Volvo V60

Volvo V60 no longer on the Scheme

 

The Volvo V60 is the estate version of the S60, it’s not as big as the Volvo V70 and can only offer 430 litres of luggage space with the rear seats in position but it is one the new breed of  ‘naughty Volvo’s’, offering all that is good about the Volvo brand, with the addition of a desirability factor and head turning edge that has been missing over the years. The V60 is a great looking car, big, sleek and once inside it feels wonderfully comfortable, unquestionably safe, and capable of anything.

 

There are a number of models, the SE feels very swish for an entry level car and offers all you need to enjoy the V60, cruise control, 17″ alloy wheels, electronic climate control, an exceptional audio system with a 5″ colour display screen, the SE lux adds leather upholstery, powered drivers seat adjustment and electronic head restraints. The new ‘Business Edition’ has 16″ alloys wheels and a 7″ multimedia display with an integrated sat nav but a slightly downgraded interior. The R-Design has 18″ alloys, twin exhaust pipes, sports seats and steering wheel. The new V60 Cross Country combines cross country design cues such as 65mm extra ground clearance, charcoal wheel arch extensions, front and rear skid plates and a unique front grille, with features of the SE model and is available in front or all wheel drive.

 

The engine choice is between three 2.0 litre four cylinder diesel engines, the D2 has 120bhp, the D3 has 150 and the D4 has 190bhp. economy is an excellent 74.2mpg for the D2, 70.6mpg for the D3 and D4. The performance increases in correlation to the power output, the D2 can reach 62 miles per hour in 11.5 seconds the D3 in 9.1 seconds and the D4 in a very fast 7.7 seconds. The Cross Country V60 is paired to the D4 engine only. Automatic options are a Geartronic D2 in SE trim or an all wheel drive D4 8 speed Geartronic on the Cross Country. There is only the one V60 available this quarter.
