The Volvo V60 isn’t supposed to be your typical load-lugging Volvo estate – that’s why they call it a Sports Wagon. That means the boot isn’t as big as you’d expect, but clever design means it’s still pretty practical. The cabin is classy and comfortable for passengers, too.
Every version comes very well equipped, with climate and cruise controls, alloy wheels, four powered windows and a host of safety kit.
The 2.0-litre D3 diesel engine will be the best-seller due to its mix of strength and affordable running costs. However, it doesn’t quite stack up on either count next to the comparable engines in rivals like the Audi A4 Avant and BMW 3 Series Touring.
The V60 isn't as much fun as the BMW to drive, either, and it’s not as refined as it should be. Even so, it’s an attractive and affordable alternative.
