Official: New Volvo V60 Is A Sexy Wagon Packed With Advanced Tech
21 February, 2018, 21:42
Volvo Cars, the premium auto maker, today revealed the new V60 five-door, mid-size premium estate, underlining the Swedish company's position as a maker of cars that combine good looks with everyday practicality.
First introduced in Europe back in 2010 before it came to America in 2014, the Swedish station wagon is overdue an update.
The new V60's wheelbase stretches 113 inches, almost four inches longer than the model it replaces.
But it comes as a price as the new hi-tech estate has gone up market and is expected to cost from around £28,000 - or about £3,000 more than the model it replaces.
"The family estate driver is an important customer for our business and has been for generations", said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars.
The stylish, 2019 V60 seats five, rides on Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, and is available with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options.
Other changes for the V60 include a T6 engine that will be offered in two flavors, a standard 310-horsepower gas-only version, and a 340-horsepower plug-in hybrid variant.
Volvo has revealed the latest version of its popular estate, which gets advanced technology to make it "one of the safest cars on the road". The City Safety with Autobrake technology uses automatic braking and detection systems to assist the driver in avoiding potential collisions.
A pair of plug-in hybrid versions of the V60 will be available in certain markets, but Volvo says they're not coming to the US -at least not initially. 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 auto. The company's Pilot Assist system that can steer, accelerate, and brake the vehicle without driver intervention will be on the options list. In a world first, City Safety now also engages autobraking to mitigate oncoming collisions.
The vehicle will also feature the company's Sensus infotainment system, which is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times.
