The interior layout, fit and finish
Driving position and dashboard
All versions have a multiway adjustable steering wheel, although the reach extension it offers isn't as consummate as it is in the BMW 3 Series Touring. A height-adjustable driver’s seat and adjustable lumbar support are also standard, and from SE Technology trim the driver's seat is electrically adjustable with memory settings.
With electric adjustment fitted, the driver’s seat doesn't drop down as low as the manually adjustable version. But, no matter how it adjusts, it'll be supportive on a long trip; the Volvo V60's beautifully sculpted driver's seat is even more cosseting, though. A large, adjustable centre armrest is standard across all models.
That’s all backed up by the prolific number of parking sensors (they’re standard front and rear on all trims), while a rear-view camera is a reasonably priced option or standard on the top Laurin & Klement trim.
It’s just as good at night. There are bright LED dipped and main beam headlights fitted as standard, but it’s worth considering the excellent Matrix LED adaptive headlights. They're expensive, but you can leave them on main beams without dazzling other road users because they adapt their light output automatically to shadow the cars in front.
Sat nav and infotainment
Entry-level SE trim gets an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, a DAB radio, voice control and wireless Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto; you can use this to mirror Google Maps and Waze onto the car’s screen. From SE Technology that's boosted to include in-built sat-nav. Sportline Plus and Laurin & Klement models have a larger, 9.2in touchscreen that can display 3D maps and has enhanced connectivity.
