comfort.

Model year 2016 updates include new wheels (17”, 18” and 19”) and three new exterior colours: Magic Blue, Osmium Grey and Onyx Black.

Refined interior

Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed.  This is evident in the V60 interior and exterior. Inside, the attention to detail, the authentic materials - such as wood and leather - and the easy-to-use controls contribute to the in-command driving experience. The interior detailing includes a Piano Black deco option, rotary jewel-like knobs in the centre stack and a frameless inner rear-view mirror. 

At the heart of the extra versatility of the V60 is its intelligent seating. The rear seats can be folded down in three 40/20/40 segments, so that the rear 430 litres of load space can be supplemented quickly and easily. Parents favour the V60's two-stage integrated booster cushions for children. with one simple movement, the booster cushions pop-up from the seat base giving a comfortable and safe ride height for children from three years and upwards.

Comfortable sport seat

Supportive yet comfortable seats that ensure a fresh and relaxed arrival after the longest of journeys have been one of Volvo strengths for decades. The buyer of the V60 can specify a sport seat that retains this traditional comfort and makes a perfect addition to the in-command feel of a true driver's car. It has great hugging side support all the way from the thighs to the shoulders, so the seat keeps the driver firmly in position when cornering at speed.

R-DESIGN

Unique new front

The V60 R-Design features a unique face with a dynamic, expressive nose. The DRL lights in the outer corners reinforce the low, road-hugging impression. At the rear, the unique diffuser with aero fins is flanked by the round, high-tech R-Design tailpipes. The R-Design version is now available with 19" wheels.

R-Design interior

The sport seat comes as standard in the V60 R-Design. It features a blend of black nubuck textile and perforated leather. By blending inlays with a perforated look, black leather and contrasting stitching, the design team has created an R-design interior with all the details in perfect harmony, crowned by the black headliner.
