2018 Volvo V60 reader test team review
Can Volvo continue its winning streak with this new mid-sized V60 estate? What Car? readers give their verdict...
Few brands have capitalised upon the SUV revolution quite so triumphantly as Volvo. Its XC90 seven-seater remains a big seller, as does its smaller XC60, while its latest effort, the XC40, won our 2018 Car of the Year Award.
But estates are a mainstay for the brand, and its latest is this new V60, which it claims will be a leader in terms of space, luxury, tech and safety. Indeed, it has a bigger boot than any rival, while its interior is plusher than its predecessor’s and features a new infotainment touchscreen and digital instrument display. Lane-keeping assist and automatic emergency braking are standard, with more safety systems as options.
From the off, the V60 will offer a 247bhp petrol engine and diesel units with 148bhp and 187bhp. A plug-in hybrid model will arrive shortly after.
Having driven the car, we’ve given it four stars, but will our readers agree? We invited them to view it at Volvo’s UK headquarters to find out.
