All-new Volvo V60 revealed

2018 Volvo V60 estate officially revealed

Care by Volvo is a bit like a lease but also includes insurance, maintenance like oil changes, wear and tear items like wiper blades and tires and roadside assistance.

At 4,761mm long, the new 60 stretches itself 117mm more than the XC60.

Volvo said the entirety of its range would be electrified by 2019. Production of the new S60 will take place at Volvo's new factory in SC, so it's actually quite the sensible decision. These will be joined a few months later by T5 and T6 Twin Engine hybrid models.

The V60 comes with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options: the new T6 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid which generates a combined 340 HP, or the T8 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that delivers 390 HP. The rest of the family may not appreciate you nailing sports cars off the line at the lights but the knowledge a Volvo station wagon is capable of such things will put a smile on your face.

Upgraded safety and technology features compliment a more luxurious interior.

.

It will be offered with the Swedish company's Care by Volvo subscription service, which for a flat fee covers taxes, insurance, basic maintenance and, where available, a concierge to handle tasks such as fueling, cleaning and delivering e-commerce purchases to the vehicle. This approach seeks to eliminate the need for price negotiations, down payments, and regional price differences when purchasing the 2019 V60, and bundles the monthly auto payment with insurance, maintenance, roadside assistance, and concierge services such as fueling, cleaning, and service pick-up.

As Volvo has built a reputation for building some of the safest cars in the world, it has fitted the V60 with City Safety with Autobrake - which uses autonomous emergency braking and hazard detection systems - and Pilot Assist, which can reduce driver fatigue as the vehicle can perform all major driving functions by itself at speeds up to 80mph on well-marked roads. Other standard safety features include drowsy driver monitoring and oncoming lane alert systems. Drivers use a vertically oriented, tablet-style screen to control the various vehicle, infotainment, and connected service functions. It also benefits from the latest autobraking technology.

It is a five-door, mid-size premium estate, continuing the Swedish company's tradition for producing practical and stylish family wagons.

But now we get the official take on the new V60, and it looks good.
