Review

The Volvo V60 edges ahead of similarly-priced premium rivals thanks to its generally comfy ride, secure handling and great interior quality. And did we mention it’s blooming roomy? That's key to an estate's appeal and it's bigger on the inside than rivals such as the Audi A4 Avant. It's a great all-rounder.

get the best price

This very expensive performance model adds beefed-up brakes, special Ohlins adjustable suspension, 19in alloy wheels, a heated steering wheel, an electrically operated driver's seat and a Harman Kardon premium sound system.

This is the most powerful V60 with a 296bhp petrol engine driving the front wheels and an 86bhp electric motor driving the rear wheels. The Polestar Engineered Recharge T8 accelerates to 62mph in 4.4sec, but it’s expensive to buy. It is a plug-in hybrid, so it has an electric-only range of 34 miles.
