2016 Volvo V60: A Simple, Humble, Sporty Wagon

When you get it, you'll definitely fall in love with it.

The 2016 Volvo V60 is an all new model, claimed and evident to be a sports wagon that has been on of the most anticipated vehicle from Volvo. Volvo blends sleek Swedish design with the latest in safety technology. The Volvo V60 is the car for people who need the versatility of an estate, but want the handling of a sports sedan. The 2016 V60 is available with full range of engines from Volvo Cars' four cylinder Drive-E powertrain family.

As with the Volvo S60, the design team has accentuated V60's road presence by emphasizing 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, its a wagon with a coupe like appearance. To enhance the visual appeal of the car, it is possible to specify the V60 with expressive 19inch wheels and keep the same profile height as 18inch ones, without compromising comfort. 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 19inch wheels.

The V60 delivers a dynamic driving experince, with the same pin-sharp handling as its sister saloon and with the same chassis options; Touring, Dynamic, Four-C(Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept) and R-Design Sport Chassis. At the top of the Drive-E is the T6 with an output of 306Hp and 400Nm of torque. The engine features a class-leading combination of a compressor and a turbo charger. Using the supercharger to fill in the bottom end gives the engine a big, naturally aspirated feel. The mechanically linked compressor starts to function immediately at low revs, while the turbocharger kicks in when the airflow builds up. Similarly, there are three other variants of chassis for customers to choose from.

IntelliSafe, Volvo's blanket name for all active safety systems, is an important part of the driver centric approach in the V60. The EPAS(Electrical Power Assist Steering), available with the Drive-E engines, uses an electrical motor to support the steering rack and the driver can choose between three levels of power assistance. In Low mode the system provides a high degree of power support, making maneuvering easier. Medium mode has somewhat lower power support to offer more road response at higher speeds. High mode is the ultimate setting for the enthusiastic driver, contributing to the car's dynamic character. The Active High Beam Control eliminates the need to switch between low and high beam. Instead, Active High Beam Control makes it possible to keep the headlights on high beam continuously.

Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surface with any unnecessary clutter removed. This is evident in the V60 interior. 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 experince. The interior detailing includes Piano Black deco option, rotary jewel-like knobs in the center stack and frameless inner rear-view mirror. 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 traditional comfort and makes a perfect addition to the in-command feel of a true driver's car. 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.
